This sunset photo was taken last week. There was a nice breeze blowing which created a ripple effect on the lake which marred the reflection in the water. It got me to thinking about the ripple effect of words spoken or written. A careless word tossed out can create a ripple of hurt that is often not intended, but once said it can cause hurt feelings or heartache. Likewise, a kind word spoken or written can bring joy and comfort which can last for some time.
The comments I received on my post written for Kris were so kind and I thank you all so much! The feature was fun to do, but at the same time a bit scary as I'm not one to talk about myself too much.
But, those ripple effects of kindness have carried me through the past 48 or so hours as I've been really sick with some kind of virus. I've had fever, chills, sore throat, headache and stomach cramps. I have been fortunate not to get very sick the past few years, so this hasn't been much fun. My head has been so befuddled that I barely know what day it is. The worst is over now, I think, and I'll catch up with everyone as soon as I can!
PS To my new followers: please leave me a comment with a link to your blog and I'll be happy to follow you back. Thanks!
Happy Tuesday to you!
