This is what I am looking for…to live my life…..and love it……..accept it…..the good the bad……and all the ugly. You heard of love the skin you in…..Well I wanna LOVE the Life Im in…..

what more can I ask for

As I look into his face I see

A glimps of the boy he used to be
Where is he
Now stands this tall boy in front of me
Long arms
Long leg replace the short one I used to wash
his feet are the size of a small man
His eyes are as bright as crystal
His thoughts and ideas are just as bright
His smile will light a room
Just like his dad
His smile showes his feelings
When he is really happy HE makes me happy just to see him
He uses his arms to comfort me
"Mom" he says, I will love you forever.
What more can I ask for I think to myself
I will always love you more I always say back
HE smiles and kisses me.
what more can I ask for
he uses his strong legs to walk to the mosque to pray alone
I am almost 10. I have to be a man now
Allah said at ten I have to pray all the time
these are his thoughts
what more can I ask for
He helps his sister learn her Arabic
She hates it he loves it
he tells her she has to learn it for Allah
What more can I ask for
He lets his sister fall asleep in his lap he brushes her hair with his hands
he loves her so much
what more can I ask for
I want to be a chef is his dream for this year
He makes such a mess and he fixes and mixes the food that one day
he says will make him rich
with his money he will buy me a house right next to his
that way he will always have me close
always have me near
this is the love of a child
my child
my son
true love
what more can I ask for

I love you AJ

I will love you forever
i am so sorry for any pain I caused you
As a mom it has been hard
as I look at you now
i wish I could go back and do this again
I would change so much
but never you
I would always pick you
you as my son
I love you so mch
always stay strong
keep you faith in Allah
with him as your guide you will never go wrong
Live life to the fullest keep believing in yourself
you can do ANYTHING even be a chef
you will one day be the man you wish you were now
dont rush
take you time
learn all you can
I will be here to guide you as much as I can
with my arms to prtect you and shield you from harm
and my prayes to Allah to keep us anchored in storms
my eyes are full of tears I can not write anymore
just know I am with you in my thought, my prayers, my heart

I love you today as I do everyday
what more can I ask for in a son.........
