Holding On

Day 1
At 2pm, we just arrived home from school. "Lapar! Lapar!" "Sakit perut.. lapar!"
I told her to be patient, this is a test from Allah.. She held on till maghrib, alhamdulillah.

Day 2
At 5pm, when I picked her up from KAFA. "Today is the more tiring day. I became like jelly in class!" "I'm thirsty, thirsty." Again, I told her to be patient. I know how she felt, the weather was particularly hot that day. Being cloistered in class almost the whole day under this weather can be a trying experience.

Day 3
She fell asleep at 2pm. "Mengantuk.." So she missed KAFA. I already discussed this matter with DH before the fasting month began, and we decided that it's more important for her to fast than to attend KAFA. So I let her sleep and didn't wake her up for KAFA.

Day 4
It's Saturday! She went back to sleep after sahur and woke up at 9 am. She went through the entire day playing with her friend Amelia, doing workbooks, and playing PS2. She was so energetice, I couldn't resist from asking her "Are you sure you're fasting?"

Day 5
It's Sunday but she didn't go back to sleep after sahur. Amelia slept over at our house last night. After sahur, the two of them decided to play right away. She was energetic and chirpy.

We sent Amelia home at around 2pm. Afterwards when we reached home, she whined "Lapar.." Then she plonked herself on the bed and almost immediately fell asleep. She woke up around 5.45pm! Well, I guess that makes up for the lack of sleep during the past few days.

I know this is tough for her, juggling school, KAFA, fasting and tarawih. And 1 week from now, she'll be sitting for her exams. Oh Allah, please give her the strength, endurance, and patience..Ameen
