I took my best friend to the airport this morning. She was going to Japan for her fathers "homecoming". It has been one year since is death. In the Japanese culture they celebrate the one year and I think every year after their death. It is a rememberance thing but I think the first year is the most important.
She called from the airport because the travel agent booked her flight for the wrong MONTH. She was stuck at the airport with plans for her fathers special event and no way to get to Japan. She was in tears. My friend NEVER cires. I have not seen her cry but she told me that she was in tears and did not know what to do.
The flight attendant was able to help her by selling her a buddy pass for $800.

Enemy to my own culture II

Just recently my aunt (hula teacher) graduated her first class of students. She has always had a class that she was grooming and we always started and never finished. I hated it. It was like a dog and pony show. I felt like I had to learn so many things....stop, and start all over again. I got so tired of it. It was like a dog chasing his tail. Well, she finally followed through and graduated a group of students that started in her school 4 years after I did. Now they can become hula teachers.
Am I sad or bitter? NO. More power to them.

Who was Mary Magdalene
Was she the prostitute that had stones thrown at her or was she someone of greater significance? Was she the wife of Jesus of Nazareth? References in the bible show record of Mary Magdalene at important scenes and times of Jesusâ€™ life. Mark, Matthew and John have recorded Mary Magdalene to be present during the crucifixion, after the crucifixion, and at the resurrection.
Mary would visit his tomb everyday and one day she had noticed the stone rolled away.
John 20:18: Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord," and that He had said these things to her.
I always wondered WHY Jesusâ€™ first appearance before his resurrection was to Mary Magdalene. If Jesus was born of man, of flesh and blood than he would also be able to fall in love and be married. As Christians are we not told to procreate and replenish the earth? Why is it that it would be different for Jesus? If this law of man and woman being the only union why is it that Jesus was not a part of this sacred union?
