Exactly a year ago at this moment, I was buried beneath a pile of biscuits and cakes so high, that it threatened to suffocate me.
Today, I am, yet again, buried under just such a pile, but this time I have help. The staff at Lazeeza’s. And they’re all wonderful. Thank you guys (and girls)!
Who would have thought, as I struggled back then to shrug off the mountain and summit it, that I would come this far? It’s been a long, sometimes tortuous road. But it has also been extremely rewarding. Alhamdulillah. To all the customers of Lazeeza’s, thank you for your unwavering support. Yes, even those who fix me with a disdainful look on each of their visits. To the friends that I have made along the way, you have shown me the bounties of Allah in ways that I had previously been unable to imagine.
And to my Rabb, I am, truly, coming home.
