TaSin wished me a Happy Labor Day this morning at 7 AM. We'd just completed Imsaak and we gearing up for the long day of deprivation ahead. I guess this is the wrong attitude. Let me try this again, we were gearing up for a day of meditation and character and soul building...cleansing the nafs or spirit self, washing the soul...kind of day during the final days of the Blessed Month of Ramadan.
26 years ago, I was at Alta Bates Hospital laboring over this child, now woman...lovely in all ways. She's been a blessings--as some surprises are. Neither one of my children was planned per se, but both are a blessing and I think I am a better person for their love.
