Before you speak..

My dear sister, Cz, once shared a status -
Before you speak:
T - is is True?
H - is it Helpful?
I - is it Inspiring?
N - is it Necessary?
K - is it Kind?

.. And I really like that. Because it is 100% true.

Being older, one is usually associated with the attributes of wiser, thoughtful and calm.. Especially in their speech.

Knowing myself now for the past 32 years (on which, I can only recollect memories starting the age of 5), I have established the fact that I have to at least try harder to do less of the talking and dive more into the thinking. Yup. Hehe..

For the record, it has been more than 4 straight years now that I have included "talk less" in my New Year resolution just because the outcome by the year end isn't as I have expected. :-!

In one hadith related by Abu Hurairah, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said;
"Let whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day either speak good or remain silent."
Scary isn't it. May Allah guide us all.

And so.. To wrap up this short birthday entry, I thank you to all for your wishes and that I pray for Allah's forgiveness for all my past and future wrong doings especially when it was/is linked to my t-o-u-n-g-e. Aamiin :-D And to those whom I've erred, whether I did it intentionally or unintentionally, to also forgive me. May Allah bless you.

Today is Bahim’s fourth birthday. Happy Birthday Bahim. May you grow up to become an Ustaz cum Mujahiddin cum Muhandis cum at-tajirun cum my-big-boy-soleh. Ummi loves you Bahim. You are the best eldest son ever!

Time must have flashed before my eyes becuse it seems like only yesterday that we were all busy moving things into our home and that the baby size you were fast asleep in neklin’s arm. You were so little at that time, and now you are so much taller! ..Although, I must say that your teachers at Educ*re still call you “my-little-boy”. 

This morning, when Jia, Fatihah and Ummi started singing to you the happy birthday song, your face elated! You seemed so surprise! Hehe.. At the end of the birthday song you said, “..but I still didn’t see the CAKE” which made me burst into laughter. Adeh~ Yayah then asked what type of cake you wanted, to no surprises you said “I want an Angry bird birthday cake”. Nasib baik however, Yayah manage to sway you to go for an ice-cream birthday cake instead. (Mana sempat dah ummi nak cari Angry bird birthday cake ni. Hehe..)

Between you and Che Che, most of the time you guys are good together; eat, play car, watch frozen, play angry birds toys, watch angry birds short movie, read, play with Fatihah, watch Pony, drink, sleep, tells story, play games, watch tv, bath.. Alhamdulillah, all is good. But there were times when you would pinch your Che che, show silly faces to your Che che and babap your Che che when you didn’t get what you wanted from Che che. Adeh~~ I know it is part of growing up, but please ek Bahim, I hope you will love and care for your Che che. Please don't fight with your Che che Ok. She helps you a lot you know. ;-)

While you treat Che che as your bestEST friend, you have treated Fatihah like your baby. Thank you for playing with Fatihah especially when you do let Fatihah put your angry birds collection into her mouth.   
Cheeky Bahim playing with Fatihah :-)
Happy Birhday sayang!~

*********
On one fine day:
Me: Sayang, that is not how you do it.. 
Bahim: Do you call me ‘sayang’? Why do you call me ‘sayang’? 
Me: I sometimes call you and Che che ‘sayang’ because I love you.

:D
