But you guys - I had something kind of weird/creepy happen today. I came home, pulled the trash cans in and collected the mail. As I was going through it, there was a nondescript little envelope addressed to "Resident." Huh. Junk mail, I thought. I almost threw it away, but instead brought it upstairs and opened it. Inside was a typed and photocopied list of about 10 anti-Mormon websites. I can't remember all of them, but there was one called ConcernedChristians and another called 4Mormon.com or org - can't remember now. I went to one of them just to see what it was, and it was a site with stories about ex-Mormons, and how they became ex-Mormons, and their pathetic little stories.
It was very creepy. There was no other message - just the list of websites. So I started to wonder: were we targeted or was this sent to everyone in the neighborhood? Or did someone have a list of Mormons in the area? I tell you, it makes you look at your neighbors funny, and I don't want to do that.
I've never EVER had anything like this happen, and it's very disappointing. Things like this make me wonder why people can't just be concerned about themselves, and stop worrying about my salvation. I don't bother anyone or pressure anyone with my beliefs - why would someone want to be so unkind as to try to insult mine? (I say "try" because the attempt was ridiculous, and ignorant, to say the least)
Has anyone else ever gotten anything like this, randomly and anonymously, in the mail? It's more than a little creepy.
On a happier note, Mia had a happy day today at preschool. She got to write her name on a chalkboard and on Thursday its *gasp* sharing day! Very, very big stuff. She also received her new book from Mema - The Kissing Hand. (If you've never seen this book, and you have a little one going to preschool, check it out - it's darling!) Things are looking up in Mesa.
I think the little island girl will soon become a desert flower...
