For fear of upsetting more people and for fear that I just typed without really thinking. I took this post away. I don’t want to offend, don’t want to hurt and don’t want people who don’t know me to think that I’m a one-world one-people kind of thinker. I never meant it to sound as if I was separating myself from others or making it sound as if I am better than others. The Lord knows, I’m a mess.
There are many times when my words are ahead of my thoughts and in some ways I think this was it. I just don’t think I was able to really say what I meant, so I’m not going to put it out there. This is one reason why I’m taking a blogging break. Not because I got bad comments, but because I just need to force myself to step away and really spend some more time thinking and less time reacting.
I truly never intended my blog give away to turn into a political conversation and really didn’t even realize how much frustration there was out there over China hosting the Olympics or I never would have put that out there. I suppose that is just my ignorance showing. I just wanted to celebrate the success of this blog and give something away.
My sweet husband told me that all I really needed to say was the paragraph below…and so that is why I left it. He is so much wiser than me and such a great balance to my crazy, over reactiveness.
And in all honesty, it’s the Olympics. It’s amazing, it’s fun and it’s something that you have the choice to watch or not. It’s also a time when many countries come together (even those fighting each other) and put their differences aside for the love of the game and in celebration of the amazing talents that they have been given.
Go USA! (although I must admit I’ve had quite enough of Michael Phelps…even my 4 year old, who knows NOTHING about swimming, is talking all about him!)
