I was. Sometimes I think of all the pain I caused my parents when I left their home to pursue my bible studies. It happend right around the holidays and my father's birthday, and seemed to be such a slap in the face to him. He almost didn't come to my wedding, to walk me down the aisle, since I would not attend family functions around holidays and birthdays (he did walk me down the aisle; after I made some appearances but made it clear I was not celebrating).
Now that I am out, I am so glad I have been able to repair my relationships with my parents and siblings. One Christmas, we were all over my folks house (about 30 kids and grandkids), and my dad whispered to me "This is what it's all about - family being together". It really made me appreciate being there to share that for him.
Anyone else in a similar situation?
