much to my delight, my oldest son has expressed interest in jwd and would like to post on the forum, i allow him to read pretty much everything anyway and am not too worried about what i know he will encounter here (ie swearing etc!
) as i'm sure he comes across that on most websites.. is there an age a poster has to be?

i am trying to find an old post i know i've seen on here a year or two ago about the old testamant and how cruel god was to animals (i specifically remember it talking about horses being slaughtered in a very cruel way).
i think it was a link to a web page about it.. thanks in advance.

been dragged screaming into 2007 and decided i absolutely must be on facebook... .
if you were in my address book it's sent out an invite, otherwise.. i'd be pathetically grateful for new friends, my profile is sad.

so, i found out today that my whole family, that is mother, older brother wife and child, older sister and husband, younger brother and wife have gone away together for a week.. previously i would have been right in the center of all that.
this time i didn't even know until after they'd gone.
cant say it doesn't hurt, what a punch to the gut.

4am in the uk, and i was jolted awake by a dream about my mother dying, she is not in good health.
i felt overwhelmingly sad that if this happens, she will die in sadness over me.
and also very upset because she is my mum and i want her to love me and be interested in my life and that just isn't the case any longer.. i realise i am 'luckier' than some on here because at least she speaks to me.

i had to tell someone, surprisingly not one of my witness family were interested even though i am not dad or dfd.. i went for and got a promotion at work today, i worked hard at my interview and am delighted with my new position.
the only people that cared were my boyfriend and two very close friends i have made since leaving the org.
it leaves me tinged with sadness, but those are the breaks!.

my mum proudly showed me the latest development, a cheap horrible paperback bible, she said how great it was to be able to turn the pages so easily!!
how do the dubs do it?
get people excited over making things cheaper and nastier.

so my mother 'invited' me to the special talk today.. made me smile that at least she knows i would not be going otherwise (i'm not going anyway!).
she handed me the watchtower with the invitation printed on it and said i could keep it.
i just said thank you, put the wt down on her table and left it there.

short background, i am seperated, ex is still a witness, but very weak, all my family and his very devout, i allow my younger brother to come once a week to study with my two boys 11+12.
which you might think is nuts, but i want more than anything to give them choice, and not to be in direct opposition to their father or other family.
youngest son is a nightmare in the study..lol.
