Alhumdulillah means “All Praise is due to God” and are the words uttered by a Muslim when he/she is expressing gratitude to Allah. I find myself saying this numerous times a day and this post is a collection of moments when I have said Alhumdulillah during the past month.

Things I said Alhumdulillah for in July:

  1. The biggest and best thing to happen this month has been the launch of “Mummy On My Mind Store”. After finally plucking up the courage to do so, I have indeed opened an e-shop on Little Majlis, offering a bespoke service of custom portrait doodles; lovingly designed and individually hand painted. The response has been amazing and I am so excited to begin this creative journey whilst spreading the joy doodling brings to me.
  2. Spontaneous lunch with friends, and getting to know them better.
  3. Creating artwork with Master Z. I really enjoy doing crafts with him, and can’t wait to do it with Little Z too.
  4. Watching the World Cup Final with the family and friends. Also, great when Little Z decides to snooze pretty much the entire time! Hooray!
  5. Hearing Master Z speak Gujrati, our mother tongue, so beautifully. His vocabulary has really grown, and I hope he always feels comfortable to speak in his mother tongue just as fluently as he does now. (It sure will help when it comes to communicating with my grandparents!)
  6. Little Z recovering ever so fast from his 6 month vaccine, with just a little cry after the pinch and a day of mild temperature. Phew.
  7. Exploring the new attraction in Dubai called Dig It, which was literally heaven on earth for Master Z.
  8. Having the privilege of a car with an AC during a sandstorm. I can’t imagine having to walk to my destination in this heat and unforgiving weather.
  9. Exploring the rainforest wildlife at Green Planet Dubai. I also really enjoyed vlogging it and reviving my Youtube channel.
  10. Hearing Little Z say “Mama”. Alhumdulillah. That boy has my heart in the palm of his hands.
  11. Watching photos and videos of my family travelling through Europe, and seeing my niece bond with my parents and baby brother.
  12. Getting a new pair of glasses, since I eventually got round to getting my eyes checked after over a year, with a minute increase in my prescription in one of my eyes.

These are just a few of the many times I uttered the words Alhumdulillah this month. Check out what I was thankful for last month here. Also, here’s a list of what I was thankful for in July last year! What are you thankful for? Feel free to share your moments in the comments section below!
