Tell the Truth but do it tactfully

Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do, and what is right to do. I have a right, to tell the truth, and to do it tactfully!

A couple of quotes, there are so many but I liked these two.

 “Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.”- Spencer Johnson.

 “Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life.”- Albert Schweitzer. — Abortion comes to my mind!

Be happy, be ethical.

The Daily Word Prompt

My short story hopefully has a beginning, middle and ending!

++++

One fine day, set on minding my own business, I set out for a long walk in the park. A little dog ran up to me, jumping, growling showing his teeth but did not bark. The incident startled me and took me to bounce back, but then the pup started to cower at my feet. I petted him to give him confidence hoping he would perceive my natural love of animals. Strange as it sounds, the doggy dropped from its mouth what appeared to be a wallet packed with money. I saw an angry woman with a baleful voice running toward me, yelling, “thief, thief.” 

Where is Perry Mason when I need him? I thought.

I Would Rather be! in 99-words

People are funny that way!
Noticing now in my prime,
when dreaming of what they would rather be doing.
The youth often thinks of something in the future—middle
age thinks of something in the present, and the very elderly
think of the past.
If I were ten, I would rather be swimming.
If I were sixteen, I would rather be flirting with the boys.
If I were thirty or forty, I would rather be on my vacation.
If I were sixty, I would rather be retired
If I were eighty-one or older, I would rather be done.

Whatsoever IS

Lovely is as Lovely does

Whatsoever is Lovely

This is my third time participating in this fairly new challenge known as:

“Whatsoever is Lovely”

+++++++++++++++++++++

This week I found two Lovelies from my pictures stored in my computer, one is a tree that reminds me of a dancer so I incorporated one into the image. The other is SNOW, that white fluffy stuff hanging onto my bird feeder waiting for Spring.

Fandango, Weekly Prompt

Lines that rhyme two prompts in one post.

Two in One PromptS today the words are number ONE (1) MAVEN

and (2) OVERTHINKERS

Just a simple poem with seven syllables in each line and a little rhyme.

Commonsense not aplenty
At times my mind is empty!
Now again, I need a pro.
A Maven Someone that shows—
An overthinker, you know
With brains with tiny blinkers.
Speaking way over my head;
Do I follow what was said?
You tell them they are funny,
They think we are the dummy!
Their kind are easily smart
When puzzled, they press restart.

dVerse, poetry

Help Me, I’m Falling

dVerse, I haven’t visited dVerse for a while; strolling over to see what they are doing, I almost slipped on the ice. An action that yes, is complete in a minute. Falling on ice that is. Poetry in action! What am I talking about go and see, visit dVerse and join in?

Following their instructions, I came up with what they call “The Minute Poem.”

I wish I had a better last line, if you think of one put it into the comments below. Remember it has to rhyme with the word “Lamp.”

Slippery When Old

Oh no no, it's snowing! Amen
Cold wind again
Pray I don't fall
I'll have to crawl

Winter season is way too long
Your walking wrong
Stay off that ice
I'll say it twice

Dreaming now of a day in May
Ice go away
Or a sun lamp
Equal to camp


P.S. Don't worry about me, I always say a pray before I walk on ice and have my cleats on my boots.  Cleats won't help me if I fall from grace but the prayer will help!
#WQWWC, Word of the Day Challenge

A Time to REFLECT is now!

Great Minds think alike — Click here and here to see the greats today!

REFLECTIONS

Not sure who’s challenge this belongs to; BOTH; the word “reflection” seems to be quite popular today, perhaps because we are at the end of the year, and it seems natural to reflect. The unfinished picture, our life! “I am walking in a path by which I shall not return.” Job 16;23
We can not retrace not one step; whatever we have done (exactly) today is done. Never to have that little or hour back, which hopefully it was not wasted time. I may have other opportunities to please God, but the past is the past. Reflect on that for the New Year!

Share your World

A New Year, what’s next?

One good reason to participate in this challenge known as Share-your-world is to allow you to examine your conscience, a big something for me!

See the questions by clicking above to share your world. We want to know!

For New Year’s Eve, I will be sleeping at my age but will awake slightly when I hear the much younger generation celebrating with what they call making as much noise as possible. Jan 1, 2022, I will attend Holy Mass, a Holy Day described on the Traditional Catholic calendar. 

Next year, let us all pray God will give us all the following year. His patience is incredible; perhaps He will only purify the world as He did in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The greatest lesson I learned is that I don’t need to wear that mask everywhere as in 2020. Grateful too, that most people if not all in my area also figured that out!
