My daughter has an Arabic name. This is odd to a lot of people, especially since she is blonde and blue eyed. It’s a beautiful name, and it has meaning – which is terribly important to me. I am a fan of the Arabic language, the words that can mean a paragraph in English translation, the beautiful script, the hacking of loogies while saying certain combinations of letters. I personally love it, but if I had stayed in Idaho (instead of moving to the middle east), I may have ended up naming my daughter “Spud” or “Or-Ida.” Egads.
My bubble was Saudi Arabia for a good portion on my life. I loved that bubble. Except when there was a war in it – that was a bit obnoxious. Bubbles and wars just don’t mix. Say YES to bubbles and NO to war!!!
