my creative space - struggling

With Ramadan nearly over, there is a bit of Eid preparation going on with the kids. 



There are house guests to entertain.

There is crochet happening.



And with the daily mundane events that take over our lives, there is a shock to bring us out of the slumber of life. Yesterday, I found out that a second cousin of mine was in a serious motorbike accident. He's a 21 year old university student. After three operations, he can now sit up but he has no movement in his legs. He's neck and spine are badly damaged and he has been told that he will not be able to walk! It's very shocking and I can't imagine what his parents are going through. But it makes me think about the things I take for granted and how none of the big things in life are in my control. Not at all.

Please remember him in your du'aas (prayers). 

More creative spaces!

Every thing look really yummy and the colours for the yarn so soft and gentle...
Congratulations!

So sorry to hear about your cousin. My aunt was recently in a very bad accident, hit from behind at high speed. She has a long road to recovery. We certainly never know what the day holds for us so we must do and be our best every day. Blessings, Tammy
