My husband and I are currently looking for a new home. As you may know, last summer my family and I relocated to my hometown to help care for my aging mother. My town was devastated by tornadoes last April, so there was a run on rentals during the short period of time I had to find a home. Alhamdullilah I found a small home in a quiet neighborhood. The home was smaller than we would have liked, but we were greatful to find it before school started. Having a roof over our heads, being able to pay our bills and be here for my mother was a blessing. We knew then that we would need to find something larger at the first opportunity and the time has arrived. Insha’Allah, we will find a home that fits our needs soon.
My children are getting older, so I dream about once again having an office space. I have three loud boys, and rather than tell them, “Be quiet!” throughout the day, it would be nice to have a quiet room where I can simply close the door when I need to. Ah well, a girl can dream…
This afternoon I had a wonderful phone interview with Laura Sultan, founder of Muslimah Speaks. We had a really good conversation about her website and what inspired her to start it. If you don’t know about this website, do yourself a favor and go there now. It’s such an empowering website for and about Muslim women.
