Sometimes you don’t see what blessings you truly have for years and years. Some things you only see after decades have passed. However traumatic the events immediately afterwards, now I see what incredible mercies were packed into that introduction of ours all those years ago. Yes, there was opposition, my family alarmed by the speed of events, but even so everything slotted into place so easily. Back then, miracles, one after the other… your name… your face… and yet still more, hibernating, awaiting their moment to surface. Alhamdulilah. Alhamdulilah for these blessings.
