Over the past two months she has been emailing me jokes and stories that no JW would ever read. I ran into her this weekend and she was talking about what she was going to do on her birthday today. Her language around me is also lightly "salted". Last spring she got her BS in nursing degree indicating she does not see the world ending in her estimation. She is married to an elder that has cancer which is not responding to treatment. I am suspecting that when/if he does not make it she will have little reason to continue the charade and make the move.
My family comes from a very long line of JW's going back to before WWI and very few have ever left. I get a sixth sense that she has changed and I have never been around someone fading before. When I was a JW they faded away and I never saw of spoke to them. After I left none of them spoke to me so this will be a first. If she does fade it will send a massive shock wave through my family since it has been 23 yrs since I left.
I am not a very intuitive person but I know my sis well enough to know something is up. The prospects of having a normal relationship with my sister once again is heartwarming to say the least.
