Went to Ali's daughter's wedding this morning where we saw a number of our Hajj companions from last year. To our delight Raihan & Khadijah and Hussein & Alena were able to make it to tea at our place in the afternoon. Hussein brought along his videos of our pilgrimage and we had a great time reliving the experience.
At one point we all of us fell to pondering our extraordinary good fortune in being able to do the Hajj when we did. It just couldn't have taken place at a better time for myself and Noi, or with better companions. Incredible luck, extraordinary grace.
