Happy Mommy's Day!

Today is Mother's day for mommies all over the world! And am I glad that I'm one of them! 1995,1996 and 1999 will be forever etched in my heart and mind. The happiness of giving birth to a little girl and two little boys. And, the sadness of losing my precious baby girl...Well...that was 12 years ago...the sadness will always be there but the joy of bringing up two boisterous boys really fulfilled me. I am SO very glad and lucky to have them. They are my pride and joy. They couldn't be anymore far apart in character. One is a silent rebel and the other has no qualms about showing his displeasure..hehehe. One dislikes to be mollycuddled and the other just likes to be smothered with kisses from his mama...

Being a mum to 2 boys definitely requires a different type of parenting. I need to be tough(physically! They love to have wrestle sessions with me and believe me you can be reduced to tears if you can't stand being KO'd by them..hahaha), patient and firm. I am always the "garang" one but also always the person that they can come to when they need someone to talk to. I like that. I want to be a parent and also a friend to them.

Now that they are 11 and 8, it will be just a matter of few years before they enter teenage years..and man, that would require a different set of parenting skills I'm sure! I have to deal with teenage 'rebel without a cause' phase, girls problems and God knows what else! I shall miss them being my little babies...

To my sons, Amirul Hakim and Amirul Arif, Mama will always, always love both of you and hope that I would always be able to be there for you whenever you need me, Insya Allah.

Hakim and Arif still sleep in my bed most nights...

Like Attracts Like

Hi guys...I have been reading this book. It's about the power of thoughts. Your thoughts. It's very interesting and after reading a few chapters, I found what was written were surprisingly true to a certain point and induced deep thoughts about certain things that's going on in my life. I'm still reading it...and as I go on, I will retrieve excerpts of the content and post it in my blog periodically. Just as a way to share it with you. The book is called The Secret. Your (even sceptics) input and comments of these posts are appreciated.

The Law of Attraction
Everything that's coming into your life you are attracting into your life. And it is attracted to you by virtue of the images you're holding in your mind. It's what you're thinking. Whatever is going on in your mind you are attracting to you.

"Every thought of yours is a real thing - a force"

Like Attracts Like
The law of attraction says "like attracts like" and so as you think a thought, you are also attracting like thoughts to you.

Our job as humans is to hold on to the thoughts of what we want, make it absolutely clear in our minds what we want, and from that we start to invoke one of the greatest laws in the Universe, and that's the Law of Attraction. You become what you think about most, but you also attract what you think about most.

"If you see it in your mind, you're going to hold it in your hands" be continued...
