While I was sitting this morning reading in my warm corner in our pretty very inspirational balcony, pudding came & sat next to me.. The sun rays were all over him & I
got lost in his young angelic face.. 'He's growing!' I sighed.. I don't want him growing! I want him to stay where he is! The birds were singing & I was honestly jealous.. They don't get to be questioned & we do.. Pudding won't always be "my li'l puddingy", will he? He'll soon be accountable for all it is that he's doing.. Oh, my li'l pudding is growing.. *sigh*
We can do it, I know we can.. We sin & repent.. And sin again.. And repent again.. The thought that keeps me hanging in here is that: as long as we're breathing, we get another chance.. That's true brothers & sisters (I always wonder why I'm used to saying brothers before sisters, ain't it funny?).. We get another chance :D
I also see that women (talkative gender) do get more chances of their sins being wiped off than men do.. We go through monthly pains.. Carry children.. And so much more.. While men have to carry themselves along with others & strive hard, so hard.. May Allah make it easy on all of those trying hard.. And may He The Strongest grant 'em the strength to hang in there, until their time comes.. Amen :)
I'd love to share here with you today a sweet sweet incident that took place last night :) Well, while swimming in the pool last night, this li'l almost 5 year old kiddo came in & made all these funny things in the water & drew everyone's attention.. I couldn't stop watching him.. He came up to me & kept on making hard efforts in showing off his swimming skills ;) And when the time came for everyone to leave, I noticed him with his mom on the side of the pool getting ready to leave & go bathe.. Everyone left except us.. I was close enough to hear the following:
Cute Kiddo: "Mommy!"
Cute Kiddo's Mom: "Yes baby?"
CK: "I wanna tell you something, but promise you won't get mad first?"
CKM surprisingly: "Umm, what is it?"
CK: "No you gotta promise first!"
CKM worryingly: "I promise! What is it?"
CK: "Say wAllahi?"
CK pleadingly: "WAllahi you won't get mad?"
CKM nervously: "WAllahi I won't get mad! Say it baby.."
CK: "It's just that, the little hairs laying on the back of your neck from this swim cap & the goggles you're wearing make you look like a.. ahhh.. look like.."
CKM: "What baby?"
CK in a low voice: "You look like a mouse!"
CKM teasingly: "I look like a mouse? Is that how I look like?"
CK regretfully: "But maaaaaaa, you said you won't get mad?!"
CKM: "I look like a mouse?"
CK: "It's just that.. Mommyyyyyy, come on?!"
CKM: "I'm not mad, I'm not mad.. But MOUSE? :P"
CK relieved & happy: "hehehehehehehehe :D"
