Weeellll dagnabbit I've missed this heeeere place As for the topic.. a non sequitur...
I've been shunned, away and free for uh... umm.. oh heck, a decent decade anyway and what happens upon my doorstep? 'They' show up and meet the wrath of my daughter. They asked for us by names, which freaked Beth out, and wanted to welcome us back into the flock. Anyone else getting these loving sheparding calls eons too late?
Beth glared a "Don't you know she's disfellowshipped"? To which these ever so loving people replied, "That's why we're here today - to find out if she'd like to come back" Well, Beth in tiny stature, tore a strip off them both in no uncertain terms. All these well edumacated people could respond was, "It's a beautiful day, don't you think"? Beth, frothing at the mouth now, raised her voice and said, "I don't care what kind of day it is so long as you people aren't at my doorstep"! ... and slammed the door. Well, there may have been an expletive or four, but will they get the message? Or do you think they'll be back to find 'me' ? Taking bets now......
Now, I'm really proud of Beth, as she has held a quiet rage for the KH and it's followers since the days, and that HAD to be therapeutic for her. I wasn't home btw, hence her 'taking the door'. And since arriving at this site tonight - I had forgotten that it was Memorial time. I'm in the 'R's in the alphabet - are they doing this return to gather their dead thing alphabetically? Cos this is the first time they've done this to us. A decade goes by and after being shunned all this time, I'm supposed to desire to go back? What are they thinking, and what makes them decide to call on a certain individual? I never even went to a congregation in this area.
Huge hugs to all I know here; I miss you - just been trying to survive another winter, which seems to be over. I'm not a winter person and I go on autopilot until the time changes again to give us more sunlight.
Huge hellos to the incredible amount of new ones here!
Simon - site is incredible
Joy - you still have that Merlot?
