Trust is Earned Over Time « Stuff Important to Me »

Not many people have joined in on my criticism of Planned Parenthood (which seems to have expanded to a discussion of abortion in general).

For the most part, my debates/disputes with Jo are not as adversarial as they might seem. I respect her position, and she respects mine, and we'll often send emails to each other to soften what might seem to be heavy blows in the discussion. Because in the discussion, we are sparring...but we remain friends outside the discussion. Our ideas do battle, but our hearts/friendship don't need to. It took us a while (and some misunderstandings) to get to that point.

And that's all I'm going to say about that.

Jo, thanks for being a good friend and being patient with me sometimes.

You have been more than patient and considerate with me as well, and I am thankful for it.

I think we have a tendency to push each other to expand our thinking...nothing wrong with that!

I just noted there's a couple more comments on that thread...better check it out. ;)

Furthermore, I suppose readers should know I sometimes concede some things privately. Not often, but sometimes. ;)
