I thought we had it hard

I used to think being Mormon was difficult. As a young woman the rules for dress, dating, music, movies and entertainment seemed stifling. The popular ’80′s song with the line, ” You don’t smoke, you don’t drink, what do ya do?” was a very common question I had to answer at school. As I have matured, I have changed my mind. I have friends from lots of different religions that I think are much harder than being Mormon. Some examples are below:

1. Seventh-Day Adventists are strict vegetarians. They also don’t dance. (I love meat and dancing.)

2. Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t celebrate birthdays or any secular holidays. No Christmas, Thanksgiving, Fourth of July, even Easter is at a different time of the year, with no egg hunts. (I love parties and holidays.)
