In Memory Of !!




Two years have gone by
Since you left us to be with our Heavenly Father,

Two years since you walked this earth,
two years since we saw your smile and laughter,
two years since we saw your twinkling eyes,

Never for once have I seen you angry,
or utter a nasty word in anger,

I guess these were the qualities in you,
that made God want you to be with Him.

He loved you so much,
He took you away from us to be with Him,
at a very young age.

I never saw you in your deathbed,
know why?
I never wanted to erase the memories
of the few days I spent with you
just a few weeks before you died.

I still remember sitting next to you,
and aunty saying, "Look, how he is taking special care of his sister."
Those words still ring in my ears...I smiled never knowing then
that I was going to lose you soon.

Even in your final moments,
I heard that you were happy,
Never questioned God as to
why all this happened to you.
Never angry.

No wonder God really loved you, brother.

My only regret, I never for once
told you how much I loved you.
Even though in my heart
you always held a special place.

You are very special even to this day, my brother.

You are remembered every single day in my life.

I know you are in Heaven
With our Lord,
Happy and smiling as always,
looking down on us
blessing us, taking care of us.

Your last words,"All my very best. Goodbye to you all."

I believe you can hear me too,
So let me tell you now,
I love you, my brother.
We all love you.

Who Am I?



Friends called me Innocent.
Some said you are so child-like.
Some said I was being a fool.
I don't know if any of this is true.

They said these things cause
I didn't know how to back stab,
I didn't know how to cheat,
I didn't lie to anyone,
I never want to hurt anyone.

Do these things make me
what they call me?

But,
I knew how to bring a smile
on a friend's face...sometimes even a stranger.
I knew how to help out a friend in need,
I truly cared for people..

What does this make me?

Whatever they call me, I am still human
and would love to remain such...
Even if it means to get hurt
Cause this life is given by God.
He showed us Love.
We need to show God's Love to others.

When the time for me to go comes,
I want to be remembered for being a good person.
The person God intended me to be...

Imaginary Friend !!!


I've never seen your face,
I've never heard your voice,
I've never felt your warmth,
But every time I think of you,

It brings a smile on my face,
May be this is what is love,
I don't know!!!

Every time I hear your name
being called...
A beat skips in my heart !!!
They tell me this is love,
But I still don't know!!!

You know why?
Cause you are an
Imaginary friend !!!

A friend I have always dreamt of once.
One thing is for sure,
When I meet you, I will know
the very first instance
that it is YOU!!
I've been thinking of all along!!!

Lover's Dream !!


Sitting here by the beach alone,
thinking of you,
A soft breeze blows,
I feel love in the air,

I remember the times
we spent together,
laughing, crying,
fighting and in each others arms,
but in the end of it all,
It was in Love...

I still keep you in my dreams
Cause they say
Dreams come true..
wishing one day
you will be a reality...
Still Waiting....

For a Very Special Friend !!!

 
I remember a picture
like I saw it yesterday
It kind of appeared strange back then
but it is meaningful now

From the very first day
we talked,
I knew you were different

There were days we
spent talking all day long
laughing, having fun...
I miss them...

I shared everything with you,
No one else in my life
knows all about my feelings
like you do...

I shared
my happiness,
my joy,
my sadness,
my tears...everything.
You listened and always had a kind word for me.

You were always there for me...every single time
No matter what time of the day/night it was...

Just wanted to take time to say
Stay just the way you are...

You are special and you are loved !!!

Facebook - Social Networking !!!!


FACEBOOK - The Social Networking Site

A few known friends
from school and college
getting in touch
after being years apart
giving you a sense of belonging

Some get to meet each other
and relive the golden period
of their childhood...
days of being carefree
giggling and laughing
at bygone days
memories so precious
and beautiful
always remaining in our hearts ~ Forever.


Lots of unknown faces
Longing to become friends
from across the world

I get the feeling
there are a lot of lonely people
out in this huge world of ours..

