    Kathy: January 06, 2024

    I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the only One I know who will always completely love me!! In addition, The only earthly beings who have ever loved me unconditionally, were my beloved dogs, Heidi and Finnegan. Heidi was my very first dog. She was a German Shepherd. I rescued her from an animal shelter. The very next day, she rescued me!! My ex-husband was furious that I had adopted Heidi, and he took his anger out on me by choking me. Heidi helped me get away from him, and she protected me with her life. I am alive today, because of her love!! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful meaning of love from your language! I wish more people could learn from your beliefs and traditions!!

    I have a heritage of Cherokee, my great grandmother was a full blooded Indian, I’ve decided to look into it including the language because i want to learn about my heritage and maybe even be apart of it, so learning this just makes me look at love and the words “i love you” in a whole new way because to them it isn’t a simple “i love you” it has a lot of meaning behind it and now i know how much my grandmother must’ve loved her family.
