This time of the year is great: we collect wood, we fire on the chimney, peel off some corn and wrap up some sweet potatoes into baking foil; we put it all into the heat and sit in front of the warm oven, watching the flames going high. We enjoy eating while thinking about the day and being grateful for our lives.
It’s a peaceful atmosphere and a nice end of a long day.
Subhan’allah, it makes me feeling so thankful for all we have, it makes me feeling lucky about all the gifts in my life, about my two sons and the new baby to come, and it makes me feeling just very very grateful for every minute we share as a little family.
And I still pray and keep praying for my family in Germany. My thoughts are always with them. May Allah give them strength, faith and ease. Ameen.
