I had lunch with a friend and she was sharing with me a story about sister "so and so" and brother "so and so" and what everyone else thought about their dating, and how long their "courtship" should be and still be considered ok - is it too long, too short, - would they get in trouble because he stopped by the house to say hi when the rest of her family was gone - was it ok that they stood out in the front yard - what elder so and so's wife said - yadda yadda yadda.............as her words blurred together all I could think was THANK GOD I AM FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!
What stress it was to live my life under such a microscope. It wasn't whether I did something wrong or not (just like these two individuals) - it was could I PROVE that I DIDN'T do something wrong when I was accused by someone else.
FREE AT LAST.........FREE AT LAST.....THANK GOD ALMIGHT I'M FREE AT LAST!!!
whew! Good thing too because my husband's friend stopped over last night to drop off some tools while my husband was still at work - and since it was really cold and raining I let him in the house - what a wild woman I am...living on the edge like that
