As soon as I finished that, while warming-up the car to send my daughter to the bus stop, I opened the packet. It initially looked familiar but still I couldn't even guess who it might be from and what was inside it. I don't think my husband would surprise me this way (he's much too predictable) but who else was going to do something like this? Hehehe...
I read the letter and shaking with joy and excitement I called my husband straight-away...
Mode: Jiwang with O-Town's All or Nothing playing on the car radio (ignore the lyrics), I almost shed a tear or two...
You see, it's my birthday tomorrow and I got an early birthday surprise today. The gift was all the way from my hubby's beloved sisters who were based all around the world. I'm so happy and would have never imagined that I'd receive such thing in the post!
It was so nice of you Mona, Sara, Jat and DikYam and of course Mama to even to think about my birthday. I am so thankful to have my husband and how lucky I am to be part of the family. You've always made me feel like a real sister to you all. I can't say anything but a Million Thank Yous to all of you. You all really made my day. Only Allah can repay your kindness. InsyaAllah.
An Advance Happy Birthday to
Hisham ..... ME!
Missing all of you.
