Saturday I called my mom and she was telling me about my little brother's robotic competition that he's involved in. Apparently, his team has made the state finals and they had the competition the next day. I'm starting to think she's softening on the whole WT thing for these reasons:
1) She talks to me often and hasn't threatened shunning in over a year. She used to ask "what are you going to do about the truth?" on a monthly basis. I was baptized at a young age and left when I came out of the closet but was never disfellowshipped.
2) She's letting my little brother participate in after school activities which would have never been allowed when I lived at home.
3) She's missing a meeting to bring my brother to the competition. Her only complaint about going to the competition was that she has to be there so early in the morning.
This is all good news. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
