***Eid Mubarak 1430 Hijrah***

I wish you ALL a very happy and peaceful Eid. May Allah accept your good deeds, forgive your transgressions and ease the suffering of all peoples around the globe.

This year I was very much anticipating the celebrations  primarily because Hazmy was away (duty calls!) majority of the Ramadhan month and was back 2 days before Eid.  Ramadhan for me this year was pretty much independent...i liked it that I was able to juggle the household independently but having him around always completed my day. I always had someone to talk to and to basically vent to about how my day went.  Though the little princess and I missed him alot while he was away, I figured that I'd better think positively and instead of focusing on him being away, I took it as quality time with little D.

So, Alhamdulillah everything went smoothly. Eid came and we went about our usual routine...This year somehow felt a bit more meaningful cause D understood it better...she is much braver and we told her that it is Hari Raya and she need to "salam" her elders. So she did with her version of the "Selamat Awi Raye" song...hehehehhe.

I reflected of how the year went and I believe that I too have grown a little over the year.  I have learned to be a lot more patient. It is tough not to be when you have a daughter in the terrible 2 stage. Sometimes you can't help but to expel some anger and frustration at life's challenges but overcoming them proves to be rewarding and worth the fight.  I came out of those challenges believing that you are tested for a reason...and you are tested by the Almighty cause He believes that you can overcome them and gain something from a situation. Alhamdulillah, I am so thankful for what He has showered us with.  He sure opened my eyes in the past year to a lot of insecurities and voids...He has allowed me to cross paths with acquaintances that confirms what I should grasp and hold on to in this journey...and believe me I do want to better myself so that I am able to be a good person, wife, mother, daughter and sister.

The Eid month also had me to witness if something was intended to be for a good cause, He will make it happen.  One of my dearest support system, tied the knot with a man that she knows would guide her righteously...I am so proud of her and her transformation.  I look up to her and I definitely want to be as guided as she is...Insya Allah. Wo, I am so happy for you and for what you are about to embark to in life.  I wish you every happiness and an abundance of love...

It was a good year...a year worth to be thankful for...sure, there are its dark episodes...but I am working hard at making that look up in the year to come...

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm
planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved
what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!
