Emotional road crossing

Tears welled up in my eyes as I crossed the road, hand in hand with both my superheroes. I did not realize how I really felt until we reached the other side of the busy road. I had never thought that simple action of crossing a road among the crowd would bring me so much joy. Who would have thought walking in the street with two boys can be something special, something to celebrate and to remember… I was emotional. It wasn’t that I had not done it before… perhaps I didn’t really put any thought into it before, since it was rather common thing to do.

Many months back, I would not have had the courage to do so. Even if I was allowed to go out, crossing the street on my own without my husband’s presence was not allowed. The road crossing was unplanned. We were in a mall when I decided maybe we should go to the other side and have our lunch there.

As we stood among the crowds waiting for for the red light, my only focus were my boys – hold my hands, I repeatedly reminded them. We were all smiling as we hurriedly crossed the road when the green light came. Then it started – the emotional bit.

I related it to my husband- I never thought I would feel this this way about crossing a road. Feelings of joy and gratitude.

It was something to celebrate and remember for the rest of my life. Maybe there’s nothing special about crossing a road especially at a pedestrian crossing with a traffic light, but it was different for me. To me it is something I have to be thankful for… .that would explain the tears.

I was asked, why are you smiling but there are tears in your eyes?

Celebrate every little thing in life…

Sky, sea and me

Malacca Straits (Selat Melaka)

Looking at the sky brought me peace, knowing that I will never be alone.

The endless sea reminds me that there is good in everything that happens in our lives..The reasonings of fate are beyond our knowledge and imagination.

We are the beautiful creations on earth, perfectly created for our individual purpose – to do no harm.

“Which favour of your Lord would you deny?” (Quran, ArRahman)

Good to be home; i get to hug you

Been almost 3 weeks we parted
Missing you both so dearly
When i saw you both today
My heart melted
You both said to me
– we didnt feel hungry when you were not around but we ate
– we missed you but we didnt cry
– we didnt feel well but we took our medicine
You don’t have to worry anymore
We are big boys now
We just want you back home
We know you were tired but seeing you both home make us very happy
Just don’t feel bad
We still love you both no matter what
Like you told us – be grateful; GOD loves us
HE will always protect us
Let us be together
You can still hug us…we can hug you both in return
…..and my tears drop.
