Yesterday morning I walked out of the house to go print some papers at 9 in the morning after sleeping for about 4 hours that night. Ahead of me was a day so full and so stressful, I dragged myself out of bed, I forced myself to dress up and walk out of the house. I really didn't know how this day would pass, but the thought that it eventually will is the only thing that kept me going.
On the way to the print shop, I passed by a girl who looked at me, smiled and said good morning!
This girl does not know how she got me through yesterday, she's a total stranger that passed by my life for less than a second but will never be forgotten. She gave me strength through the whole morning.
Later, a bit before sunset, on the bus my sister and I sat in front of an old man, 'good day' he said and asked how we were, smiled to us and left at the next stop.
As we left the bus and were walking on the sidewalk a man walking across our path stopped, smiled and gestured his hand for us to pass.
Then we went to a restaurant to pick up food for iftar, the chef welcomed us dearly and asked how we were and joked around.
We took our food and went to the river to eat, besides us were a family trying to take a group photo, so we walked up to them and offered to take their photo so they'd all be in it. Turns out they are Syrian and they kept thanking us and wishing us a good night.
Those are just some of the people we met yesterday.
My sister and I, fascinated by this series of events, decided it is something in the air making people nice, cause people were much nicer than usual. Everyone we met yesterday treated us well, literally everyone, and we met a lot of people. Through my whole time in Germany, not one stranger said hello, and to have all of those in one day was mind-blowing that we started laughing every time we come across just another nice human being.
And then thinking about it deeper, those three days has been the most stressful days of my whole life, and maybe God is trying to ease things up for me. Because all those happening in one day, when I needed them most, could not have been a coincidence.
All I'm saying is when you pray for God to get you through hardship he will. You just have to have faith. Not talking to someone close, nor getting nervous, or crying would get you through.
And I honestly don't know if you have God what else you could need.
Al-HamduliAllah for everything.
Until next time
