You know you've won, in life, when people pay you to do what you would pay them to let you do

A Hard Journey


I'm trying to get my mind around something today. But I think first I had better apologize.

Like many people, I can be offensive with out wanting to, or even thinking that I am being so, and sometimes I kind of mean to, but only when I'm really mad. Apparently, I don't even need to speak to someone face to face to do it. So if I have offended anyone with my opinion or my unwanted advise, out there in blogland, I am sorry it happened and I am sorry for times, in the future, that it may happen.

I just kind of am who I am. What you see is what you get, some good, some bad. ( I can hardly wait till I'm 80 and people will make excuses for me because of my age and senility : )

That said, I just wanted you all to know that I'm not easily offended. Life is too short, (at my age). I appreciate your comments, especially the uplifting ones; most of your concerns I feel in my own heart. No one has offended me (except maybe the mower guy the other day but I think I'm even getting over that).

I realize we all have bad days and good ones that affect how we view the people around us but I'll always try to give you the benefit of any doubt. I've learned that Life is a hard journey for everyone.

I musta missed something. I'd have described you as a "cheerful in all weather" type.

I do my best not to worry about other folk's character defects as I've got plenty of my own.

Your blog is your blog. You have the right to say what you want, when you want, and how you want and if people don't want to read it, then they don't have to.

I'm a very direct person and can hurt people's feelings without meaning to. I would never hurt someone intentionally, but that said, I do sometimes hurt people. In real life I figure I am who I am and if people don't like me they don't have to be around me.

:) I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and you will continue to be who you are!

The internet sure does make things different. For the record, whatever happened, I'm not offended! Hope I haven't been offensive!
I think you're just fine the way you are, and I enjoy reading here!

Its a shame that we have to worry about offending people. To many are afraid of the truth. Perhaps the reality if offence, is that it is just so, the truth. Its what a person feels, how they feel at the time.
I live in a PC world here, it really annoys the hell out of me, all I ever want to do is speak what I feel, and tell some one a few home truths!

I have never felt offended by any thing here on the blog or in email converstions myself, but as you say,it can and does happen.I don't think I come out on the side of the angels everytime either.We can just hope that if we do our best , people will come to understand our little idiosyncrasies and accept the goodness in the the heart! Personally I think you are a wonderful gal, and I look forward to the opportunity to someday sit and chat face to face!

The Wife said...

Hey, I've said I'm pretty dense so there's no telling what I've said before and didn't realize that it offended until later. It usually takes a lot to hack me off. And I've never been upset with anything you've said. Everyone has an opinion. You're perfect just the way you are.

Hey,,,if you are speaking to me ...you didn't offend me..you upset me. My absolute biggest pet peeve is using religion or the name of God in a holier-than-thou attitude...I'm sorry but there is no other way I can say it. And then to suggest I was having a bad day was absurd...I would like to move beyond this and remain blogging friends...fondly, Sheryl

Kate said...

I don't know what happened, but I know I always appreciate your posts and also your comments. Keep up the good work!

If you offended any one I missed it. I know I get on rants from time to time. I'm new at this blogging so I haven't cut lose. I come from long line of sharp tongue women. Hang in here, I think your normal.

Cheyenne said...

Yup, I'm with Kate on this one. I love reading what you have to write...whether it's a comment on someone else's blog or a post...you make my heart smile. :)

Sheryl,
Friends it is. I think it was me having the bad day, thought maybe you were too. I don't really think that Holier-than-thou describes me or what I was trying to say to you. It's just that I think quite a lot about the Lord and how he encourages and blesses my life. I don't think when we read we can hear the tone of voice the writer uses. My comment was meant to be encouraging. I apologize again if it didn't come across that way in the written word.

CCC said...

Mo, you're a nice guy and I dream of houses just like you make. Thanks to everyone who's made an encouraging comment. We'll get it all worked out. Life's too short to spend one minute of it being miserable.

LindaG said...

This is your blog. If I was ever offended, I'd move on. I mean really. If someone doesn't want to read about cows and dogs and inconsiderate people and a hard way to make a living, there are plenty of other blogs out there to read.

Hope you all have a great week!

Jazlyn Oliver said...

Well you haven't offended us here down under... maybe only because you haven't come to visit and take a real vacation!

Shirley said...

It's your blog and you can rant if you want to. You've never come across as holier-than-thou to me, just as someone who appreciates the blessings the good Lord gives us, and who turns to Him when things are a little tough.

Nicole said...

You don't offend me! Besides it's your blog, if they don't like it they can stick it :)... OK now I'm being mean :)

Jessie McCandless said...

For whatever it's worth, I write my blog for me. I always love reading comments if anyone has anything to say about what I write, but I started it for me and it's always been for me.

I read other people's blogs in the same way. It's their life and it's what they want to write about. If I don't agree with it, I move on (if you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything sort of mentality). Instead I try to concentrate on the things we have in common.

I enjoy your blog, reading about your life, your hard work, your passions and your thoughts. Don't let anyone stifle your creativity!! :)

Hi,,my comment really wasn't for the public...would you please delete it for me? I don't need people leaving me comments on MY blog saying "How dare I" when they don't know the whole story...this is kind of getting out of hand....Thanks,,,Sheryl

CCC said...

Please don't pester Sheryl. Best to put the whole fufurah behind us. I'm happy to let it go and keep a friend.
