The world is a stage

When being checked or told off , however gentle one does it, the reaction one gets will always be the same .
If it is A, he will accept/agree and go all apologetic ; shows remorse and promises to change or not to repeat.
If B, he will look at you in disbelieve and pause, swallowing all your comments and suggestions and starts being in the defensive
If C, he screams, shouts , just don't listen, keeps repeating his why when who what how and then condemns himself and use that as his shield for what he sees as an attack on him (his low self esteem actually) , far away from the main point
but if D, not only does he screams shouts about not being appreciated respected but starts listing all YOUR faults.
Thank you ALLAH for HELPing ME to be strong and to move on .

In the new car!

Wuuuh! Its been sometime since I last wrote. Granmas getting a little weary...?Oh no! Tired coz of the weather and not the age InsyaAllah!

Sometime back when I bought my MYvi my grandchildren decided to take a ride in their granmas new car.Halfway down the road they felt hungry.I stopped to buy some tit-bits. However they looked at me in shock and disbelieve when I stopped them from opening the wrappers until we reached home. They sat quietly at the backseat devouring the wrapper and its contents with their eyes.The journey back was extra quiet and kind of added the mileage.I strictly tell myself not to give in and that they need to know that travelling in granmas new car means just that! No munching! No eating! Therefore no crumbs!

It was an unusual ride. Not only was there no crumbs, there was also no laughter, no joy, no teasing, no singing and no fun.

Today, we had another 'New Car' ride. History repeats itself yet differently. Everyone was hungry. Auntie , whose new car it was stopped to get tit-bits and everyone ate happily, tucking-in, in the new car. There was laughter. there was joy, singing and eating and there were crumbs..... But who cares! they are just crumbs!
