Kau Ilhamku..... my inspiration, my love, my son.
I have always wanted to write, to have a blog of my own, but never really feel that I have anything interesting to write or that I can write anything at all! There were times when I thought that I had so much ideas in my mind, so much that words seems to flow easily from nowhere but later, when I tried to pen them down, nothing...nothing at all! I couldn't even conjure up a single thought. How I wished that I could have some photographic gadgets that could perhaps capture what was on my mind at the time so later I could just transfer or transform them into writing....
Time goes by, life goes on, thoughts come and go... So maybe now is the right time to start writing... for myself, before old age creeps up and I forget all these wonderful and sometimes painful experiences. And also for Ilham, maybe one day when he reads these writings, he will truly understand how much his parents love and care for him. Maybe then he will become a better person, insyaAllah.
So, what to write...naturally it's about Ilham, he is my life and how I love him so much. Sometimes when I looked at him while he was sleeping, I would say a prayer of thanks that Allah has lent me such joy. How I wish I could remember every stages and every aspects of his growing up but alas, I am only human....
Thus, I decide to write down these experiences particularly his schooling and life in The Netherlands
