This post is late because, well, life happens and I didn’t have enough time to write it. My birthday was on the 15th of November, but here it is now.
This was one of the most precious and bitter sweet birthdays of all. I’m with my best friend; which is absolutely amazing and I’m having the time of my life. But I’m away from my little munchkin and that hurts my heart. I miss her dearly, even though we’ve been talking and FaceTiming every day.
This past year has been quite the year! I took a major decision that will alter mine and Nid’s lives forever; Insha’Allah for the better. I have lost many friends and family this year, however have gained some as well. The people I never thought I would cut out of my life have been cut out and the people I would have never thought would become some of the dearest people to me have become just that.
I travelled during this pandemic. I got to see a country I could have never imagined that I would see but I did and it was absolutely amazing!
Corona has brought the world to it’s knees and made all of us appreciate and realize what the importance of life is. It gave me a chance to spend so much time with my little pumpkin and have so many lazy, yet fun times at home with her. We spent endless days on the balcony, we went for walks, ate a ton of junk food and laughed and cried through this pandemic. It scares the hell out of me to think of how many people have lost loved ones this year but Alhamdullilah, I am not one of them. I honestly pray for our world. I pray no one loses a loved one to this virus. I pray we all make it out in one piece after this all over with a better appreciation of everything we have that we’ve all taken for granted. Insha’Allah it will all be over soon and life will return to some sort of normalcy in 2021.
As for my birthday, like I mentioned, I spent it with my best friend and some friends that have become like brothers to me. I was surprised with the perfect piece of chocolate cake, roses, and a custom made, hand drawn picture of one of the most precious moments in my life. It was perfect. The only missing element was my little darling. But she sent me cute iMessages from her iPad and FaceTimed me to make my day even more special and perfect.
Insha’Allah the following year will be even more blessed than this one was. Thank you all for continuing to read about my adventures and life. I am so thankful for all of you. ❤️
