My darling, My Sunshine!

          This is an open letter addressed to my daughter on her 3rd birthday. She is so small to understand what I want to let her know so I'm writing for her which she can read when she grows up.

Dearest Swara,
          Hello my darling. It's your birthday today. I can't believe three years ago, you entered my world and made me a mommy. The term which is given a godly status - I am experiencing it to the fullest. 'Children are most dependent on mothers' is an apt saying. But here, I wish to tell you that even I'm dependent on you. Do you want to know how?
  • I'm dependent on you to witness all those magical milestones which you have achieved till now and will continue to achieve.
  • I'm dependent on you for laughter which is so contagious that one giggle from you when I'm in a foul mood melts my heart away.
  • I'm dependent on you to enjoy childhood again with you. It gives me immense joy when I'm spending time with you - through reading, laughing, having silly conversations, watching movies etc. Of course, there are hair-raising moments or moments when I just don't want you to be near me. But, again, remember that this is because I may not want to hurt you or pour someone's anger on you.
  • I'm dependent on you for that ray of sunshine which you have brought in my life.

Thank you for filling my life with joy and teaching me that happiness can be found in the most mundane of things.
Have a very happy birthday and looking forward to many many more with you!
God bless you my angel!

Happy 1st birthday!

          Time just flies!....    And now, it's time to rejoice!.......   

          Cause I complete one whole year of blogging here. Yes, I'm experiencing that feeling. How it feels that I have been blogging for the last one year! OK, so what if I have been a bit irregular in it. But still, looking back, it seems that I managed to achieve so much and sail through it.

          Now for the part where I couldn't be regular. Given my just-born professional venture, Reading Rabbits Library, parenting, family, etc., blogging took a backseat! Let me rectify myself here - this blog took a backseat, since I already have a blog dedicated to my venture and I post there often.

          When I started my blog, I was so raw, inexperienced, confused about what to write. I learnt so many things about blogging and continue to learn everyday. I made so many new friendships with awesome bloggers and asked their opinions and sought answers to my queries. I follow so many blogs and am amazed to read their wonderful posts secretly wishing why I couldn't think of that to write or when will I be able to write so well!

          For now, I'm being content and hope to improve myself in the coming year in terms of quality, quantity and my blog design.

          And now, folks, it's time to cut the cake. See you soon!
