Hi all, some of my readers have been e-mailing me concerning malicious comments about me on another blog. Just wanted to say I appreciate your concern and let you know that yes, I am aware of the hateful remarks, lies and distortions this individual and her followers have been slinging at me over the past months. Now normally I don't waste my time worrying about it or dignifying any of their increasingly crude remarks with a response. But the most recent one has crossed the line by mentioning my little girl. In fact, when I told my husband about it, my little girl overheard and asked in a hurt and angry tone, "Who said bad things about me?" Can you imagine? A three-year-old girl asking why people are saying nasty things about her on the internet...those people must be very proud of themselves indeed. I'm sure any mother or just any decent human being can share my disgust.
Responding in kind however, would just be childish and stooping to their level. People can believe what they want, but I think a person's true character will inevitably show through in what they write and how they conduct themselves. And I know that you, my dear readers, are here to read about and discuss beauty, shopping and other pleasant subjects, so I'll happily leave the bullying, mean-spirited attacks and petty jealousies to those who specialize in them.
Thanks everyone for all your messages and calls of support!
