Is that macrame Sunshine? I used to do that when I was young. It was all the rage around here at one time. I don't see much of it here anymore. Is that an art in your country?

I found your blog through Mama's... Which I found through Iraq blog count..

I am an adamant reader of Najma's blog, she too is one of my best friends in Iraq. I find her funny, hopefull helpfull and determined.

I just read your blog from beggining to end and read about your eye problems and your determination to succeed despite them. That is inspiring. Your mother is a truely committed mother like very few you would find here in possibly the most free land of all, Perth, Western Australia.

You are like no girl of your age I have ever met or even heard of. So committed and dedicated to your family and studies. Your will is what Iraq needs for its future, you are a very very beautiful girl in spirit, and your respect for other peoples traditions is also amazing.

Like the others your english surprised me, though I could tell your little secret before you wrote about it (because, although you use the correct words for most things, they are not the COMMON words for all of these, and most people [including me] don't even know the meanings of some of these words!)

I think the fact that you teach other people with the skills you have acquired is beautiful and highly selfless. Your appreciation for your readers is also great, and the thought you put into what you will write shows an understanding of what others want to hear, as well as what you need to say.

I will e-mail you very soon, so we can chat like you have with Canuck, I worked with Canuck trying to get Khalid released. I think that you should try harder to get along with your little sister (I have a little sister who is 6 years younger than me), and when I was your age she used to anger me when she did the opposite to what I wanted too!

But family is very important, and do not argue about getting your way, try to find a reasonable way so that she will WANT to do the same as what you want, a compromise.

Teaching these skills to someone so young will put them ahead in life like the skills your mother taught and made available to you.

Your blog is wonderful, and you haven't been hit by 'trolls' which is great. If they ever do find your page and insult you as they do some others, don't take the negative comments to heart. An open and loving person like you is open to hurt, but would always struggle on, I like this. It is just like me.

Your macrame and your soap designs are talented and beautiful. Your relationship with your father- well my parents broke up when I was 10 years old. Before this point I had been very close to my dad, and so much like him. Since then our relationship suffered, to the point at one stage where I didn't want to go see him sometimes.

I realised that this was not good, and that I really really really love my dad. He really really loves me to and would do anything if I needed it, though he didn't ask me if I needed things.

It is probably the same with your dad, he cares but because of the way many men in the world treat other men, it is hard for grown men to show how much they care, so it is up to YOU to show him how much you care.

Your post about women in Iraq is great, and your comments about why Oprah chose such a silly example can be explained.. the companies that play Oprah's shows wish to display things in Iraq as being bad compared to America, so that American's wont believe they are doing the wrong thing by occupying Iraq. Personally I don't think they should have invaded, and I think they need to leave ASAP, but that is not the discussion.

Try get closer to your father, but what if oneday he didn't return home(god willing it will not happen), you would surely wish you had been closer.

My heart, thoughts and prayers are for your safe upbringing, you will be a star in the eyes of the entire world one day. WE NEED YOU(writer), as much as YOU NEED US(readers).

Love & Peace to you.

I like your curtain alot. It reminds me of the macrame that I used to make when I was younger. If you made it, you did a great job.

I found your blog site just by hitting the next blog button, surfing. It is the one of the first sites that I found interesting and learned something. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
