Stepfamily problems for kids runs rampant in this country. Kids don’t choose to be stepfamily, and the problems we face is really unacceptable. I didn’t ask for my parents to get divorced, nor did I ask my dad to marry my stepmama and nor did I ask him to move us from Winston-Salem to King. I had absolutely no say in the matter.
I knew my recent post would not be received well by everyone. However, the only person that was offended is offended because like my biological family member pointed out tonight, who is older and wiser than me, she’s offended because she’s guilty of what was said. Amen to that.
It was confirmed by my stepaunt that she chose to list the biological grandkids first and the step grandkids last. Let’s be honest. Like other family members have said, both my stepfamily and biological family, she didn’t want her child listed last. Bottomline I’m over it. I forgave her a long time ago. For the record, I didn’t say anything bad about anyone. I stated my feelings were hurt and their actions were wrong. There is a big difference in bashing someone, trust me, back in the day I was a pro.
I need to apologize to my stepsister because she did not have us put at the end. So, Bridget, I’m sorry. Not making excuses, but I wasn’t sure as I stated prior, I’d been told different things.
My stepaunt sent me the below message via Facebook:
Let’s address a few things. I’ve not harbored ill feelings toward her or other family members, but clearly she harbors ill will towards me. I never said anywhere that I harbored any ill-will toward any of my stepfamily and I only stated that she had hurt my feelings tremendously by doing what she did. No one else, her. She states she never did anything “intentionally” to make me feel unaccepted. Well, is that an apology? I don’t think so. I’ve already addressed the issue of being listed at the end of my Grandpa’s obituary and I won’t go there again. See the above. She didn’t want her child listed last. She knew that it wasn’t the right or best thing to do. She claims she didn’t do it maliciously and if that’s true then great. She states “Kathryn, Marilyn, Keith, Donnie and Darrell and everyone else has always treated you and your siblings like family.” I never claimed that they didn’t. In fact, I’m surprised she left my Aunt Joan out of here because Aunt Joan has always did for us if she did for our step brother and step sister, even at Christmases where my siblings claimed that my stepsister, stepbrother and his children, and stepcousin got stuff and they didn’t from everyone. They said our Aunt Joan always gave them something, if she gave our step brother and step sister something. I wasn’t there, so I don’t know. Then she goes on to state, “If you feel differently, that’s your problem.” I couldn’t help but laugh about this one. You’re right which is why I stated in my previous post that I’ve grown up from the poor little outcast girl, and I realize that whatever problem she has with me, is her problem, not mine. I live my life to please one person. GOD! If she doesn’t care to see my ridiculous posts or track my blog, I can honestly careless. I’m sorry if that sounds harsh, did she want me to say, “I’m hurt, I’m crushed, I’m going to ball up in a ball and die now.” HAHA NOT!!! I’ve got 21,000+ fans that care about my “ridiculous” posts and love them. I’ve got tons of people reading this blog daily. So sorry to say you’re hatefulness toward me now is as irrelevant as the day it begun. She stated, “I’m not perfect, but I am forgiven and the Lord knows my intentions, all of them – past, present and future. Take care.” You’re dang skippy He does, and God will judge her in the end, she has to answer to Him for what she’s done. She’s got to live with it. Not me. Matthew 7 says not to judge, and I’m not going to.
I just wanted to point out that my sister, or stepsister ‘technically’ posted a photo with no caption of her cousin, our brother, my cousin and her. Note: The comment from my stepaunt is that “Josh is missing from the photo. “Not Josh, Samson, Courtney and Audrey. If she really considered us “part of the family” then why didn’t she mention the “stepkids”, I’ll tell you why. Because we are and always will be “stepfamily” in her mind and that’s fine by me. However, she shouldn’t speak for the entire Moore family and last time I checked, she married in to the family, so it just doesn’t seem right, in my opinion. I deleted last names from the below photo, as again I won’t stoop to this level. I want to point out that even if the rest of the Moore family feels this way, none of them have ever done things like this to our face at least.
Note: Since when do Christians take God’s name in vain and curse?

What the fuck is your goddam problem are you crazy talking shit about my family the way you are on Facebook
What about your blog then
- Pat passed away right after I arrived. That’s a fact. If you don’t believe that. Ask Bridget who was there and announced his passing.
- I may be fat, but I look good enough to be on TV, so your standards are irrelevant, much like your opinion.
- The only thing not pretty, is your attitude.
- I don’t advise you threatening me.
- Last but certainly not least, you don’t own King, you don’t live in King, and I’ve got several friends that still reside there, I will be seeing them.
- Don’t EVER call me again, unless you’re calling to apologize. Otherwise, I’ll take the entire Facebook conversation and forward it to the appropriate parties.
- Last but not least, Judge not, lest thee be judged.
When you’re younger you don’t see this type of debauchery and the ill-will toward you or your siblings. When you get older and wiser you start to recognize and see these things for what they are. I didn’t realize that she didn’t include me in a lot of things, other family members asked questions and that is when things came into persepective. What is relevant is how you choose to deal with this ill-will and debauchery. I’ve moved on, and I’m happy with my family. We’re far from perfect, but we love each other. Those in my stepfamily that treat me like family are still just that, my family. I don’t believe in all the “step” crap. Because if we all want to get down and technical about it, we all believe we came from Adam and Eve, so last I checked, that means we’re all related in some form, fashion or other. I’d just like to believe that when it comes to my husband, we’re so distant related it’s not even noticeable or relevant. Pasty white and Golden Copper unite. LOL HAHA
For the record, I never pointed anyone out or pointed a finger until now and only because the finger was pointed at me.
Now I’m going to enjoy my very happy surprise that I talked about earlier. Details and photos to come soon. WOOHOO
