I'm out for now...........

 After opening up about the trouble Little Buddy is having in school I received a very snarky comment.  My post is down and I won't be posting for a while.  It is not worth the stress when I am already having a hard time.  Best wishes to you all.

I am so sorry that someone left you a snarky comment. People can be so cruel behind a computer screen! You are such a good mom and are doing the best you can. Please remember that and try not to let ignorant people's comments bother you. It's them, not you. Love and hugs to you, dear Mere. xoxo

Oh Meredith, I'm so sorry to learn that someone has been so unkind to you! I can't imagine the paint this has caused you but please know that you have an amazing community that follows your blog and we are all holding you in our hearts tonight. It's been a year! But we're here.

I'm so sorry. Hugs for now. I will pray it won't be dark days for long.

So sorry someone felt the need to be unsupportive to you here, Meredith. Not their job or their business. Here whenever you need to vent or indeed to just let us know how you're doing. Much love. xxx

We have been missing your kind and compassionate posts. Snarky comments are sadly all too common these days. Stay well, sending a hug from NYC

I'm sorry to hear this Meredith, I didn't see the post as I'm not around as much as I was. Thinking of you and sending hugs I hope that things improve for Little Buddy very soon. xxx

I‘m so sorry no more hearing from you, little Buddy and the boys!

I do not have a blog, but I know from reading others that some comments left are less than kind. I know over here in Canada a lot of the media posts on news and events are set up not to allow comments because the comments became cruel and argumentative. I do wish you well, and am sorry you got some negative commentary. Sending good wishes, to you and your family. I hope you return to blogging at some point/. Jean

I am so sorry to hear this. People can be so mean. I throw any stupid comments I get right in the trash. I don't share my thoughts to have anyone judge me just as I would never judge others.
Take care. I'll be thinking of you.

So sorry that you will not be posting for a while. It's so easy to make negative comments when you are not 'face-to-face' with the person you are addressing, and this must be so distressing and hurtful.
I always find your blog inspiring, honest and uplifting and look forward to reading it.
Wishing you well and hope that you will recover from the hurt and stress caused.
Thank you for the pleasure you have given me.

You hang in there. Easy to say, I know. Having been a special educator (behavior disordered) I have heard so many hurtful and ignorant comments directed at parents/care givers too numerous too count. I have heard comments from those who should know better.
I have read you over the years and I am so impressed with you as a person, a professional and a Mother.

You Take Care,

Dear Meredith, I am regular reader of your blog for a very long period, but this is the first time I am commenting anything. Just to wish you to stay strong, brave and dedicated to your son as much as you are all this time. God never closes door before opens some window. It takes some time to realize it and to find it. I think of you and pray that things become better very soon. Take care... Sabina, Bosnia-Herzegovina

Meredith, I'm sorry about this development and sorry I didn't get to read your post. Take as much time as you need to take care of yourself. XO

Elizabeth said...

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this. I enjoy your posts about Little Buddy and the fur boys. Sorry that there are such rude, snarky people in this world. Sending you lots of good thoughts for you and the "boys"

Big big hugs to you, my dear friend!

I am so sorry to read this Meredith, it is very upsetting to know that somebody is hurting you when you share you worries and concerns. I am sending a whole basket full of virtual hugs to cheer you up and to give you strength. Lots of love xx

Anne M said...

I am so sorry this has happened to you. I live in Australia and love to read about what is happening in your part of the world, with you and Buddy. You have had a hard past year and can do with out the comments from the “Peanut” gallery.
Good luck to you and Buddy. I hope you come back to us soon.
Regards Anne

I'm so sorry. I don't get why people feel "entitled" to snark and label it appropriate, constructive feedback! You have weathered an extremely tough year with such grace. . .putting Little Buddy always first. What a fabulous mom you are. I will miss your updates. I understand where you are coming from; but, hope you return soon.

Karen said...

I'm sorry you had to deal with such a snarky comment. Know that there are so many of us here that admire you and love you, Mere. xo

That's horrendous someone felt the need to stick their nose in your business. They obviously didn't read the room :/ I hope your troubles pass with ease and you'll be fine in the end ❤️❤️

Janice Smith said...

Aw,gee, Meredith, I’m sorry you received that snarky comment. Imagine what kind of sad, miserable life that commenter must have to send a mean comment to you of all people. Try to remember that you have so, so many more readers who love hearing about Little Buddy and who truly admire the woman that you are. Take a break, yes, but don’t stay away too long as we will all be worried about you.

Jeanie said...

I've been offline for a couple of weeks and I missed that post. But I'm so sorry you received any type of negative blow back on whatever you wrote. Our blogs are our place where we can be us. There is ALWAYS something nice one can say and if they can't (or something supportive) say nothing at all. I'm so very sorry it happened. Sending love and light your way.

Gosh look at all the loving comments! Don't let one idiot troll ruin something you enjoy. I knew you were hurting when you said you couldn't even knit. LB will straighten out in time (remember he's pre-adolescent.)You have so much on your shoulders and looks like you're carrying most of it yourself. My offer to clean your house or mow your lawn still stands. :-) Be well and happy.

SpinningStreak said...

Really sorry to read this, Meredith. I've been away from the ether for several weeks so didn't see your post. I can't imagine what negative comments anyone could have dredged up to upset you. Such rubbish.
Do come back when you're ready - and, most importantly, remember what a great job you are doing with LB. No child his age is going to tell you this himself - but we can!

Dee said...

There are people out there that just don't have a clue. I'm so sorry that someone commented on your blog.

I do hope that you will come back to blogging eventually, but I totally get having to take a break now and then.

I’m so sorry for the hurtful comment. You are such a good mother to little buddy!!! Try not to let someone who doesn’t even care about you wreck your day! Sending love and hugs…

Those people don't belong in your kind space. Sending you lots of support and kindness from over the pond. You do an amazing job every single day. xxx

Neighborhood Watch said...

This is so terrible to hear!! You are such a kind and good person and raising a child is difficult in all circumstances, much less the complicated situation you are in. Much, much love to you and Little Buddy and your boys.

gaia said...

Dear Meredith,
I am sorry about the comment. I think you are doing an amazing job. Sending you best wishes from this part of the world.
Hugs,
Gaia.

Hi Meredith, do hope you are feeling much better, please don't take any notice of someone who doesn't know you and is is so small minded they hurt others.
Wouldn't it be sensible and fantastic if all the drug bust money and sales of possessions could be used to help affected children .

Willow said...

I'm sorry. Hang in there!

Sue said...

Mere, I am thinking of you and praying for you and all who live in the path of Ian. Hope you and LB are safe and okay. Hugs to you and all your boys.
