I thought that there was nothing worse than being a Non-Mormon in Utah. I now know that is not true....there is something worse.
Being a FLDS woman in Utah.
I just returned from my local grocery store, where I saw a woman and her four kids. Based on their attire I figured out that they were FLDS. She and her children were all wearing long dresses and had tall hair and braids.
I felt really bad for her because she looked scared to death. Probably because everyone in the store was staring at her and her family and whispering. I said Hello to her as she walked by and tried to meet her gaze but she immediately looked away.
I wanted to hug her and tell her....that I understand and I don't fit in here either. I wanted to give her my phone number and tell her to join my Mommies Group. And I wanted to tell the cashier and her bag boy to mind their own business and stop talking about her. Let her be!
Utah is a tough place for me to live....but it could be worse.
I could be her.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
