My birthday .....

I will be 14 on 29\1; I will celebrate my birthday in Baghdad,
Last year was the second time that I couldn't celebrate my birthday because of the unstable situations, my friends in school couldn't come,,
I invited two of my relatives , they are my best friends too( M , & B)& their house is very close to ours , but they couldn't come !!!! they had home inspection ,what a bad luck, I remember I was very upset, in that day, I was watching TV & I saw the daily shows, I was very happy when I saw that Romeo & Juliet is the next movie, & guess what I couldn't watch it, the electricity was OFF as usual.
My mom made a cake & we watched Oprah, my favorite show, I was hoping that the coming birthday would be better & I can celebrate it…
Unfortunately I won't celebrate this birthday with my friends , I will go to Baghdad on 29 / 1 , my mom will have a surgery ( please pray that she will be ok) … but I will celebrate my birthday with my grandparents.
I used to wonder in every birthday, "What did I do this year that I am proud of? What did I achieve? & I think that this birthday I will have so many things to mention…………,
last year when I blow the candles , my wish was to do something special, specially for my age ,I think my blog is my wish , I will wish sooooo many things this birthday, I am so blessed & thankful , to have you my dear readers& friends………
Fourteen years old Sunshine

Note , I will be so busy in this holiday ,I am truly sorry , I might set for awhile , to take care of my sister & brother till my mom's recovery , but I will try to write for you , I have so many things to write about …..
Keep waiting

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAREST SUNSHINE!! I had planned to wait until 1/29/2006 to send my best wishes to you but since you will not be home I want to send you my best wishes.

I hope your mother's surgery will go well and be successful.

Please convey my feelings to your grand parents. I have read many articles written by your mother and your aunt Rose and loved them all, eventhough they sometimes make me cry. To rear such intelligent and caring daughters makes me believe your grandparents are wonderful and caring parents.

Again, Happy Birthday and many more to come.

I am so glad to see you post again!! I hope you have a very Happy Birthday this year even though you will be in Baghdad. I suspect you have a whole lot to be proud of on your birthday. And, I agree that this is such a wonderful tradition!!

Speaking of needing some sunshine!! I live in the state of Washington. We are called the rainy state and this year the state is earning its name. It has rained everyday for over 30 days and the water continues to fall out of the sky. But today I saw sunshine...and I thank you!!

Yes, I will pray for your mom to have a successful surgery and a fast recover. You and your family please take care and stay safe.

I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating your birthday with your grandparents. I think that you have many things to be proud of and you will acomplish many more things that you can be proud of this year.
Give your mom my best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Happy Birthday Sunshine! May this be a year of health, happiness and peace for you and all of your family...and all of your country, as well. We will keep your Mother in our thoughts and prayers. Take care and try to have some fun on your special day!

*\o/* Happy Birthday, Sunshine! *\0/*

I will be holding your mom in my thoughts as she prepares for & recovers from her surgery.

Be safe.

Happy Birthday, Sunshine. May this be a happier year for you - and you are perhaps the most mature 14 year old I've ever known, I wish I was as smart and wise as you at 14.

I'll keep your Mom in my prayers and hope she recovers very quickly. She's a wonderful mom and you're lucky to have her (and she you).

Hello from Houston Sunshine. I went to your mother's blog first since it is in my "favorites" and from there I can go to your site. I was so concerned seeing that your Mom has not written since December.
Now I know why from your Blog. Please know and tell your Mom that we are all thinking of her and hoping for a successful surgery.
And now you, dear lady, are celebrating a wonderful, fourteenth birthday. What a wonderful time of life... old enough to be treated almost like an adult when you want to be and young enough to be treated and loved like a dear child when you want to be....
We are all wishing you a joyful birthday and a wonderful year ahead.
Love from us all, Wade in Houston

Dearest Sunshine. Today is finally the day you reach 14 years of age. I want to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and a future life of success. 60 years ago next month, I reached the age of 14. Times were difficult back then. We were still recovering from what was known as the "depression". Most people were living in poverty. I was not near as intelligent as you are, back then, but I have enjoyed a life of success. Happy Birthday and may many follow.

My further hope is that Aunt Rose's wishes for next year come true. It's wonderful to see a note fom her.

Happy Birthday to you Sunshine! I hope that you enjoyed your birthday party with your grandparents in Baghdad, and I hope that your Mom's surgery went well :) Hey, my birthday is tomorrow and I'm also going to celebrate it with my grandparents cuz Mom is out of the country! What a nice coincedence!

It's good to see you back to blogging. Oh, in case you haven't checked my blog lately, I have changed my blog's title and removed my name. Would you please udpate the link in your blog and put "Me" instead of my name? :) Take care...

Happy belated birthday, Sunshine. I hope your mother's surgery was a success. January 29th is my birthday too! I'm just a little bit older than you though, as I turned 46. But since I plan on living to be 98, I'm not middle aged yet!!! ;)

Hi Sunshine!!!!!HAPPY BIRTHDAY! YOU ARE so special. Hope you enjoyed your special day with your Grandparents. You should be PROUD of your blog it gives us (the Americans) an idea of how it is for you and your country. Hopefully the electricity situation will be better soon. Let us know how your Mom is, we will pray for her. Happy Birthday, Sunshine! Anna's Mom

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Sunshine!!! (a bit late) I hope your Mom is doing well. :D

I understand your dissappointment and sadness about missing out on the celebrations. My three children will each miss 2 birthday celebrations with their dad. There dad is deployed to Iraq. We are looking foreward to a very big birthday cellebration when he returns in 2007. I hope you can find some way of making your birthday special, maybe you could use it to help your community recover. You could plant a tree to replaces those that were destroyed, start a park, something to make your world more 'normal'. i understand the dangers, I was living in Pakistan in 1996, it was not fun. I wish I could do something more for you to make it special. I pray peace comes to you and your home.

Happy late birthday wishes! I hope that by now your mom is well on her way to a full recovery. She is so blessed to have a daughter such as you. I just found your site and will be returning to it often.
