Thank you passing shadows, I'm glad it inspired you.
Thank you Steven. Yes, it is amazing how much power a kind word has, and equally how much a single unkind word does too. And it is always a choice, one makes, and not always an easy one. Also, tough love and/or the right thing to do, is not always understood by the recipient and even sometimes the giver. And that is where communication comes in. But before there can be communication, both/all parties have to be ready to really hear the other party/parties and understand where they are coming from. How complex it is to get on with one's fellow man! And how incredibly easy it is to get on with animals! Sorry for all the long-winded philosophising. No, I take that back. I'm not sorry at all. It is fun to air one's views and I was enjoying myself!
Thank you so much, Kate. That's what I tried. It's good to know I succeeded.
