They're Back

I realised what big kids we all are recently by how much we all missed out parents.  They have been in Pakistan for six weeks visiting family and reliving childhood memories.  They came back this week alhamdulillah. I can’t remember the last Mother’s Day we had without mum, so she returned to cards, flowers, gifts and more flowers from everyone.

As always mum came home with gifts, both the kind you eat and the kind you wear, she loves shopping and she loves finding us beautiful things.

We take our blessings for granted, but I hope this is never the case with our parents.  Perhaps I feel it more because one of my sister’s in law lost her father this year, another both parents in recent years and a third had lost both parents before she married.  I hear the pain and loss in their voices and the way they remember their parents during times of celebration and it brings home how lucky we are.

May Allah (SWT) bless them both with long life and good health and bless us with their dua’s for us.
