Assalaamalaikum and/or hey.
Thank you to everyone for the patience between blog posts. The last few weeks have been a tornado of emotion in my household. My father had been suffering through a battle with stage IV lung cancer, which had launched a heavier attack on him at the start of January. He succumbed to the enemy within his body just after midnight this past Saturday.
Naima and I have been best friends for literally our entire lives and among the many things we've shared has been this experience with losing our fathers to the same illness much too early in our lives. Naima's father similarly succumbed to his illness just a few years ago.
Please make duas (say prayers) for both her father and mine.
We will begin posting again soon, insha'Allah, and look forward to hearing from you on the blog, on similar experiences in your lives, and so many other things. Please leave us messages on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/gotoGreaterLengths) or email us (gotoGreaterLengths@gmail.com).
Thank you for your patience.
