I’ve been told a million times by several people (family, friends and colleagues that I tend to take the weight of this world on my shoulders. Marrying the boss redefined responsibility. For the first time in my life I did not want to ‘think’ about each and everything happening around me and wanted to just go with the flow. Even though I dont bombard him with ‘all’ of my ‘thoughts’….i do always know he’s ‘there’..its such a relief..phew.
However at the same time, he is the only ‘being’ ‘matter’ (i cant come up with a word) I felt responsible for…and now…………………. i already feel I am a mother…my mind fast forwards its self a couple of months and I visualize my life with MY family (inshAllah). Its beautiful beyond imagination (I also see responsibility taking new shapes and forms)…I’m going back to sleep.
I have been told that i was born at around 9 am today…
My mother decided to keep me despite me being a life threat to her…
Marriage has made me an extremely thankful person…its like I was already living a fairy tale life and now I also have my own prince charming..I’m truly indebted to Allah for bestowing me a life full of love and achievements.
p.s This special birthday has fallen on a Friday…fav day of the week…yay.
A house is a house is a house - until love comes through the door, that is. And love intuitively goes around sprinkling that special brand of angel dust that transforms a house into a very special home for very special people: your family.
Money, of course, can build a charming house, but only love can furnish it with a feeling of home.
Duty can pack an adequate sack lunch, but love may decide to tuck a little love note inside.
Obligation can cook a meal, but love embellishes the table with a potted ivy trailing around slender candles.
Duty writes many letters, but love tucks a joke or a picture or a fresh stick of gum inside.
Compulsion keeps a sparkling house. But love and prayer stand a better chance of producing a happy family.
Duty gets offended quickly if it isn’t appreciated. But love learns to laugh a lot and to work for the sheer joy of doing it.
Obligation can pour a glass of milk, but quite often love will add a little chocolate."
1. Woke up to one of the sweetest e-mails.
1. Made it to work ‘before’ 9am
2. Got offered my very own research assistant…. i.e Some one ’ I ’ can exploit!
wont be able to use the offer but still..this is big.
3. Worked for 6 amazing productive hours…no interruptions.
4. Had one of my favorite guests over at home
5. Managed to put the baby in the house to sleep when no one could handle him.
6. It rained!
and in all the times in between…the texts/calls/thoughts of my boss were enough to keep me upbeat.
Going to bed in a physically and mentally drained state :D
One word: Alhumdulilah!
The three most important things I’ve learnt from abu are humility, respect and kindness...always saw him treat the younger ones and the less fortunate ones in the best possible manner..
He has never forced/ordered us to do anything, always just ‘suggested’ or ‘advised’.Ive just always seen him set an example..and then he watches us follow in his foot steps…n that is what i call parenting..setting the best possible example…creating the best possible little versions of your own self.
