We all seem to have times when we forget that our words have terrific influence on those around us. The spoken word is extremely powerful. It can make us or break us, hurt others or heal others. Think before you speak. Literally bite your tongue if necessary. Once blurted out, you cannot take your words back. So, watch what you say. And speak kind words to others!

Suggestions
Be aware of not only what you say but how you say it.
A kind word is never wasted.
Bite your tongue before you allow an unkind comment to flow out.
Try not to curse or use foul language.
If you do not have anything good to say about someone, don’t say anything at all.
Do not gossip.
What we say can help or hurt people.
Our mouths have this wonderful ability to form a thing called a smile. Use that ability more often. Smiles are free and meant to shared.
