I did! I had lunch on Tuesday with Superman's Mom!
|Superman & his Mom, Hoda|
A superhero in her own right & I'll tell you why!
A beautiful young girl, private school, and a privileged life.
|Mike & Hoda|
Love at first sight, for both ...
Hoda met and married the love of her life,
Zuheir (Mike), also a super hero.
|Zuheir (Mike), Tarek & Hoda|
They started on their family ...
|Hoda, Tarek & Bassel|
and decided to immigrate to the US in 1977.
Hoda would need to go ahead as Mike needed to finish his job,
and would follow in two months.
|Bassel, Hoda & Tarek|
I ask you, can you imagine boarding a plane across the planet,
with 6 year old Tarek & 3 year old Bassel and
Hoda was 6 months along with son #3,
for an 10 hour flight from Germany?
Zuheir had accompanied his growing family
on the first 6 hour fight from Abu-Dhabi to Germany.
Once landed in the US, Hoda had to find a home,
furnish a home, all while pregnant, and she did.
Give birth to Jimmy when Mike arrived. Superhero big time.
Later when times were tough she worked 2 jobs & sold Avon.
Family always came first, Hoda is an devoted Mom.
|Tarek, Mike, Bassel & Jimmy|
An amazing family with a strong bond.
Legacy of a SuperMom and SuperWife.
Hoda and Mike will celebrate 50 years next year.
I learned so many great stories over a beautiful lunch today.
Did I mention she is a terrific cook?
I will share more of her family stories in the future.
Please stay tuned.
A smile for Wednesday ...
