Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah for little opportunities, for the opportunity to say something positive, for the opportunity to make some people happy, for the opportunity to love and be loved.
And yes, every little thing counts. That is if we care to count them no matter how small or insignificant they may seem in the big scheme of things. We strive to be shakirin - people who are grateful, don't we?
- After all the work is done (well for now), we rejoice in having free time, we can take 5, before the time comes when we become busy, busy, busy.
- We rejoice in being relatively young and useful for the people around us before the time comes when we are overcome by old age and are not in a position to contribute much.
- financially-able and
- alive. Yes, alive! Alhamdulillah.
These 5 things (the fiver/5er) as we all know, are mentioned in a hadith. So, remember the fiver.
Oh, on another note, another good habit am trying to pick up this year - becoming a fiver collector - as in the five dollar notes. Yes, every little thing counts.
