Pick yourself up, Dust yourself off!

It is the first and hopefully the last time, I title a blog post on a song lyric (and I humbly apologize)but no other words adequately describe the state of this blog and its owner. I have neglected this blog  for so long that I can practically pluck cobwebs off the sidebar and I would do that if I had the energy OR the inclination to do that. Instead, I  will use just one more post to have a minor pity party before we can move to our regular CSR ramblings.

My son who is 6 suffered a very severe eye injury in August. We have been to hell and back in the past 2 months and now that we know that the final visual outcome is not as good as we had expected, we have managed to make peace with the situation and accept it as God’s will. The last 2 months have been a frenzy of doctors and surgeries and ultrasounds and appointments and I’d rather have all my teeth extracted without anesthesia than go through that time again. The good news is that we are so much stronger as a family than we gave ourselves credit for. My little man especially is such a trooper that during all that time, he was the one cheering us on!

Soooooo that explains my awfully long absence and I just want to thank all the people who have been reading this blog when it was active and the new ones who haven’t read anything yet. You people have silently supported me by not giving up on this dusty old place and I can’t thank you enough for that. I promise it will be back to its regular self pretty soon. Till then please do keep my son and my family in your thoughts.

    Welcome back Bushra… :)

    It was a moment of concern for all your readers when you left without any notice. But since you are back now, everybody will be able to enjoy your write-ups again, learn and acquire some useful information and at the same time contribute with his/her thoughts.

    I am very sorry to hear about what you have gone through. May God bless your son with good health for all his life and prosperity for the whole family.

  2. I am really looking forward to reading you Bushra.

    In the meantime, je vous souhaite le meilleur à vous et à votre famille.

  3. Been in my thoughts and prayers since I found out, Bushra. Take care and shine ever on.
