This Little Sheepie Went to Market

I watched him as he took Mr. Boo's hand and did an adorable little finger play rhyme in Arabic. Smiles and laughs all around!

"Ahhh, that was cute!" I coo. "What did you say?"

"It was a little song about the slaughter of the sheep and all the blood running down."

I laughed even more.

I was once again in a cross-cultural relationship.

Oh my gosh! Is that Mr. Boo? He's so cute! I'm so glad it's going so well Yosra.

Asalamu Alaykom Lisa,

No, Sweetie :) That is an Iraqi boy, God bless him. I don't know his name.

Mr. Boo, a.k.a. my little three-and-a-half-year-old son, is a different kind of cute, mashahallah.

Life...or at least parts of my life...are very good. Alhumdulillah.

The parts that don't seem very good...well, I'm still thanking God for them. Maybe they are part of a bigger plan which is yet unfolding :)
