My time with Y, Mom and H was coming to an end. It felt very bitter sweet to me. I was so happy that they were able to come, but I didn’t want to say goodbye.
We drove around a little bit more trying to find a few specialty shops that I don’t get the chance to go to on my own.
We stopped at a bakery looking for sweets, but it wasn’t exactly that kind of bakery. However, I did end up getting chamomile tea, rose tea and a ginger green tea.
We eventually found a sweets shop similar to the one that I wrote about in a past post. This time Y snapped some pictures so that I could show you how elaborate and fantastic these stores are.
This shop had such beautiful dishes of arranged chocolates for every occasion. I feel like they are so unique and not something that you would find in the USA (especially not for a reasonable price).
I ended up getting two plates. One had sweets similar to the dish that I got from the place around the corner and the other was various types of baklava. I’ve sampled some of the different kinds so far and they are all perfect.
When we arrived back at my apartment, H helped me bring all of my things inside. After we finished I followed her back out to the car to say goodbye. I hugged H, hugged and kissed Mom and hugged Y.
H sent me a message later on saying that she wished they could have brought me with them.
Things are not always easy, but that is life. I have patience in this situation because I know that God is with me. I can say truly and honestly that this is what I want and that Y is worth it. So far I have felt God’s blessings all around me and because of that I feel happy and at peace.
Our situation right now is not a worst case scenario. God has blessed us with so many things. I never imagined that I would be here already and that I would have spent time with Y and part of his family here in KSA. That itself is such a fantastic thing.
Thank God in every situation.
