Thanks God for Omar




Yesterday was a big day in my dear son's life. It was the first day since we arrived to Gaza in late June that a friend of his came to our home to play. Omar is in his class and they found each other from the very beginning, both being calm and kind. Kids here can be very violent and therefore my son has had a hard time relating to other boys in his age. That's why we are so grateful for Omar. This little six year-old is the reason our life runs more smoothly making my son love to go to school in the morning in spite of other difficulties.

After speaking to Omar's mother a few times at school and over the phone, she finally took my invitation of letting Omar come over to play. We tried to spoil him as much as possible with Sprite (his choice) and chocolate.

I love the hand picture!

Actually, I wish I had a Buzz Lightyear myself.....

I hope the two boys go on enjoying being friends. It makes all the difference at school.

it is always tough changing schools. Maybe your son should take up wrestling or boxing as a sport and toughen him up a little bit. But kids easily adjust and make freinds wherever they go sometimes it just takes time.
