Birthday 09

Nani had asked me sometime back, what I wanted for my b'day gift.... I said, a nice recipe book. After 3-4 days, when I came back from work, I saw a parcel on my bed with nani's handwriting on it. I was super excited about opening it :-)

It was a really nice looking recipe book called 'The Weekend Baker' by 'Abigail Johnson Dodge'.

Turning the pages had me hooked to it. Daksyani was jumping up and down next to me. We pored over it together. We loved it. While I was thanking nani and nana n the phone, mom was poring over it.

By the time, I hung up the phone, mom had already thumbed thru it and said.... "I want to eat this.... let's try it out."

Now that's enthusiasm..... :-)

You're The Inspiration - Chicago

While driving to work, was listening to matchless music hour..... nice songs were playing..... Most of my attention was on the traffic cause it gets very dense on the last lap, suddenly the words " And I want you here with me, from tonight until the end of time" caught my attention then the chorus had me hooked......

"You're the meaning in my life
You're the inspiration
You bring feeling to my life
You're the inspiration
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin'
No one needs you more than I need you"

I was surprised at myself..... I wasn't thinking of who I had thought I will...... This happens at just the time when i feel most weak....... It's gone...... I feel so relieved......
The albatross has flown...

I was thinking of someone, who I had wanted I should think about..... Yeah...... Thank God..... really thank him for helping me thru this.......

"Now I know that I need you here with me
From tonight until the end of time "

This time... I know you will be there for me..... Always.... and this time, I know if it will ever end... it will be the stupid me who walks out of protection...
