To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist. Oscar Wilde

Live a good life. And in the end it’s not the years in a life, it’s the life in the years. Abraham Lincoln

Each day is a new life. Seize it. Live it. David Guy Powers

Greetings everyone! Apologies for the long silence. I’ve been rather busy of late, so many things happening all at once. But it’s been good, Alhamdulillah. When my beloved father passed away 13 years ago, I remember feeling so low to the point that I no longer felt joy in living. It was as if a part of me had been taken away. It took me a long while to recover. I look back on those gloomy years I went through and I’m glad I’ve come out of it. I still remember my father now and then but I snap out of my sadness quickly knowing that I have so much to be happy and grateful for. I also know my father would want me to continue living to the fullest, embracing each and every experience I encounter just like he had done. He would have said, “My dear, go and be happy.” That’s exactly what I’m doing now. As I go about my daily life of being a home educator, a mother and a wife, I get the chance to live life fully again. It’s a wonderful feeling which I hope will stay with me for many years to come, God Willing. Anyway, enough of my chattering, let me share a few pictures I’ve taken recently. They say a picture tells a thousand words, saves me from typing it all! The joy of Spring has certainly caught up with us, we are savouring every moment of this beautiful season. Stay tuned for more Spring updates, au revoir for now!
