It seemed just like yesterday I wrote about the March madness. And now suddenly it becomes quiet July! Talk about being human - never satisfied with whatever they have. If it's madness you want it quiet, if it's quiet you wish it to be not so quiet. What is it that you really want??
Ramadhan was over, now it's Syawal. This Syawal will mark the first Syawal of us not having a kampung house to go back to. We went back to kampung but stayed in a hotel. How pathetic is that? With the passing of my beloved brother last December, our kampung house was turned into an Orphanage. It was the wish of our late parents for the house to be turned into such should my brother passed away. Alhamdulillah the house is now being prepared and will be in operation next month. Nevertheless, we managed to have a blast Hari Raya... And managed to see all our relatives.
Now school has started and our normal routine is back. The only thing is that, there are less two people in the house. Irsyad as finally enrolled in college, the college that he wanted so much. Alhamdulillah. Eussuv is way up north in the boarding. That left just the four of us, Mom, Dad, Kakak and Adik. Ohhhh it's such a quiet house. I'm beginning to wonder how is it with families with only one child, surely it's a quiet one too and I'm sure they are used to it. Perhaps I shouldn't complain. I thank Allah for all the moments I have with my family, near and far. I should be much more thankful to Allah for all the things in life. For the health of my family members, for all the luxuries in life, enough food and clothes.
In Ramadhan alone, I heard of two sudden passing of friends' husbands who were at the peak of their lives, young and successful. Reminds me again to be thankful for the life that I have now. Reminds me too of how fragile life is, it can be taken away anytime. Subhanallah.
Hopefully we will have a more meaningful moments and productive months for the rest of the year. In shaa Allah. Enough unnecessary ramblings..
