“Watch Your Mouth”

I don’t know about you, but it was my mother who taught me how to act in polite society.  Many people call that “couth.”  (I always thought that was a slang word, but Webster’s Dictionary says it really exists.)  She taught me what to say when we met people in the grocery store, what was appropriate at the dinner table, etc.  When I said something inappropriate, she might have said, “watch your mouth.”

There is amazing wisdom there for us, no matter our age.  What do we say about life–our money, our relationships, our health?  Do we remember that our words (especially starting with I AM) have amazing power?  And how often do we say, “I can’t afford it?”
