Counting Blessings

When the young one had a rough night and finally fell asleep at 10 AM; and it’s gloomy outside with the wind howling like a fierce lion; and there is a mountain of washing that needs to be folded; and lunch must be cooked before the other children finish school and need to be picked up…. that’s when I need to stop for a moment and express gratitude… thank God for these simple challenges … thank God that there is food to be cooked, and children to be taken care of, and a car to drive to pick up the children, and a warm home to shelter from the cold wind, and water in plenty to wash clothes… this moment is precious … time to pull myself together and dive into my Friday… bismillah…
