I was walking through Target today when I passed two little girls. One turned to watch me and said to her daddy, "She's really pretty!" D'awwwww! Her daddy said, "Yes, she is," as they walked by, and I told her that she was pretty, too.
Kids are so cute. And to be complimented with such enthusiasm whilst in hijab! Awesome!
Welcome to my blog!
This blog is an honest look at what life is like for this particular American convert to Islam. We're taught in Islam to cover our sins, to not air them, for fear of lessening the severity of sinning. In this blog, I may relate past indiscretions from time to time. This isn't to make light of them, but in the interest of educating Muslims and non-Muslims alike as to the realities of life as an American convert, I present my mistakes honestly. I make no excuses for them, nor do I claim that they were okay to make. I am not perfect, and I make no pretenses as to that. If others can learn from my past, know that Islam, and religion in general, is open for people no matter what mistakes they've made, then I will gladly air my sins when needed.
