Today’s been a long day.
First of all, thank you thank you thank you so much for the many, many, many messages of support that Lolly received over the course of today. She was incredibly touched by so many of the amazing words you all shared. Thank you for helping her feel better.
Unfortunately, mixed in that bag was another comment that was not very nice at all. I was in Portland, so I didn’t get home until about an hour ago, and when I did Lolly came downstairs and said she’d been crying for hours. She’s not an especially sensitive person like the last couple of days might make her sound–it’s just that we were apart from each other, and online vulnerability is so hard. It’s hard when someone you know passes harsh judgment. We have moved the conversation with that person over to private channels, and everything will be okay. But overall, Lolly and I have ended this weekend apart feeling very raw. And also very blessed. And also so, so, so incredibly supported by so many amazing people, who said things that we will cherish forever.
Thank you for that.
Along those lines, I am posting tonight about someone else who needs support. I believe that this blog has become a community, and I feel that when a member of our community is down on her luck, we should rally around and support her.
Thanks Weeders. You are the greatest people. I mean it.
