I received a response to my Email last night ..
Sorry for my inappropriate comments. I guess I had a "bad hair day" down here and I was just looking for an easy out to release my aggressions. It know it is no excuse but, I hope you will accept my appology
Sincerely - Joanne B
This morning, I responded ..
Good Morning Joanne,
Of course I forgive the comments, we've all said or written things we regret - or haven't meant for some to see. I try very hard not to hold grudges, or hold on to things from the past - I think they weigh me down.
I hope you're enjoying your time down South, it's warming up a bit here --- buuuut we're expecting some sort of storm tomorrow. Hopefully Sera will be home safe and warm before it hits.
I have a three year old child (nearly four now) that I am responsible for. I have a three year old child, who looks to me as a role model. To have responded the way I *really* wanted to? Wouldn't have been productive, it wouldn't have been kind, and it wouldn't have been anything I want my child to learn. I like to think my response was very adult. Even if this woman is at least twice the age I am, I believe I was the adult in this situation. Maybe not to start, but ... I finished strong.
