I should have been able to guess. She always seems to have the right things to say.

Wish I had a direct line, I could use some words of wisdom today, I'm kind of down. :cry:

What"s up Cool? Can we do something for you?

I know those "blue" days hit sometimes. I get them myself.
I feel pretty good today the day after Christmas. I am glad to have
been able to spend the time with family and reflect on the birth of our
Savior. What an important day it was and how thankful I am that he was
born.

Let us know if we can encourage you in any way.

PS. I just recently became a junior member myself!!!!

I don't know if I can put it in a way that you (when I say "you" I mean everyone) can understand, but it saddens me enough to know that my wife won't celebrate Christmas with me and that if I want to feel like I'm celebrating at all I have to travel to my brothers house. Not that I don't like going to my bothers for Christmas, but------. But then to hear my wife and her kids making plans for the day. To me when you say you don't celebrate a certain holiday that means that you treat that day just like every other day.

But my wife and her kids and a bunch of other JW's got together and went up and played in the snow, then after that my wife and the kids went to a movie. This is not "the norm" around our house and these are things we do as "special". So to me it just seems like they had their own special day and I had mine, separate, with out my wife at my side, I just don't find much joy on special days.

How sad is it that your (my) friends try to make your (mine again) birthday special for you because they all know that your wife won't even say "happy birthday".

I've almost come to dislike them because I see couples enjoying them together and I can't.

I'm pathetic aren't I. :oops:

You are not pathetic Cool you are quite normal. The Lord gave us the gift of family and you want to enjoy your family as the Lord intended. The Watchtower on the other hand uses family as a control mechanism.

By the way Witnesses getting together and doing things at Christmas is quite the norm in the JW world. I remember folks in our congregation and other nearby congregations would rent cabins or rooms in the lodge at a local state park each year. The kids would swim in the indoor pool and the adults would party. I think a lot of it was to get away from the reminders of what we were missing. I think somehow it helped my kids to forget the pain of missing out on Christmas.

Just my two cents!

Not pathetic at all Cool. I can appreciate where you are coming from. This certainly has been a big issue with our family only the other way around. We were in the "truth" and not allowed to talk to my brother-in-law whom we were very close to, because he was disfellowshipped. Parties and plans were made without him included. This hurt my husband (it was his brother) very much. Finally he, my husband, said enough was enough and started to associate with him again. It is like Cal said on another thread, that is what the Org does best, separate us from family and God's grace.

Personally, if I may be frank, it seems that there may be other issues in your marriage. I just can not imagine a wife treating a husband in that way. It is not something I would have ever done as a witness. But personalities differ and circumstances too. Love for a marriage mate is a strong bond. It shouldn't be so easily broken. No religion can tell me that I can't spend a certain day with my husband.

I feel so sad for you. I wish I had the answers. Just know that all of us here are on your side and will show you all the support and love you deserve at this time.

Sophia
