Returning to Qom after summer always leaves a bittersweet taste in my mouth.
I hate saying ‘goodbye’ to family and friends and my home, but there’s an urge to return home quickly and get back to my routine.
Now the countdown to the new school year begins. Since I started part-time classes, there’s a certain excitement of getting back to the classroom.
I’m also looking forward to incorporating new things into my kids’ routines that we will do as a family. The goal, inshallah, is to keep us active, learning, and growing closer to Allah.
Here’s to learning new things, watching my kids grow and soaking in more of that Qomlife.
