I apologize for my delayed response to your comment but I was so very busy living my life yesterday that I did not have the time to devote to you.
Thank you for leaving me such a wonderful comment Tuesday night, it was one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Why? Because you proved my point that nasty people are out there and they love to hide behind that anonymous button!
I would love to be able to write this to you privately but since you took that option away by hiding behind the Anonymous screen I cannot.
Just in case you have forgotten what you wrote I took the liberty of cutting and pasting your comment, it is in light grey making it easy for you to follow.
I am confused, also!!! You write about if you don't like a blog..don't read it; but then you go on and about a blog you don't agree with? Why don't you just not read it? I did not go on and on about a blog I did not agree with. I simply stated that there are many blogs out there that I do not care for because in my opinion their focus is on negativity and viciousness. It's their right to write what they choose and mine to disagree with what they say. Leaving nasty comments or linking to their ugliness on my blog would only add to their joy and make me just as guilty.
You go to a CHARITY EVENT and take PHOTOGRAPHS of people you feel like should have "looked into a mirror before they went out" talk about how their hair looks (not up to your standards) and so forth. I wonder how ALL those poor unsuspecting people would feel if they knew you and your friend were blogging about them. You have a lot of nerve!!! Stop and think about what you continue to do. You are correct I did recently go to a charity event and pictures were taken. These pictures did not reveal faces or the name and location of the event. Does that it make it OK? No! Are those pictures are my blog? No! Did I say I was innocent of being catty? No! Did I say actions speak louder than words? Yes! And that is why my less than kind post was removed within 24-hours.
Do not delete this, either-Read your post again, read the post you wrote about your recent night at the charity event-did you even get for a single minute anything about, (assumed name of charity removed by Shawn), or was it all about the dress and hair and entrance you made?? I work on committees, co-chair and attend many charity events and enjoy doing so! I always leave these events feeling blessed beyond measure to be a part of something so incredible and love to be able to offer what support I can. As for my hair, dress and entrance. My hair looked the same that night as it does every other night, I have good hair, sorry. My dress, like the majority there, was beautiful and I felt wonderful in it. If feeling good about yourself is something you are not accustomed to than I'm sorry for you. As far as my entrance is concerned I walked in on the arm of my handsome husband with my beautiful friend and her husband at my side. I feel no need to apologize if our entrance made an impact on others, especially you! Your comment was made 8 days after the pictures were posted and I must remind you that it was up for less than 24-hours. Clearly my appearance impacted you...jealous much?
Read the two post again and wonder why people would be so inclined to write a blog about your kind-PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH!! "Your kind"? I'm curious as to what that is. If it's someone who takes pride in their personal appearance, loves her family and friends, finds joy in helping other, has the ability to recognize when they have done something that was in poor taste and then does what is necessary to make it right, basically practices what they preach, then I'm perfectly fine with that label! I am officially "That-Kind". I may even make an award and pass it out to others of "My-Kind".
Listen to all your bible studies!! It's very interesting that you would say that since I do not recall mentioning attending a Bible study since September. Would it be a fair assumption if I considered you a blog sleuth? Someone who reads blog after blog waiting in anticipation for an opportunity to present itself for you to strike and dish out a little venom through an anonymous comments. For the record, I do listen to my Bible studies and I have learned a lot. I have learned that we will all sin and make mistakes. We will all act in a way that is not pleasing to others, especially God, because we are all sinners. I have learned to ask for forgiveness when I have done something wrong, to learn from it and move on. I have learned that being a Christian who attends Bible studies will not make me perfect. I have learned that like you I am only human. I am a human with a good sense of style and a good sense of humor. A human who will never not see the humor in a pair of sparkly-star boots worn with a formal dress and not a Halloween costume. A human who still finds hair from 1973 worn in 2009 funny. A human that loves to look good and one that feels no need to apologize to you or anyone else for any of it!
By request here are a few pictures from the evening.
Me and my handsome hubby!
Me and my beautiful friend, who by the way did not post any pictures on her blog!
Showing that it's always OK to have a sense of humor!
Now head on over to Shortmamas to read more Dear Someone's!
Happy Thursday Y'all!
