Asalamu aliakaum wa rahmatullah wa barkatoo,
I'll start with the bad news.
The bad news is that I will miss you. I will miss the feeling of sisters coming together and responding to each other. I will miss reading your personal experiences that you would write in the comments. I will miss meeting new sisters here.
I will miss opening up my email and seeing a letter that I know Allah MADE me see because I also needed a reminder...because I also needed to think about something, to reconsider my own actions.
I will miss the trust you put in me to help you.
I will miss the love.
It's funny how time flies. Four years ago, I decided to start Dear Little Auntie...I had no idea what t it would come to mean to me or how difficult this post would be to write. I remember registering the blog name, sitting down and playing with the banner, writing the first post, and waiting for questions..and wondering "Will this really work?"
And it did.
Alhamdillah! Praise be to Allah. And alhamdullilah for amazing readers and courageous questioners. Alhamdillah for a good crew and a wonderful team.
Yes...I will miss it all.
I will miss all of that because it is time for me to close Dear Little Auntie.
And here comes the good news...
because I have become a "Little Mommy".
As a 'little mommy', I am still struggling to put things together. My number one priority right now is bonding and helping my baby and that means I'm just not being able to manage this blog. And I realize that this is unfair to those who send in questions. You deserve an answer or at least a response..and since I no longer can manage to do that, then, it's time to say....
May Allah bless you.
May Allah guide you.
For those who are thinking of sacrificing something for His sake, May He bless you with something better. Make each day easier for you than the last.
For those whose hearts are hurting, May He heal your hearts and bless you with His Love.
May we meet in paradise.
