Birthday Doas

It's his 38th birthday. I had to work today. We got up in the morning, had a bit of french toast and baked beans and I drove to work.

I came home in the afternoon, had tea with the kids and later dinner. The usual remote control squabbles ended the evening.

Its another day ended.

"We didn't go to ayah's grave Umi." said my little girl.

"No sayang. Umi had to work, remember?"

"Remember when she wanted to bring the cake and have ayah's birthday party at the cemetery Umi?" teased her older brother, as he pointed and laughed at his younger sister.

"I can't remember that!" cried my princess.

"You were such a little girl Darling. You were only 4." I replied.

"I didn't get to spend much time with Ayah, and now, I can't remember much of it." she sulked.

"It's ok. The important thing is that you should remember Ayah in your daily doas. And what ever good you both do, Ayah will get the pahala. And that will be your gifts for him, every single day of your life. Isn't that wonderful?" I asked.

The kids pondered on it for a few minutes, until the remote control issue came up again......

Its another day ended.
