In the spirit of trying to be more positive and thankful, I figure each day I’d focus on one of the things I am (alhamdu lillah) very grateful for. I’m sure I can make a list of 100 (or more) things right now, but I like the idea of taking a moment each day to focus on 1. In the process, I am sure I will remember many others, and keep the feeling alive and ongoing.
#1: My Parents
Words cannot begin to express how much I love them and how much I owe them for all they’ve done for me. We’ve had our rocky moments, but at the end of the day, nothing is like a parents’ love for their children, and I know that now that I have my own. As children we’re just so oblivious and unappreciative, but they’ve really been through so much for us. Thank you mom and dad 🙂
