    yesterday...we had to put my mom in a nursing home a few months ago and everyday she asks me what happened to certain items from her house...for instance, she'll ask who has my coffee pot or what did you do with my red sweater...i tell her most of her things were donated to katrina relief, which some of it was...but most of the stuff was thrown away...it hurts when she asks where her stuff is and i know it was thrown away but i tell her something else...

    peace...

    I lied to my co-worker about why I was late coming back from lunch. I told her there was construction, which there was, but I was still wandering around Target looking at housewares when I should have been back at the office.

    I use little white lies like that all the time (mostly when I am late) but try very hard not to lie in any significant way. It always bites you in the ass.

    He asked me if I like him. I said 'no' and laughed. The truth was (is) 'yes so much that it hurts' but I still don't think I could tell the truth if he asked again.

    Yesterday I told someone I wasn't hurt by something that was said when I really was. Just didn't feel like dealing with it.

    White lies are okay if they spare someone hurt. Not on big issues though.

    I don't remember the last time I lied... so I'm very happy :) Thanks for helping me realise it.

    I guess white lies are ok, but it's better to say litte and only the truth. Hard though.

    I try not to lie about things that matter. Little white lies that make people feel better or not feel bad are okay.
    I lied to my father almost five years so that he would not know he had terminal cancer, after he had survived 3 previous ones. I am even at peace for that lie because I could not break a dying man's heart.

    I think little white lies are ok if it is to spare someone's feelings.

    I can't remember the last lie that I told, but it was probably just one of those little white ones. :)
