Happy New Year (ABBA)
LOOKING BACK AT 2006

When I look back at the year 2006, my first thoughts are that it went by too soon.The children have grown older, passed many milestones , some of them I could not take part in because I was ill, but it still was a wonderful year. The good outweighed the bad. I am here alive and doing so much better than when the year started.

Even though the whole year was spent just staying home,it still was meaningful.I got to spend a lot of quality time with members of my family. The time otherwise would have been spent either doing household chores, shopping or wor
k, instead the time was spent just talking to them.The children got to know a lot more about the grand parents they had never seen, went down my memory lane and learned what it was like growing up as a child in India.And I think it brought J and me a lot closer too.

I missed both graduations but on the brighter side I was able to see the videos and got a better view than if I was physically present.I got to see a lot more family, who otherwise would not have made it to our home because we live so far from the
rest. (Thats one good reason to be ill), I missed a couple of weddings,Birthday and Anniversary celebrations.But sometimes the whole party came to me and I could not have asked for more.

The best thing that happenend was that I started to blog.I just registered in order to leave a comment and then could not help having my own blog.I would not have met so many wonderful people from all over the world. All of my blogger friends have stood by me through all my difficult times, seen me through my surgery and are helping me during my recovery phase.I have had nothing but positive feedback and I owe it all to you.It improved my writing skills,gave me courage to e
ven pen a few poems.Something I had not done before I started to blog.

January 2007 makes one year since I started to blog.I have learned so much from each one of you. I took back something positive from every post that I read. You have lifted my spirits when I was down, helped me be strong when I felt weary, made me want to try out new recipes when I am better, and most of all you made me smile.Thank you for being with me through 2006.I hope you will be with me through 2007.Thanks to all of you for being my friend.


WISHING YOU ALL A WONDERFUL NEW YEAR

Wishing you a great year ahead!

Despite all the ups and downs that life brings our way, life is still VERY beautiful; we just have to learn to cherish more and regret less as we grow older...hard to do, but definitely worth trying.

Hello Starry.
Happy New Year.

When god gives us rocks, it's our choice to build a wall or a Bridge. And i'm glad that you chose to build a Bridge.

Fresh Ink 11:52 PM  

Hi Starry... Definitely true. I started blogging as I found it to be an easy and fun way to get back to writing (which I had stopped doing for quite awhile). It was really pleasant when other bloggers started leaving comments and before I knew it, they've become regular readers of my blog as I am of theirs. So I share ur sentiments and I hope 2007 will bring alot of joy to all bloggers out there. Happy New Year, Starry!
