A Penny For Your Thoughts

By Nancy Whitaker:

A SMILE, A WINK AND A THUMBS UP

How many times have we said, “I wish I hadn’t said that.” “I wish I could take those words back,” or “I just stuck my foot in my mouth by saying those words?”

Some people are born to talk, while some are not as verbal. As for me, I think I could talk before I was potty trained. I do remember a conversation being held at church when I was little and I chirped up and put in my two cents worth.

My grandma was involved in the discussion and what I repeated was something I had heard grandma repeat at home about another church goer. Needless to say I was told that children should be seen and not heard.
