    I don't "feel" anything...but I do "think": Hey, no windows still.

    Happy, that I am not stopping to go in this time. My illness has made it possible to miss many meetings. But being sick is a drag.

    It is interesting that you post this because the other day I was with my gf and we drove by one. Inside I immediately became anxious and a little upset. When I go by the one in my hometown, I get angry because I remember how the people from there treated me. I do not know why it still has this hold over me, but it does. It is interesting....

    The KH in my area is on the main road and I'm forced to drive by it whenever I leave the house. Regarding what I think, it depends on what I see. Today when I drove by on my way to the post office I saw only two cars in the parking lot for Saturday morning field service. A couple things went through my head. First, I was mildly surprised at the few people out. Secondly, I thought of the older "sister" who's car I saw and felt sad about all the years she's invested in the JWs. On Wednesday when I drove by I saw all the pioneer car in the parking lot and I thought to myself "what a waste. seven people who could be doing something good for the community instead of giving away magazines that people just throw away."

    Wouldn't ya know it, my son's girlfriend lives a block behind the local KH. Everytime I drive by I get very naughty ideas of various forms of vandalism....I just laugh it off now, but at first it made me physically ill to have to drive by. I do look at how cars are parked and how many are out in service, then thank my lucky stars to be free at last!

    I think that I still have keys to some of them.

    I just drove by the hall a half hour ago.

    I think how glad I am to be out and how I feel for those still in. I see cars there for service and think......what a waste.....what a waste. All these people going through 'routine' to "fill their obligation" to men.....and to God.I suppose it's as good of a waste of time as anything else.......the danger lies in them getting others involved who will put their life and trust into a false hope.
