Salam and good evening dear friends and readers,
It’s been a very busy weekend for me starting from Friday evening until today. From wedding to engagement, aqiqah to Hari Raya Open House and household chores. When it comes to a family function or gathering I’m thought since young however difficult it could be we must try to present ourselves or make ourselves available for each function. It is actually a good investment for my mom and late father. When we were young, tagging along with them to functions are normal. Getting to know relatives is my mom top most priority and now she gets the returned.
Everywhere we went the elders will keep on mentioning their cousins and sister done a good job bringing us up and make us appreciate and value the family ties. So because of that I had a busy and tiring weekend but mission accomplished. My siblings and I give our full support and make an effort to presence and by helping where possible for the wedding. At the end of the day whether it is family, friends or members of the public we do have our responsibilities towards everyone and everything starts from home.
I do sincerely hope my dear friends and readers had an enjoyable weekend and I wish a wonderful week ahead to all.
Take care and do not forget to give our gratitude to all we have for now and the future.
A Family is like a circle
The connection never ends
And even if at times it breaks
In time it always mends
A family is like the stars
Somehow there always there
Families are those who help
Who support and always care
A Family is like a book
The endings never clear
But through the pages of the book
Their love is always near
A family is many things
With endless words that show
Who they are and what they do
And how they teach you so you know
But don’t be weary if it’s broken
Or if through time its been so worn
Families are like that
They’re split up and always torn
But even if this happens
Your family will always be
They help define just who you are
And will be apart of you eternally
