Eid Mubarak

Farewell to Ramadan writing for another (lunar) year.

No more breakfasts with my husband every morning. I'm going to miss that, but not enough to continue getting up at 4 to make them.

This is the first year I haven't gotten sick while fasting.

And this year, for the first time, I'm going to go to Welcome Back Monarchs Day at Natural Bridges, and eat the pumpkin ice cream. I've been waiting three years for Ramadan to pass this celebration by.

None of these things are particularly profound. There is, however, a quiet feeling of accomplishment, and strength, and maybe a serenity that doesn't lend itself easily to words.
