h/t to +Sean Guenther This seems to be making the rounds, but doesn’t hurt to make sure everyone knows about this. If you use the Internet (and you are because you are reading this) this impacts you, and you need to look. In fact, Canada froze online tax filing because of this bug. Time to brush up those passwords, but make sure a site has patched this hole before you update on the site.

Breast cancer while being pregnant . . my wife is my hero!
My wife, +Meg Sager, was nominated to be an honorary bat girl for the +Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim by our amazing friend +Kate Huffman. Please take a minute to vote for Meg. You can find her entry under the person who nominated her Kate Huffman. Meg absolutely loves the Angels, and this would be such an amazing experience in the face of the challenges that breast cancer has brought to our lives.
Baby Sager was born on March 1st and is very healthy!
As I’m sure most people know by now, Fred Phelps, the leader of the Westboro Baptist Church passed away.
What a lot of people don’t know is that his granddaughter, Megan Phelps-Roper, excommunicated herself from the church a year ago because she saw the hatred & hurt. Doing this wasn’t just cutting ties with a church for her. It was also walking away from her family. If you read her recent tweets, you see how she hurts from the pain WBC inflicted on people. You’ll also see a girl hurting from the loss of her grandfather.
Westboro Baptist Church celebrates the deaths of people by protesting their funerals. Instead of mirroring their hatred, what if we showed respect for the dead and love for a girl who misses her grandpa?
when you love someone, and you know that person loves you, however, you can no longer deny that the person has lost all affection for you? You can’t help but see that you get on the person’s nerves. Even worse, you can tell the person feels guilty for the fact that they no longer enjoy you, and they remain in contact out of a sense of obligation.
What do you do when this keeps happening in your relationships through your life? What do you do when you can’t help but see the burden you are to the people you love?
What do you do when you want to end it, but you realize that is the only way you could hurt the people who love you and burden them more than you already have?
(I posted this before, chickened out & deleted…but it’s my blog & not all my thoughts are happy.)
I want to cry out for help, but who wants to hear it? I want to beg for reassurance. But even if it comes, will I believe it? I want to ask people if they love me, if they are mad at me, if I’m a burden…but I know questions like these only push people away. I want to say just how much I hurt, but it would upset the few who care & be ignored by the rest. I want to stop the pain in my head, heart & soul, but it grows. I want to cut, but I can’t try to hide the scars or tell little lies to explain them away. I want to end it, but I know that it would leave a legacy of pain for those who love me.
Sorry my posts have not been prolific of late. So burnt out on Social Media. I think it’s mostly the hype, propaganda & rhetoric surrounding the pending election in November. Anyways, rather than give a half-hearted effort to maintain the blog, I’m just going to take a break. I will be back, recharged, and ready to share. (Please don’t unfollow me… just think of it as me not cluttering your dash for a bit.)
