I found this in my email from a dear Midland, MI friend. Although I only lived there a year, I still feel the love from the church members there. It has been over six years since we have spoken.
I had to double check to see if she was even a facebook friend. I know I don't get any "like"s or comments from her, most likely because she and her husband are very involved in republican politics. It turns out we ARE facebook friends, and she decided long ago not to follow my posts....which I really appreciate, in a way, because if someone doesn't agree with me, I really don't want to hear about it. I don't need to know, because it consumes me with worry. And I don't like to fight.
You would think I would just choose the popular opinions to avoid confrontation.
But nobody can tell me I don't know what I know.
So, I get this strange email, that seems at first to be in support of what I already know, that Tylenol does more harm than good, and I was about to send a quaint reply. I decided I should probably read a bit more closely....and sure enough, it's propaganda from the pro-vaxers.
No...you see...you missed it! It was SO obvious! You THINK it was the vaccines?? (insert chuckle here with a pat on the back) Nooooo.....(big grin) it was the TYLENOL you gave your child BEFORE he got his shots!
I politely replied to my friend as follows:
individual plans from Heavenly Father. You're a great mom!
