Love cookies, but is it enough? - Page 5

post #61 of 70
HI I have been on this site for quite a while now to see some nasty people say nasty things for no reason. If these people have to hide behind a PM and say nasty things they are not worth worrying about. Everyone has an opinion and has a right to say what they think(sometimes they should keep quiet).

I always ignore the nasty people and nasty comments from them because there is so much to learn on this site. I would not have gotten very far without the help of this site. The majority of the people on this site are kind, helpful people and we should be thankful for this and not let some nasty people put us down. Sometimes it is just jealousy that create the nasty in people and you sure do have quite a lot of talent with your cookies. I am sure I can still learn lots from talented people like you.

You and your family are in my thoughts through this hard time in life! Just remember to take it one day and it is what it is!

Somehow, the internet gives people license to forget all of their manners. It also allows people with no manners at all to interact with people who normally would have avoided them like the plague! Sometimes all of us hit the submit button a little too quickly.

I've learned to be quick with an apology if someone is truly offended, even if I had no intention to offend and still don't think I was offensive. I used to unintentionally escalate the situation by continuing to make my case, forgetting that the other party doesn't know me (or trust my motivations) and that there are thousands of others who can help to escalate.

Just remember that for every difficult, unpleasant or downright mean person, there are hundreds of others here who just aren't that way!

I'm sorry you are going through such a hard time. You have always been such a sweet and helpful person here. Here's a cyber hug. Praying for you today.

Gemini, I'm so sorry about your dad, but I was happy to hear that he is feeing good about trying the new treatment. I'm not an expert in this, but I hear that when a person with cancer is pessimistic, he won't last as long as the doctor say he would, but the optimistic patient's body tend to react very positively with the treatment, and in that case, they live much longer than expected. Hope your dad is the optimistic type.
I've lost my dad to a heart attack in May 2000, it was a shock to me, because it wasn't expected at all. I'm living abroad with my husband, and one night mom called to tell us that he was gone. I was in denial for several years, but I'm fine with it now. The only thing I regretted was not spending enough time with him before I got married and left.

I'm so glad you're not leaving CC, I LOVE your work, your cookies are so amazing. thumbs_up.gif


lots of hugs,
Joumana

Thanks to each and every one of you! I'm at a loss to express how much all your kind words mean to me.

Gemini - please know that there are many of us CC'ers that are lifting you and your family up in our thoughts and prayers. It is times like these that make us realize how petty and insignificant in comparison some of our everyday "trials" really are.

I'm sure that the majority of posters on this site have dealt with serious illness in their family at one time or another, and appreciated the concern of others during that time. Hopefully, whomever sent you a less-than-polite PM in the past will recognize that this is a difficult time for you and offer a kind word. It really does help to get those cyber-hugs, so I am sending one your way.
