A personal note of humble apology to my friend Becci Green by Judy Hensley
Posted Mar 31 2009 11:36pm
This is NOT an April fool posting…I am very serious. I would like to personally apologize for the insensitive manner in which I attempted to describe ’da coat and it’s appearance and rejection of initially posing with the coat by a Parkie that I called ‘flutterby’ that I wrote about in a previous entry. In NO way did I mean to imply or make it seem that flutterby ‘hated’ the coat. And I furthermore stand corrected on the quote I ascribe to to her about “I would rather die than wear that coat!” I misquoted her.
I hope and pray I will more thoughtfully consider any future statements I make when writing about anyone. I’m deeply sorry if I have hurt your feelings, Becci. You are a wonderful friend who was teasingly being a holdout on wearing the coat that evening in Reston. You did wear it and your picture in it with a wonderful smile is one I will always treasure.
And please ….to all of you, if I ever write anything about you that makes you uncomfortable or you feel is totally off base, let me know, OK? I get a little bit excited at times and don’t always express my feeling the best in writing. I feel that this effort of an apology is inadequate but I felt I must try. I love and admire my friend Becci Green and would never want to hurt her feelings, but I have and I am most regretful that it happened. I will learn from this and hopefully will prayerfully consider every word I write in the future, such that the words I use are the most honest and best description of actions I ascribe to others.
