But this year it was one way special to her as her both friends from apartment and school came to celebrate the birthday. We had a wonderful time with these cute little kids. There were many gifts that kept on pouring, which kids look forward 😝 Party was lovely and fantastic.

Happy Birthday to my daughter / Happy Birthday Hiranmayi

There are times, I use to wonder about my life in this world and why does this exist? But today when I wished her Happy Birthday, just like that she turned towards me, gave a beautiful smile, hugged me and told, “Everything is going to be fine, I am there for you and we (she, my son, my hubby) are the reason why you are here, we love you and we need you – Be the way you are”. Really, I felt very happy deep from my heart and recognized not only it’s we who observe our kids, even they observe us.

Happy for such a beautiful, charming, understanding friend, a mother in my life as a daughter – Loads and loads of love to my princess ❤.

Happy for her and wish her all the success throughout her life with good health, peace and wealth.

Open Letter to My Grandfather – 2017

Standard

Miss the hands that holds me,

Miss the feet that walked with me,

Miss the hugs that boosts load of energy,

Miss the hands that feed me,

Miss the love that was very pure,

Miss the songs that you sing for me,

Miss the story that gives confidence to me

I DON’T MISS YOU BUT I MISS ME.

Open letter to my Grandfather

14 years of this journey is being very challenging, with so many changes in me, finally I miss me. At times, I feel happy for the way of thorns, sands, glass pieces that I have crossed, looking forward for the beautiful greenery and flowers on the way, but it looks like a water in the dessert or remains temporary. Finally got to know that “Life is a Battlefield” and glad that you taught me the survival. But this year with a heavy heart, there are many rumblings in my heart with the question, “Why all these happened again?”, hopefully looking forward for the answers and the time to heal everything and wish my garden bloom with beautiful flowers again. The only thing I wish this year was like giving a tight hug to you, lying on your shoulder, broke out my pains as tears, with a good sleep on your lap, so that all my pains, sorrow and worries vanishes in a second. I am sure it would never happen, because there is no one to replace you.

Happy for giving a beautiful, lovely, secured and happiest childhood which no one would had in their lifetime and still staying with me even when everyone say you are no more.
