New Year Ramblings

Almost two months of the new year has passed, and here I am neglecting my blog to the point that I don't quite remember if i ever had a blog. Lame. 
But let me start my post by reminiscing the year 2013.

2013 ended with a sad note for me and my entire family. My beloved mother, passed on on Christmas Day. It was a very sad sad day for me as I have been taking care of her since she was hospitalised and brought her home after eleven days there. But I have matters to attend to that very week she was to leave us. I went back home to submit my travelling documents due in February 2014. Later that holiday evening, news came in from my nieces who took turns taking care of their grandma, telling me, she was gone after a fall while performing her Isya' prayers. Ya Allah, haramkan neraka buat bondaku..hanya Jannah buatnya...I thought I hear myself uttering the 'doa'.

Early 2014 saw me busy with my preparation for my 'Umrah'. Hubby and I travelled a lot to KL to be with MyC and bringing her back home after her exams and getting her documents ready for the pilgrim trip too. It was hectic but meaningful all the same.

By the way, I just got back from Makkah last week. It was a blessing to be able to perform my umrah even when I was sick. I did not adapt well to Madinah's cold weather; plus the travelling made me weaker when I reached Makkah. Alhamdulillah...

Ok...that's all for now. I'll be writing again in the near future but don't ask me when...hehehe.. Perhaps when the urge to write haunts me day and night. Sometimes I just had nightmares of publishing new entries but found none when I wake up. Cute, huh?

Oh, I miss you guys out there! 

Lots of love, 
Lili ;-)

Hello Lili, regret to read of your beloved mom's passing on. My deepest condolences to you and family.

What though the radiance which was once so bright,
Be now forever taken from my sight.
Though noting can bring back the splendour in the grass, of glory in the flowers,
We will grieve not, rather find,
Strength in what remains behind.

You keep well, best regards, from Lee, Toronto, Canada.

Lili, congratulations on your trip to the holy land. How I miss the Haramain.
Hihi, I guess, we are at the stage of fading into the blogging horizon. I certainly am. Found myself wanting to write something but nothing fancy comes to mind. when it does come, the narrative is quite poor. mind the grammar.

My condolence on the passing of your Mom. Al fatihah.

Lili said...

Hi Lee..it's been a while, huh? Thanks for the condolences and thanks for still supporting me by dropping by my humble abode here.

All the best to you from us in Malaysia ;-)

Lili said...

As,

Alhamdulillah..thank you, thank you for leaving your print here yet again. Am so glad you dropped by. And thanks for the prayers for my late mum.

Really eh, these musings and writings sometimes just don't come easy. One minute you thought you have a good story to write but the next is always, 'later lah'...and there goes nothing!

Have a nice weekend, As
