A dear friend came over a couple of weeks ago and we chatted for a long time. We have been friends for around 44-45 years. We went to med school together and were in high school before that.
Friends are the family we choose for ourselves and the basic reason for that is that we recognize certain traits in them which match our own. It takes a kindred soul to recognize another. In other words, it takes one to know one!
This saying could be applied to other situations too, like when a crook/con-man recognizes another without evidence because there is something that hints at their inner truth. Similarly, a person can connect to another with having similar interests or convictions.
Welcome back to the Wednesday Thoughts challenge, hosted by Jim.The theme this week is; “better left unsaid” so write a poem or a story, and express your thoughts, even if you feel that some things are better left unsaid.
Don’t say it If it is hurtful Or it may cause a rift Maybe make other feel uncomfortable Perhaps it will be better If it is left unsaid
Watering the lawn, washing the car or doing laundry is tempting fate to rain that day
Saying things are going well is indeed tempting fate to make them go awry
Saying that you never lose your way is definitely a challenge to the fate to make you get lost and waste hours of precious time
Don’t challenge Murphy to mess up your day, so even if you want to brag about something, do it very quietly in your mind!
Wednesday Thoughts,is a new challenge hosted by Jim. This is a challenge where you can do what you want to do, or be what you want to be, but you are encouraged to use the theme which is “tempting fate” for this week and write a poem or a story, or whatever you like.
