joy o joy o joy

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart andyou shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight – Kahlil Gibran

The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse – Helen Keller

  1. God bless beautiful Leila..And I’m so so so sorry about dear Zoya.. Your love for them would let you overcome any hardships, even the sorrow that you may feel now.. What you said in your last post is true, sometimes its best to let God decide which wishes to grant.. Loads of dua’s and love to you all.. You’re one of those people I feel I know without knowing.. And believe me, both – the joy and the heartbreak, feels so personal to me..

  2. Sara, if anyone could be so self-composed and at peace after this, it has to be you. You such a positive, wonderful human being and you really have the power to change the world with it. God has given you immense strength, Mashallah. Please continue spreading those positive vibes and keep strong. You are a real inspiration.

    Leila is beautiful! Lots of prayers and love for both Zoya and her.

    How’s Nadi doing? 🙂

    1. thanks so much for the wonderful word sonia- i dont know about inspiration but i think being surrounded by the people i am in life has really helped at this point-

      nadi is doing well so far- loving the chaos!

  3. Love and prayers. Always. Your remarkable strength and optimism is inspiring. Believe it or not, it’s taught me a thing or two about staying calm/positive even in the face of darkness

  4. i’m so happy that you’re blogging again! 🙂
    i thought you wouldn’t maybe.. at least for a while.

    you truly are a wonderful unique source of inspiration to so many of us out there.
    love you..
    and lots and lots of duas and hugs to baby Leila.. and of course Nadi!

      1. no, which one.. but that’s ok really. i’m not complaining at all 🙂
        just to know that you and Leila are well.. and getting your random updates is enough.
