profound statement

I got an email this weekend from my friend and neighbor Ashley. I think she's pretty eloquent. I think I am not. She said this:

"Please let me know what language you speak in these times. I'll learn it."

I thought that was so profound.  After thinking it over, we all speak different languages at different times in life. I speak one language in happy times. I speak another in hard times. I speak another with family and another with friends. I speak one with kids and one with adults. It's hard to be multi-lingual. And it's hard to translate others languages in different seasons of life. What a good question to ask.

For the record, I speak the language of humor and ice cream and movies in times like these.

What language do you speak and when?
