Things I said Alhumdulillah for in May 2016…

mummyonmymind alhumdulillah

  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 May:

  1. Our stay at Tilal Liwa Hotel. It was so peaceful being out in the desert, with both my beloved boys.
  2. When Mr Z changes the nappy without being asked. Having such a supportive and hands on daddy to Baby Z is something I am always grateful for.
  3. Long weekends with the family.
  4. Exciting new opportunities, even if they don’t materialise. Sometimes just the thought or possibility of something bigger can get you inspired.
  5. Praying in congregation. A good change from praying at home, and reminds you of the strength of unity.
  6. Getting my blog back. I had a blog scare around mid-may when it went under DDoS attack, and the website was down for a few days. I was so thankful to have it back and it really made me realise how much this blog is worth to me.
  7. Baby Z’s Birthday. I still can’t believe my little monkey is 2 years old!
  8. A well timed poo from Baby Z, just before we go out for the evening and change into lovely brand new clothes. If you are a parent, you will know this euphoric feeling.
  9. Cutting in to a perfectly ripe avocado.
  10. Enjoying the first watermelon of summer….before you start sneezing…
  11. Counting down to Ramadan

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. What are you thankful for? Feel free to share your moments in the comments section below!
