Cries. Jubilation. Excitement
“O my Lord, I actually delivered”
Alhamdulilah.*

Teaching me the power of
Mind Over Body.
Alhamdulilah.

Helping me learn new skills.
Breathing through the pain.
Alhamdulilah.

Succeeding through positivity
Positive Affirmations.
Alhamdulilah.

Teaching me the power of
‘Informed Birthing’.
Alhamdulilah.

Helping me learn that
‘I can do this alone!’
Alhamdulilah.

Succeeding through Duas.
Direct calls to God.
Alhamdulilah.

The first sip of milk.
A new bond was formed.
Alhamdulilah.

Being able to walk immediately.
VBAC
Alhamdulilah.

‘Momma, Babbyyyyy!’
Screams the toddler.
Alhamdulilah.

An instant best friend for life
Sisters.
Alhamdulilah.

Four years.
Two kids.
Alhamdulilah.

You are named
After one of the best.
May you have a lofty place
In this Dunya and next
Like your namesake.
Ameen.
.
*Alhamdulilah – All Praise be to God

(Hello folks, It has been a while since I have been active on my blog. The big changes in our lives over the past couple of months + the scramble to find a new normal routine + the disappointment  – once again – on the career front etc have kept me away from the blogging world. InshAllah hoping to get back once again – stronger than ever)
