Ramadan is over, and we are celebrating Eid. The end of Ramadan is always bittersweet for me. I feel good about having had one more year with this wonderful month in it, but I also wonder if I did justice to it. Could I have spent it in a better way? The answer to that is invariably yes, but it comes with the hope that next year I'll have one more opportunity to live it, Inshallah. Meanwhile, it's important to hold on to the values of patience and generosity for the rest of the year and build on them.
So today is Eid, and we will meet a whole bunch of friends this evening - should be fun! I'm also hoping I'll overcome my shyness about my shop and hand out some business cards already. *shaking my head in disgust here*
