Happy, Happy... start of a new year!
... By choice, another year without you, I am sure, but not another year without me thinking, praying, caring about you deep in my mind and heart and hoping one day you will change your minds.
Just remember, like the song here that you are listening to...it is an insightful song about having 'feelings' for others who are suffering.
Title : '“God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes ‘Cause then you really might know what it’s like to have to choose, Then you really might know what it’s like" ...
I wouldn't want you to know the pain I have gone through, being separated from your flesh and blood....my precious babies, boys, and young men. It is ten times worse, then what you had to grow up with, when it is a separation from your child. All you can do at this age is imagine losing your two arms, your two legs...and your hair all at once and then try to live that way for 10 years....I am sure it would be very difficult for you as a young person. This imagined likeness for you, is the closest thing I can help you imagine or help you put yourself in my shoes to show you a little bit.
I pray that you will marry women who will respect you, and who you will truly love enough to never put her in the position to have to choose. Someone you will NEVER do to them...what your father did to me.... where I had to choose the path to do what was right for BOTH of us, and live a righteous and selfless life and then him punishing me for it.
Take care today ...and this NEW year and learn to do more good in this world... so that you do not cause pain to others...as you hear in the words of this song.
This NEW year is the opportunity for YOU to do MORE greatness in this world.
(If that includes visiting or calling me...that would be nothing short of a miracle because God will have had to softened your heart and that means we all will be truly blessed.)
Until then, have an awesome Holiday and think about who you are going to create for yourself, this new 2014 year.
I have faith in you that you will continue to be brave, valiant and strong and will make this new year a bright and successful year for yourself and for all those whose lives you will touch.
