Proceed with caution

via Daily Prompt: Prudent

TakecarCaution is much maligned in our go-go boom-boom economy. We disparage it and encourage riskier behaviors.  Those, when they pay off, do so handsomely; the expression of this is in the odds at the betting tables.

Nonetheless, there is a place for the circumspect. “Act in haste, rue in leisure,” my husband’s ex-mother in law would tell him. Not that she invented the proverb. Nor that it was one he needed to heed. My husband is a cautious man, one who checks things twice or thrice. Like all of us, he can be impetuous, but to his credit, he is generally prudent. He also knows that often a risk is the most prudent course of action.
