You may know the story of the old man who had two sons long ago.
The sons decided that they wanted their inheritance right away so the father divided his property between them. One son stayed at home and worked to increase his property and help his father.
The other son went far away and wasted his money on many things and did not find ways to increase it. After years passed he had no money and only the clothes on his back. So, he came home to his family.
The father welcomed his son who had been lost to him. He cried tears of joy, found new clothes for the boy and had the fat calf killed for a big feast to welcome his son home.
The son who had stayed home and worked hard all those years felt badly. There was no feast for him. But, his brother who had gambled and wasted his inheritance was given a big feast.
The father explained that he still loved the boy who had been gone and must welcome him the same as he would any son who had been missing. Even though that son had done bad things and not visited home, he was still family and still loved.
This ancient story reminds me of My EnglishClub and our friends who may leave here for a long time. We cannot know what they must do in their lives. They could have a very good reason for leaving for a while. It is not for us to say if it is a good reason or not, because we live a different lives from them.
All we can say is that we still love our friends and we will welcome them back after they are able to see us again. I was gone for much of the time for more than a year, but my friends have been warm in their welcome to me.
It is easy to return here - IF YOU DO NOT - delete your account
If you are very busy, sad or angry, it may be good to stay away from our club for a while.
Your friends will still love you , because they care about your happiness.
If you delete your account you are deleting your friends. I feel terrible when I am deleted.
You are also deleting all the messages and good history here.
Take a vacation from this club if you must. Just please, please, do not delete your account.
Your account will be safe for a long time so you can come back when your life improves. If you love this club and the people here, they will love you back when you return.
Deleting your account causes hurt to your friends. They miss you and grieve over your loss as if a friend has died. If you are angry at one person you shouldn’t hurt the ones who care about you. Just get your life together again and return.
I was gone and now I am very happy to be back with my friends. This place is more like a family to me and I love to see how everyone grows and improves with time.
I love you friends,
