Get over it!

Some people, I tell ya! I sent an email to family and friends yesterday detailing the trials we are currently going through as a family. One member emailed back and said she was "insulted" that she was notified through email instead of a phone call. Can you believe it?! With all that is going on right now, we don't have time to call everyone. We called some members (a total of 4 between both of our families), but because I am sick in the evenings, it's difficult for TJ to talk on the phone, watch 3 kids, and help around the house. Obviously this person has never experienced having 3 kids and a sick spouse. Plus the stress that we are under is indescribable. On top of all of this, TJ and I are both taking classes, and he had a conference call Thursday night for almost 2 hours! I am so upset that this person not only emailed me to tell me she was insulted, but she has called at least 2 other people to share her "misfortune". Give me a break! I don't want pity, I want prayers and I want a little empathy. I want her to try to imagine what my life is like for a brief second, and then decide if I purposely insulted her. Email is the fastest way to disseminate information; it wasn't to avoid calling her.

By the way, we did try to call her on 2 different occasions and never got through, not even a voicemail or answering machine. I bet she didn't share that with those she called to complain about me to!

Don't worry too much about it. You have enough on your plate without adding her drama.

Hope all things went well today.. I'll be thinking of you!
