Life is about TRUSTING our feeling and TAKING CHANCES, LOSING and FINDING HAPPINESS, APPRECIATING the memories and LEARNING from the past... Let's together ask ALLAH to help us for not wasting the life we have.

Allah, this is my day

This day is my new life. I am 18. And I call this day is mine. When I woke up in the morning and finished making me ready for my day, Ahmad came to me and hugged me as if he no longer meet me for a year. I don’t know why he did that but I didn’t care. I kissed his cheeks and head then I said proudly, “Ahmad, today is my birthday!” He gave me a big smile and hugged me again. Then he sang a Happy Birthday song for me. I never thought he’d do that cuz I thought he didn’t really understand what birthday means. Man, he is just a 5-year-old boy. That really surprised me. Then, I sang to him back, “Today is my day. Today is my birthday. Happy happy birthday to me…” Actually, that is the ‘Magic English’ song and I know he like it so much. He started giggling to me. He said I’m cute to be like a little lady then he kissed my nose.
When I went downstairs and started my routine like always, I realized something just began to make me sad. Of course I do. My dad was going to work, my brothers and sister were having a school time and my mother was going to be busy again like always. Then yeah, I AM sad again. I just hope they’d get any damn day-out just for me. I started to felt like wanted to cry. I said to myself that I wanted to go to Matri cuz there, I‘d celebrate this day with my friends. Yes, I did get those phone calls, sms’s, and emails from my friends for the birthday wishes but deeply in my heart, I know that I just wished to meet them and hugged them as tight as I could. But I just could do nothing.
Anyway, something really made me felt so lucky this day. My dad was coming home so early. It was about 6 in the evening. Firstly, I didn’t know why but now I do. He did that just because he wanted the birthday girl happy. After we perform our prayers, my dad said that he was going to bring us out to the Angsana Plaza. For what? Hell yeah… To celebrate my birthday! He brought us to the pizza restaurant as he knows my favourite food is pizza. Then, we had our appetizing dinner there. So happy, wonderful and contented time in the restaurant. You know? I love it.

Then I realized, there are people who Allah gave me to love me and care about me. That is my family and absolutely my friends too. This day, I felt like my dad is the coolest daddy I ever saw. Why not? When he brought me to the plaza, I noticed that he was very tired from working all day long but I know that he really doesn't want to make me disappointed. So, he came back home early to have a bit rest for charging his energy just for the birthday girl's night celebration. My mom too... I realized that she was worned-out like a person who have no more strength to do other work. But subhanallah... for my birthday party, she was willing to do anything. Umi & Abah, I really do love you both. May Allah bless your life. Allah... Thanks for giving me the chance to feel the pleasure of love. Please Allah, do fill my heart with love to You, Rasool Muhammad, my parents and to everybody who loved You. Ameen...
