how time flies...

A text message I received a year ago while in Palestine- my uncle Ebu and his wife Yasmin passed away. May God bless them and their surviving children...

My emotions have taken a standstill, for which is more heart ripping- seeing a 70 year old mother pouring her heart out at the loss of her child, her baby boy, or that innocent 4year old child asking to see the face of his smiling father, and then smile at the sight of him, unable to fully or even semi understand the consequence of what has just occured...



A reminder of how short life is, how we need to make the most of the time we have, and follow the advices of caring for the orphans, poor and oppressed..
