What's saddest...?

What's saddest about having an expat dad?
He leaves for Hajj (pilgrimage) and you can't even hug him goodbye.

He's having a birthday on this coming 3rd of December, and you can't throw a simple party for him.

You miss those dad-daughter times you spent together, and wish it were that time of year again.

Ah well, I'm getting too bluesy.
Anyways, to all those who are on pilgrimage:
Hope you have a makbool (accepted by God) and mabroor (blessed) pilgrimage.
Have a safe journey!

The saddest is when you are jealous of other girls who's fathers love them more than yours ever did.
