I’m guessing they’re all so stressed about Anna Marie that wasn’t even a consideration. They’re probably impressed they even remembered to post anything about her birthday. 

I meant next year or so.

I love to do random acts of kindness because (perhaps selfishly?) it makes me feel better.  Like what @Hane said - if I’m feeling down, knowing something I did made a difference or helped someone else

Steve Maxwell stands on the doorstep, and sings to his young neighbors, passing on his - um . . . unusual - view of Jesus’ love and forgiveness: You better watch out, You better not sin, Or f

My great aunts (all have passed away now, sadly) used to go away for sisters’ weekends. Hearing about those weekends was always such a hoot. One year, three of the four went shopping while the one sta

Sarah's parents are doing her no favors by calling her a hard worker.  They are inflating her self worth just to keep her under their watchful eyes.  If she questions her existence and why her life is the way it is, she has two parents who pump her up and tell her how great she's doing.  They do it for selfish reasons.  That's pathetic.

This. Even if they are Maxwells and are probably kept blissfully unaware of anything concerning sweet fellowship, surely at least one of the "girls" must be curious. They do have the same hormones everyone else has, even if that doesn't suit with Steve's world view, and seeing attractive men (or women, God forbid!) must cause some reactions in them.

Those poor girls, getting the same urges we all get, and being able to do nothing about them, just pray them away and happily continue dusting the cabinets...

Even worse, the Spinster Sisters probably believe those "urges" are sinful and feel shamed and embarrassed by them. Just another way they've been right royally ripped off by a patriarchal system that views women as possessions without any personal autonomy.

Do you think if Sarah asked to stop the birthday posts, her parents would make them anyway and tell her she should work on her gratitude?

I certainly hope not! I'd like to think that after they didn't post about Joseph being married until he WAS, and they were gonna do that for John and Chelsy as well, that they've learned SOMETHING about respecting their kids as adults. But we'll never know for sure. Or did any of you who spied at their conferences catch any such conversations between parents and "kidults"? Like tell Sarah she's needed over here; while she's talking to a gentleman?

I don't think that was out of respect for the kidults at all.  I think that was totally due to Steve's embarrassment over Elizabeth dumping Joseph and never, ever wanting to be publicly humiliated like that again.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘

      It's Friday so yay!  But sweet Jesus I need it to be the end of the day already.  Crappy week and I'm so ready for it to be over.
