Operation Fake It is a go. Some of you wanted an update. I am not exactly sure how long it has been since we've started acting like I, my husband, and child believe. We now go to church once a year for Christmas service. I would actually go for Easter, but for some reason that is not expected.
It is working as expected. We have been doing this at least a year, maybe two. For a while now we have been getting weekly money from my parents. We have enough money to live on, but they want us eating well and having more money for clothes. They turned some of their land into investment property for me. We will now be getting at least one if not two of their houses plus a few hundred thousand in the will.
On the flip side, my child thinks that when people die they go up in the sky to God. My kid is young though, and in some ways I think believing something comforting like this when people die may be nice to have in childhood. It bothers me a little, but not that much really. I have said, "Yes, that is what some people believe."
This is the update for the people that wanted it.
