At the moment, my worries are on my studies. I am a PhD mom and needs to concentrate on being a student, mother as well as a wife. I can't go to uni like I used to. When I was single I went out of the house at 7.30am and came home at around 11pm. Well, gone are the days. From now on, it's work from home. But that's a big challenge because there's too many distractions at home. There's laundry, food in the kitchen and a baby who wants my attention. But, I am working on to be a master juggler. InsyaaAllah I can cope. I am not the only PhD mom out there. I know so many PhD moms and they have completed their thesis on time. InsyaaAllah I can do the same. My other challenge is that, I am a new mother and I have little clue on how to take care of a baby.
Anyway, I look at Medina and I am reminded at how much I wanted her. I prayed to Allah for a child and Allah answered my prayer as soon as I got married. Alhamdulillah. For that I am forever grateful. I love her so much. Little Medina is growing up healthily, Alhamdulillah. I look at her everyday and see a chubbier and longer baby. MasyaAllah! Time passed by so quickly. In a blink of an eye she has grown. Amazing! I don't want to miss these moments. My parents even offered to take care of her in Malaysia so that I can concentrate on my PhD in New Zealand. I don't think I want that, no matter how tempting it sounds. PhD can wait. Medina is my priority. When she needs me, I have to close my laptop. When she is asleep, I open it up again. I know in my heart that Allah will help me. InsyaaAllah. He wouldn't give something that you can't handle right?
A doa I found to ease your days...
Read it everyday. InsyaaAllah Allah will make things easy for us. Ameen.
