Dear Reader of The Andrews Family Blog,
I sincerely apologize for the whiplash you experienced this week. One day I'm posted about wanting to rid myself of my judgmental nature and just days later, I wrote a very judgmental post about...goldfish. I just wanted to say that I acknowledge the hypocrisy of my blogging ways and I wanted to apologize. It's so easy to run to this blog as an "outlet" for my opinions. It's so tempting to have a forum where you can write whatever you want. I'm learning that this blog is an area where I need to exercise some more self-control and discernment.
I've contemplated deleting it, making it private and just about Parks because sometimes I worry about things I post. I worry I've offended someone or that I'm being judgmental. So, after some family talks, I've come to the conclusion that I will keep this blog going, but I will let my better half read all posts that are not about Parks before I hit "publish". I know this will help me not post things that just shouldn't be out for the world to see. I'm amazed at what change a day's perspective brings to an event. Today I'm thinking, "Out of all the things going on in the world...I let some goldfish on the floor at Target get me that angry...and then I blogged about it???" It's pathetic really. I feel like the Lord is whispering, "Mallory, just because it happened, doesn't mean you have to blog about it." I'm reminded of Proverbs 29:11 "
So, please don't give up on me just yet. There is change happening here at this blog and I hope that it will make it a more friendly and welcoming place in the blogosphere.
Thanks for reading and I promise the best writings are yet to come!
