Shut up and listen!

A couple of weeks ago, during my morning conferrence, I said:

"What if ... my wife's nagging is YOU trying to tell me something? What if ... when I tune her out, I'm missing something I need to know today. Y'know, Lord (Yep, that's what I said, Lord .. YOU know.) Maybe I KNOW what she's gonna say cuz I hear it every day. Maybe I'm missing the one YOU slip in when I tune her out."

I know how fleeting a thought can be. That's why I love the "quickie" AA slogans and acronyms. So I made one up.

S.L.O.W. - Stop. Listen. Obey Willingly.

That led me to make up another one.

S.L.O.P. - Stop Listenning Out of Pride.

I tried SLOW the next time ... when I immediately realized what I was doing.

Dam if it didn't work! I woulda missed the one little thing in the middle of her schpeel. I need it THAT DAY. :shock:

I had to use SLOP a coupla times, too. I ain't no saint ..YET. :oops:


Love y'all,
