Something, albeit short

Valentines day. In my family it is a bittersweet day as we celebrate the love we have for those around us, and commemorate the second anniversary of the tragic death of a cousin. I guess sometimes we have to face the hard things in life to understand how good it really can be. Love those around you while you can, you never know when they might not be around. I came across a really great though last week, I'll pass it along.

When you are about to speak about someone else, we would all do well to think about these three points before opening our mouths.
(1) Is it true?
(2) Is it necessary?
(3) Is it kind?

An interesting principle to live by. I wonder how much more love there would be if we put some extra thought into what we were about to say.
