My parents are here visiting us in our new environment and you know what? It feels like we’ve taken a (very small) step towards calling this place home. It feels nice to have family around! I always appreciated the fact that we lived so close to family (or at least in the same country) while in England. It just feels like we didn’t realise just how much we’d miss them and how much of a difference it has made to us. I am living in the moment and I think it’s safe to say we will be entering the New Years on a high inshallah. May Allah guide us towards good and help us be more compassionate and forgiving towards one another in order to be better human beings.
