So I log on to Facebook this morning and see this status posted by my uncle:
"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. ~Mahatma Gandhi"
Below it is the following response from my GM:
“It's too bad that more people don't know this. It's also the Christian thing to do.”
Then, a short while later, my uncle posts this:
"To go along with my last quote .... "The great French Marshall Lyautey once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The gardener objected that the tree was slow growing and would not reach maturity for 100 years. The Marshall replied, 'In that case, there is no time to lose; plant it this afternoon!'" John F. Kennedy"
Now, I admit it’s ENTIRELY possible I’m just paranoid given recent events and, because of that, I’m reading too much into all of this. But it just seems a little TOO coincidental to me, know what I mean? As if these messages are intended as subtle messages for ME.
As confirmation, up comes a status update from my aunt K (same aunt that's married to the uncle who posted the previous comment above) that reads:
"Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile."
And shortly after that, another comment from my GM in response to my aunt’s post that reads:
"Love it K, if only everyone could follow those thoughts."
Yep. NM has definitely been a busy little bee, buzzing along the gossip line and spreading her toxic lies about what a horrible daughter I am.
At first, I admit, I was a tad upset. After all, no one likes to feel people don't like her or are against her. But then I began to see my extended FOO for the immature, sad, pathetic (and, dare I say, passive-aggressive?) bunch that they are. At that point, all I could do was laugh. So laugh I did!
I mean, really...what is this supposed to be, "death by quoting"? LOL Give me a break!
Methinks some people need to get a life. (Or at least a good hobby!)
Edited to add...
Just as I finished posting this, I discovered yet ANOTHER entry by my uncle. This one reads:
"[...]to go along with the other two ... "Never ruin an apology with an excuse." ~ Kimberly Johnson"