To me, Facebook is like
having pen pals
where we used to make friends
exchange letters

 From an unknown person
to a person close to the heart
without seeing their face
or hearing their voice...

The Only Difference
Pen pals are made through letters
Facebook friends are made through the internet..

The only qualities we need to have are
Trustworthy,
Truthfulness
and Honesty
Not too hard to ask from a person..!!!!

Make a New Friend !!
You would probably make a difference in their lives !!

Peace and Love !!!

Prayer


What is prayer ?

It is the connection you make
with your creator...

It is believing and trusting
the unseen...

It is a personal relationship
with the one and only Almighty...

It is a silent conversation 
you have from your heart...

kind of like a heart-to-heart
talk with the silent listener...

He may not be seen
but sometimes
when you are at peace with Him,
you can hear Him
whisper into your ears...
and when he does
it will be the sweetest
voice you have ever heard...

 And one thing is for sure
Prayers never go unanswered...


So, keep your prayers going up
and see your blessings flowing down...

A Letter to a Friend.....with Love !!!


To
    A friend,
    Where ever you live,

From
    A friend
    Where I live,

Dear Friend,

    Hello, my friend. We met over the internet and it was by chance. You extended your hands in friendship. It was my decision to accept it. Over a period of time, I reserved a place for you in my heart as you became a good friend. It was my choice. Now I make a promise to keep you in my heart till my last breath.....forever.

    There is just one thing I need to know. I don't know where you live in this huge wide world, and I don't care either. All I want to know is can you reserve a place for me in your heart too, a very small place where I can live in...to be your friend.

    Let me know when you reserve a place in your heart.

Love Forever,
Friend.

Beautiful Friendship



Do people really know what friendship is? 

A friend is one
who can make you laugh
when you don't even want to smile...
who knows when to be silent 
and just listen to you...
who is there for you 
just when you need them the most.

A friend is one
who will walk 
hand in hand with you
through the ups and downs 
of your life
You have the best 
moments of your life
with your friends

True friends are rare
But they are out there
You just need to find your 
true friend
and hold on to them.

But to find a true friend,
you need to be one 
yourself.


Never take friendship or friends for granted...
cause when you do, you lose them for life...


Keep your friends in your heart
and 
see friendship grow in your life

THE WOMAN


When God created woman , He was working late on the 6th day.
An angel came by and said: “why spend too much time on that one?”And the lord answered:
“Have you seen all the specifications i have to meet to shape her?”
... “She must be washable, but not made of plastic, have more than 200 moving parts which all must be replaceable and she must function on all kinds of food, she must be able to embrace several kids at the same time, give a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart and she must do all this with only two hands.”
The angel was impressed.
“Just two hands… impossible!”
And this is the standard model?!
“Too much work for one day… wait until tomorrow and then complete her.”
“I’ll not”, said the Lord. “I am so close to complete this creation which will be the favorite of my heart.”
“She cures herself when sick and she can work 18 hours a day.”
“The angel came nearer and touched the woman.
“But you have made her so soft, Lord”
“She is soft”, said the Lord, “But i have also made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.
“Can she think?” The angel asked.
The Lord answered:
“Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.”
The angel touched the woman’s check…
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her.”
“She is not leaking… It’s a tear” the Lord corrected the angel.
“What’s it for?” asked the angel.
And the Lord said:
“Tears are her way of expressing grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”
This made a big impression on the angel;
“Lord you are genius.
You thought of everything. The woman is indeed marvelous!”
Indeed she is!
Woman has strengths that amaze man.
She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when feeling like screaming, she sings when feeling like crying, cries when she is happy and Laughs when she is afraid.
She fights for what she believes in.
Stands up against injustice.
She doesn’t take “no” for an answer, when she can see a better solution.
She gives herself so her family can thrive.
She takes her friend to the doctor if she is afraid.
Her love is unconditional.
She cries when her kids are victorious.
She is happy when her friends do well.
She is glad when she hears of a birth or a wedding.
Her heart is broken when a next of kin or friend dies.
But she finds the strength to get on with life.
She knows that a kiss and a hug can heal a broken heart.
There is only one thing wrong with her:
“SHE FORGETS WHAT SHE IS WORTH…”

The Wooden Bowl

 
 
 
The Wooden Bowl

I guarantee you will remember the tale of the Wooden Bowl tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, a year from now.

