Following two whole years of not celebrating Eid with my family, I am blessed to be able to celebrate this year’s raya with my parents, sister, cousins, uncles, aunties, grandparents but most importantly HUSBAND AND BABY!!! Alhamdulillah! 😀
To think that this time last year, I was still in confinement and away from my loved ones, gosh.
This past year has been an extremely eventful one for sure. Full of extreme ups and downs. My little girl is now one year old and she has grown into a bright and cheerful toddler with much mischief. I love her to bits and pieces and don’t think I’ll ever be able to get enough of her tiny hugs and sloppy kisses.
My relationship with my sweet husband blossoms by the day. Though we met some trying times, I thank Allah that we managed to smooth out the crinkles and now things are as great as they should be. He’s one heck of a daddy to my little baby and I couldn’t ask for more.
My sister has been back for several months now and I am so happy to have her around again. She’s simply the best company to have! I get my gossip buddy, shopping buddy, baking buddy and everything else all in one! She’ll only be around for another three weeks before she goes off to continue the rest of her semester, so I’m going to have to make the most of her time left here.
Batty-old-maid is still running rampant, but I’ve told myself that I am not going to be bothered by her anymore. It’s an ongoing challenge especially seeing how she treats my baby with the same haughtiness as well (imagine that). She can say or do whatever she wants; she’s a witch in my books. I have to remind myself to ignore her, to stop people when they want to tell me things about her; I honestly don’t need unnecessary stress in my life.
One of my best friends has found true happiness, another point to thank Allah for. Though I was initially not for the whole relationship, I realized that what matters was her happiness and not my thoughts per say. Recently, I had the chance to see them together, and chatted with my bestie about her relationship. I have not seen her as happy and cheerful as she is now in a very very long time. For that, I’ve decided to put aside whatever ill thoughts I have about the dude, and give him a pat on the back instead.
It’s time for me to step back into my happy bubble. I’ve been out of it for far too long. Too many things have been the cause of negative prickliness that destroyed almost my entire positive outlook in life. All that negativity has even managed to pollute my happy little blog. Tsk tsk. Now it’s time to put things back into place.
To my wonderful family whom are abroad, if you’re reading this, I wish you a Selamat Hari Raya. May we get the chance to gather and meet again someday. I miss you loads. Maaf zahir batin.
To my soul mates, thank you for being there when I needed you most. I’m sorry if I haven’t exactly been the best of friends but I truly value our friendship. Selamat hari raya, and from the bottom of my heart, maaf zahir dan batin.
To all my friends, your friendships are the tiny treasures in my chest of life!
To all my lovely Doodlers, thank you for all your support throughout the years! You’re simply the best! Selamat hari raya, maaf zahir batin!!
