My grandmother recently turned 80 years young and was given a surprise party by her family and friends. I was responsible for speaking on behalf of the grandchildren and wanted to share an excerpt of the speech with my readers... It shows the importance of grandparents and how they affect generations.

I've thought about that a lot over the weekend, not having anymore kids.
Being pregnant, once you get over the morning sickness and when your ankles aren't swollen, is a beautiful thing. Its a new beginning, it's a time of great love and excitement, shopping sprees and hubby wanting to cook you anything you crave.

The wannabe sociologist in me is fascinated by people's behavior,
motives and… Continue

Have you ever thought to yourself, I'll write that book someday. I'll work out one day. Well, did it ever happen or are you still waiting for that magic day to appear? Lately, I've been setting small goals for myself daily. The best way for me to achieve is to stay consistent. My small goal of the month is to recite more Quran. I usually read the Quran in the morning after breakfast and it makes me feel super good through the whole day. My day feels more productive. Continue

Life is all about the little details that go unnoticed. The little things that make life wonderful like a warm sunny day when the light comes into your bedroom to wake you up. Or that small available free time when you could pick up a book and read it from cover to cover. Or even going to the bathroom minus a crowd. …

It's the only logical explanation. Because if I were not truly crazy, then the other reality is that I'm a raging bee-otch, an alternative I am not ready to embrace. But certain things keep sending me over the edge, and I'm wondering if there are any made-for-TV movies about mothers ending up in loony bins due to any of the following: Continue
