mood:missing someone special
Salam Alykom my dolls.. Alllloooo (Arabic accent) to all my sweet followers out there... <3
Today was a productive day, I got a lot done. With a three year old, sometimes its kinda hectic, but I survived. YAY, me.. On to my entry.. The household is sleeping and I have some, 'me' time now. *sigh*
"Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends."
All you non-Arab readers out there are probably wondering,"What's that writing on Texan's kitchen chalk board?" Well, let me tell y'all what it is.. It's the sweetest, most lovely message from one of the nicest friends ever. It says, "I love you, Kristina." Let me tell you a little about my sister in Islam. She's really spunky and really vivacious and she turns any head when she walks in the room. I loved her from the first 'Salam' and kiss on the cheeks. I love her so much, because she reminds myself of me when I was her age. She'll be leaving back to her country Saudi Arabia soon. But, I just wanna let her know, what she means to me. And what better place to type my feelings down than my blog. I wrote this a while back and was going to read it to her the last get together we will have. I'm such a cry baby when it comes to friends/sisters leaving. I guess I can break the ice here and I'll have another speacial gift for her before she leaves. Here is what I wrote for her....
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
You and I are so much a like, it intrigues me.But, I knew when you opened your mouth to talk to me and I heard your words and how they made me laugh, that you were compassionate, caring and loving.
When you smiled, it took me to another place; a place where people and lions got along, a place where hearts and balloons were the sky,
A place where humans never hurt.
You are everyone's sunshine and you are my family's sun. You are clearly unique...a diamond.
Always know you are loved by us. Texas will always be a place for you and your family to come and enjoy, and your son's birthplace, his home. :)
I will miss you, my friend/sister.
Distance shouldn't keep us away from each other.
Someday every dream of yours will come true and we will be together again. If not in this life, then in Jannah. (heaven)
all my love to you, nonna... <3
- Texan, after UAE
final whisper: Why does it take a minute to say hello and forever to say goodbye?
