Earlier today, I received a card in the mail. It is pictured below, with my address hidden.
It frightens me beyond belief that someone would take the time to write this card, and mail it to me, finding out my address. Cutting the "ho ho ho" part out. Really just taking the time to do this. It's scary.
But I want you to know, I won't be bullied.
I will NOT be bullied.
Could this be a reaction to this post where I called out the strangers who harrassed us at my daughter's ballet performance? Maybe, but those individuals were nameless and description-less in my piece, other than age ranges and gender, so it is surprising that someone would get that worked up about it, but then again, they called me a horrible parent for bringing a three year old to the ballet so who knows really.
So I wanted to share this with all of you, in the hopes that one of you know who decided to send this to me, and decided to threaten me and my family, and name call. Purposely using the holiday to disguise their hatred. If this handwriting looks familiar to you, or you know who did this, email me immediately at Jenny at mamatoga.com. I will not put up with anonymous, bullying behavior. It won't be tolerated. I will stand up for myself and I will always, always stand up for and protect my family.
I will also always strive to keep this space a positive community, as I have for the past seven years, but again, I want all of you to know that I won't be bullied. I won't. Don't mess with the Mama Bear.
You didn't take any joy out of my holiday, random stranger(?) who decided to be a Grinch. If anything you have made me want to make everything that much brighter around me and my community. You lose.
