To the Kinder, Gentler Bloggers

Back in my high school years I was in the band. Every year the band leaders (students – not the faculty) would hand out awards to sum up the year. My senior year was very memorable to me, I was presented “The Kinder, Gentler Babe” award. It made my day, not just for the use of the word “babe” – but mostly for the first part, I was so glad I was leaving my high school friends with that impression.

I guess I have always tried to be a nice person and plan on doing so for the rest of my life. It keeps me happy.

So, the other day I came across a certain blog (to remain nameless) that seems to have a great number of readers. My heart sank a little because the nature of the blog was fairly unkind. It made me sad to see that people were so eager to jump on a bandwagon that took to putting others down for the way they dress or the fact that they don’t get manicures. Ugh! It’s just wrong on so many levels.

I was considering redoing one of my favorite bumper stickers of all time.

But it seemed to be a little negative.

So, I am going to go with the guys from my band class and do this:

That’s better!

Thank you to all you nice people out there, your kind and happy posts and comments are very much appreciated by sweet little ole me!

Oh, and hope everyone is feeling much, much better. I hate colds and feel so bad for the little ones when they go through it.

Huh...I don't remember that at all. I must not have got one. If I did, I've long since forgotten/blocked/suppressed it. I'm sure my 'award' would not have been in the same vein as yours. :-) I do think that "kinder,gentler babe" statement sums you up perfectly -- then and now. Love yer guts!
