Eid's spirit......

Hello friends ,
Eid was a week ago, this Eid wasn't like before , I didn't feel it's spirit ,we visited only 5 families !! and no one entered my house except one neighbor !! while before we used to visit many families during the Eid days , we used to have fun and laugh, and see a smile on everyone's face , but this Eid everyone was talking about policy, fuel , electricity , kidnapping , killing accidents , and other horrible subjects ! they were talking about our life (our reality) which is not fun at all .
We had a family meeting on the first day were we had lunch there , and then we went to my parents' eldest uncle , there was another family meeting , but I didn't see all the family members , they left early before we had arrived ( as you know the bridges can be locked at every sec) , I didn't see some of my relatives for over a year , in the next day we visited my dad's uncle , he had a surgery and was still lying in his bed. then we visited his other uncle. at night our neighbors visited us( the one who was kidnapped awhile ago) , in the next day we visited our friend's house , Dr. E and his family , while we were there we heard a nearby explosion and shooting .
I was really busy that's why I couldn't write to you , I had my monthly exams ( biology , English , chemistry , physics , history , and geography ) , I did well .
The chemistry exam was so hard , the teacher said that she brought us hard questions , to see how intelligent we are ! many of the girls cried after the exam because the didn't know how to answer , anyway , I was really worried , I didn't know whether my answers were right or not , but thank god , I was one from few girls who answered the questions correctly .
We had two biology exams , in the first exam I did really good , and I was expecting a full mark , but I got 90% , I had only one mistake , I deserve higher mark , but very few girls got nineties marks, many got eighties, seventies , even sixties , the teacher gave us low marks so that we study harder , that's what she said
The geography and history teacher will not teach us anymore , because she will study to get the MSc degree , another teacher will teach us , I feel terrified when I see her , she taught me in the first and second class.
This year in English , we should make a summary after every paragraph we take , and every chapter of the novel" kipps", I usually don't use the words written in the book , I try to use their synonyms to make the teacher amazed , she always asks me" from where did you learn such terms ?..
A new girl came to my class , we became friends immediately , we have the same interests , the same opinions , and she is sooooo sweet , I am really happy, we became really close , and we sit in the same desk , she also like to help the others .
Live strong,
Sunshine ..
Btw , the answers I got from many organizations " it is too late for the boy " or " there is no chance for curing " but I will keep searching, because I believe that it is never too late , and I will never ever give up, I would like to thank my friends who helped and supported me , wayne , for what it worth, kim , nabil , najma , david , madcanuck , miraj , olive branch , grayday101 , Original_Jeff , and I am missing many friends they are so many to mention , thank you all for your support and kind words , I love you all.

Hello Dear One,

I am sorry Eid was not as it should be, but I know that there will come a day that you will be able to celebrate as you wish. I only pray that the day is soon.
Your marks are wonderful. You are working so hard and the fact that you are challenging yourself with English speaks very loudly about your determination to learn and be the best you can be. Your mother and father are very proud of you, no doubt.
I am sorry to hear that the organizations are not willing to lend a hand for your dear friend. I will continue to pray and pass his message forward. Somewhere, someone is waiting to help. We just need to find them.
Be safe, Dear One. Know that there are prayers for your safety and joy are sent each and every day.

Hey, Eid Mubarak..
Hope the next one is going to be better, for you and Iraq.

Glad you found a new, nice friend.. I'll have to look for one soon as I start uni.
Do the best you can in school.. and don't worry about bad marks, it really doesn't matter if you've done your best. You'll use them to comfort your sister in the future, I know I always do!

Dearest Sunshine:

I am so sorry that your Eid was so sad. My hope and prayers is that the next one, or soon there after, will be a very pleasant one.

I am very happy to hear of your marks in your school classes. Don't worry about not making 100 on them all. As long as you do your best, you are to be congratulated. When I was your age, some 60 years ago, I was usually happy to get 80. I did occasionally get 90 or over on agriculture, math and health.

I'm also glad that you have met a new friend. I hope that you and she can enjoy a happy friendship.

Best wishes and prayers for your safety, health and happiness.

How's the book coming along? I'm dying to read it!!!
Love ya Sunshine!

Saw your blog about best home in india loan - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this link with you. We were paying far too much for family things like clothes for us and the kids, games consoles inc the new Wii and soon to be PS3, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones, landline calls, home and garden items, camping equipment and utilities/loans etc - you name it, we were spending too much on it.

Then a friend of mine recommended a site called We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday abroard each year. Booked of course on Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!

Good blog - very interesting!! I liked it so much I'm going to share this hush hush advice with you. Ever wondered how your neighbours are driving around in their brand new BMW or Mercedes cars - with their kids dressed in all the latest named gear and foreign holidays aplenty?? Well they discovered the secret to the extra online income.

If you are looking for a free tool to attract loads of free links to your blog or website then congratulations I've got the solution for you - and it is FREE!!

My website specialises in low interest home equity loan and to drive traffic to my website I was searching around the internet for absolutely ages looking for SEO tools and ffa submission sites to fire my site up the Google search engine - unfortunately these doing work and in fact had the opposite affect plunging my site down the rankings like it had a heavy weight attached!!, then I signed up for this free superb traffic generating tool - I now have loads of hits to my websites/blogs and my site is shooting back up the Google rankings quicker than ever before.

Consequently this saw my affiliate commissions shoot through the roof - meaning lots of extra money coming in for my family - I bought my first Mercedes car on the proceeds of my online campaign.
Sign up now - it's free.
. Sorry if this information is of no use to you but seeing as you have the anonymous feature enabled I thought I should share this free bit of essential promotional advice with you and would hope you would do the same for me and others who want to boost their online internet income.

I hope the tool will serve you equally as well as it has me - it's free!!

Best of luck, cheers for now, dave.

As much as viagra has rescued the people from the cruel grip of erectile dysfunction it has also proved to be a curse to many because of wrong conception and wrong interpretation of its functioning. People buy viagra with the notion of having an extra erotic night without actually having the need to. Nowadays Viagra is also easily accessible and anyone can buy viagra online. In addition viagra online is more often than not cheap viagra i.e. a discounted version. People can easily get Viagra from the online pharmacies using wrong information. But in this way they will harm no one but their own selves, so it is always handy to have a clear conception of the drug one is taking.
