…and to all a goodnight

All good things must come to an end and it has come time to say goodbye to our California adventure and all of our sweet cousins out here.

IMG_1154 3Tonight was a special time for us as we sat at a long table with twenty-two of our closest relatives and had sweet communion with delicious Armenian food, life testimonies, singing and prayers. My dad’s only living sibling, Uncle Nap, was there and said a beautiful prayer for us. I looked down the long table and saw everyone with head bowed in prayer and holding each other’s hand in agreement and felt a deep sense of pride. Pride in my heritage and all these beautiful people who share a portion of my DNA and very proud that all of these people had traveled so far on those terrible Los Angeles freeway’s in all the traffic to have a meal with my sister and me.

The Bible says in Matthew 18: 18-20 “Take this most seriously: A yes on earth is yes in heaven; a no on earth is no in heaven. What you say to one another is eternal. I mean this. When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.”

I know that all of our relatives who have gone on before us, and there was a representative of every Mushegan sibling there tonight, were our “Cloud of Witnesses” and there might have been a little shouting going on in heaven as we prayed. I have to say that during the wild ride in and out of lanes from one side of the freeway to the other I called on those prayers to get us safely back to the room, now I have to start praying that the angels in heaven hold our airplane in the air as we start our journey home in the morning, so good night my friend, thanks for stopping by!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
