Words are pretty powerful.
They can change an entire feeling about someone.
Because of them, one minute you can dislike someone and within a few minutes, feel that you understand them and can't remember why you didn't like them in the first place.
Or you can think the world of someone and all of a sudden you realize that you don't like them at all.
Words can be kind or hurtful,
light up someone's day or bring them down.
Sometimes, they're meant the way they're written or spoken and other times we misunderstand what the person is trying to say and we jump to conclusions.
I think we've all had that happen many times in our lives.
I know I have.
Saturday, I wrote a post with a P.S. about the fact that commenting back to everyone on my posts was taking a lot of hours out of my day
I wrote it quickly, and because I was tired, I didn't word it correctly.
I remedied it by rewriting it as soon as I realized what it sounded like, but I fear that I might have been too late and caused hurt feelings, which was not my intention at all.
Now, looking back I realize that I should have waited and done a post on it instead of just a quick blurb.
What I was really trying to say is that, I'm really glad to be back blogging and I'm really enjoying it (truly!), but I had forgotten how time consuming all of this was.
So, I'm going to have to cut back on something and that just happens to be commenting back to every single person.
I'll be commenting back to those that don't have blogs and answering questions from everyone, as I get time, but for those of you that do have blogs, I'll be visiting you instead.
If I could somehow get back to each and everyone one of you on my posts, that read this little blog of mine, I would, but I've found it impossible without compromising my life, house and family.
This is supposed to be fun and not a chore, right?
Does that mean that I don't want to hear from you?
I love hearing from all of you.
Not because it boosts my ego, but because it truly warms my heart to know that you care enough to take time out of your day to let me know what you think.
Because of blogging I have friends that span almost a decade and I'm thrilled every single time I make a new one.
To me, blogging is all about friendship and camaraderie.
I don't care if you have blog or not. I'm not part of some stuck up society where I think that people that don't blog should be left out, I'm actually flattered and amazed that anyone reads my words.
So, for those of you, that are still here...
I'm so sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings. It honestly was not my intention.
I can't promise that I'll never do it again, because accidents happen, but I can promise you that I'll try my very best not to.
