Like Sassy said................
and me.. well everytime I do something I didn't do before, it bothers me that I haven't done it before. I feel stupid
I've been out for a few years but a little over 2 weeks ago I wrapped my first birthday presents to my daughter. And she is now 33 yrs. old. It felt strange but VERY liberating doing the gift wrap. Made me feel kind of "giddy" doing it even though my wrapping skills need to be developed!
Now I can't wait until Xmas to buy and wrap a lot of presents for a lot of people. G*d Dammit...........why did we have to miss all of this as dubs? Makes me really pissed to think of all the birthdays and whatnot that was stolen from ones we loved.
Over the years.......we(close jw family "inlaws") would privately give a present to the kids on their birthdays and let them know "that even though we don't celebrate birthdays" we want you to know that this is a special day that Jehovah brought you into our lives............. What sick idiots we all were!
CELEBRATE, CELEBRATE, CELEBRATE........the person and his/her day. Damn........we celebrated the day of death better than a day of life in dubdumb.
Always celebrated my wedding anniversary...........big time with big gifts........but that was OK. Where is the scriptural difference? AINT NONE!
Haven't got into voting yet but am now registered.......both guys suck big time (IMHO) and I won't pick the lesser of 2 evils. But in all my years in industry and being a union man and a "dub", I always voted in the union elections. But I was told that was ok......YEP! WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE between a union rep and a council, town, burg, city or country rep?
If you haven't noticed..........I LOVE MY NEW LIFE AS AN XJW.
