Homemaking Thoughts

I used to feel so trapped in the walls of my home. Kids running, hubby wanting, time is ticking and the day drags on oh ...so..... slow. I felt like I was not living. In the sense of , is this what my life really comes down to? I'm just changing diapers, cooking meals, and cleaning for the rest of my days? Wow... how depressing I thought.

I don't know what happened, I don't know at all, but I woke up one day and saw things differently. I think it was all those motivational blogs. I began to see my purpose in a new light.

I do more in my home than I imagined. Really, think about what we do in our home. We feed the hungry, not only their bellies but their minds. We love and nurture them, helping them to grow into loving individuals who will love and nurture their own children one day inshaAllah.

I have a purpose, and if I do these things well in my home, I have then helped add a person to society that will make it better beithnillah! WOW talk about a lot on my shoulders... I went from thinking I was carrying nothing, to holding a bolder :) mashaAllah but with the help of Allah I can carry the bolders the best way possible.  I'm 29 with five children, I use them as my inspiration alhamdulilah homemaking has allowed me to do more than just sit around at home or "stay" at home, I am homemaking with a purpose.

Waking up each day to fulfill that purpose, in prayers that Allah is pleased and He is guiding along the way to take care of the home and those who live in it.

It is not possible to be happy homemaking if you feel like what you are doing is nothing. I'm telling you it is a lot...  it's a honor really mashaAllah. Allah entrusted me, with a family to take care of and home? What a blessing, and with each blessing we should take care of them to the best of our ability.

Naturally I still get tired, but it is from doing things for my family, and in doing things for them, my heart feels good and my heart feels happy. I love all my children and husband, I thank Allah He blessed me with them and they inspire me to write the books I write, to homeschool, to enjoy what I do..because I enjoy them.

I love what I do, because I am doing it for people that I love.

I Wake up every day to tell myself, there is so much blessings in this life and go into the day thinking of what a blessing it is... and not a burden

Well until my next post....happy homemaking with purpose

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

5 Ways To Love Yourself MORE

Yep, there I am, jumping on the trampoline in my sisters yard yesterday. As I told a friend, you can't help but smile on a trampoline. I couldn't jump and be angry, or feel sad at the same time. 
Alhamdulilah I felt like reaching for the sky, free, and alive. I haven't felt that way since my husband passed away last month (December 20th, 2016). Life has not been the same. Yesterday I decided to get some fresh air and I felt good. It was nice to step outside for a little bit.
My last post was written on loving your husband's more, which can also be applied to wives. Our time here isn't long, and in losing my husband, I am extra reminded to encourage wives to love their husbands more. That has always been part of my blog's goal, but God is telling me to remind women more, through my own experience.

But in loving your husbands more, do not forget yourself. You are important. Yes, some women need to be reminded that they are important. You have to take care of you…
