In some families, “please” is described as the magic word.  In our house, however, it was “sorry.”      Margaret Laurence

(As is the way it should be!  The word “please” is a very polite word, and we should strive to use it, more often than not.  But, there’s a sense of neediness with the word.  Almost a greediness.  But, the word “sorry”, and more specifically the phrase “I’m sorry” conveys  both compassion and empathy.  The word(s), when said with sincerity, express more than ownership for a mistake, or offense.  They express a form of understanding the pain you have caused, and a kind of seeking of forgiveness.  Both, the giving and receiving of forgiveness, are key elements of our humanity.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(A little wisdom from North of the Border!  Too many people are too stingy with the words:  I’m sorry.  It’s too bad, because those words can open up a whole new world.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
