Ramadan is here again. This is the second year my kids will be going through this Ramadan without their beloved Mak. Today, during our first breaking fast together, one of our dining chair is empty. Only the 5 of us are there. This is a second year where the seat is empty. Insya'allah we can go through this year again.
Yesterday, for our first Terawih prayer, all of us went to the Surau Taman Selasih. The boys went on their own. Only Mimi went with me. She had wanted to go for the Terawih prayer for 2 reasons. One is to pray and the other reason is because some of her friends are there. Whatever it is, I guess she that's ok with me. And today, Ika (her cousin) went with us. Mimi told me that she was more excited this year because she can go to the Terawih now. Not that I didn't asked her to go with me last year. It just that she felt differently this year. Maybe she is bit more mature now. Whatever it is, I'm glad she want to go anyway.
And for those who have send me messages wishing Salam Ramadan, I thank you very much. My wish is that all of our good deeds will be accepted and be blessed by Allah S.W.T. This is also a month that we can changed for betterment. Ramadan is a month that we can do much more and much better that what we have done last year. Even a small change is better than none.
So to all, Salam Ramadan and Maaf Zahir Batin.
