Wasn't fun ....

Last Sunday we went to our relative’s house, I was sooo excited because I didn’t see them since a year and a half, yes, year and half.!!!
Anyway, that day was like (eed) festivity, I wore my best clothes & got ready before my family (I told you I was so excited!).
We persuaded my grandma to come with us, she kept praying all way long.
Previously, women used to talk about the kids, the housework, fashion & shopping. While men talk about politic subjects, their work & cars. I get bored with both. However, that was in the past, now men & women talk about the bad situation, their bad scary experiences& their losses.
All the talk was about who was killed & who was abducted …….
When the host said listen to this story about D. family, one of the guests said:
-oh, my God.
-Do you know this story?
- No.
-why did you say oh my god? It could be something good.
- I don’t know.
That was the only funny story we laughed at.
You can see the people now, expect bad things all the time, & they became pessimist.
When I reached home, I said to my grandpa, now I know every one who was killed & abducted.
Moreover, I said to my mom, that staying home is more fun.
However, it’s important to see people, even if the talk was prosaic (so baffler)!
Yesterday we went to another relative’s house, they have a graduation occasion. H. (the daughter who graduated) became a pharmacist. I wish that her father were still a live, to share her her success & happiness. The terrorists murdered her father few months ago.(I know I know you want to hear the whole story ).
My mom will write about that…...
Keep waiting her post…

I pray everday that things will get better in Iraq and in Afghanistan. I can only imagine what it must be like to live in that kind of danger. I imagine you don't know if the soldiers or terrorists are worse. Just keep your head up and be careful. And we will keep praying for you.

"Hope for the best, but expect the worst" was what a friend told me years ago. I dont know why i kept that in mind, forgetting almost everything else.

Hello Sunshine - I am enjoying reading your blog and learning about your life. I live in the United States and we hope so much that your lives will get better now that Sadaam Hussein is gone. I know that your life is still very hard now. I hope that gets better very soon. Do you know who Helen Keller was? She was a woman who was blind and deaf from childhood and had a very difficult life and always had a difficult life, although not in the same way yours is!. She once said: "Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it". I hope you and your family continue to overcome the difficulties you have to live with now. Keep writing too and do not worry about mistakes (like "shear" for "share"). No one can learn without mistakes! Do you mind if we, kindly of course, correct you if that happens again? I hope this was a good day for you!
