I plan, you plan and then God puts out his plan

when at the beginning of my summer break i prayed that I'd have an amazing and memorable summer I didn't expect it to turn out the way it did.
I didn't expect my mom to get sick and go to the hospital
i didn't expect myself to be in charge of a household, cooking, laundry and the whole shebang
I didn't expect my dad to quit his job

but then i remember the ayah in the quran that goes

"But you may hate a thing although it is good for you, and love a thing although it is bad for you. God knows, but you do not know.” (2:215-216)

and then I'm like alhmdllah because at the end i came out with experiences even if it wasn't that much fun it was definitely a memorable summer and I'm closer to my parents more than before.
