This is Good Friday
I did something a few minutes ago - partly as a knee jerk reaction to something hurtful and partly because I am tired of the whole Facebook mentality. You see, I made a statement that went up on the feed. I noted that everyone today is talking about Earth Day, including Google making a graphic for the day. But has anyone remembered that it's also Good Friday? What was I thinking? In under 5 seconds I was under attack. Someone said that Good Friday was only for Catholics and another agreed and so it went from there. I didn't fight. I'm too tired to fight. (Others were joining in by then) So I deactivated my Facebook account. I probably worded my post wrong - I'm no orator. What was I thinking even alluding to Christian faith on the mighty Facebook? Ack. Oh well. I'll get over it with no hard feelings to the people involved, but I think a good long break from that venue is needed. And I'll privately pray for those that didn't know that today is an important Christian observance.
I find there is a notable difference in the blogosphere. We post about our projects, but we also share bits of our lives with each other and I have never witnessed anything disrespectful. I'm babbling a little here. I feel like I should have stood my ground but I was so upset and closed my account instead. I'm ashamed of myself for not pulling it together. Instead I saw what could be a 30 post melee and ran.
Well, what's done is done. I'm going to try to reclaim my evening and follow through with the good rest tonight plan. I have some crafting ideas to try tomorrow. Life goes on.
I hope you are all enjoying this holiday weekend and have a wonderful Easter.
