So today when I was driving, I put down my window as the weather was just so beautiful MashaAllah. Air feels clean and the cool wind blowing quite strongly.
Mama, why you put down your window?, asked Tariq
The weather is great, Tariq. Just like in Perth. Feel it, I answered him
Yes Mama. So nice! said Tariq
Then he continued... Mama, when is long holiday? Tariq want to go to Perth and Finland again..
Well, it is still long time before holiday, Tariq. You must go to school many many months before holiday, I answered him
Tariq loves to go to school..., he confessed while smiling. Sejuk perut Mama.. Alhamdulillah..
That's great Tariq, (and here comes my advice)... You know sayang, as Muslims, our today must always be better than our yesterday... So how to be better today than yesterday?....Well, It can be anything... like going to school today will help Tariq learn new knowledge, so you are better today than yesterday... When you practice your swimming, your strokes will be better today than yesterday... When you read, your brain will know more stories today than yesterday.. When you are kind and help people and animals today, Allah will love you more today than yesterday... When you try new things, your today is better than yesterday..... We just need to try to do at least one thing better today than yesterday...... , Do you understand my darling, I asked him
Yes Mama, everyday we must do one thing better than yesterday, answered Tariq
And right then, we reached his school, Alhamdulillah
