“Blue sky, no clouds, Summer heat, side street, Whirling, whizzing feet. Everyone is out to play Today, around our way…”

Happy Good Deed Friday! Today's good deed idea does not require any money at all! Helping your mom or dad with chores is a great deed and very helpful! Help you dad wash the family car, help your mom fold the laundry, watering the lawn, taking out the garbage and washing the dishes. You can even help your siblings clean their room. There are lots of ways in chipping in and helping your family and home! Remember, when everyone pitches in, it makes the job a lot more fun and easier. And the work gets done much faster! ;)

Muslims around the globe observe Ramadan, from Africa, Asia, the Americas and across Europe and Australia. Moon Watchers is the story of an Iranian family and how they observe the month in their home in the US. It reflects Iranian culture beautifully and accurately. Growing up I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a couple of Ramadans with an Iranian family during their stay here. The family had children the same ages as my two younger sisters and me. This story brought back quite of few good memories of sleepovers and Iftars (the dinner meal) and grand Eids (End of Ramadan festival) and gifts.
