Integrity and Words

Irony is one those words that come to mind when I think about life experiences and relationships.  In the heat moment we will say our significant other lied or betrayed us. But, if we were really in the moment and paying attention to the pattern the writing was on the wall.  Sometimes even a lie is the truth about an individual, so as the saying goes “Honesty is the best policy”, you just have to be aware.  Your words, sentences and declarations rather lie or truths are a reflection of you. It does not take a long time for and individual to reveal their true self if you are observant. Since October 1992, I have always told my wife who at the time I was dating, the time I would call her. At the time she would allow me to use her car, and I would bring it back to her with a full tank of gas and clean. Today, I will call my wife or send her a text to let her know my lunch schedule, running errands after work or leaving a meeting or event.  This is simple courtesy and concern and is reciprocal. I may not be the richest man on this earth, but I know the value of my words and the integrity that follows my name. If you do not have that in your relationship from the beginning, you have nothing. -Glenn D. Andrews-
