I now wear a ring. It has Mona’s name on it. THIS IS BIG!


In Egyptian Developers Conference (EDC) 2008 this April, my geek network noticed a very nice, cute, and sweet little girl with me that I was very proud to introduce not just as one of the cleverest developers in SilverKey, but also as my life mate, my fiancée. Not sure if any of you noticed that by then, although being engaged, we were not wearing rings, yet!

Well, WE DID FEW HOURS AGO! Yes, I now wear a ring with Mona’s name on it. What a pleasure that is? To understand, you just need to meet her once. I’ll try to give a VERY limited summary of it.

Getting deep into the picture

Mona is a solid geek who just “gets it” when it comes to C# 3.0, jQuery or ASP.NET MVC and all this patterns stuff. That’s easy to guess about my fiancée and is very true about Mona. However, this is a VERY MINOR great thing about her, and didn’t get much of my attention because it is one of near infinity (at least I’m discovering new great thing every other situation/talk). Besides being so smart and having this great look that makes you feel so calm and comfortable when seeing her, she also has a TRUE pure soul that accepts no harm to anybody on earth and perfectly matches her soft but not easily to be broken nature. Somehow, she merges all this with such a cool nature with a great sense of humor, all this with a very admirable respect to herself being a moderate Muslim.

She has an impossible combination of great talents, skills and natures that I only mentioned the very basic ones of. You can add to that impressing wisdom, talk about a hundred type of kindness, or go talk about the sweetness that shows in every movement or word that comes out of her. I’d dedicate a series of blog posts to talk about each of her greatness as I “mentally” measure them vs. tons of other people I met in my life, counting males and females of all ages, starting at age 8 and above (say in cuteness/sweetness, …) going through 20s to 40s (say in beauty and humor, …) to 50s and counting (say in kindness and wisdom, …). This got me to a conclusion that such person is very rare to happen to exist in the entire world not just in my life.

The Big Pre-Event

So, now that such a rare existing person accepted to spend the rest of her life with such a normal guy whose only good thing is being just another geek of thousands around the world and in Egypt, that is something that makes me so proud.

Having the symbol of it in her hand having my name on it is a true charm that will help me wait the months it takes till we are married and living in the same house. Another wonderful thing is that I now “wear her name” in my hand represented by the ring that has just few hours ago got into my right hand and will hopefully soon move to the left one.

Thank you very much, Mona, for showing yourself in my life. Thank you way more for accepting sharing your valuable life with me. This is the favor of my entire lifetime. I know I cannot reward you for it whatever I do, so, all promise is to still try my best.

I love you, my little sweet cute smart girl.

Thanks again.
