...I'm gonna be a Grandma again today!! My beautiful daughter is finally in labor with her 1st child, a baby boy!! I'm overwhelmed and very emotional about it, so I'm glad her wonderful hubby is there at her side!! I'm getting ready to head out to St. Joe's in a moment, but wanted to stop in and say hi to my new friends here, and share this fabulous news!!
...I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who has invited me to discussions and groups so enthusiastically. It's all kind of new to me, atheism, and I'm learning so much from this site, but I'm doing it in my own time. It was the hardest thing I ever did, renouncing the lie. Don't get me wrong, I don't regret it for a minute, but I'm sure quite a few of you still struggle with the guilt that's been pounded into you your whole life, just like me. It's difficult to let it go!! Still have a long way to go as far as getting 'deprogrammed' lol. Bear with me though!! I'm feel so lucky now to not be alone anymore, and grateful to be able to say THERE IS NO GOD(S) without the usual angry backlash, pity, or urgent need of the religious nuts to 'save me'.
...it is for that freedom, to express it out loud and be understood, that I'll treasure eternally.
...thank you all.
