I expressed my sincerest condolences by offering positive consolation on a post, and it was rejected. Someone was saying that she loves Nancy Pelosi so much that she would choose Nancy to be a grandmother to her own grandchildren. She had expressed earnest hope that Nancy would retain her Speaker of the House position, and had every faith that she would.
When this poor member’s hopes were dashed, I rushed right over to share some words of encouragement. I felt compelled to help this grieving woman look at the positive side as she soulfully laments the loss. The thanks I got? She deleted my comment. If I have offended her in any way, I apologize profusely. I certainly would never want to add to her pain in these darkest of days following the agonizing defeat of the would-be proxy grandmama.
I said, “She has plenty of time for visits and singing lullabies now.” I thought that would be comforting, but it was not appreciated. Perhaps I should also have reminded her that Nancy still retains her House of Representatives seat and is worth well over $12 million, so she's not so sad. She just has more time for visits and lullabies, and maybe even a visit and a lullaby for you. Some people just can't be consoled, though.
