So they’re spying … big deal!
Lately, that’s all we hear about on the news, how the US is spying on almost everyone on earth, even its closest allies. Well to reassure everyone, the USA just like any other country is also spying on its own people. In other words, they are employing the “equal spying opportunity” and that is something anyone spied on should feel proud of and should take advantage of.
But I am still not happy about that for one main reason. A few days ago I got the flu, and I was shivering in my bed with a high fever. I couldn’t even make it to the kitchen to prepare myself a soup or even get my own medication. Did they check up on me? No. Did they send me any medication? No. Did they at least send me a “get well soon, card”. No, Nothing. I got nothing from anyone. Yet we both know that they know I was sick.
That same night, my one year old son started crying in the middle of the night, in his own crib. I felt helpless towards him. I wanted to go pick him up, but I couldn’t for two reasons, I was extremely sick, and I didn’t want to spread my virus or whatever I had on to my son; but I expected uncle Sam who spends sleepless nights watching us and over us to at least send in a Nanny to soothe my child back into sleep. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen either.
Now tell me, am I asking for too much here? Isn’t that why they are spying on us? Isn’t it to provide us care when we need it the most?
I am a bit disappointed to be honest with you, but I will keep on giving them another chance since I have no other option. With that being said, I could really use a hand with the laundry. If only someone was listening closely …
Ever since we learned how to talk, it was imperative to tell people how old we were, “I am Two”, “I am three and a half”. Of course, when children say it, it sounds so cute. As we get older, we start measuring things in the same exact way we did as children, using years, days and months; which seems the only normal way of doing things.
We make this much money a year, we will retire at this age or in this many years. All seemed going smoothly until we discovered that animal years are different from that of a human. For instance, a 14 years old dog is considered to be like an 82 years old man in human years. So when we look at a dog that is 14 years old, he might be thinking “This human is more like a dinosaur, he is at least 200-250 years old”, right?
Now the fun part begins. I think by now you might have an idea of what I am proposing. Let us compare our human years to the years in heaven. Are they the same? Are they different? Well, what if they’re different. What if one day in heaven is equivalent to one year on earth? What if one day equates to 100 or a million years?
Now here’s where the scary thought really is. What if God has a day off?
If our time here on earth is relatively equal to heaven’s time, then we risk an entire 24 hour without any divine interference due to God’s day off. Think globally now! Galaxies, planets etc… Everything is hanging by a thread.
If our time here on earth is vastly different from heaven’s time, then what? If our earthly 100 years equate to one day, and that happens to be the day God decided to have a day off, then what? Then the fun begins. Do you really want to be around on God’s day off?
You would pray to God, but he’s not listening because it’s his day off. Try praying in a 100 years when he’s available.
P.S: I am not saying that God has a day off. I am not trying to insult anyone, but I’m simply trying to put things in perspective. Be grateful to what you have.

2010 was a new beginning… preparations, marriage and festive occasions…
2011 was the year of vacations… Here are the top 10 reasons we loved 2011:
4- In July 2011, we planned a New York Trip with our friends. We first went to Philadelphia then took the bus and spent a few days in New York city. We went to Broadway and saw “The Addams Family” and got Brook Shields autograph.
5- In August 2011, my mother came to visit during the month of Ramadan. Her vacation was a breath of fresh air for us. We enjoyed her company.
6- In December 2011, we planned a Florida trip to visit my husbands uncle and enjoy what Florida got to offer. We went to St. Augustine, the oldest city and port in the US. We then headed to Orlando and experienced the magical Magic Kingdom and Epcot.
7- Aside from vacations, 2011 gave us the opportunity to bond and get to know each other more and more.
8- Along with bonding, in 2011 we maintained our health. We tried to eat right and exercise.
9- In 2011 bonding and health were also accompanied by intellectual stimuli. We took care of our mental wellness. We inaugurated www.cognitivedimension.wordpress.com to keep the ideas flowing and discussions happening.
10- In addition to the vacations, bonding, physical and mental health we got each other. And that is the greatest reason to love 2011.
