It's funny how life takes us in a full circle. As a child my mom used to say, "Tricia, you only speak when you have something important or meaningful to say." Yes...and what a valuable skill...and "chit chat" has it's value too. Listen carefully with your eyes and ears. Think before you speak. Share from your heart and your experiences.
