You know you've put on weight when...

...your neighbhour who sees you almost everyday, suddenly asks,
" You have some good news to share with me"?

Of Mice and Little Boys

A few days back, I had taught junjun how to draw a cat easily and he was quite thrilled.

This morning, i asked him if he would like to learn to draw a mouse.

He said 'no, amma. I already know' and drew a perfect mouse for me.

Except, it was the kind that is attached to a computer!!

Love is...

...doing little things that actually make life easier for the other person :)

I hope everybody has that one person in their life who has always been there for them.

Who has known you from before you were born.

Who has been a part of your growing up years, always making you feel so very special and loved unconditionally.

Who opened doors to new worlds.

Who saw in you things you would never have dreamed were possible.

Who actually put his money where his mouth is.

Who never judged. Who was always there...time and again.

Who was kind, funny, creative, immensely talented.

Who was always on your side.

Whose whole family enveloped you with their love.

Who never missed a birthday

Who chose to live life on his terms

Who did not let cancer stop him from continuing with life...that too with renewed vigour and zest

i hope with all my heart, that he knew how much he meant to me.

I hope, all of you are lucky enough to have had a Mithran Devanesen in your life

Love you Mithran Uncle, will miss you more than you can imagine.
