Hello, my name is Frank Moses. My life has been extraordinarily exciting. It has been filled with war, peace, life struggles, success, joy and sorrow. I am a Canadian in my early sixties - I live in Windsor, Ontario and am still enjoying a professional career. I am a happy, social and active person who supports charities and has three amazing daughters. I enjoy family life, nature, play theater, country music, travelling, and attending/watching Hockey games and Soccer matches. I decided to write Cactus, this real story of my family life which has not ended yet but that has changed forever since my wife, my angel bird, is gone and has flown to the secrete skies. This book, Cactus, is as much about her loss as it is about me.

Here's a little

My real family life story full of countless struggles, hardships, hope and triumph.

Cactus by Frank Moses
“This beautiful mystery woman had a very white complexion and wore her blond, silky hair tied back from her face in a braid, which she had tucked under her fur coat. As she got closer, I could see that her facial features were not detailed in the way of an earthly human face. She had beautiful, small eyes and a very small nose with a tip that somehow looked unfinished. It was the same with her tiny mouth, something about the corners looked unfinished as well.

I was frozen and I did not know what to do. Honestly, my mind stopped functioning and seemed to travel far away, wandering over my head in search of an explanation or an answer for this apparition. And then this beautiful mystery woman arrived in front of me and inexplicably hugged me very tight, with unusual passion for a stranger.

With what felt like the deepest, genuine love, the beautiful mystery woman placed her forehead very tightly against the right side of my neck and then she raised her head until her warm right cheek was t

Cactus by Frank Moses
“Mysterious forces steer people to meet and love another soul. In my case, it was not because I chose Mona, my wife; rather, it was because fate was stronger than me, and God always manages our lives to the better. While I was busy trying to build my life and my career, my angel bird was on a noble mission to affect my life through great sacrifices of her own.

The culture I was born in respects the sanctity of women and the value of family life. I was raised in a female-dominated environment. I had a strong grandmother, a resilient mother and five sisters. I was raised to value loyalty and faithful commitment to one woman at a time.

Following the principles of my faith, during my teenage youth, I did not know any woman physically or get involved in any serious relationships. Yes, during my university years, I met my angel sweetheart, but I treated her with respect and behaved in the way I was taught. My intentions toward her were good and I made them clear to her. I treated her as an eq

“One beautiful day, a day with a clear sky and soft sun rays shining about to warm the hearts of both young and old, my special bird released one of its colourful, soft, feathers. The feather brushed my face and made my heart start beating hard, racing with a rhythm only this special bird could hear and understand. Despite the fact that I am not a bird, the pull of our destiny was strong and it forced this special bird to land and build a nest on me … a Cactus tree.”
Frank Moses, Cactus: Life Story and Fate, With an Unexpected Twist

“To say the least, my life has been a fine line between wonderful and unfair and hard. But we get stronger in the hard days and years. I was weak but I learned. I suffered, was insulted and faced a huge amount of sadness. The more my family was hurt, the more we became stronger. We got used to the suffering as we were sold from one country to another.

Wow, how many painful years we faced; but I am not sorry for the past and not afraid of what’s coming. The cruel years taught me strength. We walk on the meadows of pain and fire, and when we get to the other side, the honey will taste bitter like a Cactus.

Suffering will not fill our days. We will not close our dream book. We will not break down. We will not accept to live even one dark day. To live, we will give and bend, even with pain under our wings.”
Frank Moses, Cactus: Life Story and Fate, With an Unexpected Twist

“In the mist of the heavy shelling and bombing, my terrified mother worried for the safety of her newborn. She did not know what to do; she worried that if one of the bombs fell on the camp, they would all die, and while she was worried about the life of her daughters and herself, she was more worried about her fragile, newborn baby boy. She wanted him to live and survive this savage war.

Without any logical thinking, during the heavy shelling on the second night of the war, my mother fed me well and decided to protect me the only way she knew how. She put me in a straw bassinet and then she wrapped and covered it with a few blankets and placed it in a low, sandy spot under a heavy bush in the middle distance between the camp structure and the beach of the Mediterranean Sea. She was frantic, shivering and crying as she did this. She felt like burying her own child alive.

But while she was torn, at the same time she was full of hope that I would have a better chance to survive the night if I was not inside the camp. She was indescribably scared, and continuously prayed to God to sacrifice her life instead of mine.

My mother left me outside under the gloomy sky for the entire night. When the navy shelling stopped in the next dawn, she ran, shivering to check on me. Filled with horror and guilt, slowly she uncovered my face. I opened my eyes and looked into her face, recognizing her immediately. Then I started crying for milk.

Nana screamed and cried from happiness that I was alive, scaring me more and more. Then, she pulled me out of the bassinet and hugged me hard to her chest, kissing me nonstop.”

Her left arm held me tight around my waist, while her right arm was over my left shoulder, squeezing me from behind my neck. She did not say ‘hi’ or any word; she just kept holding me tight that I started to feel her body heat.”
