Salam Alikom (Peace be with you) to all my Muslim readers and Hello to all my non-Muslim readers.

Yesterday's dessert.. Thanks Aisha, it was delicious.

Second of all, I am really happy I almost have 200 followers. It makes me happy that there are people out there who find my blog a little bit interesting and from time to time come and read what I have to say. :D Please comment and let me hear your thoughts, opinions and anything else you have on your mind. Let me get to know you, like you have gotten to know me. oxox's
Now, let's talk about being happy.
Have you ever asked yourself what real happiness is? I'm sure you have.. My mom always told me, "To find real happiness is within oneself." If you always only do everything for the sake of our Lord, then nothing can affect you, unless you let it. It would really change things in your life for the better. Anyone who chooses to be happy, can be happy. You don't have to have money to be happy; it doesn't matter, as long as you focus and know, no matter what, you can control how you feel.
Some things that make me happy are:
A house to call home
spending a lot of time with my family.
Living next door to my in laws.
talking to my dad
those one million calls back and forth with my best friends
Girlie get together s. <3 <3 <3 *the BEST*
seeing my son and daughter interact with each other <3 *what a great feeling*
hugs & kisses from my kids
My husband thanking me for being "me".
A message from one of my MSU sisters.. Just because.
seeing people happy.
Sweet messages on my bbm.
A cuddly puppy.
worshipping Allah (God)
The list can go on and on and on. Y'all get the picture?
When I am down and out I remember this list and I can't help but smile. Who can be sad when one is so truly blessed. Being blessed doesn't mean you have a million dollars in your pocket or a fancy schmancy car or you can get anything you want.
Being blessed is having, Allah (God) in your life and all that He has blessed you with. Having a great family/friends who love you for who you are. Having food on the table. That's what's being blessed is. If you're struggling with any of the above things, just know: God will not let you down. If you don't have the perfect family, know there is no such thing as a perfect family. We all have our struggles and faults and we have to overcome those struggles. How do we overcome them? The only way would be ask Allah (God) for help. That would be the ONLY way. No other way. Ask and you shall receive. He is the oft merciful. The compassionate. He is the one that I am living for. Let's all count our blessings. Be grateful. This is a reminder to myself and then to the rest of my sisters and brothers, out there in this big universe.
I want all my readers to know, the reason for me making this blog, is to put a smile on your face. When I do that, I'm happy. When I see my husband read my entries and he's smiling all the way through, that makes my heart happy. I feel like :))))))))))))
Know that anything you are going though, it will pass. Another door will open. Be sure of that.
Tell me, what are somethings that make you happy? I wanna know, I care. :))))))
Final whisper: take time to love yourself. BE HAPPY.
