"I have listened to old songs, read lots, written and written and written, watched some amazing films, smiled while thinking of life and cried too, lit candles and then re lit some more every night," Mahira posted, sharing all that she's been doing to pass the hours.

"I missed my child more than ever before. I missed seeing those I love so much. And in my moments of pain and discomfort.. I could only thank the universe for the life I have lived and continue to live. Every little thing - all the tender mercies and blessings. Alhumdulillah," she added, looking back at all that life had to offer and truly grateful counting her blessings.
