I know this is rather late, and for that, I apologize. But I want to express my sincere condolences to you over the loss of your mother. I admire the strength and courage you show in every one of your posts about this issue.

As an aside, I love reading your posts about Judaism.. keep it up :)

Megan: It's not late. I'm in the thick of it. In fact it's worse now than in the first month. So I appreciate your condolences very much. Thank you. I'm glad you like the posts about Judaism--in turn, I'm interested in your posts about Islam. From what you've said about Ramadan, it seems like you converted to Islam, rather than being born into it. Is that accurate? If so, I'm a convert too! I converted to Judaism in 1999.

Megan

Yes, actually, I did convert and rather recently at that! It's nice to know other converts. The experience of converting seems to be an isolating one at first.

I think it can be, and I found that it took some time before I felt completely Jewish. And then there's the ongoing interfaith stuff with relatives (my family is all Christian--mainline Protestant). Hey, you know you've been having a discussion with my husband Mike over on your blog! Funny. Not so weird, I guess, because he found you through my blog, which he's obligated to read. :)
