SixofNine-I have always been a fan of Abraham Lincoln. Once, during a meeting part where the question "Who would you like to meet after the resurrection"? I raised my hand and was called on, I said "I really want to meet Abraham Lincoln", you could've heard a pin drop in the KH lol!
caliber-I have tried for 21 years to have deeper conversations with him. He didn't hear a word said. I begged for some of his time, he owned a company and worked 70-80 hours a week, then would take off for KH builds on the weekends, leaving me alone with a toddler. I have no family within a 400 mile radius, and no one at the KH had time for a sister who's hubby wasn't with her. When I said anything to the elders or their wives, it was 'don't be jealous of Jehovah'. I would retort 'If I would've wanted to be a single parent, I would have, then I would have to do his stupid laundry'. I also would say, 'The only reason he would know if I left, would be because he ran out of clean underwear'. I have been on more vacations by myself, Europe, The Rockies, The Islands, I figured if I wanted to see or do anything, I'd have to do it with my kids, without hubby. Now that I've faded, and his business failed after over 2 decades, he's seeing that I no longer care, and he is frantic. You reap what you sow.
