The Thanksgiving Challenge Post 16: What makes me happy and thankful today
What makes me happy and thankful today? Most (99%) of my readers make me happy. They read what I have to say and add to my memories with memories of their own. You are always fun and cheerful or if you're not well you tell me and ask for prayer. Rarely are you critical of what I have to say. But since they are my memories, I don't know why anyone would feel the need to criticize them anyway. I have one reader who bothers me. I have yet to read a comment from him that was not hateful and frankly disturbing. One post the other day had a comment on it that was so graphically violent that I worried about my ten year old Granddaughter reading it. I deleted it as soon as I found it and hoped that would be the end of it. Today's comment on Post 15, while not violent, was equally hateful. Again, I removed it from my blog. I am not going to be forced into changing my way of posting. I shouldn't have to. So, today I am thankful for the delete button. It will be used as often as I need to take advantage of its powers. If it says "comment removed by a blog administrator" then you know that I am being so very very thankful at the express moment my finger hits the delete key!
