Here's wishing everyone a very Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri Maaf Zahir dan batin.
Alhamdulillah.. I'm having a blast with my family and insyaALLAH I will be meeting my old friends from my Convent days this afternoon. I surely would not be able to recognize some of them and them me! Hahaa...
So far... Alhamdulillah.
I had been missing a few people of course especially my beloved arwah.
I visited his grave at noon of the first raya as it was raining in the morning..
Minmin wanted some flowers for her Abah.. So I bought her whatever that was on sale over there.
We put some pink carnations and cleaned what was necessary over there.
Made some doas and we went home...
At nite I went to my in laws, ate some laksa my mom-in-law made. The kids really enjoyed themselves. Apart from getting some duit raya, what they liked most was of course meeting and playing with their cousins. I still could not go into the room we shared a lot of time cuddling up watching dvds or just talked and joked around. I really miss him.
It was surely a very full 1st day of Raya.. Full with activities and full of food to the stomach!
I slept quite early that night... Slept like a log. Phone calls ke apa ke semua missed.. Hehe.
Furthermore, I couldn't sleep until 3.30am the night before raya.
Thank you for some blogger friends with your private Raya wishes for me and my family.
I'm feeling blessed... Alhamdulillah.
But of course, tengah2 happy.. We have to remember those who are not so lucky to have everyone around or going through calamities in whatever form it maybe. To those who have everything... Alhamdulillah, for all that HE had given us.
Yang Raya sorang like my friend in Melbourne tu, like another friend in Seremban with only his mom, and a few friends with their sick loved ones...
Shasha... Take care dear, I doa your mom is doing well with her chemo and Kak Linda with your mom as well. I have yet to meet Kak Linda... InsyaALLAH we will meet up soon since you have a few questions regarding your mom.
I have come to terms with life as it is. I just pray that as I am moving forward ALLAH will grant me peace and tranquility that I need and the strength to go through what I have to go through with a lot of patience and may ALLAH show me the right path. I have also learnt to ignore many unnecesary worries and slanders from many angles...! Sometimes, I have to be careful when I want to give a helping hand and I have to remember that I am a single mom.
Oh.. That reminds me of my classmate Ray who will be running at Leadville, USA... A 100 mile run and climb over the mountains! I really envy him. He had me rekindled my passion for running again by getting me to be his running buddy in Nike 10km run a couple of years ago. But.. Of course, I had to train to run again but I will never beat him to his records. With my broken knee cap.. I am quite a 'cripple' nowadays. I hope he will succeed in all his undertakings and may he find someone new to walk along his side in this wonderful world. (sorry Ray.. saja usik you)
Anyhow, after this Raya, I have to start training for my next adventure...!
May ALLAH bless us all with rahmahs and I pray that we will meet the next Ramadhan... Amin.
To all my friends in Malaysia and all over the world here's wishing you all a very blessed Hari Raya Aidilfitri..
Maaf zahir dan batin..
Be happy as always and thank you for the support and all.
Thank you for all the words of encouragement in your comments..
HH and kids..
