Another Day!

Don't you all wish that you can have what you want? but realistically know that it is not possible, yet being weak human beings we get upset and stressed over what life throws at us. Stress has to be the worst killer in this world, it makes you ill, it makes you loose interest in almost everything, another day comes but the depression is overtaking your day again but what is the solution?
It is true that we are all born with our share of problems and on many occasions our problems are nothing compared to others, for that I thank Allah and I pray to him to help me and help others to overcome their problems and Allah is always there for us.

The weather has improved over the bank holiday weekend which helped a lot with the kids as they enjoyed playing in the garden and park. There has been a couple of Libyan weddings as well last week that my daughter and her mum attended in a hotel, here is a picture taken by my friend Omar:

I am glad Aida attended as I have mentioned before I find it a shame that children are not allowed to attend weddings, especially in a different environment, it was good for my daughter to see and hear Libyan wedding customs and songs and yes I know that some Libyan kids are so badly behaved that many people ban children from their parties, I think its the parents responsibility to make sure that children are well behaved. I am glad to say that Aida behaved like a little princess, hardly ever leaving her seat.

That's all I have for now except I wanted to add a song to cheer up the mood a bit, I thought about Umbrella by Rihanna which is a great song but that has already been added by The Lost-Libyan so I chose another hit from this year, its Say it Right by Nelly Furtado:

If I ever die of a heart attack, I hope it wont be from stress.

Aida is looking stunning mashallah! Aida is old enough to attend weddings, as I said before, I think the fitrish kids should be banned from weddings. The ones that run around everywhere and scream.

Safia speaks said...

Ahhh Leebeya! You are A L I V E ???
Alhamdulillah ala salamtek :P

Anglo-Libyan said...

Salam Anglo-Libyan,
I'm right there with you on the rain issue. I am not worth being around in the rain....ugh! Honestly, I don't know how you survive in London. May Allah make your trying days be filled with ease and grace, inshallah.

Mashallah, Aida is an absolutely stunning young girl. May Allah protect her always, inshallah. What a fun experience for you as we all for your wife to experience it with her. :-)

Anglo-Libyan said...

Ameen to that and the same to you and yes Aida & mum had a great time at the wedding.

"Don't you all wish that you can have what you want? but realistically know that it is not possible, yet being weak human beings we get upset and stressed over what life throws at us."

قال تعالي:
" وعسى أن تكرهوا شيئا وهو خير لكم وعسى أن تحبوا شيئا وهو شر لكم ، والله يعلم وأنتم لا تعلمون "

and a poet said :

ربَّ أمـرٍ تـتـقيـه *** جـرَّ أمـراً تـرتضـيه
خـفي المحـبوب منـه *** وبـدا المكـروه فيــه

So don't worry or stress out everything solves itself by itself by Gods will as long as you accept it :).

As for Aida rabi yahfatha .. how old is she :)))))))))).( joking )

salaam and enjoy your upcoming weekend .

Anglo-Libyan said...

Thank ph, barak Allah Feek

the life is short no need to be stressed, happy birthday for Aida in advance, my sister on 21 Sep

Anglo-Libyan said...

thanks brave heart and happy birthday to your sister :o)

Mujahada said...

Kids have the most fun at weddings! They should always be allowed to go! I hate when weddings don't allow kids :D

Highlander said...

Anglo Libyan your daughter is really growing up fast mashallah, now I have a couple of cousins who could be suitable ask , blonde and non-blonde LOL :P

As for your stress we all pass through those moments and I think PH's words are useful in those times to remind us of what is really important in our life : faith in God and health and a happy family life - the rest can be taken care off. On this note I wish to tell you that many of us in the blogosphere are also your family and tribe and if you needed any help and advice you are welcome to email me or use us as a sounding board for whatever is bothering.

your sister,

Anglo-Libyan said...

thank you mujahida, good to see you here :o)

highlander, im sure your cousins are great, they just have to wait a bit lol

thank you for your care and support, it really is good to know
