Tonight will be our last night here.....
I looked around, packed boxes, windows with no more maroon curtains, walls with no more picture frames, tables with no more flower vase.
I am sad, this house has so much memories, good and bad, scary and funny, but most importantly it was our first house straight after marriage. We settled for a 4 room corner unit with a small size while most of my friends went straight to 5 rooms. I remember one friend told me her house was an Executive! and all I did was told myself to sabar and I just want my house to be blessed and not be a heavy load to us newly-weds.
It was where both my babies came home to and it was where we had a grand maulid led by Habib Abbas and his maulid group.
I loved the bomb shelter, the plasma TV, the white windows and the proximity to the interchange and mosques but I hated the size, the odd shape of the rooms and the plain interior. I
guess know I forgot to be thankful sometimes.
To be positive, I have to call this a Hijrah (migration) instead of just Pindah (moving house).
This Hijrah means much to me and hubby.
We've worked hard, we want to see our kids grow up in a comfortable manner, with study tables and an area where they can relax and read, and be closer to nature. Insya'Allah the new place will be close to a mosque, the interchange, shopping malls and closer to the park which we frequent on Sundays for soccer.
I have to be positive, I fell in love with the new house the first step in, so it has to be something right...it has to be a sign of the blessed-ness it has right? and it's ex owner was a Muslim family who prays etc.
I pray that this house will bring Sakeena and Rahmah to us.A home is where you feel happiest and it should be that way.
Baitti Jannati the arabs would say.
I will miss you Chai Chee, kalau ada jodoh, insya'Allah we will be back there again. GOD plans the most mysterious of things to Our Benefit, even if we know or don't know. Yaqin in his blessings and plans insya'Allah all will be well....
