Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies. ~Rudy Giuliani

I am definitely going to miss you Granny.

Breaking the LAW

The only time I ever got close to breaking the law, was when I broke the speed limit while driving.
Sometimes, it is because the stupid law putters or whatever they are called, put a very slow speed limit for a well-known highway.
Here in Egypt, I feel they mean to put such speed limits to piss the drivers off, and get money out of our pockets.
Anyway, I do get caught by camera when I am not concentrating, since everyone in Egypt know where the cameras are. ๐Ÿ˜›

Other than that, that is the closest thing I got to being a law-breaker. :$


Not again!

Why do the people who write-up the daily prompts; enjoy this topic? It upsets me to think of such times.

It hurts!

Well, today’s “365 writing prompts” challenge said:

Helplessness, that dull, sick feeling of not being the one at the reins. When did you last feel like that? And what did you do about it?

What are the chances? Fate? Coincidence? That today’s writing challenge prompt would be about Helplessness.

When did I last feel like THAT?

That was a simple question to ask and not so hard to answer.
Tonight, when I got the news that my dear dear dear grandmother passed away.

I felt so helpless,
Nothing I do will make her come back,
Nothing I do will make things better.
I felt so helpless,
just another mere mortal,
having to part with my dearest people to death.
I felt so helpless,
just another mere mortal,
taken over by the unknown
and surrendering to death one day
to join many others before me.
Nothing will help me to feel better and lose this feeling of helplessness.

Maybe only the faith in a better life and a better world after death, and my sheer determination to live my life to the best, (the way I would like it to be) can help me go through it.

Christmas won’t be Christmas!

My 5th post into the 365 writing challenge of 2014, was for me to write the first sentence from my favourite book into a post.

I had a hard time choosing a book, I LOVE to read and it is not fair to say I have one specific favourite book.

In the end, I chose “Little Women

And the first sentence in the book said:

“Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents,” grumbled Jo, lying on the rug.

With the Coptic Christmas after two days, it was such an amazing coincidence and a great time to wish my friends Merry Christmas ๐Ÿ˜€

Stroke of Midnight! Welcome 2014!

I am blessed to remember I have the greatest support and loving system backing me up all the time.

I was lucky to spend New Year’s Eve with my family.
