My Dadajee Is 69 Years Young!

dadajee's 69th birthday

This is one of my favourite photos of Dadajee, because I think that there’s some resemblance between me and him here – though I could never match his handsomeness…

Dadajee is one of my role models. I look up to him as the best person to ask for consolation when I’m feeling down. We practically share everything! Even though we live halfway across the world from each other, there’s nothing that we don’t know about each other! He’s also someone to ask for advice when in doubt. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone as wise as him! He’s also really kind, loving, and funny. I would love to have all his qualities – in other words, I absolutely adore my Dadajee!

I find him very inspiring because of the fact that not only is he multi-talented and wise, but he is also very humble and down-to-earth, which makes him even more lovable! I don’t think our family would be complete without him, and we’re really lucky to have him!

In short, Dadajee is one of the people that I love most! Happy 69th Birthday, Dadajee! Hope your birthday is filled with lots of joy and warmth! We all love you so much, and we really miss you! On this special day, I pray to God that He gives you a long blessed life and grant you your heart’s desires. May He rid you of all troubles and make you the happiest man in this world and the next! May He give you peace and abundance! But there’s only one thing I ask of you: never stop being you, because you are the GREATEST GRANDPA EVER!

Your first grandson,
Omar Mukhtar
On behalf of all the family

Happy Birthday Dadijee!

dadijee birthday

It was Dadijee’s birthday on Friday 8th June 2018, and it was a very special day indeed! Dadijee is an amazing grandma to all three of us – me, Fatimah and Ali – and a brilliant mother to Mrs Mom! She’s an ideal role model: she’s kind, considerate, and loving! She’s always there to help us and support us in bad times. She is willing to spare her time to listen to us, and she will always have some handy words of wisdom to share! And of course, her cooking is PAWSOME! But most of all, she’s loving! She’ll always be there to comfort us, as a grandma, mother and friend!

So today, I wish Dadijee a very Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday Dadijee! May God bestow all the greatest of blessings upon you! And what could be better than celebrating her birthday than when we’re all here together? Yes, that’s right, Dadijee and all the family just arrived on Thursday, right on time for her birthday! It’s so nice to have the family together for this special occasion! And as my gift as a grandson to a grandma, a special poem specially for one of the amazing people in my life!

A Brilliant Grandma

A Poem By Omar Mukhtar, The Pawsome Lion

She is a brilliant grandma,

With special qualities,

She’s kind, unique and sweet,

And puts up with my frivolities!

She is a brilliant grandma,

A brilliant cook too,

And so much food upon the plates,

It’s more than I can chew!

She is a brilliant grandma,

And on her birthday,

A thank you

Is the least I could do

For all she’s done for me

But I think I’ll start with that

Thank You and Happy Birthday!

p/s: Dear God,

Please shower my grandma with the greatest of blessings and reserve her the best place in Heaven – she really deserves it!

Love,

Omar Mukhtar a.k.a. The Pawsome Lion

Dear Dadajee,

It’s 7th of January 2018, your 68th birthday! You’re the best grandfather anybody could ask for, so on your special day, I pray to God that He will reward you for all the good deeds you have done! May God grant you a long life, filled with good health and all the happiness in the world. May He make all your wishes come true and shower you with His eternal blessings. And most important of all, may He reserve you the best place in Heaven and enable you to be the richest man in Paradise! I really wish I could be there with you on such an occasion – I miss you a lot! Hopefully, we can all be together again soon!

Thank you for always being that person who stood by my side no matter what! You were continuously helping me, advising me and guiding me in life. You made many sacrifices, like when you volunteered to stay behind when everybody went on an outing, just to help time my tests when I was studying for the 11+. You stayed with me from morning till evening, making sure I prayed and ate on time too! Not only that, you made sure I had enough sleep and rest, so I didn’t overwork myself. But most of all, I want to say thank you for making us all smile, laugh and stay cheerful! Your jokes, warm hugs, and even your smile could light up the whole world!

Thank you for everything, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Your loving grandson,

Omar Mukhtar
