I often write about my husband, Masood. It won’t be an entire post about him, but I would somehow include him in the topic. How can I not? My life revolves beautifully around him. This has made one of my lovely sisters wonder about me and my marriage with Masood. Umm Travis, also mother to Mishmish and Mohalebeya, is having some Tea Break Thoughts and wonders:
Sister Nadia, who is Walking Through, often talks about and has comments from her husband Masood on her blog. I wonder, how is marriage for you behind closed doors? Is it really all pink and fuzzy (ma shaa Allah)?
So Umm Travis, my marriage is a blessing, Alhumdulillah. After all the mistakes that I have committed in the past, I am forever grateful that Allah still considers me fit for this beautiful gift: the chance to live life all over again, and most importantly, with the man who fears Him most.
Masood and I are best friends. Over the year that we’ve been together, I have learned so much from him. He’s the most soft-spoken, caring, gentle, and responsible person I have ever known. We have our own share of arguments, but they remain behind closed doors, uttered in soft whispers of carefully chosen words, and sorted out in less than 30 minutes. I’ve grown so used to having him around that I can’t imagine life otherwise.
So yes, overall, my married life is all pink and fuzzy with lots of sunshine and roses, Alhumdulillah. Most of us, as married couples, spend a lot of time and energy working hard to make our marriage work, when all we often need is to just sit back, relax, and enjoy each other’s company.
That said, I also wonder about some of my blogger sisters.
Jussaemon has been squeezing out some great-tasting Original Juice about her life as a Singaporean married to a Pakistani man, Zubair. Now that she’s going to become a mother soon, InshaAllah, I wonder about her plans on how to bring up their child. Will she still work full-time? Which of the two cultures will she want the child to be more adapted to?
Leaving a lucrative job behind, Mary has been taking Everyday Baby Steps, to find self-fulfillment through writing. She is, in fact, already on the road to becoming a professional writer! She’s currently contributing to several interesting websites. I wonder how she manages it all: her new writing gigs, home, husband, and three adorable kids? I wonder what she wants to accomplish next. Will she start her own website?
Misspecs gives us The View From Behind My Specs, by writing beautifully about life and what goes on around her. I love the words that she chose to convey her message accross. I wonder where she sees herself five years from now? I wonder how she’s like as a person; what it would be like if I get to meet her in person?
Mubi is one of the several talented, young female bloggers, who I love to visit often. I love reading her posts on about everything. She manages to add a dash of humor in almost every situation. I wonder how she is really like under those Scarlet Wings. How will she describe herself in 5 sentences?
Juggling a career, home, and husband, Nisa still finds time to blog and sew! She’s like a super woman who somehow finds time to work everything out. She’s a Pakistani living in Singapore, with an Indian husband and an adorable son. I wonder whether she has plans to settle in a different country. I wonder how a weekend is like in her household, and hear her personally say, “What a life!“
So ladies, you’re tagged!
