craving: going to Dubai to visit one of my sweetest most loving friends.
Salam Alikom my Muslim readers. Hola to you non-Muslim readers.
I think its time to get to know a tiny bit about me. Don't y'all love to go read blogs and know about the person who's writing? I do. I think it makes it more personal. I have nothing to hide. So, here it is.
I am a loving mother who cherishes her two beautiful kids. I thank God for them every single day, several times a day. I have two wonderful children. My daughter is sixteen and son is two years old. He terrorizes my daughter, day in and day out, poor girl. They're my life and every heart beat.
Since I've reverted to this wonderful most beautiful religion, Islam, I've kept myself busy with an all woman's Islamic forum. I've had that since 2004 and it's brought so much joy and love into so many sisters' lives. I've met so many wonderful women from around the world and bonded with them as I'm bonding with my blog sisters in the blog world. It's lovely. I can't say enough about it.
I'm a very easy going person and I love the color PINK, only in clothes/make-up, NOT in the home. I love animals: dogs are my favorite . I love to act silly and get together with my friends and cook up a storm for them. I like to think I am a good friend and will always try my best to help anyone if they need help. I love anything that smells good, candles and perfumes and house oils are the best. I love to keep my home nice and clean.
I am married to a brother from UAE. I've had the ride of my life since being Muslim and marrying a man from another culture.
I like to watch chick flicks, grab some popcorn with chocolate and chill out with my daughter.
My family and I lived in Germany for five years, because Abu Azooz attended a university there. We learned so much living there and our daughter speaks fluent German as does Abu Azooz. I understand more than I speak.
As y'all know, we are living here in United Arab Emirates, and we have lived here going on 3 yrs. It was the biggest culture shock to me when we arrived and we laugh about it now. It wasn't funny at the time. Ask my two best friends, Twizzle and Om Abdullah. I was so ridiculous. I'll make another post in the near future and let y'all know what things made me cry. I wouldn't ever wanna live any other place in the world. UAE is my home.
I was born in San Antonio, Texas, but raised on a border town. Mexico (where my grandfather was from) was only a hop-skip from my house. We always went there . I haven't been back to Texas in almost ten years. It's been a long time, but God's willing, we'll be going back to visit.
I taught myself Spanish, because Mom and Dad didn't teach us. Just thinking about my Dad's parents and them not knowing any English makes me giggle, because I had to teach myself. I asked my dad a while back and he told me, "It's so y'all wouldn't understand when your mom and I spoke." LOL I started learning Spanish when I was in grade school. I had no choice. Now, thank God, I speak Spanish and just miss it so much. I miss my Latina sisters back in Texas.
Well, if theres anything else y'all wanna know come join my all sisters forum and get to know more about me and my family. Don't be shy to join, you won't regret it.
I've enjoyed the blogging world so much, it brings so many inspiring stories and I love that. I think it has really brought out the better side of myself. Thank you everyone for keeping up with my little posts. Your comments really make me smile.
Keep all the great blogs coming. I get so lost in them, especially the inspiring stories. They take me to another place. I love going to that other place. I hear nothing around me and can really just read forever.
final whisper: Thanks to all you readers/friends out there. If my posts have helped just one person, I am happy.
P.S. I tag everyone who reads this. I would love to get to know more about y'all. Please make a post.
