Of being thankful

A dear friend of mine just had a miscarriage.

Her sixth miscarriage. Yes, enam.

She finally had one successful pregnancy after the 5th miscarriage, and this 6th one is the most recent trying for #2. Her daughter now is almost 2 years old.

I can’t imagine being in her shoes. One disappointment after another. I tabik dengan kekuatan yang dia ada.

To that dear friend, be strong ye kakak ku.

Made me realise how lucky I am (and most of us) to be blessed with kids. Lotsa kids.

When I see my boys sleeping, I silently pray to Allah to lend them to me a little longer. A lot longer, please.

Cherish your kids. A soft reminder to myself to be more patient with mine.
