when those you care for…

What a day! Today I felt a uselessness that only Allah knows all about.

Today I saw my boss take one more step backwards and my heart cries out for him.

Today…how I could do it over again; knowing again is for tomorrow no longer for today.

Not angry; just disappointed where it hurts the most- but that is what Allah gave me today- so of those lemons I will make lemonade and drink its bitter juice- for not even sugar was supplied.

Interesting being a Muslim; I wonder how I would of reacted say 35 years ago? Then I laugh a bitter one- for I would have been too young to understand and like now unable to change one iota.

    Oh no! I hope he feels better soon. Do you think he’ll be ok, Inshallah?

    I don’t know Suroor- he looks defeated- as though he is giving up.

    Cancer runs in his family- both parents died of it- one Young his mom and one old his dad- I knew his dad-best doctor ever and the greatest person- his son just the same…

    But since August he has been battling to stay alive; and in the last weeks we had seen him back to work and start slowly being the good old Dr M as we call him- then suddenly on Sunday night he lost his senses and crashed on the kitchen floor.
    His wife text me to say she was taking him to the hospital- we take turns sitting with him and keeping him company even wheb he sleeps…

    But to me he is so much more than my; he is a friend; part of my family (my aunt and uncles all know him); an uncle to my kids- it would be and his devastating to see him slowly losing this battle…
    I pray to Allah SWT that he rallies and stays with us for a longer while.