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year-old grandson.
The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered

The family ate together at the table. But the elderly grandfather's shaky hands and
Failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor.
When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.

The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess.
'We must do something about father,' said the son.
'I've had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.'

So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner.
There, Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner.
Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl.

When the family glanced in Grandfather's direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone.
Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.

The four-year-old watched it all in silence.

One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor.
He asked the child sweetly, 'What are you making?' Just as sweetly, the boy responded,
'Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food in when I grow up.
' The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.

The words so struck the parents so that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done.

That evening the husband took Grandfather's hand and gently led him back to the family table.
For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason,
Neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled.

On a positive note, I've learned that, no matter what happens, how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles four things:
A rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a 'life..'

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands.You need to be able to throw something back sometimes.

I've learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you
But, if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others,
Your work and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

I've learned that every day, you should reach out and touch someone.

People love that human touch -- holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

Team Work!!




There was a farmer who grew superior quality and award-winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honor and prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learnt something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors'.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" the reporter asked.

"Why sir, "said the farmer, "didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbor’s corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions!  
Those who choose to be at harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace... Those who choose to live well must help others to live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches.

SUCCESS DOES NOT HAPPEN IN ISOLATION. IT IS VERY OFTEN A PARTICIPATIVE AND COLLECTIVE PROCESS.

So share the good practices, ideas, new learning's with your family, team members, neighbors. All the Successes are a Team Work of a family, group, enterprise, corporation...  

 



TEAM as an acronym of letters T, E, A, M =

T Together E   Everyone   Achieves M More.


IT’S TIME TO STAR GIVING AWAY OUR BEST SEEDS  FRIEND !!!

LOST CHILDHOOD!!


The most beautiful phase in one’s life is childhood. It is filled with joy, happiness, innocence, laughter and with absolutely no worries whatsoever. Can anyone forget their childhood? Ask the elderly and they will fondly remember the “good old days” when there was no television, no cell phones, no computers and no modern day gadgets but days filled with loads of fun.

Can you even imagine that? Loads of fun? Without television, cell phones, and computer – probably this is what the youngsters of today wonder!! But I believe people back then really had more fun than youngsters of today. You know why?

Human relationship was given more importance back in the days. People used to spend more time with friends and family. Ever heard about joint family system? Joint family was families lived together under one roof – grandparents, parents, lots of grandchildren having lots of fun playing together, eating together, and laughing together. Well, we now have a new term, “nuclear family”. Here we have the father, mother and a child or two. Can you see any fun here? Both parents are working and children are lonely. We also have another phrase “old age homes” – something that was non-existent before the start of the century.

Outdoor games were so much fun – climbing trees, cycling, walking. Children used to get a lot of physical activity. There was so much bonding between friends. Children played with children and learnt to forgive and forget when mistakes were done, learnt to laugh in times of trouble and learnt how to cope with different aspects of life. What do we have nowadays? Children playing with machines and what do we have? “Little monsters!!” What a pity!!

Next we talk about studies or so-called education. We have become such a marks-oriented society. There used to be a time when learning was fun. Marks were secondary. Children studied out of curiosity, took courses of their choice and shined through in their life because they loved their job. Now, education has become a market where money is minted. Education is imparted for the sake of marks. No one is bothered whether the children are learning anything at all but it is more of memorizing and less learning. Marks are given importance to the extent that the child is pressurized beyond its capacity. It is scary to think that we are creating a society of robots who just perform functions without feelings. We hear of stress management for children. We hear of children committing suicide. This is the sad state of children in the present day world.

