She'll always be beautiful in my eyes.





When I looked outside my window this morning, I remembered her, I remembered her peaceful smile, her contagious laugh.
This is dedicated to my beloved Mother, whom I miss terribly! She passed away almost 20 years ago, and though it seems only like yesterday, I feel as though it has been forever since I last saw her beautiful face.
I miss her smile, 
her embrace,
her voice,
her wisdom,
her loving touch, and everything else I could think of and relate to her, and only her.
I now have my mothers strength, she is my smile, and the center of my universe. She is why I am who I am. You taught me the meaning of feeling free, beautiful, and happy. I miss you.

Final Whisper: Her love never seized to amaze me.

I've missed y'all.





It's been over 2 years since I've even written on my escape from the world. I missed y'all. I'm still living in Texas and living day by day. I hope everyone in the blog world is doing great. Here's a little piece I wrote. I hope y'all like it. 


If you feel that you're very down. Just close your eyes and say, "This is my journey. He puts me here. It's HIS plan. So, I have to carry on and trust HIM." Thank YOU God.

My love

mood: missing my son
craving: to hold him

Salam alykom and hello to all my faithful followers. It's a beautiful Sunday today and Im out in my garden soaking up the sun, watching my son play. I hope everyones been well. On to my entry.



I'm missing you today and everyday. As the wind blows through my hair and sun gleams on my face, I think of how you would be at this age. I think of what your voice would sound like, your walk and just your presence. I know this was for the best, yet I long to hold you close and make you feel safe in my arms like I make your siblings feel. We love you without knowing you. I long to feel your little arms wrapped around my waist and can't wait to feel that in the Hereafter. A mother's love is the strongest love below God's. We thank God for all and accept His destiny. Mubarak, until I see your face, I'll long for you. I love you. 

Love,

Your mother

Final whisper: missing you everyday.

Living like a stranger

Mood: happy
Craving: big red

Nothing stays the same. This last weekend was pretty nostalgic. While we were getting stuff in wal-mart for my famous briyani, I looked around at all the unfamiliar faces (every once in a while, I thought I saw a couple of people I recognized from back in the day) and honestly all the faces I saw there were just were unrecognizable and that kinda made me sad. There was a time where I could walk into wal-mart, or any store in Del Rio, and recognize everyone I talked to and it was enough if I just waved hello! It was enough that at least once a week I'd see those faces smile back at me. Now the people are from other places, not natives of del rio and are just passing by for a couple of years. Who said Del Rio never changes? I don't agree. If you lived out of Del Rio for the amount of time I did and went back you would know that it sure has changed. I take these words from my religion:

`Abdullah bin `Umar narrated:

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) took hold of my shoulders and said, “Be in this life as a stranger or a passerby.” (Al-Bukhari)

If we are in the life as a stranger, a lot of things we go through wouldn't hurt us as much as they do. We would know we are only here for a short time and are just here to worship God and God alone. With that comes clairity and being obiediant to our Creator's wants for us. I'll be the first to admit, I'm not the most religious person in the world, but I know enough to want to please our Creator and to want to live in the gardens of paradise with my loved ones. Del Rio will always be a place where my heart will stay and with that said, I never want to have that feeling leave. All of you who still live in Del Rio and those of you who have moved away to make a beautiful family, will always be close to my heart. At one point and time, y'all made me laugh, cry or just made memories for me to look back on and smile, and thats what I will never forget. 



Final Whisper: God bless Del Rioans. I was just a small girl passing by at the age of 8 and left at age 29, only to return 15 years later. God has really blessed my life with y'all and my new friends from all over the world.

None but ourselves can free our minds

mood: content
craving: to sit in the desert with a big camp fire

As I sit here wondering where my life will take me, I always like to go where my surroundings will mimic where I love and where I want to be again.  I pray day and night that i'll end up in the country that I love and loved me right back. Someday, someday. It's already been four years and it seems like an eternity, but the reasons  I'm back in my country, all make perfect sense now.

As the music gets louder, my thoughts about my future grow stronger. Listening to people speak the beautiful Arabic language, I remember so foundly my past years in UAE. Am I just in a dream now, will someone have to pinch me to wake up so I can just leave the life I had? Nah, it's okay. I've gotten a lot better in my judgement of picking what I want and actually, I do know what I want now. Thank you forties & of course Allah's mercy. 


