I have never been accused of not speaking my mind or of not speaking the truth - which are not the same thing, of course. But, Grandmother's lesson this month is challenging, don't you think? ...speaking the truth as it is called to be spoken in a way that others can hear. Finding the courage to do that in tough situations, not out of anger, frustration or admonition, but from a place of understanding and without an agenda to change a situation. Instead to speak to what is and recognize that whether things change as we desire them to change is not for us to determine.