What about violence and vulgarity? Movies show so much violence and there is no dearth of vulgarity either and bloodshed too. Even the sitcoms are no different. Television was for entertainment back then, to relax, have a few laughs but…..no any more!!

I wish we could give our children a better society for them to grow in, better values in life. Hopefully no more children will lose their childhood in the real meaning when every parent does their duty to perfection. Let us hope for a bright future for the children of tomorrow.

Peace and Love!!!

Love!!!



The first time our eyes met,
I fell in love with you.

Every time I saw you,
My heart skipped a beat.

I never got the courage
to tell you what I felt for you.
Deep within my heart,
I knew you loved me too.

Days and months went by,
and neither of us took the
first step towards each other.
and suddenly life took a difference course
for both of us.

Now, after years, after we went separate ways,
I still cant stop thinking of you.
I only wish...you had told me those 3 words
that I had longed to hear.
But now, it is too late......

I just hope that
somewhere, someplace
you are doing fine and having a good life.

Memories!!!


Losing people we love is so hard especially when they are taken away from us at a very young age.The pain we undergo is unimaginable. It is very hard to move on despite all our efforts.

But friends and family help us through it. They are the one people who we can depend on to help us move on with life after the loss.

God gives us the strength through our friends and family.  

Even  though you can't see Him, 
GOD is there for  you .

NATURE


Nature is so wonderful,
It pushes away the sadness 
and happiness enters in,
It is so pleasing to see 
the mountains wearing white caps!!
It is so magical 
to see the waters gushing down.

I am so happy that God made this for me,
But why, Oh! why, do we destroy it?
It is pathetic to see animals being killed,
and nature being polluted by humanity.

God gave us this amazing Gift.
THE BEAUTY OF NATURE.
Why destroy it??

Save Mother Nature.

MOTHER



I have an angel,
an angel who is so pretty,
She is so wonderful,
She is an angel who looks after me,
I love my angel.

I have an unmeasurable sized love for her,
She is the one I have been looking for 
when others tease me,
She is the one whom God sent for me,
She also makes me laugh when I am sad.

One day I asked God,
"God, what should I call my angel as?"
He replied, "Simply call her  ~ MOTHER"

my beautiful daughter

Loneliness

Loneliness!!!!

There are two kinds of loneliness.....the physical and the emotional. Physical is when a person is alone by himself/herself. No person is alone for a long time. They will have family/friends. Physical loneliness can be overcome by visiting family/friends.

Emotional Loneliness: Now this is very hard. When you have family and friends but still feel alone, like you have no one for yourself.....that is real loneliness. Emotional loneliness happens when a person has no one to go to, to confide in, to talk to what they are feeling or going through at that exact moment. They could be all smiling from the outside but deep down, they are very lonely people.

This loneliness can be removed only through Love & Friendship, more so only by friends. These friends have to be really special and such friends are very hard to find these days.  But if you will be true to yourself, then you will find such a special person....there is always one such special friend.

My wish is for everyone to have one such special friend...cause then no one would suffer emotional loneliness or depression.

My advice...Be The Friend and You Will Find Your Special Friend

"We all need that one person in our lives who we can tell everything to and trust with our lives. Otherwise life becomes so lonely and painful." ~ Unknown ~

Old Age



Today, the thing that affected me most was the increase in the number of old age homes. That really shocked me!! This according to me is a shame to humanity by itself.

Parents give up almost everything to raise their children especially in these modern days, it is a huge task for parents. They are always there for the children when they need them. They take care of every aspect of children, in education, in their upbringing, in sickness. Every single parent, rich or poor, wants to give their children their very best. I accept the fact that there are exceptions but they are not whom I want to talk about.

When children fall sick, parents take care of them. In their education, parents want them to be the best and succeed in life. In their life, they want them to be a good human being. Overall, parents want the best for their children in all aspects of life i.e. good health, good education and a happy life.

But what happens to them in their old age? Again I am not going to refer to children taking care of their parents. I am very happy with them. This is for the majority not taking care of them and putting them in old age homes as is evident in the growing number of such homes all over the world.

