A couple of months ago H's doll stroller seat ripped. Since then she has been asking for another stroller. So I decided to Redo the stroller seat instead of buying another. It literally cost $0 since I had all the supplies at home.
The reason why I wanted to share this was H's reaction to it. Mashaa-Allah she was so happy to have her stroller seat back. What made the whole thing more wonderful was the smile of feeling special she had on her face when I said to her "I made this for you". (this happens for everytime I make or do something for any one of them. And Yes! This goes for hubby too)
There is just something about "making/ doing" things, clothes, food, duas, lessons, toys and much much more for your family. The feelings you get and give are so powerful that it makes you want to do it again and again. To blossom the whole experience up even more it helps me by purifying my intentions only for Allah SWT. I feel this gets me up and going / doing even on those days when I am feeling down.
