Today has been pleasant in the fact that it has been raining. It did mess with my outdoor plans, but I'll live with it, we were beginning to need the rain.
Wet rain is not the only rain that's been falling in August. I guess it could be blamed on the hot weather or whatever excuse is handy. It seems to be raining a lot of penmanship lashings.
I'm reminded of several sayings when I read comments that are less than nice on a persons blog or page. He who lives in a glass house should throw no stone, don't judge a man's shoes until you've walked a mile in them, what goes around comes around, think before you leap, oh I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.
I just what to say this. Hurtful demeaning remarks left do no one any good, especially the person on the receiving end. Spark is a place for support and encouragement. It doesn't have to be dripping with syrup, but it should be good true support. You may not think that person did all they could do, or perhaps they are just looking for justification as to why they went off program, but keep it to yourself if the comment you are about to leave is vicious and nasty. These people need support just as much if not more as the next person. If you have to be nasty and point out all the wrong reasons they did what they did send a private email. It's called don't air you dirty laundry outside, most of the neighbors really don't like to look at it.
That's it. Some who read this will know where this came from, some won't. I just hope whoever reads this understands and thinks next time they are about to leave a not so nice reply.
Hope wherever you are you are having a great day, not too hot, and your program is on track for you.
