Bambi is too excited to wait for midnight for this post about January 17.
Plus, the family festivities (of course MUCH limited in the pandemic and circumstances) have just ended in Beirut :).
May Saint Anthony always protect Bambi’s dad who is her (and many others’) hero (further below, you can see an earlier post honouring him)!!
Without much words, Bambi will just say: I love you “Antonio” (love her mom too… OK and all our family too)). Bless you dad!
An now time for some music. First, here is a fun kid’s song for you with a simple yet powerful message (perhaps to which, we should add that, in addition to the languages mentioned in the song, your daughter has enjoyed all our games about the standard Arabic language). Of note, you were her first German teacher, in the shelter, when she was 15-16. Following this came the Goethe Institute (after that particularly long round of shelling ended). You kindly offered her your own first grammar book from Germany. She managed to bring to safety to Canada in 1990 with her. For this and for all, THANK you dad!
Second, of course we will conclude with a joyful song from Bambi, by Mr. Hicham el Hajj, recently highlighted on this blog (Yalla Nifrah or Let’s rejoice]. It is meant for you and for our dear relatives called variants of your name, with love. It is also meant for all the Tonys, Anthony, Antoine, and Antoinette of the world who will be perhaps reading this post one day [Nina, Bambi is thinking of Antoine now :)].
May everyone be safe, happy, and especially in touch with hope!
