Today is Ummu's 15th birthday. I was surprised to find out early in the morning a letter and a present near my praying mat when I entered my prayer room for fajr prayer. Both were from Ummu.

Ummu's birthday and I receive the gifts from her? It should have been the reverse usually.

The gifts were a touching letter and a photograph frame containing 3 photographs featuring Ummu and me during various occasions along the year. Her letter led me to realise that Ummu is already a matured youngest daughter with all wisdom, some of which were accumulated when she accompanied me abroad, from Indonesia and Thailand to Saudi Arabia and United Kingdom.

I purposely posted her letter below as an important memory in my life.
