Sunni Sister - You Don't Know What You've Got Till It's Gone...!
Sunni Sister posted an entry entitled "Speak Up".
"There used to be this really horrific heavy metal ballad in the 80’s called “Don’t Know What You’ve Got (Till It’s Gone)” by a hair band named after a fairy tale princess. Well, I dunno about the clothes or the hair or anything else, but on the sentiment, they’ve got it right."
I never knew who sang it, or what they looked like (alhamdulillah!)...but like Umm Zaid, I do think the message is right on.
We don't appreciate our youth, until we're growing old. We don't appreciate out parents until it's almost time to leave their warm, comforting arms. We don't appreciate our health until we lose it. We don't appreciate friends, until we're shown what life is like in their absence.
Thank Allah for every breath He gives you and the uncountable blessings in your life.
Alhamdulillah 'ala kulli haal.
