Happy the day you were born,
That day the Angles got together because they knew,
They knew that human being would go beyond craziness,
They knew that the humanity needed someone,
Someone who would give Love and will not let her ego role on her,
Each one of them offered a color to this exceptional being,
And so, she would always carry the color of rainbow in her...
They said,<Her name will be Fariba, and the only people who can see the rainbow in Fariba, will be those who are not rolled by their ego!>,
So, pretty Fariba was born,
Full of Love,
Full of conviction for Love,
Full of sacrifices,
Fariba became a daughter,
A fantastic daughter,
Fariba became a sister,
A sister full of Love and joy,
With the gift of Humor...
Fariba you got married,
And had to leave your beloved family for a new country, new everything...
For the one who becomes the center of your attention and love,
Your dear husband Ahmad...
Then, your lovely kids, Faranak & Amin...
Fariba you managed to handle egos...
Teach your kids Love & Sincerity,
Make of your house, a home full of hope, hospitality, Love and laughter...
Fariba my sister,
My dear Angle of Angels,
Thanks to be in this world of egos,
Egos who might have hard time to see Rain-bow,
Egos who think that all is only about money...
Thanks for insisting by your generosity and trust that money is only a tool and not the absolute happiness...
I rarely met in my life an ego-free Manger Angel of Angles...!
And so funny and creative!
With such a good memory, especially the numbers.
From my part, I thank you for all your help and encouragements,
For funny stories that you made up and made me laugh so much,
And of course for all the phone-numbers that I ask you for,
And each time you give me again and again...
Thanks for caring about all of us who are sometimes like butterflies,
Who need to be more disciplined,
Because, discipline is so necessary for success...
Your presence in an event is absolutly necessary,
Your sens of timing, your 3D brain, your artistic talents,
And your Love for passing every single one whom you love so much before you is just incredible...
I hope that all of those who have had you in their lives,
Could understand how much sacrifice you have done for all of us,
You love with no condition,
You follow your convictions even if you need to face one of your dear family<s ego,
You stand up and insist until your beloved ones accept the Truth,
You prefer being truthful rather than lying to your beloved ones...
Sisi, I love you,
With an endless appreciation for what you have done for all ...
And I am proud of what you accomplished in your life by mananging your sweet family so wonderfully,
Encouraging Ahmad to success in his buisness & paintings,
Offering to Franank & Amin the best education ,
While nourishing them with the Truth of Love and Discipline...
We love you all and hope that all of you will be always healthy physically and mentally because the rest, you have them!
I believe in you and will listen to you any time you have a gift of Truth for me to hear!
Your sister, Shahrzad
