A new beginning

I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are.

It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end.

Because how could the end be happy?

How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened?

But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.

Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now.

Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?

That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it's worth fighting for.

Some people know what's going on in my life right now. For those who don't, it is okay. It's not that I don't want to tell you, but grief sometimes is not that easy to share especially when you are trying to put them behind you.

Through it all, I feel like I am blessed. Blessed with the love and blessed with the bundle of chances given to me to make things right. I am grateful for the people that Allah had given me, who have been helping me through these difficult times. Thank you so much for your love, I pray that Allah would repay all your kindness.

It has not been easy but I will keep on fighting for the right thing, for the genuine happiness that we all deserved. It is a new beginning, Alhamdulillah.
