After days of stop start contractions and a false alarm, I was blessed with my fifth child, a healthy little girl, last Friday morning at dawn.
I am feeling so very grateful, awed, achey, exhausted and overwhelmed right now.
Alhamdulillah for the blessings of little ones, of helpful family, health, kind neighbours, good friends and this faith which is the only thing that gets us through the hardest times to blessed ones.
Alhamdulillah for that sweet baby smell, for those tiny fingers and those smiles that babies smile in their sleep. Alhamdulillah for the big kids who help their mum, for mum-in-law who has been holding the front with cooking and cleaning despite her poor health and for sisters who have been fulfilling my to-do lists.
I am so grateful for the kind comments, e-mails, offers of help and encouragement from sisters. Most of all I am humbled and grateful for your dua's which are so very precious to me.
I have so much to share and I will start blogging again and answering comments and e-mails soon once I find my feet, things calm down a little and my head stops spinning.
