Little Bit of Light, O Lord

Hey Y'all!

I posted over at 5 Minutes for Parenting today about what a Mama like me feels on a day like today. Come on over!

Y'all can subscribe to FriedOkra's feed here.


  1. Will you tell your children that you voted for a man based solely on the color of his skin?

  2. Hello Anonymous!

    I will not tell my children that because it isn't true. You don't know how I voted, nor do you know the reasons I voted the way that I did. You don't even know *IF* I voted. Do you?

    Will you tell your children that you left an anonymous, mean comment on an honest, amiable person's blog (whom you clearly don't know very well at all) because you've chosen to write something you aren't proud enough of to own? So that she couldn't respond to you one-on-one and know your identity? Will you tell them that? I wonder.

    Don't be a coward. My email address clearly stated above. If you'd like to talk about this with me directly, then email me. If you just want to make baseless accusations for shock value or to hurt others, do it on your own blog. Your brand of "conversation" isn't welcome here.

    Thank you.

  3. Well Anonymous,

    I am a Christian, an American, a Republican, and I am Megan's husband, I am a loving father. ....who are you? MLK was about human rights for a down trodden people. ...not politics! Use your energy to help someone! a light, as Christ wants us to be. Love, Al

  4. I'd just like to stick my nose in here and say thank you to our Lord.

    He has given Al such a beautiful measure of grace to bestow on Mr/Ms Anonymous. I didn't even think to give that grace, but Al did.

  5. He's a very graceful man, my husband. I love that about him!

  6. Some people are just plain obnoxious.

    A few months ago, I was told that I *didn't* vote for the current President because of his skin color. Don't you love it when anonymous strangers make baseless comments?

    Really Megan, don't give it another thought. When I get comments like that, I simply delete them and don't respond. If someone can only say something anonymously, it doesn't deserve my time.


  7. I'm upset by this too. I have to assume that this anonymous person isn't a regular reader of your blog or they would know that isn't how you work.
    I say ignore this person. As I have said many times before after reading things about Al - I love him! He is way more gracious about this ignorant remark than I would be.

  8. WOOT for Al! What maturity and graciousness... you've got a good man, there, Megan. :) HUGS
