We learned a lot of lessons on the playground. Lessons like:

  1. Getting your hands dirty is a good thing

  2. The reward of the slide is worth the effort of the climb

  3. Never slide down a hot slide in shorts - OUCH

  4. Choose wisely when picking your dodgeball teammates. 🙂

  5. Don’t be afraid to jump out of the swing, but don’t hold on too long either.

  6. Wait 30 minutes after you eat to ride the merry-go-round.

  7. Keep playing until the bell rings.

  8. Share.

But not all the lessons we learned are true...

Sticks and Stones may break my bones but WORDS will never hurt me.


Words matter.

They have the power to lift us up or tear us down.

Words can speak life or speak death.

Words CAN hurt but they can also HEAL.

Every day we have a choice. What words will you use?
