Would be interesting to see a "fill in the blank" on this one. I agree with Vintage by Lou Lou, words can have great power. Lovley.

Good stuff. A great list and it gave me lots to think about!

Julie Harward said...

Hi sweet Koralee...love you! I agree with these except the death one...it is heart breaking for those who are left behind and we so miss that person but death is also a new beginning for the one who dies...a glorious coming home for them. And I believe we will be together with them again..for all eternity! Come say hi :D

Kerry said...

Privet and Holly said...

I will think a bit more closely about the words that I choose today. I like to think of the positive ones as little gifts that I am free to share as I journey through my day.... from the ones I dispense as my children get on the bus, to the ones I give to the clerk at the grocer's or the person on the other end of the telephone. And a smile as I say them underscores them even more! Many hugs to you.

Words are so VERY powerful. Perhaps not always alone. But when coupled with other words, often profound.

i love how you transform a powerful quote
into a string of pearls.

such a gift of expression, for which i am
grateful.

Barbara said...

I like the powerful words- and differ with a couple of them, or at least would add a couple. I think jealousy is a cruel word. (Revenge can be fun) And Lonely is a bitter word. Alone is way different. I am basically alone but I am happy. If I were lonely, that would be tragic.

I love the image that you created. it's so perfect.
