Oh My Word

One of the things I love about watching the fixer upper remodeling shows is the way everyone reacts with such sweet responses, "Oh, sweet Lord," or "My goodness," and "Oh, My word." When I was younger I ran into a woman from Texas who would always say with her southern sing-songie-twang, "You're so sweeeeet!" Those endearing words made me smile even in their simplicity because of the tenderness offered behind the words supported by a twinkle in the eye and a smile.

Have you heard of colloquialisms? They are sayings or expressions that people say to make a point. My friend Skip says we should be cautious of people who have unscrupulous intentions and warned about one person in particular, “He’s a liar and a cheat and a bad judge of good whiskey.” His words got me thinking about words in general and how we've become a nation hell-bent on repeating hurtful words.
