Positive Thinking

"When there are difficulties and you feel down, this is the time to visualize, think and expect the positive.”

Personal Note:
Today would have been a day full of celebrations, sis baking her delicious goodies, mum + sis full of excitement putting the decoration up and dad + bro would be searching for the perfect gift. Unfortunately, we only had a few years to experience that and then all of a sudden you were taken away from us. Mum says you were a gift from God during her birthday celebrations, on your birthday she also celebrated mother’s day because she believes that a mother can only celebrate that day during her children’s date of birth (we always knew you were her favorite). Ever since you left we haven’t had many happy moments even though our exterior image showed other wise, but it seems like this year God has surprised us with a gift which seems like its making mum and dad very happy, 7imdillah. It’s something that mum and dad have always prayed for and I think it’s about time one of their prayers got answered. I know we moved far away from you and we haven’t visited you since we last saw you, I can imagine it’s difficult for you to understand but you have to realize parents tend to push away or run away from sadness. However, this year you’ll have a couple of family members who’ll be close by...People say we look alike, before I used to get annoyed by it but now I’m thankful whenever I hear it. I'm grateful to have had that chance of seeing you during your happy times and experienced your contagious smile, I guess God really did miss you that much to have taken you that early from us (I don’t blame him, I would want back my uplifting angel)…Happy Birthday and you will always be missed

Its good to be happy for people we have lost. Over the years we tend to forget them but are always reminded from time to time on how what when a certain thing trigers the memories. We are happy for our lost ones to have found thier peace. Allah yir7amhom jamee3an. Be strong as you are always and dont miss the turn at albuquerque.
