I talked with my brother today telling him this exact thing and he agreed with me. I continued with, “All I can say is that it looks like the last days as written and we should make sure we are right with God and our children are also.”
I did find my Iraqi girlfriends finally. I don’t know who was happier. Lida is still in California and Josie still here in Oklahoma. Lida said she will come to Oklahoma and we can visit, reminisce, hug and possibly cry with happiness. I cannot wait to see them after about twenty eight years. I can’t believe I allowed myself to lose contact with them.
I have always said such things as, “I hate to lose people,” and “I need to find or reconnect with so and so,” and since I now have time to explore my reasoning’s and since writing my very therapeutic book, I realize that it is because I was taken away from people I loved dearly; my aunt’s, uncle, cousins, grandparents and friends. Not only that, but my father was taken from me when I was just seven. I believe this is why I have many friends that I love and some that have been in my heart for many, many years. Some may not even know why they are in my heart and I can’t really explain why some have been privileged enough for that position either; nevertheless they are there and I have never heard any objections.
Someone made a comment about how much I must have loved my mother and another said something about how I love as a child and still another couldn’t understand the amount of love that I must have to give. Jesus said, “And now these three remain; faith, hope and love.” “But the greatest of these, is love.”
Let’s all try to love one another.
