craving: a nice big juicy apple
Salam Alikom to my sisters in Islam and a big to all my non-muslim followers and readers....
Years go by so fast and you look back and can't believe where the time went. I did that today. I looked at my daughter and was shocked to have seen the date and remember sixteen years ago, I was due with my precious little girl. I'm happy to say, in these almost (5 more days) sixteen years, she has been the best little thing that has happened to me. She's my daughter, best friend, helper. I'm very blessed.
She seizes to amaze me everyday of her life. Her bright smile and even her corny ways make my heart skip a beat. She's gentle, kind and so very shy and at the same time, she knows who she is and knows what she wants in life. She makes me proud. She's adapted so very well here in UAE, as she says, goes with the flow.
Since, as Muslims,we don't celebrate birthdays, and never have since I've become a Muslim, there will be no party for her. But, that doesn't mean that I don't thank God for her. I thank Him every single day while I pray and while I'm making dua though out the day (supplicating.) Birthdays are over-rated anyways; a lot of times even your closest family members forget the date you were born, and you end up feeling really bad, just like other holidays.
May God bless my daughter every single day of her life and give her a good life, let her grow up worshiping our Rubb and let her be the best Muslimah she can be ameen
final whisper: I love you, baby girl
