mood: thrilled ❤ ❤ ❤
craving: chocolate ice-cream and a walk on the river walk
The weekend is near and it can't come any faster. My daughter will spend Memorial Day weekend with her father so it's just Azooz and I. We do have a busy weekend, I'm excited. One of my close friends is leaving back to Saudi Arabia in nine more days. So, this weekend will be a must to spend some time with her and other sisters. There's a henna party on Friday, so Azooz and I will be attending. On Saturday one of my friends is coming down to Texas to visit me. ❤ Saturday through Monday will be busy. I have my weekend planned out. Inshallah (God's willing) we will have a nice Memorial Day weekend. I'll miss my daughter; when she's gone it's not the same.
In other news: my dad is doing good. I'm cooking healthy food for all of us and it's really paying off. He has lost a lot of weight and feels really good. I don't buy processed food anymore and bake everything. Healthy feels good. ♡ I'm listening to some, 'Smooth Jazz' now and relaxing with one of my closest friends. She came for dinner and now she's reading a book and I'm finishing off this entry. It's nice to have the kind of friend you don't have to entertain. Y'all are like sisters and if your quiet for 2 hours you don't feel akward. That's the type of friends I have.
The house smells like I baked a rich vanilla cake. Thanks Bath & Body works. Their oils are amazing. Azooz is playing on the trampoline outside with his sister. It's getting really hot here in Texas. I feel like drinking an Iced Espresso. That sounds good. ✿
Mosha- our cat- is keeping us entertained. She's interested in trying to get at our beta fish, Mo. Kinda keeping a eye on her so Mo isn't her dinner.
Azooz came in the house the other day and said, 'Mama, this is for you." Aww, he's so precious. He handed me a leaf. Kids sure do grow up fast and he's doing just that. I wish I could hold him in my arms forever. I think that's every mom's dream. Amber got me some beautiful pink roses the other day. When she gave them to me, I saw the look in her eyes. She just hugged me and told me, she loves me and I'm the best mother ever. My kids are my life and my life revolves around them. I wouldn't have it any other way. I couldn't imagine living a day without the two of them.

Hmm, what else. Well, as y'all can see, my life is going on still. Just taking life as it comes. Believe it or not, it's getting so much better than I ever thought. I'm finally adjusting to my America. Well, that's about it. I've run out of things to say. Have a nice Memorial Day weekend everyone. And to my friends in the Middle east: have a great rest of the weekend, since y'alls weekend started today.
final whisper: Yeah, I'm smiling ♥. But, you're not the reason anymore.
mood: relaxed craving: time with the family Cucaracha, means Roach in Spanish. There's something about those gross, brown, ugly bug...

Many non-Muslims have come to incorrectly believe that Allah is the ‘God of Muslims’ – A deity somehow different from the God of the other faiths. It should be emphasized that the term “Allah” has no implied meaning at all of an Arabian god, a Moon god or even a Muslim god. Muslims are not claiming any exclusiveness when they say "Allah". However Allah is simply the Arabic Name of the one Almighty God; the same name by which Arabic-speaking Jews and Christians, refer to God. The Allah comes from the term ‘al-ilaah’. Al is the definite article in Arabic, equivalent to ‘the’ in English, while ilaah means ‘a deity or god’. So Allah means The God. This is beautifully articulated in the first pillar of Islam which is to believe that God is One, in Arabic it would be, "La ilaha illallah" meaning "There is no god but God"
"I've learned from studying Islam and being Muslim, that if your happiness is based on people approving of everything you do, you're doomed to fail. Islam helped me stand up and take responsibility for everything to do with me."
