To be honest I am quite proud of my research skills and ability to find things out.
Especially so on this occasion when it yielded such positive results.
Allaah had brought him into my path on multiple occasions before, so if it was meant to be (which I of course was praying that it was) then He’d bring him back my way again when the time was right.
Maybe in a few months or even a year’s time, but for now I’d have to focus on packing my bags and jetting off on my new adventure.
For the many of us who have been brought up being taught about the strict rules of “no free mixing” and certainly no boyfriends and girlfriends allowed, relationships are very black and white: There isn’t much allowance for anything else.
My slightly control freak tendencies mean I like to err on the side of caution, always looking out for ‘signs’ in my life; to give me comfort of what’s meant to be, to give me protection from falling into another disappointment.
But here, I felt like there were enough signs to allow me to dream a little – so many commonalities in our life (growing up in nearby areas, even attending the same uni at one point), we knew mutual people and then there was the timing of it all..
Ok, so that’s probably a bit of an exaggeration but I’m sure there are sisters out there who get my point that this was something to be excited about.
(If not and I’m just crazy, please do let me know..!
