Eid-e Shoma Mobarak!

My Nowrooz spread in progress...it's still missing a few things, but I needed this picture!
I am getting ready to go to my sister's house for dinner and tahvil-e-sal, where my other sisters and their families are gathering, too. And so, this is my last post for 1386. What a year this has been! A year of new beginnings, unexpected gifts, surprises, and new lessons. I consider myself one of the most blessed people in this world, for I have learned some very valuable lessons this year, feeling all the richer for the experience. I have and hold all that matters in this world, the love of friends and family, a lifestyle that offers me joy and excitement and motion, good health, a heart that beats for the love of life and a mind that can get over sadnesses quickly and hold happinesses forever. I have two wonderful friends in my adult children, family I am proud to love, and friends who are behtar az barg-e derakht...
I want nothing new for the new year, except for peace on earth, and peace and joy in everyone's hearts all over the world. My biggest wish this year is to keep what I already have, to be able to maintain and deepen my relationships and if I should meet new people anywhere, to have the strength and time to get to know them and to welcome them into my life. I wish for all of you joy, happiness, love, propsperiy, success and health. I pray that all your wishes come true and that your hearts are filled with kindness and forgiveness all year round. Now I pray the following prayer for you and for all of Iran and Iranians everywhere (Ya Moghallebolgholoob):
“Oh, you transformer of hearts and emotions, you master of day and the night, you provider of health and better times. Turn our lives into the possible best!” *
* From Zohreh Khazai Ghahremani's article last year.

Dear Lady from Berkely,
Happy Norooz.
We haven't been introduced officially. But I read your blog often and I like it, very much. It has a sense of "elder-sister-,-nice-kind-aunt" to it. So I allow myself to wish you a very happy new year; with health, peace, and prosperity; for you and your family.

Nazy joon. You are for sure one of the most blessed person I've ever known. Sorry that I am not having time to read your recent posts, and am so busy with work and unexpected issues in life. I hope this coming year is full of love and happiness for you and your loved ones. Thank you again for writing me several notes in the last few months of my disappearance from the blogosphere. :-))

I should also leave you a direct comment, as I come by and read your most interesting posts all the time! I am delighted you came to visit me and left a message. I come and read your fun and mysterious posts, and wonder who you are and what you do! If you feel so inclined, please share something about yourself sometime.

Eidat mobarak.

Dear M:

Thank you for your kind comment and your good wishes. Are you an Iranian? I ask that more out of curiosity than anything else! Whether or not you are, you can celebrate this season with us. Happy Nowrooz.
