At the end of the day, I made a comment...I'm not really sure why, but I did.
Twenty minutes later, a person somewhat involved with the comment walked into my room. It was odd to see her, since I haven't seen her lately, but I wondered why she was in my room. Oh stupid me.
Thankfully, she honors our friendship enough to call me out on my stupid comment. Thankfully, she loves me enough to question why I would say what I did. Thankfully, she has the grace to forgive me.
While it was humbling to receive the correction, I am thoroughly ashamed that my words hurt two amazing people who I dearly love, honor, and admire. I can only move forward. Tomorrow I have the choice to stop and think before I speak. The bigger question is, how do I do that?
