Introduction

I'm sixteen years old, sitting in the living room on the fluffy grass green couch, covered with a tide smelling navy-blue blanket, watching an episode of "I love Lucy". My Mom is in the kitchen making Tabouli and raw kibbie. We were waiting for my father to come back from the airport after picking up my oldest sister Maya who was on a two weeks vacation in San Diego, California.

Middle

A lot of times I pray and I work on my relationship with god, at the end of my aloof days I read the "Holly Quaran" then I go to sleep. In general a stretch for me as an aloof is to be with my self; I relax and I come down. The challenge for me is to know what is going inside of me.

I really don't like to be threatened about anything even if it was for my own good; therefore, I definitely don't appreciate being bullied into situations. With my father, he is a definite straight aloof. My dad keeps his feelings for himself; he is very laid back, relaxed, and he doesn't give his opinion unless he is asked for advice. ...read more.

Conclusion

At work I am the nice girl who every body likes. I feel like a second mother to all the children at the daycare center; unlike many of the teacher I really care about all the children's wellbeing. I need them just as much as they need me. Finally, I bless myself for all I am I am going to be, I bless myself for all of my control dramas, especially because I am passive and not aggressive. I bless myself for the love that I receive from my family. I bless myself for finally loving myself. Last but not least I truly bless myself for the man that I have in my life; who before him I didn't bless myself for anything. I love me forever I like me for always As long as I am living My Farooh I'll be Farah Al-Stouhi English 132 Writing piece # 3 A prophetic Stretching ...read more.