In old age, parents are like "children". From personal experience, all they need is our love, to be there for them when they need us and to share a smile or two with them. Is that too hard for us?

Parents are always there for their children. Are we there for them always when they need us? Please think over it.

I want this flourishing business of old age homes to be gone for good. That would show that children are taking care of their parents.

Be There For Your Parents...Give them your Love....That is all they need.

My Favorite Friendship Quotes



You are the kind of friend that only heaven could have sent.

I appreciate all the things you do, and the way you show you care.

People like you are found only once in a lifetime. So you better take care of yourself because I don't want to waste another lifetime to find a such a SWEET Friend. 

If two hearts are meant to be friends, no matter how long it takes, how far they go, how tough it seems, fate will bring them together to share friendship forever.

Knowing a friend like you has made me happy in a million ways and if ever I have to let you go, I would find a million reasons to make you stay!

A friend is never a coincidence in your life, they are meant to enter your life to bring you joy and laughter. So, I will treasure the friendship between us.

Friendship

"Treat life as the sea, your heart as the shore, and friends as waves. It never matters how many waves there are, what matters is which ones touch the shore."

Your life, your heart and your friends......!!! But real friend/friends, are always only those who touch your heart and soul. 

Do we actually know the meaning of Friendship? The basis for a friendship to last is Love and love is such a difficult word to understand. Love to me is when you like another human being just as you like yourself. Would you hurt yourself? No. So, in friendship, if love is the basis, then you wouldn't hurt your friends. Once love is there, you would also care for your friend. Trust is another huge aspect of friendship. But with love as the foundation, I believe trust should come naturally. Once you break trust, everything is lost. It is like a glass that is broken; always has the scar. A friendship that is not built on love, care and trust will never last.

We are all God's beautiful creations, made in his likeness. God is Love. Go ahead and touch a soul today. Love, care and trust your friend. Treat it like glass and be careful not to break it.

Keep your friends in your heart....Always!!!

My Friends



What do my friends mean to me? Well, literally...Everything!!!

I have seen different kinds of friends but it is the ones who have left a mark in my heart whom I cherish the most. Having lived in a hostel/dorm for 5 years of my college life, I have realized that friends come in all different packages, like it or not. During troubled times and sometimes in a very hard way, we learn who our true friends are. Hold on to such good friends as they will always be there for you, through thick and thin of life.

In friendship, never expect anything in return. Then it is not friendship anymore. Give your love, laugh with them, have fun together and most importantly be there for them when they need you. That is friendship.

"People say friends must always hold hands, but true friends don't need to hold hands because they know the other hand will always be there."

Your smile is great...keep smiling

Childhood



(Bliss) What an amazing part of our life!!!! Childhood is the BEST part of anyone's life though I agree there are exceptions. It is that part, which is pure innocence and unconditional love. No disagreement there I am sure. When I look at children, I see just love. They have no hatred in them. Have you seen the mischievous look in their eyes!!!

So,
Where is all this innocence lost? When do they transform into this so-called "Adult" with no trace of what they were as a child? When do they learn of jealousy and hatred for fellow humans? When do they start having a hunger for power and fame and money?

Think about it!!
This world would be a better place if all of us, old and young, irrespective of age, would be still a child at heart. We need to give our children a better place to live in.

"I want to laugh like a child, play like a child and be innocent like a child .... but the world I live in does not allow me to be a child once more.....I would love to be a child again....!!!"

Valentine Forever

Valentine's Day may be over but we have one person who is our Valentine all through our life. 


A True Friend

 

The one who makes me laugh when I am in tears

The one with whom I can share my secrets and dreams

The one who is there for me when I need him

The one who cares for me genuinely

The one who understands my silence

The one who says the truth even if it hurts
and then wipes away the tears

Is the one I call    MY TRUE FRIEND.

Lets make it a better place to live in
by passing on a little Love

HAPPY LIVING, FOLKS!!!
