While reading comments to one of my recent posts, a new "country" was heard from! I immediately went to her site to explore. That's where I found these words - put just this way.
When I went to comment, I was going to say "This is the best advice I've ever heard." I stopped short of it, realizing how prone to hyperbole* I am. I didn't take the time to think of what other pieces of advice might be "gooder" than this, but one came to my mind--"Come to Jesus and live" (or its equivalent).
Not talking bad about your husband. To anyone. Ever. is still right up toward the very top of my list of good advice.
What would YOU put "up there"?
Are YOU sometimes prone to hyperbole - or is it just me?
*Hyperbole according to the American Heritage Dictionary: A figure of speech in which exaggeration is used for emphasis or effect, as in I could sleep for a year or This book weighs a ton. (This definition added for Janette!)
OH, MY! Brenda's comment below is an important and
necessary disclaimer. (My marriage is far from perfect,
but good enough that it didn't even enter my head to make an
exception clause! ) Thanks, Brenda. I DO agree.
