Imagine Mr. T (who is celebrating his 60th birthday today!) pointing his finger at you and saying in his raspy, almost harsh, voice, “Watch yo’ mouth, fool!” That’s how I would summarize what we’ve read today.

I’m learning that I don’t always have to tell people what I know, nor always be right. I don’t always need to air my own opinions, nor do I need to participate in discussions. For someone who talks a lot, this is very difficult to do, but it is ever so rewarding in the end.
