I almost forgot about it though my family had just celebrated it yesterday at my Adik’s house.
Yes, i know many of them. But, closely i only know 2. Both of them are the loves of my life, my father and my hubby.
My father is a great father, no doubt about it. He taught us basic Islam, solat and Quran till we left the house. When he was young, he migrated from his kampung to the big city so that his kids will get better educations. And Alhamdulillah, all 10 of us went to universities and live succesfully.
When i was younger, i thought he was very ce’ngeh or garang, even all our orang kampung knew how garang he was. Some of his ex students still afraid of him even after they grew up and have families. But when he got stroke in 1992, everything changed. From a garang and respected man, he became silent and soft hearted. He also eventually loss all his close friends either due to their time came or just because they have no more similarities with him (due to the stroke).
Now, it has been 18 years of having stroke, he is still smiling and excited whenever his children and grandchildren are visiting. With his wheelchair and stick, slowly he will enlighten all his 36 grandchildren, kiss their heads and give them angpau.
At 84 years old, he never tired of his life though i know loneliness is killing him since mom passed away 5 years ago. But with solat, dua’ and Quran, he waits his time peacefully. Alhamdulillah, he never got bored or depressed as so many elderly nowadays.
May Allah gives the best for his life. May Allah gives him good health and peaceful heart and mind.
My darling hubby…
Too many things to write about him..because everything is so special about him.
One thing i love him as a father to my four beautiful kids is because he was always caring during all my pregnancies, always brave during all my deliveries and he was very patient during my confinements.
Not all husbands are willing to do that. Sacrifice their time, their exhaustion, look at all the blood during deliveries and lastly ‘berpuasa’ during tempoh berpantang. Some men even find another woman when their wives are pregnant or in confinement. Together during good times but not at difficult times. In other words, my darling hubby is very humble and not selfish when it comes to helping his wife.
My hubby is absolutely a great father. He is enthusiastic in parenting our kids and willing to learn and change. To him, his family is everything and he is willing to struggle and protect for his “Baiti Jannati”.
I love you my darling. Thank you for being such a wonderful father.
