That night me and my mom went out to see Enchanted, which I heartily recommend, as one of the sweetest, most romantic movies I've seen in a long time. My mom arrived a couple minutes late, not realizing that the movie begins as a cartoon. She told me later she thought, "Oh. Jed's into cartoons. Okay. Well, I can do this. I use to watch cartoons with them. I'll just try to enjoy it."
Yesterday, the day after Thanksgiving, we got to go to the Seattle Aquarium.
And then it was off, rushing up to the mosque in time for prayers. I shared how I got to the mosque last week, for the first time in over a year. Today was a special day, as my mom went to the mosque for the first time. She went upstairs, where she described the women listening intently, some praying during the sermon. She followed along with the others, in tying the scarf and making the motions. My mom was very impressed with the kindness of the one woman who assisted her, asking her if she was interested in following Islam.
Afterwards I got this picture. I think my mom looks so cute!- just like one of those matrons I'd see on the street in Morocco. We went on to a spaghetti dinner, and discussed what our family might be like if we'd all been born Muslim. Sophia needs to get married off soon!
