    Well, it certainly has been an enlighting experence reading this board. Thank you for all your welcome. Never in a million years did I think that i was going to find more than one (my sister) person that shared my experience in the JW's. The threads that i have been reading are outstanding!!!. The one on disappointment was the BOMB! The biggest ever. I really hit me that there WERE people just like me that had the same feelings and thoughts about JW's as I do. I never researched anything because once I was gone, I really did not want anything to do with them at all. This included my parents. Growing up a JW gives you a warped since of what things are really like and once you are on the outside.......the world is you oyster!!!!

    I never would have imagined that there were so many of me's out there. It is so wonderful not to feel crazy. There are others that feel and think the same way as I do!!!!!! The best part!!!!!

    I cook Thanksgiving. I love Christmas. I live my childhood through my children. The look in the eyes of children on X-mas morning is...... there is nothing like it in this world.

    Thanks to all that have helped me get logged in and to Melba for showing me the way.

    Love to all,

    I'm glad you are enjoying, through your kids, what you didn't get to experience as a JW.

    Live well, best revenge for those stuck in a cult, err, village, umm high control group.
