Take Care How You Build

A p r o n h e a d -- Lilly Green

186 - Copy

A kind word and a mean word do not weigh the same, word for word.

Kind words are light and porous–beautiful–and only make a solid structure with many upon many upon many.  The weight multiples as the words do and stronger becomes the structure.

Sadly, it only takes one badly-placed mean word–hard and dense–to destroy a whole series of kindnesses.  Repair and healing take time,

and often a scar remains.

Take care how you build.
