It was time.
There was no turning back.
I got myself into it. Even my husband didn’t even object. Instead, he volunteered to watch the kids for whole five hours!
I was anxious. What if I faint as soon as I open my fast (Muslims fast in the month of Ramadan. We don’t eat/drink anything starting from early morning till sunset. Almost seventeen hours in this part of the world).
What if they have to call an ambulance. What if I loose my temper.
So much can go wrong… It will be so embarrassing!
But I was all wrong.
I had a great time!
I had laughs with my fellow sisters. We were enjoying our tasks while wearing the “very” bright orange vest (in fact, it was a great idea to wear an orange vest, people knew who to route their questions to).
Utah Islamic center did a fabulous job. They hosted an iftar for the entire community. Kids and adults enjoyed the event.
Our hard work paid off!
Will I do it again?
Yes! Without a single hesitation (well, might have to bribe hubby next time, beef biryani?).
