Second thoughts

In case you are confused I have removed the blog post I wrote yesterday because it upset a reader. The post was written to honor my deceased daughter-in-law who was above all else a loving mother.

I find it interesting how people can completely twist things others say based on their experiences and what they have been taught by others. Many times they don't take the time to get all of the facts before reacting.

Writing a blog about my life and the challenges I have been given is sometimes a risky business. I know this is where I am supposed to be so I am going to keep writing and no one has the right to tell me what to write, what to say or what to do.

I have a bit of positive advice for anyone who does not like the contents of my blog- don't read it! When you have walked in my shoes and met all the challenges that I have survived in my 74 years of living then maybe you will have earned the right to criticize.  In the meantime,  have a wonderful life people.

Happy Mother's Day to all my readers who said yes to a very difficult job!


  1. Perfectly said Barbara!


  2. Thanks Maria, if the shoe fits, well you know the rest! xoxo

  3. I'm sorry you felt you had to delete that post, Barbara, especially when you go on to say in this one that (and I'll quote you here) "no one has the right to tell me what to write, what to say or what to do." Follow your own inner voice and it will never steer you wrong.

    I personally thought that particular post was well-written and perfectly said by a caring, insightful woman who has many years of love and experience in her. We can all benefit from your wisdom; some of us just might need it a little more than others :)

    Just my two cents...

  4. Thanks Lois. I thought of that quote also as I deleted the post, but because it is not my desire to hurt anyone I thought it best.
