Even if they don't care about me, don't they care about my wife and kid? Nope
Yes, exactly. Maybe that's why it makes feel well...a combination of sad and irritated. How in the world do they rationlize it in their minds.
Could it be a completely new body of elders after 20 years and no one knows you?
Have they lost the paperwork on you/?
Could be new elders, ...but what about my family. They know where I am. Only because I make it a point to let them know. My name hasn't changed in the last 13 years, my address is hasn't changed in 9years. I come up in those people search sites. I checked.
Every so often I'll be jolted awake by a dream that a family member has died and that I'm being told that I'm expected to stay away from a funeral/memorial service, or that I find out months after the fact, and everyone thinks I'm a heartless callous b*tch for not having attended.
I'm expecting the same thing.
Or a dream where I've died and none of my family members shows up.
I told my husband not to waste a long distance phone call on them. If they ever called he could mention it then...if they asked.
Why is it that they care more about converting perfect strangers than they are about finding the 'lost sheep that strayed'? Are they so selfish that they don't even seem to give a damn that I'm going to be destroyed at Armageddon™? Why aren't they trying to save me from that destruction?
I lay awake at night and wonder the same thing.
I found out that last summer my parents went to a convention in GA where my sister lives, then came back and went to the one they were assigned to......that's right they didn't get enough the first time...although my parents lived 3 hours away from me, the convention they were assigned to and attended, (for a second scoop of spiritual food)..(would that make them gluttens?)...was 10 minutes from my house.
They didn't call, didn't stop by.
It makes me angry for a while. Then I calm down and am so grateful that I am not like them
