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.
