You’ve probably noted the silence ehre and that some of the blog posts have disappeared. If you don’t follow me on Twitter, or if you missed my tweets on the subject, you might be wondering what happened.
The short story of it is that people can be awful. And I’m not talking about some minor bullying or the comment I got on here about how I should repent or I’ll go to hell for being a Heathen. That stuff is water off a duck. Sadly, the awful I’m talking about involves my child.
I got some terrible, gut wrenching news that my best friend from childhood – we gre up together from 3rd grade through high school – is a pedophile who has been making and selling child porn online. It makes me nauseous to even type it out so I won’t linger on the subject. This news shook me to my core. You think you know someone and they turn out to be a monster…
At the same time a friend was discussing child safety on the internet, mostly regarding young teens but really for any kid. Her words were seeded and starting to sprout in the manure of the aforementioned news – this friend had access to pictures of my son and while none were of a sexual nature it still bothers me.
Then the straw that broke the camels back – 2 creepers on Instagram on separate but notable occasions went through and liked ALL of the pictures of my child then sent me creepy comments and questions about my being a MILF, how pretty my child was, and then things of a sexual nature.
This all happened in a matter of a couple of weeks and it was terrible.
I went on a delete frenzy and shut down some social media and so on. I’m sure I missed a few things but yea…right now the only pics of my kid going out are to a handful of family members that don’t live near enough to us to see him. My mama heart is scared.
So here we are – on a blog I created to share homeschooling and hearth information. I’m not sure what will happen from here. I’ll be spending this time healing my heart and asking the Gods what They want of me.
My Your Gods Bless and Keep You
