Ramadan Journal 2015: Day 14 - Mess

When I think of mess, one person comes to mind more than the rest – Little Lady (Gorgeous would get the distant second place) . She isn’t just messy, she has a gift for it. She can manage to spread her things across the whole house leaving evidence of where she has been and what she has been doing: dirty food bowls, books turned on their front at a certain place, school hijab and bag left on the sofa from when she comes in. We have been squabbling about this for years and it just seems to be a part of who she is: messy. The years have seen a small improvement, so I am half hopeful. I am just grateful that she takes care of her school books and organises her school work nicely.

At the moment she is fasting and I can see how tired she gets after school because of her broken sleep so I am not pestering her too much about her messiness, we can resume with that for Eid :)

 Little Lady sorting out Eid presents for the girls in her class.


  1. Reminds me of my daughter who seems to be born messy. :)

    My 15 year old son is exactly the same. He always leaves evidence of where he has been in the house and at my husband's business place.

    the beauty of our deen. i wish everyone who talks badly about our beautiful religion could see what our brothers and sisters are doing and that the majority of us would give a needy stranger our food and feel happy going hungry ourselves for the sake of Allah!
