Summer in the UAE went by in a flash of heat and dust. Ramadan came swiftly and when I next looked it had whizzed passed all too quickly. Next came Eid and now that too has come and gone for another year.
The unifying factors have been family and friends. Summer meant a chance to see beloved and much missed friends. A Ramadan blessing this year was to share Iftar with a Muslim colleague who is new to the Middle East. And Eid was the cherry on top as I went home to be with my family.
The lesson in all of this is that despite a busy life here in Abu Dhabi, it is important to remember to put those we love at the centre of it all.... faith, family and friends.
