The internet exhaust me. How do you fix this one? I love GCM but I get seriously exhausted sometimes. What would you do to fix this besides unplug? Sometimes I want to unplug RL too and just sit around on my sofa eating bonbons.

Bravo!


I can't tell you how much those words from Proverbs spoke to my heart today...and not even in regards to the message board.

Oh! What a great post!

I had no idea that staff (mods) were willing to sometimes review a potential post (if we felt led to say 'the hard thing'). Thanks for letting us know!

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the world. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down. Tells you she's hurting before she keens. Makes her a home.

Thank you for such beautifully written words of advice.

Did anyone else feel that this post itself is a wonderful example of gentle discipline? The "expectations" are clearly stated. The tone is firm, especially in regard to how we treat each other, but is gentle. It reminds us that we are responsible for our own words and actions, and that we should slow down and be intentional in our choices. Most importantly, it stresses how fortunate we all are to have this "family," and conveys a love for this group that is so deep that it literally brought tears to my eyes.

While this may have technically been a post about message board etiquette, all I could think while reading it is that it made me feel exactly the way I want to make my children feel.

Thank you, Allison.
