I can’t believe I’ve been married that long. We finally got to be together on an anniversary. I am so happy to finally be with my husband again. We also hit another milestone… this is the longest we’ve lived together. We’re both still alive, so it must be going well!
It’s not the marriage that’s most difficult though. Living in Egypt is not easy. It’s not awful, but I feel a bit lonely here. I really miss my family and friends. I miss being able to go places when I feel like it. I miss shopping at a regular grocery store. I really miss my four-legged furry children. I talked to my cat on the webcam and she just kept looking for me when I was talking. It just made me sad.
I have faith that Allah has a plan for me. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t need to be. So, Alhamdulilah.
