I haz a sad...

Turns out I was wrong about a certain member of my family.  Thought she was cool, and such... but apparently she is the least tolerant of all my family.

Nice to know.

Please, if anyone else feels I have insulted or "screwed" them over tell me now.  I've never set out to make my blog offensive or closed-minded, anything but, actually.  I have followers/commenters from so many walks of life and always prided myself on the fact that I was loved and respected by such a variety of people.  In turn, I love and respect those people for accepting me as I am with respect and understanding.

I guess it hurts least when you are "disowned" by the notoriously most hot-blooded, unreasonable person in your family.  Yes, I remember the stupid dramatic fights of holidays past...  Funny how the majority of them involved this one person.  I guess this year is no different, but I am the target because it's easy to be mean to someone online when you can rally the troops in my absence.

Correct me if I am wrong, but that behavior seems FAR from what you are waving in my face as "the truth". I'm not ignorant.  I know your "truths" so don't try to use it as a weapon because you are angry.  If you want drama, seek it elsewhere.  I like the peace I have in my life and will gladly write you out of it as you requested because your behavior is far from what I love and adore about MANY Christians who are integral parts of my life.

Merry Christmas to you too.

Aw Jessi, I'm sorry you are having to deal with that. I can definitely sympathize (and with fairly recent occurrences too!).

Not that it helps much to hear from others when family is involved, but I love you! I think you are one of the most sweet open-minded people I know. I love reading what you have to say, and while I agree with most, what I dis-agree with doesn't matter cause you are just awesome, in case you didn't know.

~hugs~

You are a great person with the best of intentions. I have never once felt that you were ignorant, offensive or close-minded. You are quite the opposite. You take the time to get to know someone before forming an opinion. That is why I enjoy your blog so much... also the fact that it is highly interesting and entertaining!

Trust me, you are a breath of fresh air in the sometimes cold and faceless blog world!

First off- it's your blog, you have the right to express your opinions here! I never understood why people got all hot bothered by someone else's opinions- you aren't name calling, or saying 'this is the only way to be'- at least I never got that impression.
Family is tough- they think they have the right to tell you how to live sometimes- hell... I guess non-family does that too. The holidays seem to bring out either the very best or the very worst- sorry you got the latter!

Stick with your peaceful life- we have the same midset now too & it is so much better!

I'm sorry, Jessi! I think you are an awesome person, and I don't have to actually meet you to know that. ♥

ah, bigotry at its finest. ::eyeroll::

i agree: it's your blog, fie on what the naysayers think. so many of us are delighted and inspired by what you write here. who cares if you follow a different path? you and your family have found peace and joy and it's a sad, sad person who would want to take that from someone else.

rock on, mamacita.
