Missed y'all... :) :) :)... Random post about different things.

mood: happy
craving: Colorado

First off, Salam Alykom to my new friends and followers!! I adore you already.  Make yourself at home. Comment and say hi to let me know you've been here! I promise I don't bite.. :) I might just bore y'all with little things in my life.  But, keep a open mind and know that my intentions are good. I want to make y'all laugh and think about life. Now, hurry up and get your favorite drink and snack and read a long. Come follow me through my happy days and my hardships. God's willing, more happy days than hardships.

Well, it's been a while since I've made my last entry. I keep getting emails from readers asking me when I'm going to make the next entry. Well, I've been very busy and hardly on the net these days. Life just makes me busy. Being a single parent isn't easy and I have to give more attention to my kids.. :) Alhamdulilah (thank you God). Today is Mother's day, as Muslims we don't celebrate this day, because every day is Mother's day for us.

Narrated Abu Huraira:
A man came to Allah’s Apostle and said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Who is more entitled to be treated with the best companionship by me?” The Prophet (pbuh) said, “Your mother.” The man said. “Who is next?” The Prophet said, “Your mother.” The man further said, “Who is next?” The Prophet said, “Your mother.” The man asked for the fourth time, “Who is next?” The Prophet said, “Your father. ”
(Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 2)
 So, everyday we celebrate Mother's day, not just one day out of the year. Mothers are important everyday. But, to all my non-muslim readers, Happy Mom's day to y'all and happy mom's day to your moms and grandmoms. :) So, that's the end to this subject. Let's talk about something else.. I feel like being random today. :) :) :)

I'm sure the way I feel these past months is the fact that I'm on my own with my two kids. Or maybe now im finding out what it's really like to be independent and not depend on anyone but myself. If you've heard that song Landslide by Stevie Nicks, it tells my story perfectly. 

Well I’ve been afraid of changing ‘cause I
Built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older, I’m getting older to

I've come to find out who  my 'true' friends are. I found that out fast. My two best friends are still in touch with me and have given me every excuse is to why I'm busy with my life here in Texas. I do have new friends here and have a lot of support from them. But, that doesn't mean I don't think of and miss my besties there in UAE.  It feels good to know that people don't turn the other cheek when you need them.

I'm also so thank full that God put Om Abdullah and Twizzle in my life. They have been there for me. Maybe we don't talk as much as we used to when I lived there in UAE, but none the less, they are there for me to talk to me and support me. All I have to do is pick the phone up and call and they will never question me for not keeping in touch as often. This is what a friendship consists of. Making excuses for each other and trying to put yourself in their shoes. I miss them and I know they miss me.

I just need to relax, and breathe. I just need to always think about that verse in our holy Quran.
For truly with hardship comes ease; truly with hardship comes ease. (Surat al-
Inshirah: 5-6)

It's coming and I can feel it. I always say, alhamdullah (thank you God) for everything you have put in my life. There's a reason why I'm here now, and not in UAE.  So, let me just relax and always have faith in God. There's always a light at the end of the tunnel. Optimism always helps; I'm actually happy with my life here. I'm very humbled and very thankful to Allah. Wow, this post is all over the place. Just writing down my feelings and listening to My Best Friend's Wedding on the TV in the back ground.. LOL

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little pray for you
While combing my hair now,
And wondering what dress to wear now,
I say a little prayer for you

Forever, and ever, you'll stay in my heart
and I will love you
Forever, and ever, we never will part
Oh, how I love you
Together, forever, that's how it must be
To live without you
Would only mean heartbreak for me.
That's what they're singing now. It goes perfect with my mood.

Hmmm what to talk about now... I've been typing this entry for hours (got busy with kids) and coming back and forth putting my 2 cents here and there. Taking phone calls from close friends and laughing with my kids, makes a perfect day. I'm sure later on one of my closest friends will come on by, as she does almost every day. I always await our conversations. It makes my days and nights a lot better.

So, here's to friendship and mothers. May God always bring good in my life and let me smile everyday and laugh everyday and most of all, think of Allah every day ameen

final whisper: even if you think I don't care for you, I still do and always will. I miss those nights singing with you on the phone and just acting silly. I miss you and love you still.

Asalamu Alaykum,

Alhamdullah you finally made a post and as you can tell I come to check on you often. I'm happy you have a lot of good people around you that love and support you MashAllah. May Allah subhana wa taala protect you and your beautiful children, Always. I'm sure your Dad wont take "No" for an answer and will still buy you at least a Mothers day cupcake. <3

As salaamu alaikum Sis - thanks for the update. I often think of that ayah when things are difficult and it always gives me hope. I've even shared it with an elder family member, and it brought them comfort as well.

Sending much warmth, love and du'a.

Because life is beautiful.
