Just a Thought

I am a little bit upset right now...

I was visiting my friend Cat over at Perpertual Perfection and saw some pretty hateful anonymous comments from her post yesterday.

Yesterday Cat posted about the insanity that shopping for your wedding dress while picking up tires and toilet paper would be. Well, you can do just that now because Costco is selling wedding dresses.

Cat is cute, sarcastic, sweet and generous.

However, some people did not read what she was saying and instead they attacked her, insinuated that she was making fun of poor people and so forth.

Someone actually quoted scripture to her implying that she does not have a Christian heart.

And that is where I get angry and upset people.

Why do we start blogs?

I started mine as an outlet/journal for my mental sanity.
I wanted to share things I love/dislike.
I wanted to share my opinions and pretty pictures.
I wanted to keep my family and friends "in the loop" on the general events of my day to day life.

Some bloggers have strong opinions, some don't.
Some bloggers use lots of profanity and sexual innuendos, some don't.
Some bloggers are sarcastic, some aren't.

If a blog "offends" me, guess what...I don't read it.
I sure as heck do not leave anonymous comments intended to make the person feel bad about themselves or shameful.

But  if you do feel compelled to leave something hateful then please have the nerve to leave your name.

I applaud Cat for her honesty and opinions.
I applaud her for her responses to these comments and her ability to remain calm and classy.

That being said, I want to thank all you bloggers that go out on a limb daily and share your thoughts and lives with me. I promise I will never hurt your feelings intentionally and if I ever "offend" you, please email me directly and I will send you a handwritten letter of apology and large Hershey Kiss.

Now, if you feel so inclined, go show Cat some love.

I can't believe what I am reading! I couldn't agree with you more... If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all!!
