    What a beatiful reminder . It happens a lot in my household too and it reminds me of this -When the milk is splattered all over the floor and those little eyes are looking at you for your reaction, remember what really matters. It takes 5 minutes to clean up spilled milk; it takes much longer to clean up a broken spirit. – Rebecca Eanes. xxx

    Jazak Allah Khayr for the reminder however I would caution you against exposing your sins. Jazak Allah Khayr

    Subhanallah what a beautiful reminder. I happened to see few Christian bloggers doing this as a live lesson few months back and when I wanted to do them as a life lesson to my daughter but felt it’s too early and stopped by when she was just 2 year old. This blogpost is a perfect reminder for us

    What a heartfelt thought-provoking reminder of how one must control their anger. Great of you to apologize and talk to your children about it

    A good reminder…I think most mums have probably lost their temper and then felt guilty. But we must remember that although inconvenient it can be cleaned up.


    This is definitely a reminder for me. I soo relate as a similar incident happened in my household 3 days ago. The prophet’s advice on what to do when one gets angry is something I need to revisit again in my life. I use to practice and not too many things happening at the same time that i can’t seem to think about what to do when they do happen. Thank you for sharing this sister.
