God bless the Invisible Thread! - fathers and mothers, sons and daughters...

The Invisible Thread
There is an invisible thread
Between your heart and your child's,
And every tremor, every passion and peace,
Every fear, hope, every ambition and wish
Passes like mercury between the two of you,

So think beautiful things and thoughts,
Reflect with candour and gratitude
For all that the Lord has wrought,
Above all, that which is your child,
And the invisible thread 
That is between the two
Of you.

I am off to Singapore again shortly for work. So I shall miss my Saturday with Mika, my 9-year old son.

It is weary sometimes, working apart and away from your children. Not being able to come home to them. But this is just a two day's delay. My esteem for those who have to work outstation or overseas for months (or even years!) on end without seeing their children cannot be over estimated.

And the love that such parents have for their children - to work in a foreign country just so they  can give their children a better life?

God bless all fathers and mothers, all sons and daughters!

And God bless the Invisible Thread!

Have a wonderful Friday, sunshine.

wa min Allah at-taufiq

Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
