the grumpy who-will-not-be-named was in an upset mood and nearly made me lose my temper yesterday. ALhamdulillah I was unable to fight back because apparently fasting makes me mellow. Go figure. It spikes some people's anger and it quells mine. I had a lot of time to reflect on where my life has lead me to, a couple of years ago the mere thought of religion or marriage made me sick to my belly, now apparently can't get enough of it.
I am also grateful that I am able to fast in my condition in the comfort of my home (technically my in laws) and receiving plenty of help with my toddler. DEAR LORD do they grow up fast! I mean he is just shooting up and leaving me with the nostalgia of when he was a bean, then a squash, finally a baby and then toddlerhood. I mean its awesome seeing him grow and discover new things but, but, but, my baby is growing up. He no longer a burrito (the kind you eat not the donkey) with the receiving blankets. He is a big boy now so he is demanding to be treated like one. *tears*
SubhanaAllah every day he tests me by trying to impose his tiny will on me and assert his independence which is both cute and annoying.
I am writing this while its my 3rd day of Ramadan so sorry for the lack of detail.
btw how many hours are you guys fasting? currently I am fasting for about 16 hrs. You guys?
