It feels like it was just yesterday that I received a whatsapp message from my BIL that my sister’s water broke and it feels like it was just yesterday that I first laid my eyes on his angelic face out from the labour room. It was undoubtedly love at a first sight and it really only keeps growing each day.
Back then I always used to imagine how joyful it would be to have him around but little did I know that the word joy was an understatement now that he’s been here. He doesn’t only bring joy but occupies and colours my heart and life in ways I never thought were possible.
With him, I get to experience at least half of what mothers do and I really don’t want to have it any other way. I’m thankful to Allah SWT for letting me be a part of his growing up process – to see him take his first crawl and meal and then his first step, hear his first word and many more firsts.
I pray Allah keeps you in His utmost blessings for every big or small step that you take as you journey through this short borrowed life from him. I pray Allah keeps you protected from every harm and danger. I pray Allah gives you the kind of best things that you need in both worlds.
And so Happy 2nd Birthday to you my darling nephew. I love you so so much.
