So I Will Be Quiet

As I look back at my childhood, the thing I remember most about my house was my father speaking in a quiet tone and my mother yelling (a lot). When my mother yelled I always thought my father withdrew...but with my experiences from the last week...I no longer think so. I thinks he got the concept that you don't have to yell from the mountaintops. If you are right...that can be enough...even if the person in the wrong doesn't think so. This has been so freeing for me. I don't have to stoop to attack mode. I can just be quietly right. Thanks Dad!!!!!!!
