29 February 2016


i shared a post this morning
then removed it, realizing 
my words were not well tamed
and wouldn't be received well.
yep. swept it away.
sometimes it's best to remain
quiet rather than open one's mouth
making it evident i'm a fool.
which i am. which we all are
one time or another. 
but in hindsight, that
post just wasn't necessary.
and that's all i'll say on that subject.
for now.

You have great discipline, Sherry. Sometimes I'm just in a funky mood and write the words that I'm thinking. I do realize that some might not share the same thoughts......but end of posting anyways. You have give some wonderful words of wisdom on here today, and I appreciate that very much. Sometimes it's better left unsaid.

Have a beautiful week.

You are wise. I'm learning.

Love you, and your openness.

Sherry said...

you're a dear. hugs.

Sherry said...

i'm learning. and re-learning.
seems i'm in detention quite a lot.

Sounds like a wise lady...lol- I often say my fav options when posting are the backspace key and the DELETE OPTION..AND Lord help me know when to use them.

Sherry said...

or.. if it's an audible blunder, say, "gasp! did i say that out loud?! cancel that." {it happens...}

You are wise. Sometimes there is release in simply writing something down and then tearing it up.

By the way, I wanted to say I am sad for the hurt you experienced, in the first place. Peace to you.

Sherry said...

but sometimes i'm wise a tad late in the game. wink.
and thank you .. :)

Silence is golden as they say, and the fact that you wrote such words to erase and delete is all that needed to be written.... It gave you some closure to the reasoning behind the need to write such words in the first place, therapy in a way.

This very raw side you show us only proves to us all, that we are human, and defiantly not perfect, that words sometimes are said without thinking, or just have to be said. In any case, I love, and adore you, this raw side you show us is BIG ! This was a beautiful emotion filled post.

Yes my dear sweep it away, Wink.

Ps... If anyone dare write a book, it should be you, your little winking blunders should be printed to pages that inspire taking a moment to think.

You have a way with words that touch our hearts.

If only we could take back our spoken words when they aren't necessary!

Sherry said...

raw indeed. sometimes i'm a regurgitated mess!!
and thank you. very kind. merciful actually.

Sherry said...

still working on that one. the book.
compiling. writing. deleting. scratching.
should be a real page turner. ha!

Sherry said...

i so agree, ad. i SO agree.
there are times in life that loved ones found
me head down in the sand attempting to hide.

Hmmm, I recently had a think-before-you-blog-it moment. Well, actually more like days, not moment (sigh). I read something that just kept eating at me, but I realized if I blogged about it I would probably offend some people I really care about. "“Is it true; is it kind, or is it necessary?” -- I try to keep that quote (Socrates, maybe. . .not sure) in mind. It's a struggle for me sometimes, as I really like to share my opinion. LOL But, in reality, the Lord makes a much better sounding board and He'll tell me the truth about my feelings. Ouch. Got a band-aid?
