More Musings from Mary

Have you ever noticed that assumptions and gossip are almost always negative? And usually false, created through the prism of one’s own experience for one’s own agenda. Why is that? Why don’t people assume the best of each other and gossip about each other’s finer attributes? Don’t they know that “the fragrance of the rose lingers on the hand that casts it” ? (William Shakespeare).
Don’t they see that the dirt of the mud stains the hand that slings it ! (Mary Rita Scott).


This is the beautiful bouquet hand picked by my lovely daughter, Katharine, for me for Mother’s Day. I hope the fragrance of these flowers lingers on her fingers for as long as they continue to bloom on the table in my dining room, in the picture on this post, and always in my heart.

And…a word to all you mudslingers out there…here’s a challenge…see if you can get through a day without a negative assumption or a gossip and gripe session. By the way, did I tell you how pissed off I was when… oops…it ain’t easy! Is it even possible? I’ve heard that you should not say anything that is not: 1. true 2. kind and 3. necessary. That leaves me speechless!!!
