Walking the Talk: 3-Day Quote Challenge #2

“Love is shown more in deeds than in words.”    ~Ignatius of Loyola~

I’ve thought on Walking the Talk for a long while now.  It became especially poignant when the girls started asking those interesting questions that children are prone to do.  We were challenged to think about how we felt on many issues, then had to find ways to explain it to them, and finally, we had to determine how we would Walk the Talk as an example to them.

It certainly has been n interesting journey, one which is far from over. Although our children no longer look to us quite as much as they used to, walking the talk has been a discipline that occupies much of our focus.  It is a daily struggle, and a daily renewal to show Love to our family, friends, and those around us, not only by expressing it with words but also with our actions.

  1. From reading the posts in which you mention your family, I’ve always thought you walk the talk; and now I know that you deliberately and carefully do just that. I think your children are fortunate in the parents they have. Also, the statue in the photograph is fascinating.


    1. Thank you for the affirmation, Janet! We all do try our best to live wholistic & consistent lives; we don’t always succeed, but it has been life-preserving to have a home base to return to!

      Isn’t the sculpture just fun? Bangkok is full of fun art scattered around the city!
