You can't please everyone

Thinking back on yesterday, I realized one very simple truth:

You Can't Please Everyone!

If you're wondering what "yesterday" was mostly about, you can find all the juicy details on my BFF Kallan Kennedy's blog, or another wonderful blogger - Mrs. B of Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom. 

In addition to watching (and a bit of interacting with) the hullaballoo, I was also treated to an admonishment based on religious intolerance of my own.  See... recently I've gotten the sewing bug.  And my creative muse took me to new and unchartered territories in the form of my new line of Poppet dolls. 

Paige Poppet, who is actually the second doll in my line, was so darn cute, and so much fun to make, that I decided to list her on my Etsy shop.  And of course, I shamelessly plugged her on Facebook. 

A few weeks ago, I happened upon a young girl's profile on Facebook.  A girl who I knew many years ago.  I thought "oh, how cool!", and sent a Friend Request, which was almost immediately accepted.  Now, this girl comes from a Mormon background.  And before any of you think I'm going to bash Mormons, you're terribly wrong.  The point being, this girl came from a home where Mormonism (which is, in fact, a Christian based faith) was preached, but not very well practiced.  They were a very prideful family, taking money out of the mouths of their employees (i.e.:  not paying them) and "borrowing" but never paying back.  They hurt countless people in their quest for the almighty dollar.  All the while thumping their Book of Mormon when it suited them.

Fast forward to yesterday:  So I put up a post about my new doll, Paige.  And immediately I began getting really favorable comments.  Until my former acquaintance - who had yet to post anything on my wall or message me in any way up to this point, showed up.  Her comment?  "That's nothing to play with... and is that a pentagram that it is standing on... SERIOUSLY???"  Yes.  Seriously.  And then she de-friended me.  Lolz.

So... although there is probably a lot more I could say, I found this video on You Tube and would like to leave you all with it.  And a little cheer:
