ramadan day 13

I'm finding that the hunger from fasting doesnt bother me as much.  The thing I struggle with is the lack of sleep from getting up early to make suhoor.  I find myself trying to catch a nap whenever I can.  Today it was lunch then again after work.

I went to iftar at the masjid tonight.  I was early so I went in, and read some quran.  I had already finished my juz for the day, so I started into tomorrow's.  Everyone gathered and broke fast with some water and fruit.  Then, we did maghrib.  Then it was time to eat.  There wasnt enough chairs, but eventually i found one and sat by myself.  The food was quite good.  I didnt know anyone and didnt meet anyone there so I felt lonely being there.  I didnt stay for isha and left after eating.  I enjoyed the meal but definitely would have enjoyed it a lot more if I had a friend to share it with.

Peace and blessings to all

  1. There's a song by Martina McBride called, "Anyway." It's about how sometimes life isn't easy but you do things anyway. For different reasons I have had to do this myself...move on and do things, often alone, inspite of how difficult it is. In that way I can relate to you. I hope you realize just how strong of a person you are.
