It's sad to think that time zooms by too fast. The holy month is almost ending, welcoming a new month with great celebrations: pots boiling on the stove, biscuits beaming in fanciful jars, new curtains hanging over gleaming windows, etc.
In a moment of reflection, let us not forget that what we have learnt throughout Ramadhan should be put to practice regardless where and when. I often tell my 10-year old sons, you refrain yourself from picking your noses (*excuse me here!) when you fast during the day. Continue with the great job even after Ramadhan. I guess it's like the smokers who can do without a cig for 12+ hours in Ramadhan, but as soon as it's over, it's back to square one!
To all friends out there, Eid Mubarak to all of you! I don't know how our Eid will be, but I think it'll be rather quiet for us. Seems like it'll be too much to 'celebrate' Syawal when your beloved is truly unwell. Already, friends have made invitations for open houses. Pity the children if we miss out but where else should we be other than by Mr D's side?
