Not Just Any Thunder Storm As the sun melted into the distance horizon I saw the thickening of the ominous clouds overhead The rain began to pelt the roof of my old house but nestled in my canopy bed under all my covers I felt safe Flashes of lightening and rumbles of thunder shook the house and tears began to roll down my cheeks This was not just any thunderstorm it was a moment in my life when I struggled to keep my faith and hope I spotted my mothers face eyes ringed with smudged mascara I peered up at her and knew something was wrong Its dad and me she began We have decided to separate for a while until we can work things out But you are not getting a divorce are you I quickly asked She shook her head but I knew things would never be the same Soon after my dad and I packed our bags and moved to Jeddah Saudi Arabia He tried so hard to be strong but I could see he was feeling a lot of pain He read me books to try to help me fall asleep at night I remember one was about a single dad and how things around the house were different without a mom He even tried unsuccessfully to put my hair up in a non- bumpy ponytail My dad helped me to develop my faith and without this I do not think I could have made it through this difficult time in my life He taught me Allahs Prayer and we recited it together every night But as much as he tried he was not my mother My life before the separation was carefree and I was so content The memories of the five us vacationing in Florida or anywhere else in the world smiling laughing and spending time as a family- are painful
