Sayang, when others were enjoying their reward of success for their efforts, you were holding back your tears because you didn't made it through like others, and when you can't hold that tears behind you eyes anymore, you let the pearls down on your cheek, and I just saw again and again, that amazing wife of mine, with her upmost strength and courage.
Sayang, do you still remember the first time we look at the double line on the pregnancy kit and how I was jumping in disbelief and I keep checking on the kit every 2 seconds, afraid that it might dissapear?

Do you still remember sayang, when you were having severe abdominal pain which they thought due to fibroid when we were doing our Paeds rotation in Kerry and that was the first time we heard Amani's heart sound. I was stunned and I could feel my heart stop beating for that little seconds as it was a miracle to hear her heart beat for the first time. Subhanallah, the feeling was undescriable. She was so tiny, in fact she was as small as a lump at 6 weeks, but she was so adorable that abang kept her ultrasound photo in my paeds book and everytime I open the book, I just look at her first. Subhanallah, let us count on Allah's blessings upon us.
Do you still remember, how much difficulty we had to go through in coping with the new situation when we were doing our first Paeds rotation in Kerry. We were thinking is this happening too fast? But never for one second I ever regret it. We were quite disorganize at that time, but still we managed to attend all of the hospital rotation regardless the complaints we had concerning false concerns over our poor attendence. We even recieved emails on advice to defer from exam, and Abang was getting email reminding not to let the situation affecting my study and my attendance to hospital.

Do you still remember that one day I let you catch the bus alone and you almost slipped of the pathway and nearly fall to the road with a coming bus on the other direction?
