Alhumdulilah, Im truly blessed to have been married to the boss for over a year now. This year has literally flown by due to activities such as work, wedding preparations, starting our life together, partying post wedding, traveling and baby making.
Having spent a very independent life as compared to most average females around me (thanks to my father), I couldn’t really imagine what completely depending on a man would be like. Being married to the boss has made me feel how beautiful it is to be dependent on a husband for one’s emotional and physical health, for love, affection, finances, security and SO much more. Moreover I just wasn’t grown up to ever feel helpless dependent, sensitive, and emotional…but my husband has made me all that. His love has made me all that. Being in love does make one weak towards a particular person. When you see a man truly holds himself responsible of you and your child(ren in future ia)..although his parents keep telling me he will never grow up :) it just melts your heart. Well what can I say when I have never found him neglect any need of mine.
I’m at loss of words to describe how thankful I am to Allah for choosing this man for me and how grateful I am to my husband for everything he does to keep me happy . As I write this in our hotel in Prague (while the boss is away at work), tears drip down my eyes just thinking of our life together this past year. Alhumdulilah my husband really gave me a fairytale life this year.
P.S I got the most beautiful early morning flowers, the cutest cards, and classy Tommy Hilfiger goodies from the boss for the anniversary. And now this wonderful trip to Prague (such a great city)!!!!…Just when I was getting overwhelmed by the physical and mental challenges of this pregnancy and feeling like a not so newly married bride…the boss gave me an episode of being genuinely pampered.
May Allah bless him with the very best of both the worlds.Aameen.

There are certain situations in life when all your eggs are actually just in one basket. Tawakul(faith) plays a fundamental role in preventing chaos in our lives. The people who help us in the difficult times are just a part of Allah’s mechanism in easing our difficulties. What truly benefits us during the tough times are patience and prayer. Look up to no one but Allah.
— anon..why would you say that?? :P on a serious note…i do get the point..good one.
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.
