right now I am learning to accept…
… that life is a never ending learning path.
… that dunia (this life on earth) is a test, and every day a new chance to show my best.
… that good times and hard times are in a continuous change.
… that nothing in this life is “perfect”.
… that everything changes.
… that there is always something to improve.
… that everything happens for a good reason, inchaallah.
… that happiness lies in the moment.
… that cobwebs, dirt and disorder are part of life (even in a new house)
… that Allah’s plans are alreday made and I simply have to count in HIM.
…remembering ‘Id day, still eating some of the sweets and the meat, enjoying some days off, inhaling autumn, reading, cleaning and organizing things around the house.
hope you had a lovely celebration. may Allah bless you and your beloved ones and the whole world with peace.

homemade summer ice tea for nice breaks in busy times
a little update:
when it is quiet here, real life is busy, as you know – I think we all go through the same and as I see the comment section of this blog being quiet as well, I guess you are all busy too.
after vacation and a nice timeout in marrakech, I am now back to work, busy preparing school and the start of the new schoolyear next week.
internet got newly installed in the valley and is muuuuuch quicker now, alhamdulillah!
but the electricity often goes away as usual and my computertime is limited anyway, so my list of emails to respond is still long (sorry to all those waiting for my response) and time to blog is rare … but I hope to soon be able to report a bit about our days in the red city, inchallah.
until then I wish you a nice indian summer and a happy september – stay well friends!
“beyond boredom lies the true self” (Gill Edwards)
here I sit, with a cup of iced coffee, some chocolate
and in my head I ponder on the wonderful books I read and sources of inspiration for family-life and self:
Gill Edwards “Pure Bliss”
Anne Morrow Lindbergh “Gift from the sea”
Amanda Blake Soule “the creative Family” and “Rhythm of Family”
