By the way...

I'm blogging again...I assume that you figured that out already, but here's the official announcement anyway. It's good to be back.

My stupid mouth..

Have you ever had that moment where you did or said something entirely stupid? I know I'm not the only one - although I'm beginning to think I have more than my share of those moments. I'm standing there and as the thing is coming out of my mouth I'm wishing I could take it back. Not because it was a bad thing - but because the timing was all wrong. It was perceived in entirely the wrong way - not at all how I meant it. I forgot to filter. I wasn't paying enough attention to the situation and I hurt someone's feelings - or rather made someone mad. It was not my intention and I am tortured over it. I couldn't wait even an hour to call that person and apologize from the bottom of my heart. I'm still a little tortured over it. The person said it was no big deal and that they are not mad - but my heart still hurts b/c my stupid mouth hurt someone.

Do you ever have those moments? I hope you don't - or at least not as often as I do. I've been singing the John Mayer song, "My Stupid Mouth" in my head ever since.

Next time I'll be more careful of the timing and context before I let loose with my tongue.
