I always remind my self how great God’s love is and how He bestows us all with an everlasting love and affection.
This is about Aini, my daughter, how she survived her Bell’s Palsy illness and what it has made her into. I know neither I nor my husband can ever hold our tears whenever we remember our days back then, when Aini got the illness, but crying won’t solve anything.
What’s happened has happened and there’s no returning back to the past. We had gone through our foolishness and walked upon our fate, and still we can change nothing that has occurred before. What’s more important is the time being and the future. The three of us still hold on our hope to God that He will somehow give us a miracle and bring Aini’s smile back again. Aamiin…
A Heaven’s Blessing Called Child
Life might be hard and full of burdens, but there is always time to feel yourself blessed with everything that God has given in life. To me, one of His blessings that I have always been thankful for is His giving me a chance to be a Mother.
Yes, I have always feel blessed to be a Mom!
Ever since the first months of my pregnancy until today, being a Mom to a beautiful, lovely little girl is an amazing thing in my life. In fact, seeing her smile and holding her close to me are some of the things I crave for everyday.
My daughter’s name is Raden Ayu Athifah Qurrota ‘Aini, or Aini for short. She was born on February 14th 2006 through a caesar surgery.
Her name ‘Raden Ayu’ are given names from my husband’s family, a salutation almost similar to ‘Lady’ in English word. She gets this names because my husband heirs the royal blood of the old Banten Kingdom in East Java, Indonesia.
Meanwhile, ‘Athifah Qurrota ‘Aini’ are Arabic words which mean ‘A Pure Woman who Soothes the Eyes’. They are kind of poetic, because the words ‘Soothes the Eyes’ don’t really mean ‘cooling sore eyes’ but rather ‘pleasing anyone who sees her’ with her kindness and good attitude.
Though it’s never an easy thing to be her Mom, let alone a perfect one, I always feel happy to have her in my life. She colors my days everyday, and our destiny to be bonded as Mom and daughter is something I always thank God for.
