Dearest Anisah,

Your blog takes me elsewhere. To perfect, innocent, summer days where the sun is shining, the air is crisp, and there is a just-barely-there cool breeze that makes you close your eyes for a moment just so that you can open them back up and realize that you are not dreaming. I feel like my whole body is in equilibrium right now. My mind is elsewhere. I feel like I’m on a tire swing hanging from a tree with veins of lemonade. I feel like a child who just explored an abandoned summer house with my best friend, momentarily scared, and walked out feeling so alive. I feel like I’m lying down on healthy, green blades of grass, looking up at the clouds and day dreaming. I feel like a child who is running around on an adventure with her best friend to find fairies that will help us uncover secrets that will save the magical world. I feel like I’m in a tree house where there is a crack in the roof just big enough to let the sunlight shine through. I feel like I’m running through the sprinklers. My soul is smiling. I feel like the world is at peace. PEACE, Anisah! After all this war and disaster, it is like holding something you thought was out of your reach for so long and nothing has ever felt better. This feeling of love has just now taken over me and I’m smiling like everything really is just perfect. I have no idea how to say thank you for this feeling. I’m crying right now. I miss you, darling. I love you so much. I want to see you soon inshAllah 🙂 -Farah

WOW. I may have just become, if I wasn’t already, the happiest person in the world. Nicest thing ever said about a blog? I think so 🙂 I love Farah.
