Secret Thursday

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We all get our moments of anger, despair, sadness.. or maybe we've something that is hard to share with people around us. Imagine this being a kite, where you write all the secrets you have in your heart, all the matters that concern you but you just can't share, and you fly the kite away, relief can fill your heart afterwards to some extent.

Post anonymously. I will be posting in between as well :), on our secret Thursday.

Ramadhan Kareem, isn't it very late. It is 19th Ramadhan and I didn't post anything. I always have the intention of posting once a week, but never seem able to achieve this :(.

done by my sisters-in-law

Before the start of Ramadhan I did with the great help of my sisters in-law (much appreciated help) a small party to introduce ramadhan to my children. They did a funny puppet show as well :), we ended it with dinner and the cake above. I hope that the idea of how special and important this month is will remain forever in my children's hearts.

It is almost over. I have the sad feeling that you get when you get separated from someone close, and you don't know if you will ever get to see them again.

a crucial side note: remember our brothers and sisters in Somalia. while we have an end of our fasting, they don't. to donate, here are some great and trusted organisations:
