If only it was possible to trade my fair skin that I never asked for
If only I could give up my iPhone 7 that I never asked for
If only I could exchange my business seat that I never asked for
If only I could pay cash
If only there was a price tag
I would have paid for it
I would have paid for it.
And when people thought about oh how lucky
It comes with a price
Oh it comes with a price
A price no amount of money can buy.
When your seven year old asked you: Teacher, are you sad?
Me: *Caught of guard* Ya! Because, you are not concentrating!
Her curiosity was so genuine and pure that I wondered just what if I said yes and I told her what made me sad?
Amazing how I actually almost decide on something in particular on an issue, without having anyone to talk about, then I went to a talk that actually offered me another perspective on that issue.
Not that I don’t have anyone to talk about. I think I would consider myself very very picky on who I want to talk to. And apparently those people are usually busy (and may never reply).
I was literally going ‘Look! You feel like you don’t have anyone to talk to and Allah sends a scholar/teacher to address what you are dealing with.’
ونحن أقرب إليه من حبل الوريد
Pernah dengar makcik-makcik kutuk anak dara (kau) sekarang tak boleh masak?
And then there will be those ‘Ey dulu kite kecik-kecik dah pandai masak’
Kalau bukan pasal Tuhan dan ingin beradab, dah lame nak cakap ‘Ey cik dah tua-tua belum bace Quran lagi?’
Innaa lillaaah innaa lillaaah.
‘Kalau cik bersabar dgn saye mcm mane ustaz bersabar dgn cik, dh compom saye expert. Tapi cik dok tahu kutok je.’
When reflecting back the moment when my friend and my mum were supporting my weight to enable me to walk when I was sick a few days ago, I was reminded that “in every difficulty there is ease. In every difficulty there is ease.”
There will be people that will tolerate you regardless knowing or not knowing what you are going through.
And there will be those that will tolerate you only after knowing your circumstances, which is understandable. (We are dealing with people here aren’t we)
I am pretty blessed to have a few ones in the former group. I actually have someone that never knew what I am going through but I can tell you, besides mum, I can always count on her.
