We're okay......

mood: reflective
craving: late night ice cream....Ben & Jerry's, Red velvet cake?  :) :) :)


Be you. Find you. Be happy with that.

Laying here on my bed with my kids is heaven to me. The funniest things come out of my three year old's mouth. He often tells me, "I love you, mama. I love you, a lot." He affectionately kisses my cheek and holds my face close to his. I can feel his breath on me and he stares at me as if he's just studying every part of my face. These moments I spend with my two most precious babies, is priceless. I can't even begin to explain how my world is amazing. Just as long as I have them in my life, I'm alright. I  get teary when I think of my daughter starting university in a few years. I warn her and say, "Make room for your brother and I." She laughs and says, "Mommmmmm." I can't let her go. How could I? Everything that has happened in this one year, can make a sane person crazy. But, I never thought I would be typing an entry here so soon telling everyone, "Yes, we're okay. We really are." A lot has happenend since June and I can't wait for the endless possiblites of it getting better. God is good and He truly knows what His slaves can and can't handle. Alhamdulillah (thank you God) .

I love y'all to the moon and back

My kids are my rocks and they make me realize everyday, that life is good. Listening to my son day after day laugh and smile and playing with his little cars, makes my heart beat faster and it over flows with love. Listening to my daughter laughing with my son and teaching him stuff also makes my heart over flow. There's something about cuddling with them in bed and laughing and just hugging them both, that makes me feel that life is really a big blessing. It's the simple things in life that always bring a smile to my face.




final whisper: So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.

Lovely! I don't have children yet but seeing my friends children growing up, playing, smiling, taking my hands always melt my heart and I can only feel the joy of new beginnings and the amazing power of love.

I am glad you and your children are fine and that hardship times are behind. Enjoy every of these precious moments.
Take care.

How sweet. ^_^
I can't wait to have a family so I can feel what you're feeling. When you know you have family, you can survive anything.

I've been reading your posts by the way. Just haven't gotten around to commenting. You're a strong woman and such a loving mother. God bless your sweet heart.

The little moments mean a lot.

Also, when the kids grow up and become independent, You have this blog post as a beautiful reminder that they also treasured the moments with us.

Did I say Ramadan Kareem already?
May Allah bless you and yours.