Thank God for all His blessings He's  bestowed upon my kids and I. I thank Him for giving me the best father ever and my sister and best friends who are always there to comfort me in hard time. I believe whole heartlty that when the time is right, my other half will be better than Ive ever had. It's all about belief and faith, and I have that. 

final whisper: “… and My Mercy embraces all things.” [7:156]

Live in the now..

mood: I'm back... OMG, its been almost 2 years! :o
craving: chocolate

A Big, Big  Salam Alykom and a Big, Big hello to all my followers out there. I know it's been a very long time, but as I always say, life happens and we gotta deal with it. But, I've missed y'all and I hope y'all missed me. :) 

On to my first post in forever... God bless y'all.

The other day I got asked if I was married, and if I was looking for something serious. I told this person.
I welcome anything great into my life, worry about nothing or finding anyone, they'll come when God brings him in my life... I live in the moment, truly in the moment.
By living in the moment we cherish life so much more. Bottom line is, my faith over rides any hardships, concerns, and worries that come my way. Live in the now.

Pay it forward.. :)

mood: relaxed 
craving: tomorrow :) seeing my dad and taking him to lunch, he lives 30 min away from us now and we hardly see him. I can't wait to hug him and feel safe in his arms.. :) 

A great big SALAM ALYKOM AND HELLO to all my followers out there. I missed y'all. :)  I've been so busy getting my life in order ( a great thing) I just haven't had any time to get on the net. Aside from my busy life, I'm GREAT! Thank God. How's everyone doing? I hope y'all are great and keeping your faith high. I really miss writing, it's such a great therapy for me. In these 4 months a lot happened to me and I'm in such a good place in my life now. Alhamdulilah.

 My dad had four strokes in one week in June and I've given my all to helping him recover. May God guide him, ameen..

To all the haters sending me hate mail out there: please stop hating, it's such a waste of energy and time. Be happy and live life.

“There is no such thing as can’t.” Christopher Reeve

It's funny I've been divorced for over 2 yrs and I'm happy I didn't fall into the high percentage of getting married again after my divorce. I truly believe that you should be single for a while after a divorced. You should find yourself. How can someone get married so fast after a divorce? Well, this is my opinion  :) I love being single, I get to spend a lot of time with my kids and not have to worry about having to answer to anyone. But, with that said, I ask Allah to bring someone in my life who will be with me for the rest of my life and is a good Muslim and completes my life. Ameen



I've done stuff in these 4 months that I've never done in my life. Wow, it feels great!!! It feels great to be so independent and to take care of my kids with no one's help! It feels awesome. You single mamas out there, y'all can do it! If I could, y'all could.. :) NO worries, leave everything with Allah and do what you can to get ahead and have faith. Faith moves mountains. I have an amazing group of friends (sisters) here and they have really been there for me and of course my sisters (blood sisters) have been totally awesome. I can't thank them enough! My kids and I now live in our own place and I work and I'm loving every single bit of the (ease part of my life now). Verily with every hardship, comes ease. Yeahhhhh... It's all about FAITH & patience... :) Ok, ok. I'll stop now, I'm sure y'all are bored listening to me. I just wanted to up date y'all and give y'all some inspiration and love. Now, on to my short and sweet entry.


Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might
be the only sunshine he sees all day.


Have y'all every paid it forward? Meaning, given to people for the sake of God? Well, all I can say is it's awesome. It all started 4 months ago, I met this one AMAZING person and let me tell you, I will continue to pray for her the rest of my life and will never forget her. She came into my life at a great time and since then, I have take all her advice and moved ahead in my life and not looking back. I started practicing what she taught me and all I can say is, WOW! pay it forward..

The expression "pay it forward" is used to describe the concept of asking the beneficiary of a good deed to repay it to others instead of to the original benefactor.

Do something nice for someone you don't know (or don't know very well). It should be something significant, and not for a person from whom you expect a good deed -- or anything at all, for that matter -- in return.

I won't tell y'all what I've done, I feel that's between me and God. But, all I can say is,  Pay it forward and do it solely for the sake of God. I've been doing this and the blessings I've gotten has totally filled my world with ease and more love than I have ever had in my life. Thank you God for everything you bring in my life. I look back on my life and I've had such an amazing life and I'm blessed and I never regret one thing I've done. God put everything in my life for a reason and I embrace it and hold it next to my heart. 

“Together we can change the world, one good deed at a time.”

final whisper; “Sail beyond the horizon; fly higher than you ever thought possible; magnify your existence by helping others; be kind to people and animals of all shapes and sizes; be true to what you value most; shine your light on the world; and be the person you were born to be.”


Because life is beautiful.
