I'll admit it!
Someone shoots me a dirty look and my vision immediately starts to blur as my eyes fill with tears and my bottom lip starts to quiver.
I guess I take after my mom on that too.
But seriously you guys, I'm wiping my tears away! All your comments and emails were such a blessing for me to read.
Thank you all for taking the time to show me some love.
I guess what really got me down was the personal attacks.
I don't like even giving people like that the privilege of viewing my blog just so they can be snoopy and look for the wrong in me and my family.
As for the other snots who degrade me, I find it interesting that they ridicule my blog and call me ignorant but still read it almost daily! Hypocrisy at it’s finest don’t you think? I'll pray for them. I will! Something in their life is causing them to be mean.
(and as Faith would say, "you will get a beautiful crown in heaven.")
I'm often the topic on threads at the UK Student Room. I'm a Christian Creationist Homeschooler. I guess that entertains them? *most of what you will find on their threads are made up, I did not say.
Being that I homeschool, makes people seem to think they can grade my blog posts?
I'm learning that when you are blogging publicly, about opinions or beliefs, negative responses will happen!
Some are just criticisms,others are really mean and nasty and even personal. You need to have thick skin to survive in blogland, so I'm told.
So, what's a wimp to do?
I've really been praying about blogging and searching my own heart as to why I'm doing it. I was going to do a goodbye post (it was already scheduled) but after reading through some emails and comments I changed my mind. (your begging worked..haha)
God has showed me through many emails of people and their stories! One lady emailed me(with permission to share) who is an atheist but now is looking into Creation because my blog was private she found me and is now reading the Bible for the first time and found Ken Ham's ministry!( through a link I had up. Another said they prayed for the first time in their life after reading my blog. I had no idea! And many others...I'm not bragging in anyway but I guess God can use the worst spellers after all HA!
I may get mean emails but there is plenty of you who love me despite my flaws. And My husband is right, the community and group of girls here are too much to give up. I love you guys....(tears... bottom lip quiver)HA!
So, if you are a blogger know that what you put out there people do read. They just might not always comment. You never know who your blog may touch.
We all know Mckmama and I love her blog. I've learned a lot from her. Keep going even when other's try to tear you down. Now she has some thick skin. She has a baby with a heart condition and people formed blogs against her and dug up all the dirt they could find on her and posted it all over the Internet.
It's like a group of people got together and said, "Lets kick her hard while she's already down."
Just today after reading another favorite blog. Brittany at 4littlemenandgirlytwins.
Talk about kicking and beating up someone who is already hurting...
She got hundreds of mean nasty comments.
Here's a few:
a "fairytale" about a Boy and Girl is just childish and frankly, a bizarre choice.
The economy has been tanking for the past few years. You knew this, yet you still chose to buy organic, add more children to your already large family, buy expensive vitamins, etc. All of those expensive clothes, toys, baby carriers that you either bought or had given to you can be SOLD at a garage sale. And don't you all have a BMW station wagon? I'm sure it was a used car, but I'm also sure that it uses something other than regular gas...another unnecessary expense. Ford makes station wagons.McDonald's is hiring.
oh and ps - lovely picture for the button - could have you chosen one that screams "poor poor us" a little more loudly? I'm not sure its clear enough...
These people don't know her! Yet they are quick to judge.
I loved this story....
A family had to go on food stamps for eight months. Once in the grocery line, a fellow shopper said to her, "You have a Coach purse and you are on food stamps?" She cried right there and then. Little did that person know that her purse had been a gift and she didn't even know what Coach was.
We need to stop judging and lift each other up(like you all did to me)
and as my friend Marie puts at the bottom of all her sweet emails:
Be kinder than necessary - everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
Thank you again for all your support and love. To all who disagree with me or who are very different in beliefs... Thank you for your nice comments and for sticking around despite our differences. I wish I could respond to each of you. And yes, you can call me Bridge:)
