Blog 28072013

finally, got the chance to blog before my terawih prayers. it’s been awhile since i met any friends of mine besides our (super) short Sydney Trip to watch Manchester United game with a bunch of Melburnians. Insya Allah soon.

3 weeks left before we pack our bags for our well deserved break! well MINE especially. These few weeks has been planning, booking and paying for our flights and accomodations. Took us a few weeks to finally decide where we are going to stay. Now, we have to come up with itinerary for our trips which we both anticipate and love spending hours planning!

Finally sent out all our Eid postcards to family and friends! Very excited. Still received a few texts asking why we needed their addresses and how old school it is to still be sending out Eid cards. Well, some traditions are best kept! For me personally, sending out greeting cards for Eid adds to the joyous occasion.

I kept a promise to myself, that Eid next year we would fly back and spend it with my family nonetheless. I owe it to them big time especially my parents. Life is short. Got to treasure it as much as we could.

Next up: Disney on Ice!

Pain

SubhanAllah, whatever pain we suffer in this life is not in vain. It is not
wasted. We may cry and wince and groan over small pains, but Allah sees our
suffering and will compensate us more than we can imagine, as long as we
are patient and keep faith in Him. Allah the Most High has a plan for us,
and He is the best of planners. We must have faith in Him and His plan for
us.
