Silence As A Response
Why is it that silence is seen as a bad or wrong response to something? I sometimes hear a person say, "I could not think of anything to say." Maybe not thinking of something to say is a grace. You were not supposed to say anything. Your presence, maybe a touch, a caring look was enough. Someone told me that if your words cannot improve on the silence, then don't say anything. I try to keep my blogs somewhat short...not too many words. Friends of my sister Maureen wish that I would say zero words and go away to a monastery to repent. Well, I am at a monastery, repenting, but we have internet!
