Guess who’s back?………..

Bismillaah. I’m serious this time 🙂 I’m giving up facebook…for a while at least.  I’ve got a long list of spiritual/educational/self-development to-do’s that’s been sitting around for too long.  Been feeling too stagnant in too many areas and it doesn’t feel good.  I need to eliminate distractions and get moving on the things that I … Continue reading

Ramadan Journal Day 5: A Small Contest

Bismillaah. The day started with my sister and I having suhoor together.  It was a nice feeling sitting in the dark of the night chitchatting with her over a bowl of oatmeal.  Just like old times.  One thing I love about my sisters is that we can be brutally honest with one another.  Any time … Continue reading
