Medela (me-de’-la): When you can’t deny or defend friends’ faults and seek to heal them with good words.
You’ve got to stop saying things like that–you must, even after all these years, try to find a way to hold your tongue. Your enthusiasm is what we need. What we don’t need are the misdirected outbursts. They don’t help. Go home for awhile, get some rest, spend some quality time with your family, and think it over. We need you, and you’ve always been there when we’ve needed you. We’ll see you in Florida in a little while. Keep the faith. Give my best to your wonderful wife and kids. Get some R&R.
Post you own medela on the “Comments” page!
