Saturday was a very special day. My sisters and I were planning for a surprise for my mom. it was her birthday and what was the most beautiful thing is that she had forgotten!!!!
Since the early morning, we woke up , and arranged the home, made breakfast and the little sisters went to the shop near our home and bought balloons and a snow spray (we use such spray in special occasions such as weddings, graduations and birthday parties). We needed to turn to the secondary plan because of the sudden curfew that had been announced by the government in Mosul.
At 1:15 p.m. I called the best friend, and we kept talking for about quarter of an hour, and maybe it was the happiest quarter I have ever spent. I felt I'm like a plume , can fly so high, and go to him. I was so happy and to be mentioned I said God's name more than hundred times, I was so embarrassed and shy but not after I heard his voice, I really felt comfortable. and when I ended the calling, I soon told my mom, she saw my shining eyes and said " oh dear!! I'm sure he feels happy with this calling too ".
Then, after lunch, we began to put the balloons ,and the ornament everywhere in the biggest room in our home. and lightly brough the cake , dessert and juice.
Mom asked " why do you lock up the door??
We answered " Oh.. yes.. maybe.. ok.. we are ... we want... ok mom!! this time it isn't your business!! we are sorry"
actually we hardly could hide our laughs. hahaha. it was a happy feeling.
At 7:00 p.m., we changed our clothes and wore the most beautiful ones, we then sent an invitation to mom to attend the party ( we wrote the invitation and sent two copies, to mom and dad, and it was my sister A idea).
Then, mom and dad came, and as soon as they entered the room we said " Wowwwwwww,happy birthday!!!!!!" and began to spray, and disperse chocolate.
Mom was really surprised ( but not dad, we told him in advance, he was a great helper to not to let her feel of our planning) . we began to sing songs, kissing the mom, playing the play with our little dolls( it was a play about mom and her three daughters and two sons, and the dad was very helpful one"
then , we began to read the poems that we created for the mom ( mom's tears falling down, I was so surprised, my mom is a very strong woman, she is my greatest support and kindness source, I couldn't bear this scene and hard could hide tears of mine too).
There was so much fun, jokes , songs, dancing and playing. Mom felt so happy.
Mom!!! you are great!!!
Mom said that it had been so nice of us to remember her birthday!!!
" you are the kind of mother.. everyone should have
you are always giving so much..without expecting anything back
your heart is so gentle.. and filled with love
you are not only a great mother ..you are a special one
May your birthday deliver endless blessings to you
for your support and caring and all that you do"
We also received a calling from my unlce who lives inUAE asking us to attend the gathering that will be happened in Syria. He said that all our relatives from different countries in the world will attend, and they all insist on seeing us. He said that we will consider Syria as our station and we can go anywhere else from it. I liked this idea, and maybe we all will go to Turkey, I love the family meetings. especially when I live here alone, with only my little family. I have no relatives in this city, I many times feel bored of being alone and spend hours imagining my relatvives whom I have never seen, they all know my and know my name, But I ....
Regards the situation, Curfew has started on Saturday , the present military operation is called
" Lion Roaring'' as I think. inspection happens in different quarters in Mosul, and we are praying for the happy and peaceful latter.
