Farewell 2009

One more year is over. I am wiser by 365 days more. The year 2009 has been the worst ever in my life, though I would love to say that it had its own silver lining in more than one ways.

On the last day of the year, I am recalling all the good and bad that had happened in the last year. My mother’s sickness (August) was one of the lowest points of the year 09. Then I broke my toe (September) and lost my one and only aunty (Meera Mahi). Apart from that the year had seen me getting fevers/flue/infections time and again. Oh what a relief it’s over now.

On a positive note, I have grown wiser, understood the importance of family and realized where to put my foot down and say NO and actually mean it. In the departing year I have also understood who my real friends are and who are not. I will treasure the former all my life.

Someone has rightfully said that we do need the bad things in life too to understand the value of the good ones. Time heals everything. Remembering the quote an uncle had on his visiting card, “Arey mann shant rah, ye bhi guzar jayega”. Yes it did. I thank God for everything.

Aren't we glad to have each other GIRLS!

When I was a little girl,
I used to believe in the concept of one best friend.
Then I started to become a woman,

And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up,

God would show you the best in many friends.

One friend is needed when you're going through things with your spouse…..
Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom and dad...

Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children and their activities.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
One friend will say, 'Let's have a meal together,
'Another , 'Let's party together,'..
Another , 'Let's walk away together.'

One friend will meet your spiritual need,
Another your shoe fetish,..

Another your love for clothes,

Another will be with you in your season of confusion,..

Another will be your clarifier,
Another the wind beneath your wings…

But whatever their assignment in your life,
On whatever the occasion,
On whatever the day,
Or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back,
Or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself .
Those are your best friends.

It may all be wrapped up in one woman, But for many, it's wrapped up in several...
One from 7th grade,
One from high school,
Several from the college years,

A couple from old jobs,
On some days your mother,
On some days your neighbor,
On others, your sisters,
And on some days, your daughters.

Happy to have all my gal pals. Love you all.
