You can catch more flies...

...with honey! I know you've probably heard that saying all your life, as have I. Although, I've never really practiced the concept. My nature (being Italian) is to come out swinging with both hands. I have never backed down, nor away from, any kind of confrontation. I'm sure that's not good for my health and it seems the older I get, the shorter my fuse gets, hence more stress, hence more headaches...etc.

Gary, on the other hand, is a master at letting things go. As I stated in a previous post, water off a duck's back! So, I decided I was going to test the concept. Without too many details, I've had a thorn in my side for several months now and was dealing with a situation that kept getting worse. The more I tried to fight it, the more it fed the beast!

"You can catch more flies with honey!" Gary kept saying to me. Alright, hon, I'll give it a shot and try it your way. Well, wouldn't you know...the beast is retreating and I think we might even have some semblance of a friendship blossoming.

Okay Gary, pay attention, you don't get this too often...you were RIGHT!

6 sweet friends had to say...:

I am so proud of you - that is so hard and being a ministers wife is a job unto istself! ( not that I would know because most people don't expect much out of a pilots wife but bunko and tennis....LOL!!)

I have some experience with this - so I know what you mean....

It is a blessing to "bless those who curse you.." - it's just that it is so hard to do at times.....
