My Mom's reaction to my previous post:
Mom: "Wow. What caused that blog post? BTW...You aren't a circus freak. You are my little pet monkey. :D."
Me: Explain my rant. "Is it too rude?"
Mom: "Rude? No. Very raw I'd say. You are entitled. It may put some people off but...oh well."
And then she made a good point...
"This will all level itself out shortly. You will soon learn who your true friends are. BUT....having said that, the outpouring of support has been amazing. You need to draw strength from that. You are loved. And the majority of that support is sincere."
I believe Momma's always know exactly what to say, at exactly the right time.
