Don’t ya love getting a “well, dah” when you say something? Today it happened in the car. I was telling Miss 5 year old that when we got back she had to take a nap especially since she wanted to go to tumbling class. She decided she did not want to go. I informed her that she was still taking a nap just a longer one if she was not going to class. The conversation went on when suddenly I got the “dah”. Grammie does not deal well with the “dah” and I told her so. I told her she was being very disrespectful. From there the conversation went to what does that mean, why is it wrong and many other questions. All the explanations finally ended with a very proper and polite apology.
I got to thinking about “dah” and how many times we use it or hear it. We have “dah” moments (used to be called senior moments or slip our mind moments) now they are “dah”. We use it sarcastically when someone says something that we already knew, being as rude as Miss 5 yr. old was to me.
I began to wonder about how many “dah moments” I have allowed in my life over the years. How many times has the right thing been there in front of me and I did something else or nothing and then thought of it later. OR worse yet, did not think of it later and never learned from it?
Today I was reminded again of remembering to watch my mouth, my mind and my actions. Not only are there other ones watching, but God is watching. Wonder how many times He has said “dah” about me?
