Hubby and I surprised our children with breakfast from McDonald’s, delivered to our house. We could see how happy they were, eating and chatting, having breakfast with the whole family.
Today Hubby flies off for overseas working trip. We went to the airport, had our lunch together, then off he went to check-in. I was grateful that Hubby and I spent a quiet moment alone without the kids before he went in. After our children bid goodbye to their Abah, they went for a walk with my cousin and aunt, who came down to airport to have lunch with us.
I let him go with an open heart. Sadness still lingers, but I am confident that Allah will protect him when he’s there, and Allah will protect my children and I when we’re here. I trust Allah, and I trust him. He hugged and kissed me, whispered some du’a that soothed my emotion, and he entered the gate.
At home, I teared when I heard my children said some du’a to Allah, after their Maghrib prayer, for their Abah’s safety in other country. But I tickled when I also heard that they asked Allah to get Abah to buy all sorts of chocolates for them when he returns. 😀
I saw Affandy back in prostrated position after his salam during Isyak prayer. When asked, he said he prayed for his Abah in sujud, instead of lifting his hands up, because Allah loves it when we sujud. How can I not love this little young man??
Hubby called up from his hotel later at night. It felt so good to hear his voice. We talked for awhile before I went to bed.
Tonight, Affandy has the chance to sleep with me. He doesn’t want me to sleep alone, that’s what he says. Knowing him, he has been waiting for this chance for the longest time. He took the opportunity to sleep with me when Hubby is not in town.
InsyaAllah, tomorrow and Wednesday, my children and I want to perform fasting on the 10 and 11 of Muharram. May Allah always be with us, and Hubby….
