Family Feelin


Sometimes when Im going somewhere for fu6oor Im late for one reason or another.. whatever it may be I always walk in fashionably late. I like going to my grandparents house, some people know what I mean when you walk in and see all your aunts, uncles, cousins, and babies running around. Its really interesting seeing all the kids growing up and your at a different stage in your life.

I love seeing all my cousins and extended family! You see people cracking jokes at one another, then Im trying to figure out who to talk to. I want to talk to a lot of different people. You know you have your favorite set of cousins, but you still love em all. You might not have enough time, but you still make the effort. Fu6oor is a session of statements flying across the table. After a long day of work, and not much sleep this is what I look forward to in Ramadan, I thought Ramadan will be easier when it comes to work, but I was totally wrong. It has been more work, but just that time spent with family makes it all good, even with evening commitments Im just happy for those 1 – 2 hours talking and laughing. Its nice catching up with different people, and its nice seeing people twice a week that you usually might see them once a year if you manage to catch them. I love that Ramadan unites people at the end of the day, and thats what I love about Ramadan in Kuwait.

Im trying to stuff my mouth while trying to taunt my cousin about something he was doing, while taking one of the kids and messing around with them. And its fun seeing the younger cousins coming up to you and looking up to you, asking you questions. I remember when I used to be that kid. Thats why I loved some of my cousins they were cool about lots of things, and kind to me when I was young. So now Im in their shoes, and Im close to my older cousins and try to help out my younger cousins in whatever they want. Even if they just want to talk! Its a cool thing.. its a good thing. I want to eat more, and I want to talk more.

At the end of the day its just a nice warm feeling that you cant substitute for anything. I hope every person knows this feeling!
