It's alright...

I'm thinking aloud again, reminding myself that:
  • It's alright if you spot a mouse or two scuttering in a corner of your house because some rat poison should get it down somewhere (hopefully not in the house!).
  • It's alright if the vacuum cleaner suddenly fails to suck up dust effectively because a duster and pan works equally well.
  • It's alright if your toilet begins to rumble and sputter, because with a little bit of jiggle and wriggle, and a shout to the landlord, it'll soon be okay.
  • It's alright if you find slug trails in the landing area of your house - just wipe it off and pour some salt where you think it came from.
  • Even if your laptop decides to sabotage you, it's alright.
  • If your eldest sister is freaking out for fear of the cancer, offer kind words of inspiration and motivation - it's alright.

Really, it's not the end of the world. Allah is always by our side - no matter where, no matter when, no matter what. It's all a test. And that's what I've been telling the children, even though they seem to be the ones more anxious than the mommy.

It's alright.

yep we have to handle things one at a time and be patient about it. Just take a deep breath and go with it. Insyaallah, it will be alright.

Apa sahaja yang berlaku adalah kehendakNYA jua . Akak setakat boleh berdoa agar kesakitan yang dirasai boleh diatasi dan dapat sembuh sepenuhnya. Amin.

D dear,

Ehem ehem, how's the cough? Do you want me to send some cough syrup?

I think when we have been through a certain phase, we realise that we need time to chill out. If we worry too much, how are we able to smell the roses in this journey?

Which is why I believe I'm learning more things about life from my girl.

ps: maybe you can adopt the rat and make it a better cook?? *LOL

Dear D..

Memang benar..kena sentiasa menerima ketentuan..cuma semasa kita ditimpa sesuatu masalah tu, memang terasa macam satu beban yg sgt besar..rasa tk boleh handle..tapi later..baru dpt kita rasakan yg semuanya tidaklah begitu teruk..mungkin berkat kesabaran,do'a dan tawakkal..

salam kenal..

Dear D, saya pernah baca somewhere yang kita ni sometimes (or always) dok fikir itu dan ini (hal dunia) melebihi dari memikirkan Allah. Kdg2 bila saya susah hati atau runsing sangat, itulah yang saya cuba ingatkan pada diri saya - fikirkan Allah dan berdoa padaNya.

salam D...

Truth is, I haven't been 'alright' for the past week or so. I hate not feeling 'alright', no matter how much I tell myself that it's gonna be 'alright'.

But, I know that the Almighty Allah is great. I know I will be 'alright' even if I may not feel 'alright' at a certain moment.

I hope you're feeling 'alright', sis. Take care now.

you are so right, dij... you are so so blessed, dij. you've got the looks that WE all have been envying since we first knew you (tak caya, tanya fairuz!!!), you've known a soulmate that people envy, you've got wunderful wunderful lovely kids, and lovely and thoughtful friends and relatives all around the world to boot, too!

lagi satu... hey, dunia ni kecik la, dijji. your kakak apparently is my husband's good friend's 'kakak' masa zaman new zealand... and who also drops by to read your blog a lot! *waves at abg rosaini!* haha

love and hugs to you and kids!!!! *mwaks*
