(Edited on January 2015 for the ‘Love Is’ series)
Love is…finding the sweetness in your life.
Sometimes, the sweetness of this life doesn’t come in obvious forms. We think we will taste the sweetness once we become rich with money, or if we drive fancy cars and have 100’s of friends. On the contrary – sweetness has nothing to do with money or fame.
If we look closer, we will see that we are immersed in sweetness all the time regardless of how much money we have and how popular we are! There lies sweetness in the kind words we hear from our loved ones and even strangers you meet at the grocery store, in the food we taste that has been made from the loving hands of our family members and friends, in hearing our loved ones laugh…even being able to hear, talk, and see are sweet blessings! Make an effort to get past the bitterness of this life, and remember all the sweet blessings Allah (God) has gifted YOU! Once you recognize the sweetness around you, you will make an effort to recognize it more often! Peace and love everyone! © The Muslimah Mommy (2014)
