Back at the start of the year I decided to do a monthly gratitude series to remind me to be grateful of every thing as it is so easy to take things for granted. However an unexpected trip to Pakistan threw my whole blog schedule out of sync and I never got back to doing it monthly. But I need to do this for myself….to help me appreciate what I have as we often overlook what we have and focus on what we don’t. So time to start again and get this going monthly.
It was back to school today but I am grateful for the 6 weeks we had off in August as although the girls do bicker quite a lot and can stress me out, we managed to fit in two trips – one to Wales and one to Scotland. I am grateful that we are in a position to allow us to take the girls to different places, get them to have new experiences and make lots of memories together.
My husband has been having a few tests recently and it was a bit of a worrying time but alhamdulillah they came back clear. Although there are some issues which are currently unexplained we know its not cancer or anything as serious as that alhamdulillah. So I grateful for the healthcare we receive which enables us to have these tests free of charge.
Life in General
I have been feeling a bit down about the whole blogging scene and debating whether to continue…but I have made the decision to step back and evaluate. And just blog if I want to…it won’t be the end of the world if I don’t blog regularly or if I don’t bother as much with the Muslimah Bloggers community. I have decided not to get stressed about the whole thing and just go with the flow…so I am grateful that I don’t have to rely on the blog as a means to an income and just keep it as a hobby if I choose.
