While browsing through some random homeschooling blogs this evening, I was directed to another blog which belongs to a lady in the U.S, who in August lost her son. He was 3 yrs old, and had gone missing and had later been found in the pond. I have been reading through the mother's blog and have cried so much, I think being a mother myself, I can imagine the heartache that this woman must be feeling. It has just made me reflect and be more grateful to Allaah for the children he has bestowed upon me, alhamdulillaah. I feel so guilty for getting angry with them when they squabble and play up, and shouting and not spending as much time as I should be with them, while they're young. It should serve as a reminder to us that this life does not last forever, and Allaah can take us at any time, no matter what our age may be, let's make the most of the time we have with our children insha Allaah, have fun with them, thank Allaah for them and be grateful.
