My wife and I were invited to dinner by a coworker of hers. She wasn’t sure if she wanted to go because the place they were going was where her best friend from the kingdumb hell works. It was a big group of “worldly” people. I wanted to go to meet new people. It was a big restaurant and the likelihood of us being seated in her section was low.
We went and yup we got seated in her section. A little background. I am good friends with her husband. He is the only one from the hall that will have anything to do with me but on a very limited basis. His wife- the server- doesn’t like that I left and wont let him hang out with me when she’s around and gives him a hard time when she finds out we did hang out.
It was fun and both my wife and I enjoyed ourselves. About 30 min in my wife turned to me and said “Does she (the server) seem up set?” I said “Yeah she does. She doesn’t like me and is probably upset seeing you with a group of worldies.”
This morning my wife is going to the 2 day assembly and will see her – server- there. I think she is a little apprehensive as to what the server will say to her about all this. I’m just happy my wife is expanding out. I am really trying hard to get her to see TTATT and have her lead a “normal” life. She has already expressed to me that she takes a lot of the teachings of the WTBTS with a grain of salt. I think she’s in for her mom and some of her friends. This is just one more step in her eventual awakening… hopefully.
