    I regret that I was responsible for my father coming into the "truth." He later became one of those hard-nosed elders. I also regret raising my children in the "truth." Only my daughter is still in and she is a fanatic. Long story short--after caring for my parents needs for seven years, including long hours of intense personal care of my mother who had Alzheimers, my daughter complained to my father that I was missing meetings, no longer publishing, that I said something that she interpreted as negative about the Society and guess what? My father decided to disinherit me. He gave his estate to her instead.

    I don't regret marrying Clyde, however, but I know that over the years he regretted marrying me. He was close to 20 years ahead of me in discovering this wasn't the truth, and those were hard years as I was trying to "hang in there." Clyde and I are finally back on track, and we are really quite happy. I just feel bad about the wasted years, but can look forward to the future...what's left of it.

    So now I try to concentrate on what's good in my life--a good husband, two good sons, a wonderful daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren who I adore. But it's hard to forget that my family has been split in half--not only my daughter, but several cousins, my brother, and my niece barely talk to me, and I'm not even disfellowshipped. I keep reminding myself that it's not totally their fault--it's the Borg....

    I can't believe this, but I now know why.....God was behind my actions....

    in the 30 years as a JW, as far as I know, I NEVER converted one single person. Planted several seeds, but they never got watered, *thankGod*
