Catherine is my beloved friend. Our friendship blossomed when we both came to Oman in 2008. We found comfort and love from each other. Since then, I considered her like my very own sister.
A very good news came to her life when Catherine’s application to Canada was approved by the Canadian Embassy in Abu Dhabi last April 2014. Her dream to go to Canada and become an immigrant finally came true.
Although she was extremely happy but we can’t deny the reality that we all felt sad for her to go.
You see, through the years we were able to establish a very good relationship with other people and we call our group as SUPERFRIENDS – like super heroes that will help you in times of trouble, like super family when you need comfort and love, like superwoman and superman that can do the impossible things possible. These special friends were our families here in Oman. They were there when you needed them the most.
Fours days before Cath’s flight, we organized a farewell dinner for her at a Turkish Restaurant in North Al Hail near Markaz Al Bahja Mall.
It was a very joyful dinner while reminiscing the past years of our life together in Oman including our escapades, struggles, joyful moments, and personal issues.
On my facebook account I created an album for Cath with the message that goes:
We love you so much Catherine. Our memories will be treasured for life. You are a friend worth keeping and we are a family worth treasuring. Until we see each other again. May the Lord pour out His wonderful blessings to you as you embark on your new life in Canada. Our thoughts are with you wherever you go.
We all know that our life in the Oman will not be forever. Someday we will all leave this country but what is most important that we are able to have wonderful memories that we will treasure forever.
Hope you like this post. Catch you again soon!
Lots of Love,
Riah – the lady behind Happy Baker Delights 🙂
