"You Gave Me Life!"

The last couple of days brought us more challenges to face and deal with. The first concerns my health, the other is some turmoil in my branch in Lebanon that we had been asked to resolve. I've been thinking about the trend in my life lately... It's so rich and busy, if you want to call it that! And I've been thinking about Sol and how his life turned 180 degrees from before he met me... and my baggage.

We were having our evening talk yesterday, and I was sharing with him what I felt. I told him that I don't know what to say, could I say I'm sorry for my ailment, I'm sorry for having kids from a previous marriage? Of course not! How could I be sorry for something out of my control, and how could I be sorry for having Anas and Juju. But still, I feel bad and I feel guilt that I brought all this onto him. And I said, "Look what I brought you. I'm sick, you have to take care of me, the kids, and everything. And you have to deal with the problems arising from my past." He answered me, "You brought me life!"

I love you, Suliman Ahmed Dregia... You gave me life!


  1. He is right Hannu, you give life to the people involved in your life.

  2. Aha! Now I understand the spring in your step this morning. I love you, too, Hannu, and I meant what I said.

  3. I cried when I read your post my dear Hannu-but they were tears of joy as you are both lucky to have found each other.
    Sulaiman,You have a gem of a wife and Hannu ,you have a treasure of a husband.

    "The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more; that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds" ....
    from the movie,"The Notebook"

    May Allah Bless you both always...
