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…

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....





You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …

Remember Who Your Husband Is

On the eve of our 9th year anniversary, I'm doing a lot of reflecting. I saw a blog post entitled "Remember Who Your Husband Is." and the title stood out to me but in a different way so I decided to write my own post. I'm reflecting on nine years of marriage and who my husband is.

So who is he?

Lets remember ..

He is a gift from Allah.

Allah blessed me with him and it is my great honor to take care of my gift.
He is not to be abused, mistreated, and taken for granted. Allah has put us together and  for that I'm thankful Alhamdulilah. I'm here to assist him in the best way possible. Allah did not burden me with him, He did not curse me, but what He did do is bless me Alhamdulilah! When you know you are blessed you show gratitude!

He is the leader of our home.

Not only did Allah send me this gift. He also put me under his leadership. In remembering who he is, we must remember and respect his position of leadership. We should always pray that Allah is constantl…
