Observations on Joy – Early Morning Peace

A few Fridays ago I was inspired to start this regular post to share something positive every Friday insh’Allah. Not necessarily anything life-changing, but something small and everyday that we may take for granted but for which we should be immensely grateful to Allah (SWT).

I haven't managed to get near my computer the last two Fridays, but managed today, which is a good start. Work is manic at the moment, but there is one part which I particularly enjoy, and that is the early morning start. I get in at 7.30, before most people and take my time settling in, making my herbal tea and deciding what I want to do with my day.

I can take my time at this time of the morning and enjoy the view from my window:

It looks particularly lovely when the swans float by in formation or the tugboat comes meandering along.

This Friday, there are no managers in for some reason and most of my colleagues seem to have booked leave, so I and a colleague have decided to abscond for a long lunch at Pizza Hut. I will be taking a bracelet I have made her (I'll try to remember to take a picture). Hope you have a good day too today insh'Allah– Jummah Mubarak.

I have guests staying the entire weekend and hubby and his brothers are away, as well as a Sisters circle starting on Sunday (for those of you who know me and are nearby, do come - it is 2-3pm every Sunday insh'Allah). Hopefully, I will get the kids to go to kids to bed early-ish (although they have the excuse that school is finished after today) and get lots of me-time in between the busy time insh'Allah.
