- words -


 After watching this video about 100 times because it made my heart melt so much, I started thinking about the power of words. How these simple words out of my toddler's mouth can make my heart laugh and sing...and oppositely, how hurt and stung I have felt by angry, mean words that have been directed towards me in the past. This also made me think about how I might have hurt other people in the past with the words that have escaped my lips. Words do so much more than people usually realize.

Please think about the power your words have before saying things in anger or haste. Words are so, so powerful. Loving words can make you so happy...they can absolutely make your day! While hurtful words can simply crush your soul.

The world would be a better place with a lot fewer hurtful words and a lot more simple, loving, caring words like Ellie's!

Words have a way of lasting a lifetime in your heart. Hence the importance of watching what we say, they can really tear someone down or lift someone up. Cute video.
