Dont judge the...

Dont judge the book by its cover
Tho book is called "Does My Head Look Big in This". My sister brought it, and asked if i wanted to read it. To be honest when I saw the book I was like na-a, am not reading it, its just another story about a women treated bad, everyone pretty much hates her because of, oh nou, get this, she is wearing a scarf over her hair, -no thanks I know the story I live it. Then she toled me she read the book, its actually funny and interesting. I grabbed the book and made a face at her, as really?? I havent read a book since HS, i thought its time to start again,  so I started reading it. I couldn't stop, this book was everything but what judged it to be.. she was right, it was interesting!

This book, Does My Head Look Big in This, is about the girl Amal who went to Christian elementary school,  when she started HS she also started wearing Hijab. Very smart girl, she didnt let this peace of cloth stop her from making her dreams come true. There is also this boy Adam who liked her, well she liked him back, he tried to kiss her aand ull have to read the book to know what happen lol. She also had a mean neighborer who turned out to be a lonely sad mother who ... well read the book ;-)

Dont judge the movie by its cover
I did! I saw a guy from That 70's show (Eric Forman), and was like: Its gotta be a good movie! So my little sis and I went to see it. It was a weird movie, when it got to that part where this older women took her bra off, and started making out with a kid, while her nasty, weird boyfriend was watching, WE LEFT!! Im still trying to erase it from my memory. I mean Iv seen Bruno, I expected to see nasty and stupid, but this movie surprised both of us. I thought it was a love story movie, not a gross ew-y el stupido movie.

Dont judge the people by ..anything
Hmm.. I am bad at this, I dont judge people by the way they look, but somehow i judge everyone wrong. I live in my little world thinking that everyone is nice, perfect, polite, gentle and so on, this is why it turns out that am always wrong and thats how I end up disappointed.
I have a cousin who is always there -when he needs me! Once I help him, he kinda throws in one of those words that tell u, u had nothing else to do, or  you were the one who wanted to help him he didnt...aaand he is gone!
Then i have another cousin who was always, always there for me, when ever I need him, but I dont feel like I was there for him. :-(

I had two best friends who would always surprise me. Like back when I was 16, I toled them both this big secret of mine, the one I expected to believe me started laughing, like in comedy movies, with echo in my head. And the other one who I thought would judge me, or laugh at me... No, she said oh wow that is so cool, amm hold on, What, she is the one who believed me? I would of never guessed!  So while I was telling her more about this, my other friend was rolling on the floor laughing. lol Yea, life is like that, full of surprises.

Thinking out loud

We are all very different, but so much alike.
So many deaths at this moment, and God knows how many new borns?
No matter what language we speak, we all laugh, smile, cry and do many other things the same.
If we are so alike, why dont we understand each other? Why do we judge one another?
Not a single person has an easy life, we all know this, but still hurt each other.
I believe that every one of us has a rose inside them self. That beautiful part of us, that makes us smile at strangers when we walk by them. that sensitive part when we cried while watchinga sad movie.
Everybodys "rose" is different. Even the most mean person has it, but we gotta find it, and see it.
Instead of looking for someones flaws/mistakes, we should be looking for the rose inside them, because when you find one rose, LOOK AROUND, you might just find a GARDEN.

Have you ever found a rose, in the middle of dirty street?
I have.

Well...I over-drugged myself

Its been a long week. I am still sick, in fact I woke up with swollen face, how long will this what ever it is last? I am dizzy all day, cant sleep at night from coughing, and if i take Tylenol I am out like a baby. As a mother you cant just be out, even at night you gotta keep one eye open.
 The other day I over-drugged myself. I took some syrup for night time that was like a slap in the face. I dont remember falling asleep, I do remember my hubby waking me up for fajr and giving me some more of medicine. Not asking if its day, or night time syrup, i just swallowed.. (I didnt sleep after Fejr since forever, and iv been trying to keep it that way).
I have no idea how I prayed salah Fejr, i also did the dhikr after, but every time i blink i fall asleep, then wake up and dhikr, I kept trying. I remember moving from floor to the soffa, as soon as I set down i dont remember much, but I was sleeping and reciting, and every time I open my eyes i hear myself reciting Quran... LoL I was doing dhikr while wasted, how weird.  I hate to take those stupid syrups, but sometimes you have to. I am guilty of taking it when I wasn't sick thou :-) hihi I am sure am not the only one?

I was sick the whole weekend, I had cold, but that didnt ruin my day anything at all, in fact it made it more fun. Yesterday my kitchen smelled good, like Chiken Biryani Rice (my fav), but guess what? i wasn't the one who was cooking it, but the lazy one laying on sofa and watching tv, waiting for dinner. This isn't the first time my hubby cooks the dinner, hes done it many times since we got married. I just love that about him. He loves to cook, and he does a darn good job!That Biryani Rice, was honestly the best one Iv ever tried. My parents loved it too.
My fav meal is the one we cook together, it tasts good because its made with love. When am mad, or just not in good mood, he tries to cheer me up, Why? Because as he says:  if you make my food when ur mad, the food tasts mad, not good at all, but when ur happy your food is made with love and it tastes perfect, I know this, trust me. lol
