In Jest

You said it in jest
Laughter can shatter a heart
Pieces still missing

    Probably gone up the vacuum cleaner, lol, this is how you find out who your friends are my little Desert Orchid, not worth worrying about. Take care , Richard

    Oh my this is so true. It can hurt to be on the receiving end of a joke. So much worse when friends join in. Very powerful few words!

    I have been there many times. I developed a quick wit and was able to turn the tables quickly and that stopped them in their tracks.

    Eileen. I read a comment you left for someone else so I thought I would stop here. This sounds like an ouch. People can hurt us. I know when I do something like that I try to apologize. While some conflict is inevitable, it's nice when people try to smooth things over and try to be kind. You sound like a magnificent soul!

    An ouchie, indeed! I'm ultra sensitive. So, that doesn't help! Yes...kindness wins the day. Thanks for stopping by...I don't know about magnificent, but I AM a very caring soul... :) Enjoyed the visits to you work today...
