Playing hopscotch outside with the neighbors

Sidewalk chalking the driveway

Running through the sprinkler

Eating popsicles on the porch with family

Beading friendship bracelets

Life used to be so simple and easy when responsibilities didn't lie on our shoulders. When the world felt like one huge playground ready to be painted with realities of our imagination. Those are the days I miss when I think about work, bills, and responsibilities that keep getting added to my shoulders.

لَا         يُكَلِّفُ      اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا         وُسْعَهَا
Allah [God] does not burden a soul except [with that within] its capacity. 
[Qur'aan 2:286]

I wrote a post about this exact thing once. However, as you said 'Allah' never gives us more than we can take.

That ayah has to be one of my favourite. It gives me so much strength when I'm going through difficult times - it reminds me I'm going to be ok because if I couldn't handle it I wouldn't be going through it :)
