#12 Reflections "Words"

Words
By Mary K Mennenga

Words are used to convey
Thought, feelings, intent or information
The lack of words can say more than you may think
Words have no meaning if
There's no action to back them up
So let your actions speak your words for you
It takes the guesswork out of
What your trying to say

ah reading people... words are not always true but actions are.... i teach ADA for the Department of Justice and one of the points that is made has to do with exactly this.. the people of the Deaf community make fun of hearing people because we are stoic, unemotional, and they often feel our words don't match our body language.... so true!

Thanks Sherri... The more people try to say how much they care the less I tend to believe them.

You've got it so right! Words mean squat if that is all that is offered.

This is the way I feel! Actions behind the words is it...
