I just wanted to send a thank you out to all of you, my wonderful blogger friends, this weekend. Your encouraging words, prayers and support mean so very much to me, I don't think I could ever explain just how much. As a girl who often feels as if she has very little friends and family to turn to, you are there, and so, so very special and precious to my heart. Thank you.
I sent my mother a very long, heart-felt explanation of exactly why I felt the way I did after I calmed down last night. Her response of 'whatever, I have your brother' made it very easy for me to make the decision to once again completely remove her from my life, online or elsewhere. I don't feel as if it's in anger, or even hurt. I feel 100% at peace with my decision, especially since I finally got to get all of the things off of my chest and heart that I've wanted to say to her and ask her for so long. I really feel like I can move on in forgiveness and God's grace at this point.
