To Be a Mother for the First Time

On Sunday 24 October 2010, Allah gave me my first baby Mariam.

A new experience & a different feeling I cannot describe it.

Yes, it is a big responsibility, but it is a nice task to look after a tiny weak creature.

In the beginning, I was not enthusiastic much because:

1. I did not love the children in general before the marriage, only my nephews.

2. I was not ready to the pregnancy or qualified for bringing up a child, although I am 31 years old.

3. I was hoping to have a Natural Childbirth, but I had a Cesarean Section.

4. I was hoping to have a boy, but I had a girl. She is the first granddaughter & niece in our families.

But now, I think is Mariam the greatest novel I wrote in my life!
