One year ago today

I woke up a little bit early today. As usual, first thing in the morning...Facebook!

I had 6 notifications, one of them is my memories for February 28. I saw last year post and I was like: Yeah, I remember this. I remember the old woman who was helping her "Khello" crossing the street of Hamra after stopping the car for him. I remember her love and compassion. I was so touched I shared what she said on Facebook.
Actually, I remember this day in details.
I didn't sleep and had to go to the hairdresser early before my class. My hairdresser Mansour, a hard worker Syrian refugee, came at 7:00 AM in the morning just to help me. How can I forget this? Mansour doesn't live in Lebanon anymore. He left. I would call him to say Thank you again if I have his number.

I went then to my class. My students showed empathy on that day even though I didn't mention I was tired. I can't remember if it was a Microsoft Word class or Excel but I can remember well they made me smile with their comments and offers for food.

I also remember I made my friend angry on that day without meaning it. She told me that two days later:
-  You made me angry Soha.
- I am sorry I didn't mean it.
Anyway, we're not talking now. It's been two months and I miss her.

Back to that day. I remember I decided to have lunch alone. Me, myself and I. Best thing when you're drained and you can't even think.
In the evening, I had to attend Charbel Rouhana Concert with my friend and his fiancé who's visiting Beirut. I remember I promised to take her to 24x7, the famous shop in Hamra, to have some chocolates. But, they were late so I went to buy her chocolates alone. I was happy to see her on that day. We didn't meet since then.
Back! I couldn't attend the whole concert. I left early, went back home and slept!

It was on my way to 24x7 when I saw "Khello" and his beautiful wife who made me write a simple post...The reason why I am remembering all this, and wondering what type of memories I will make today.
