My sister said something today that both hurt me and made me think.
“I have foot in mouth disease but not nearly as bad as my mother or my sister.”
Now, I’m the first to admit that we Bennett women (mom, Robin and me) do say things that we regret. But her emphasis was such that I always say stupid things. And that hurt. Honestly. I have struggled all my Christian life with my mouth. I’ve said things I regretted and apologized. I’ve kept things in and regretted not being honest. I’ve blurted out first reactions instead of letting things percolate and then, calmly, respond properly.
Obviously, I need work on this some more.
