When I lived in the Middle East I shared several iftar meals like this one with friends. Iftar in Arabic literally means, “break the fast...” I don’t just go to learn about their faith; I go to learn about my own.
My daughter has many other women who mother her, though. They teach her things and instill qualities in her I cannot offer on my own. I willingly share the spotlight with them.
I wanted her to be somewhere where the people wave as you drive by, not because they know you necessarily, but because you’re both from here.
