Okay so what is happening in my life .......my best friend for the past three yrs. is MOVING away to Chicago .
She has been a lifeline for me as I left the cult life .We worked at a gift store together . She introduced me into how normal people live . She taught me all about having fun on weekends and yet maintaining somewhat of a Christian life. This woman is the happiest , most fun person I have ever known . She and her husband have been instrumental in helping my husband get over the guilt he felt leaving the witnesses . I am sad to see her move ,but we have promised to keep in touch .We will now live 2 and a half hrs. away from each other.
Another thing that is going on in my life is that I now think all my children have chosen to fade from JW's !!! My oldest son and his wife have recently moved to a different state and so far have made no mention of attending a new hall . Every Sunday I speak to them they have been out house hunting ,shopping , or hiking ! I have been very quite about my views to them not wanting to scare them off . Now I think it might be safe to ask a few questions to see what they are thinking .
My other adult son has not been to a meeting since last summer . He still doesn't bring up any topics so I let it be . However he is making new friends outside the cult and is talking about going back to college .
Of course our youngest is totally free of JWism . He has put in an application to become a police officer and if that doesn't pan out is still considering the Coast Guard Reserves.
It has been a few years now since our fade and things look better every day............. so to all newbies HANG IN THere !!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for listening anyone .......
