HB: "Ma.. (Rima), how are things?"
Rima: "I'm so tired. My eyes are falling shut - I don't know how I'm gonna finish all these orders"
Sounds familiar? Probably to those that do take orders...
My wife is a superwoman. A stressful husband, a stressful daughter, a son who spends more time outside the house than sometimes helping inside the house... a house to keep in order and still finding time doing what she loves: Baking.
It has now been more than three years that she has been blogging. Having her ups and downs. But she takes it in her stride - as she always does:
Other people making business out of the recipes she posts: "Amal"
Other people copying her style of photography: "What to do"
Other people taking credit where no credit is due: "It's ok..., let them be..."
Somehow, nothing really gets her worked up - and that's what I love about her (instead I get mad on her behalf :) .
In this month of Ramadhan probably I should learn a thing or two from my wife:
- To be patient
- To be more understanding
- To let things go
- To pray more
- To be on my best behaviour - self-control (not to raise my voice, not to get angry etc.)
- To think less about oneself and think more about others
- To be true to oneself
Rima is probably one of the most selfless people I have met in my life as many of you know from her blog. She is always willing to share, explain and help out wherever and whenever she can.
Rima, you started the blog so that Sonia has something to refer to when she is older. I also hope that it is a means for me to not forget that your heart extends not only at home but to everybody else out there too. I love you.
To all readers out there, a blessed Ramadhan, and thank you for the support you give to Rima (through your comments and shopping in her store).

PS2: (not the Sony one) - I added a facebook account for Bisous A Toi yesterday. It's just for streaming of her blog posts. In case you want to add this blog, click on the badge on the side or just search for BISOUS A TOI on facebook.
