MashaAllah / God Bless


She's beautiful.
Everyday she learns something new.

One day we'll travel to Libya together - I'll take her to her Grandfather, the dear old Baba Salem's grave, I pray for him and still love him like my own father, whatever happened with his son.

We'll travel a lot together - Finland to meet Santa Claus, Euro Disney, and if she loves the ballet like her mother does, and dances it as well as her mother did (until I became too fat for ballet) we'll go to Russia together.

I won't bother her with too much religion.
She's too young for that.

I'll teach her values - to ba a good girl with values, with love in her heart, with wisdom in her head, with compassion in her speech.
That's a good Muslimah. That's a good Christian girl. That's a good Jewess, even. A good whatever.
Goodness transcends religious denomination.

you're gonna need a passport that has enough room for all the visas.. lol

what if Amina grows up watching James Bond movies and starts liking guns and bombs and explosions and assasinations.. would you consider taking her to Iraqi? :P

I couldn't agree more with what you said about our being forced to be happy during Eid, Xmas and the new year.. so much so that it depresses us.. however, I sincerely and whole-heartedly wish you and little Aminah a wonderful new year.. full of happiness and joy and a bit of dancing too.. :)

Kind Regards

Libeeya, don't you think Aminah has fantastic Arabic eyes? They're so dark and mesmerising.
