Eid Mubarak! Ramadan 2011 has ended, but the spirit of discipline, charity, and sacrifice continues. This year my family undertook what turned out to be a beautiful, worthwhile project centered around gratitude. Throughout the month, each family member identified 114 things, people, and ideas for which they are thankful to Almighty God. We chose 114 to correlate with the numbers of surahs in the Holy Quran. Towards the end, it was fun to see the children go to the "sun" and check to see if what they thought of was already written. This project forced to use to examine the little things that make our life joyful like water, paper, and bricks! I plan on framing this really soon and displaying it in our home.
