My kids have been counting the days to the emergence of Ramadhan. And this morning my son woke up with"...hati anin ni dah ada bunga2 mama sebab esok dah nak puasa, yey!" It's probably going to the surau meeting his friends and the seemingly special food on the table that please him the most. My daughter on the other hand, was not really looking forward to puasa this time around. It is a reminder for her that UPSR is just around the corner.
For me, Ramadhan often presents the time for yours truly to rest and take the role of a homemaker rather than a homebaker to the fullest. I miss to just bake and cook for the family and what I miss most is probably of not being so uptight about things. Someone I love dearly lamented the other day how uptight I have become and painted the person I never thought I was. It saddens me for awhile to learn of how I was perceived all these time but it got me into thinking that maybe I was indeed a cookie monster who was oblivious to the self destruction mode I switched on, hence the blue colour ;o). The operative word is letting go. I need to just let go as I inhale and exhale slowly.
I surely think I have now.
Selamat Berpuasa dan beribadah di bulan Ramadhan ini. Semoga segala yang dikerjakan dirahmati dan dilipat gandakan pahala pada bulan yang mulia. Saya mohon kemaafan jika ada yang berkecil hati mahupun kek2 yang saya persembahkan tidak memenuhi citarasa semua. Mohon maaf dan ampun juga jika saya terkasar bahasa, termakan, terminum atau terambil mana2 yang bukan hak ke atas saya.
Terima Kasih atas sokongan anda selama ini. Saya doakan kesejahteraan dan kebahagiaan untuk anda sekeluarga. Amin.
