He's one in a million.......

mood: wishy washy
craving: hugging my father

It's been a long time since seeing my father. The last time I seen him, was June 8th, 2002. Ya, that's too long. My dad has always been very strict with us. At the time I didn't understand, but now I do. I thank him for that. He never let me go to Mexico with my girlfriends, nor to the prom, but all those times I cried my self to sleep at night, not understanding what he was trying to do, all makes so much sense now. I thank him now.

He called us tonight and I talked to him a long time. He wished my daughter a happy birthday and told me to wish my son the same. Since my baby boy and girl are 14 yrs and 1 day apart.  He sounded very lonely for some reason. I felt so sad when we hung up. I just wanna sit and talk to him forever. I wanna laugh with him and act silly with him. He's so funny, yet so loving and caring. I just wanna see him.

My husband talked to him tonight, and asked him to come here. Of course my father and brother and little sister wouldn't have to worry about anything. My husband just told him to go to the airport and the tickets would be waiting, that's all he would have to do.  I know my father won't fly and he hates it. But, I really have faith that God will put it in his heart to come see us soon. I want him to see my world. I want him to know that I am okay. I want him to meet my family and see just how I live. I want to introduce him to this culture. He would be surprised when he comes here (he would love it). I want to see him hug my daughter and see him hold my son and kiss my son. I have tears in my eyes now from thinking about it. I wish he would move here, so I can take care of him, as he took care of me and my siblings all those years.

"Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that ye be kind to parents. Whether one or more attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor. And out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say, "my Lord! bestow on them Thy Mercy, even as they cherished me in childhood." (Quran 17: 23,24)

final whisper: I just want your smile and I just want your hugs and I want to hear your voice all the time. one day without you, is like a million years.

*hugs* Maybe you should show him this entry for him to realize exactly how much you miss him? I admit it made me tear up reading this. I hope your wish comes true and God willing we'll find a post here about his visit. :-)

I really hope that you get to see your dad and the rest of your family very soon! Even so, your love for them is evident.


Twizzle said...

awww inshaAllah y'all will get to see him soon!!

inshaAllah for now y'all can go see him back in Texas and in the future he will come to UAE to see y'all :)

Your father loves you so much I know!! And I love the advice he gives you all the time! He is wonderful MashaAllah!

I can't wait until our new home is built and then we will invite our family here inshaAllah. I would love for my nieces and nephew to spend maybe a year or two here and go to school here. Like my sisters and I went to Japan to live with our grandparents and to go to school for a couple of years.

Awwwwwwwwww sweetheart, I could feel the bond between you and your father while reading this wonderful post! Habebti Insha'allah you will get to see him, hug him, kiss him adn talk to him very soon!

It is amazing how stronger the bond growns between father and daughter as time goes by! I feel this way with my dad, he is my life and I cannot imagine a day would go by without higging him and kissing him and feeling his warmth close to my heart.

May Allah bless your father with health and happiness and togetherness sweetie.

Love you

Wa Alaykum Salam,

Ahh, your post just made me sad.:( InshaAllah he can come to the UAE and spend some time with you guys. 8years? Wow! I don't know how you did it... Any plans to visit the US? I often dream about going back and seeing my family again. I wish you all the best and inshaAllah he can visit you all soon and go back home knowing his daughter lives a good and healthy life with a wonderful family "Somewhere" in the Middle East. :)

Assalamu'alaykum sister,

This post really touched my heart. I guess because it came from your heart though.

Sad to hear about you missing your dad. If traveling is not possible. Could you possibly get your siblings to teach him how to use a computer, of course if he doesn't already know, and communicate via the messenger chat. I'm sure it would help you both so much.

I've communicated with people like that in the past, it's almost like they are there with you. You'd also be able to chat more often than just talking on the telephone.

take care sister,

Umm AbdulRahman

Mimisha said...

Because life is beautiful.
