Someone was incredibly rude to me, but because children were present and obviously aware of the atmosphere, I chose to simply walk away and not take on my critic. Afterwards (like you do) I asked myself if I should have spoken up, and whether I was in fact a Difficult Woman who should mend her ways. Eventually, after a lot of prayer and reflection I concluded that it had been right to spare the children embarrassment, but it also reminded me that I don't have to apologise to anyone for being a woman unafraid to state a strong opinion. You don't have to agree and I'm not afraid to be challenged, even if I do have to choose which battles to fight and which to walk away from.
All this was in my mind as I worked on this page - a simple painted background with collage elements.
