An idiom a day…

The English language has so many words that sound the same but have very different meanings such as bear and bare, hair and hare. Of course, as I am writing this I can’t think of any others, but there are many sayings (idioms) that are confusing too. So on to the rest of the story.
Did you know that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush? Is that the same as a penny saved is a penny earned? If so I better work my tail off. How do you do that? Maybe by stepping up to the plate. I would really rather be safe than sorry because I don’t want to be up a creek without a paddle.
As we know don’t let one bad apple spoil the bunch or you won’t have an apple a day to keep the doctor away. Each day takes on a life of its own so don’t count your chickens before they hatch because they might be like finding a needle in a haystack.
The moral of the story, what goes up must come down and a watched pot never boils but if you have a grateful heart and love one another the “Son” will always shine on you.
