Conversations With My Father Part III

Dad: No one can love you like your parents... a parents love is unconditional... they will love you no matter what you do. Ya3ni hani ana... ta7maltek kteer.

Me: You never know dad... they are just doctors at the end of the day... anything is possible.

Dad: What's wrong?
Me: Bad day. I don't get what's the point of anything... it all seems so pointless.
Dad: It's ok habibti... sometimes a person feels that way... bs 2etzakari allah w allah betzakarek.
Me: Dad, I don't know if you've noticed, but God doesn't give a shit about us!
Dad: Lah lah lah ya 7abibiti... Allah ma 7atna 3ala hal 2ard 7ata yensana
