On Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Yesterday was… strange! The day started with a page turned and closed. Sever mood swings turned me upside down several times like a fried fish. But I looked nice yesterday which made my spirits go high :) I had a very colorful scarf (koofeya). This is my very first scarf ever. Today I’ll go buy some threads and let mom teach me crochet. Back to yesterday, a very rich PTP presentation… saw many, many lovely faces… friends I love and miss. Then, in the middle of the presentation, I saw my picture popping up on the wall!!! I was like :O And Camel, the presenter, talked about the efforts that I and other 6 people dedicate to PTP. And he asked us to come forward to stage. I was grateful none could hear my knees shaking, hitting each others! A big “thank you” followed by a very nice, soft gift ;)






Then I went home happy with my little achievement. I was very exhausted and sleepy. In bed, I wrote this:


فتحت ملف وورد اهو… ها؟ هاكتب إيه؟ مممم… مش عارفة. أنا عايزة أنام. أنا بقالي كتير مش باحلم وأنا نايمة وديه مش عادتي. فاكرة زمان لما كنتي بتحلمي؟ أيوه… كنت باحلم أشتغل في حتة كويسة وربنا أكرمني. أنا كنت باحلم كمان أتجوز في شهر أكتوبر اللي فات بس الظاهر إني صحيت من الحلم قبل ما يتحقق. أنا لسة عايزة العصاية السحرية اللي آخرها نجمة بتلمع، كل ما أحركها في الهوا ينزل منها نجوم صغيرة. هاطلب أول حاجة أناناس وبعدين خوخ. وبعدين هاطرد الإسرائيليين من فلسطين وأبني بيوت كتير بدل اللي إتهدمت. وبعدين أحبس بوش ورايس مع تمساح في أوضة ثلاثة متر في إثنين متر. وبعدين هاطلب أناناس تاني. مممم… هاجيب فرشة وأرسم قوس قزح في السما وهاخلي الدنيا تمطر وتنزل ثلج و.. خخخخخخ… إصحي يا بنتي! هاتعملي إيه تاني؟ هانام بقى دلوقتي.


Today started well :) I washed some dishes in the morning, prepared tuna salad and got into Misty (my car) in good spirits :) Came to work and suddenly I felt that life is promising me something good. I have no idea what that could be… but I just feel… I don’t know… you know when you have this anticipating smile? When you know that some colours will paint your grey walls very soon? When you feel that warm sunrays will penetrate your thick walls to light the dark rooms inside? This is how I feel. I am open to life, to colours, and to light :)
