I am a 37 years old mom ,I am a mother of 3 children. I am a Dentist. I try to make every thing perfect. The life I have, the difficulties I face make me anxious.. I like to have a social life; I cannot resist my feeling of being lonely, but I don’t have good social life, & I am lonely.

Paradise in Hell

I have beautiful apartment ,very well designed, very well decorated, full of handmade decorations ,I made them by my self . In this summer my husband painted the apartment while we were in Baghdad visiting my parents, we put new curtains ,we modernized the sitting room furniture .Last summer we bought new Turkish furniture to Sunshine's bedroom , my kids have very nice rooms apt to the child's world . We also have large garden( we built our apartment over the house of my parents in law) ,my mother in law take care of it all the time ( she is a expert), you can see many kinds of flowers ,nice trees , even some of them are scarce , like a tree gives very tiny oranges, it put its bounty twice a year ,it's a Japanese tree. Another tree gives very large lemon ,its size equals a melon size, with very nice smell.
But when you open the outside door you see dirty street , with many craters, then when you turn to the main street you will find more & larger craters &holes, at the sides of the streets there are partly destroyed buildings. You can also see policemen in the checkpoint wearing black face cover (very scary & forbidding)…..
Everyone who comes to our apartment feels like he is in a different world ,unlike the outside world, when the American soldiers entered our house for inspection , every one said' WAW' , one of them kept saying very nice . One of them throw him self on our couch , saying that is just like home , & many other flattering sentences .
I can't imagine our life without our paradise , you know we spend most of the time in it , we only leave it to go to our jobs , & the kids go to their schools , I mean we go out very rarely for other reasons……..
Thanks to Allah that gave us our own Paradise ….

Earth within the many realms of hell
Dark beauty of loving red
Decapitated faith of the holly men
Reality of dreams on murderous scenes
A bloodless body transfused to hell
Living is so swell the headless victim yell
Paradise in hell punctured ears ringing the bells
Paradise in Hell

Your apartment and garden sound very nice. Fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden are always so much better tasting than those we purchase from the store. The oranges and lemons sound delicious!! If possible I would love to see pictures of your home and garden (but only if it doesn't give away who or where you are).

For the longest time in the U.S. the paint on everyone's walls were usually some shade of white/off white. Now everyone seems to be putting more brilliant colors on there walls. Is the modern look in Iraq include white or colored walls? I suspect that the soldiers were surprised because your house was not only familar to home but unique for Iraq. Hopefully they were respectful and asked before they threw themselves on your couch.

I wish for the day when things will be calm enough that the craters can be filled and the buildings repaired. Until then, it is nice that you all make such an effort to retain your own paradise.

I hope you don't mind, but this is the first time that I've read your blog and I posted my comments here on my blog.

I read your interview with The Patriot a little while ago.

American soldiers are working very hard and are very determined to make Mosul safer for your children who are going to school.

You indicated that a year ago was scary. Please read this report which says a lot of the bad guys that were all over the place causing problems in Mosul a year ago have been put out of business. It is not Americans saying this, it is the bad guys saying this who have been captured.

Michael Yon

If these guys took 80% of the bad guys out in the past year, and keep working hard, hopefully things will be much better this year.

I really enjoyed your article today. I believe the Japanese Orange is called Kinkan in Japanese. It is called cumquat or kumquat in English. I love them. They are so very sweet. I bought a pair of the small trees in Louisiana and tried to grow them in my garden but it is too cold in the winter so they died. I did have a good crop of cabbage, tomatoes and cucumbers this year. I grow more than I need and give them to friends who don't have a garden. Thank you for all your articles. I love hearing from you.

The leaders of Al Qaeda in Mosul have been captured.

Hopefully the city can begin to rebuild itself and start looking as nice as your home.
