A Mom Blog Social Network
Last night we got together with some good friends. The scene was idyllic, Mayberry-like even, as we sat on their front porch watching our kids ride bikes up and down the street, play in the sandbox and eat watermelon.
“How’s StealingFaith going?” asked the man of the house.
“Pretty good,” I said. I told him the most surprising aspect of the stats: on any given day internet surfers from every continent visit StealingFaith (except Antarctica – penguins don’t care about Google)… and they almost exclusively enter on the How to Say You’re Sorry post.
“Too bad you can’t do a series around that,” he said. We looked at each other thoughtfully, then called in our spouses, devilish gleams in our eyes. “Let’s brainstorm on How to Hold a Grudge!”
So, we did. I can’t claim all of this creativity as my own, as this post is the product of four minds and a lot of laughter, but I am pretty tickled with the result.
If you’re going to wallow in unforgiveness and absolutely, under no circumstances, never, ever, EVER, say you’re sorry, well you’d best do it right.
