A Simple Thing Today

By Mohammad Omar Farooq (link here)

In life so many things to do
And, yes, so many things to say,
I know I can and I really wish
That I also do a simple thing today.

Let me help quench thirst of someone -
Be it a friend, a stranger, or even a dog,
Let me help carry someone
his burden: a box, a load or log.

Let me bring comfort to someone
Or be a helping hand, perchance,
From the road, if I come across,
Let me remove a thorny branch.

Let me speak a hopeful word
Or help someone find his way,
All the things that I do in a day,
O my Lord, let me do a simple thing today.

"Terkadang Allah memberikan nikmat-NYA berupa dugaan meskipun berat terasa, dan terkadang juga Allah menguji sebahagian yang lain dengan memberikan nikmat-NYA"

Cheqna, Its the simple things and happening in life that made living colorful. If only one take a pause and look or listen to those simple happening in our midst life would surely be rewarding. I did and enjoying every moments of it.

Have a nice day.

Rad, all the things that we do. :-)

Cheqna said...

Ayoh Wang,

I've read the story before but ingat2 lupa..may be you can write about it?

Most times after reading it I'd try to practice...but sadly it doesn't stick, that's why I need constant reminder.

Cheqna said...


tq sis, glad to share it here :-)

Cheqna said...

Pak Idrus,

Firstly, thank you for dropping by (but I know you had done before).

Secondly, yes I really need to slow down a bit, take a slower pace and smell the roses..

This afternoon, I realised that I was always in the rush going from one place to another,not taking note of the tried to slow down..but when I felt funny, picked up the pace again..hehe..

Thank you, may you have a nice day too.

I love the last quote - The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.- I agree, very true.

Nana said...

Ah...thank you dear for the reminder!
I don't know whether I am the happiest, but I sleep like a baby at night and I try to simplify things. Hehehe...hopefully I am on the right track. :)

Cheqna said...


yes, it should be that way, don't worry too much, be happy.


Cheqna said...


Glad you like it..same when I first read it..hehe


Cheqna said...


You're welcome dear, I guess that's one sign that you don't "clutter" your mind too much, clear conscience eh...that's surely good.

Stay happy with your family, and welcome back online..we miss you.
