It’s never too late for reflections, I believe. Never too late to give thanks to your Creator.

2011 has come and gone.

The year before that (2010) was a challenging year for me. I was full of sadness, anger, depressed and have never felt more at loss in my entire life. There was a point of time when I wanted to give up on my loved ones. I was betrayed in so many ways, I could feel every positive aura just seep out of me. My patience was pushed to the limit till I snapped.

So I prayed. It was the best thing to do. I knew He wouldn’t back out on me when the ones I counted on did. I knew He would have my back and make things right again. I prayed for forgiveness. I prayed for patience. I prayed to find my happiness once more.

With all my faith in Allah, I plunged head on into 2011 and took it one day at a time.

As the sun set on the 31st of December, I looked back on all that was 2011 and gave thanks to Allah for He had not only answered my prayers, He blessed me with so much more. Once in a while, He’d throw in a challenge related with the past, and I guess it’s just a reminder to me to not forget Him as I go about enjoying his blessings. As I thought about it more and more, He has shown me that indeed He listens. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah. Alhamdulillah.
