Bits and Pieces: Change


Why does change have to be so hard?
Why can't things stay the way they are?

I love the way everything went
the way i was able to smile
and not be pushed or rushed.

This poem is still in mid writing and I still feel like changing it. Ha! Change is the topic... well maybe I'll let you continue it and write your own version.

Wednesday's Web Finds

I found a poem on The Ideal Muslimah page. It's beautiful, masha'allah! I know you'll agree, so go watch it!

In this blog world I found so many sisters and recently I found Riham at Beauty of Islam. You'll be touched and inspired!

Till I come back... enjoy!!

Titles on Tuesday

It's the first of February, so let's start this month with something cool. That's how the U.S. is feeling: bitter cold and icy. We can stay warm with love and laughs!

Yesterday, resource class made my day. So I had a good last day of January. Why? I'm still working on that memoir I mentioned earlier. I got my resource teacher to read it. Later I offered her to help me with the title. She got the whole class involved. Here's some of the titles they came up with:

Hijabs R Us
Cover Girl
Covered but Not Forgotten
The Great Cover Up
The Oppression of the Unoppressed

what do you think? Is there anything else you can think of?

P.S. That night I found this post about titles; I think it's helpful.
