a fulfilment of a future dream...

In my life, i have experienced all possible situation to be in, i had 2 daughters out of wedlock, one day i found myself crying to God, begging Him to change my tears to joy, to send me someone to share life with and would love me for what i am, have been, but most of all, someone who would love my daughters as his own, and, inspite of all my faults, shortcomings..He heard me.I was loved by a very wonderful man, although faced with difficulties, we survived. I have learned that no matter how hard life is, He will never forsake us. We learn from all the different problems, it makes us stronger. My husband died at a very young age of 39, due to complications of his kidney's, hypertension and heart problem. Through his illness, i really do not know how i pulled thru without God's love. I never questioned why, i just kept praying not to make him suffer too much, we were hard-up, but God sends us people to help us and we survived. My youngest then was 16 years old, so it was not really that difficult to move on. My guardian was Jesus, Mama Mary and my Father. After so many years, who would have thought that i will be given a chance to go to U>S>A>, i am being petitioned by my daughter who is in New York. You know i have this dream, someday i know i will meet a person who will enjoy my company and see the good side in me, then, we will buy a property wherein we could build apartments to generate monthly income that i can leave for my children and grandchildren for their future. Maybe, after all my sacrifices in life, i pray that God gives me the fulfillment of my dreams.
Thank you very much for reading my request, and i pray that all of you have your requests granted.
