When my mother told my father that she was pregnant with their third child, Monica Dale Staples, he told her that she just had a bad cold. I did come into the world with bronchial problems and I have had them all my life.
Was my father rejecting me, Monica Dale Staples, even before I was born? Did fear, anxiety, and uncertainty play more a part in this script then rejection?
My very first crush was in elementary school. He was it. I thought he was the most divine human being on this earth. But what did I know in elementary since he did not even know my name much less that I was even on this planet.
My first true love came when I was nine. I accepted Christ as my personal Savior. During this time, several tragic events happened in my life.
Through these events, I began to search what is “Love” and who is “Love”. At this time, church had become a part of my mother’s and my life as we searched for the Lord’s heartbeat.
