~ Mak

so......Mak decided to stay with Abang....
He will be moving to a big landed property
He will be giving Mak her own room on the ground floor
Mak can use all the air con she wants
Mak can have her own garden again. 

suddenly, her promise to me changed....

My heart is broken...
i AM happy for Abang and his family but I really wanted Mak to stay with me

suddenly I question my own intentions....all these while,
its only me and sis who has been going up and down the hospital appointments with Mak...and if Mak has any problems, it was always me that had to listen and help.....

and who does she choose to stay with, not me. 

I had looked forward to have her stay with me..even though our home is not big and we are not wealthy, we are considered OK. Medium. average....
Our house is blessed. We pray.... we go to the masjid....

Yet.....

Its not easy to be truly ikhlas. Especially when we don't feel appreciated. 

Texted Bro K....who understands and gave me some advise....and he also told me....

Just pray for …

I must give myself a pat on the back...

~ Eid 2016

Image
Have'nt been able to do any blogging since Ramadhan....

Didn't expect that the whole family was gonna fall in ill at the end of Ramadhan

This year, Eid happened to be only lukewarm with us visiting about 10 houses every weekend. We also did not receive much visitors because we were sick all the time....

I must say, this must be one of the most quiet Eid. 

As I am typing this now, I am still nursing one of my worse cough episode in history...Its nearly a month with 2 MCs in the bag. X-Ray results showed my chest is good and no signs of pneumonia or any lung infections.  



This was with Mak on the night of Shawl 2016 @ Masjid Al Abdul Razak.  I am so thankful, she got to be at the masjid with me and her cucus that night.....it seems to be a yearly tradition that I bring her to the masjid for takbir.
Thank you Allah for allowing me to spend time with my mother. Ameen.
