Yesterday was my cousin's wedding- well not really a wedding, it was her Katb Ketab (basically the Muslim wedding contract) and the rehearsal dinner. My cousin did not get engaged, it was her fat-ha, then two weeks later, her qiran. It was sudden, but I guess that's how it is when everything feels right. I am so happy for her!!! I still need to ask if I can post pictures, though. The one I have posted is candid, of them on the yacht which we got on after dinner.
According to here; "In Islam, marriage is considered both a social agreement and a legal contract. Negotiating and signing the contract is a requirement of marriage under Islamic law, and certain conditions must be upheld in order for it to be binding and recognized."
So that was my one extraordinary thing for the 4th of August.
Before that was an amethyst necklace given to me by an AMAZING person; Galida...or how it's pronounced; Khalida, my mom's cousin's wife. She truly is an amazing person. And she gave it to me to cure my headache, it's also been giving me clarity, I swear.
And then there was my new job.
How has it been going with you? Gala Darling posted this today; amazing ideas!
I wrote this for you post that I can heartbreaking-ly relate to.. and has anyone ever felt that way?
Sometimes, I wish a certain person would be with me, knowing that they would appreciate a certain view. And at other times, I wish people would see things the way I see them.
