I'm really happy today alhamdulillah on a personal level. I crossed off items on my to-do list, joined Spark People, and worked out for the first time after that horrible bout of bronchitis-throat infection-coughititis. I really want to continue feeling this way... in control of things and not have it the other way round. I have the horrible habit of thinking that if I ignore some things they'll go away on their own :|
The whole Spark People thing started because I was sampling books on the Kindle and thought maybe this one will get me going... so I bought the Kindle version of the Spark book then got hooked on to the site. I also started using my HTC again (even though the keyboard doesn't work anymore :( ) so hopefully even if I can't access the site from office, I should be able to track my progress. I just hope this isn't that one day high and I'll be down again starting tomorrow.
Also listened to some lectures today, mainly this one on 'Islam and Ego'. I really wished that Br. Nouman would never stop talking. I wonder how the sahaba felt then, when the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was speaking to them. (On a sidenote, I was thinking that if we have a son insha allah, we should name him Muhammad :), what could be a better name than that?)
Some of my excitement is also because I made some extra effort and thought would make til ki chutney. So I went to Mona's blog and dug it up and alhamdulillah, it came out so well! I must've finished a teaspoon worth just in licking my fingers. Now to hope that the husband likes it too.
P bhai's situation seems to be quite complicated still... there is some leakage again in his brain... they're hoping it's pus or they'll have to operate again... M's in the hospital now, they must have got the news by now... but I'm afraid of disturbing A apa if I call... ya Allah, please bring peace to their family and heal P bhai completely... ameen.
