A good friend once told me that it is during the worst of times that we should be dead bent on digging out that silver lining. So here I go… silver lines dug out from the throes of emotional times.
Ten Things Of Thankful:16
Love. What is it really?
Even as I stand at the doorstep of a marriage fought for in the name of Love, I honestly have no idea what it is.
All that I do know is that I have met a man who is willing to stand by my side through the worst of times. A man who, when faced with the nasty, ugly bits of my character, chose not to run away but rather put up with me while silently but steadily stealing his way into my heart and smoothening out the rough edges. A man who fills my heart with this inexplicable urge to live my life to its fullest. A man who has made me his topmost priority ever since the first day our paths crossed. A man who has poured so much of his sincerity and heart into protecting me, nurturing me and making me happy that it hurts to think of not having him by my side always. A man who has re-ignited my passion to live, to dream. A man who has such goodness in his heart that at times I am ashamed at my own selfishness.
I do not know what Love is but I do know that his smiling, happy face means everything to me and I want to spend the rest of my life by his side to make sure that it never fades.
Thank you… for everything… 🙂
Family, as anyone who has ever stumbled into Iliria will realize, is my Everything. Life without them is more like food without salt. Right now not being on good terms with them I am unable to share my life with my Mother the way I used to. No more long calls at night bursting with stories to tell her, no more nothing. How do I find myself a silver lining in this scenario…?
Well, for one, they have accepted my decision halfway through and that I am sure is a huge step towards making it up to them for taking a stance against their wishes.
I am glad I have them and love each of them very very much.
Thank you for this blessing you have sent my way… Please do bestow upon me the strength to make sure our bonds never get broken, stretched as they may be…
Thank you… 🙂
Y’know, it’s really weird how at times the most unlikely people tend to touch the hidden chords of your heart. Sometimes kindness dribbles through from the most unexpected quarters.
Of late as I stumble through the dark corridors of my life at present it is two people who have stood by my side showering kindness on me and filling my heart with the strength it needs.
The first is someone who was once a stranger from Indiana 🙂
Grandpa, Thank you… You have NO IDEA how much you mean to me. I often wonder as to what quirk of coincidence it is that made our paths in life cross.
Whatever may be the reason behind it, I am glad.
I am happy we “met”.
Thank you… 🙂
The second is a colleague of mine. The only one before whom I have shed tears.
She doesn’t know it but I have never held the hand of a friend or let anyone comfort me when lost. I have never let myself become emotional or vulnerable before anyone (except of course my man). When I cry, I cry alone behind shut doors.
You have no idea how much your words of comfort mean to me. I know I may not mean much to you but I want you to know that when I address you as my elder sister, I mean it. You mean that much to me. I will never forget the kindness you have bestowed upon me ever since we met. You have goodness in your heart, treasure it… 🙂
Thank you for everything dear chechi 🙂
Anyone who has followed my TTOTs will know how I have quite often forgone dinner owing to lack of means. Well, the good news is, ever since I met my Mr. Right, he has not let me go to bed hungry. And trust me, I sure as hell am grateful for that!
Thank you! 🙂
I know it won’t make much sense to say this but when I come to think of it, I have had much more experiences in my life over the last 10 months than I have had in the last 23years!
I have travelled a lot more, made quite a few good friends, seen more places than I have all my life so far, been able to buy the things I have always wanted to buy my mother, and strike off quite a few things from my bucket list. Time I made a new one I think 😉
Thank you… 🙂
My brother recently made my boss intervene in my issue and asked him to talk me into changing my mind. Unfortunately for my family, the tables turned right against them and right now, thanks to that one move from my brother, things have gone way out of our control and speeded up way beyond my control. I am in fact overwhelmed by the regard everyone is showering on the two of us. I never expected such support from so many quarters. The funny thing is my family, whom I expected would be the only ones to support me, is the only ones who don’t support our union (they haven’t met or spoken to him yet).
On a positive note, I do have people who are being unbelievably and unexpectedly kind to us and I am grateful for every bit of it!
Thank you… 🙂
Yesterday when I mentioned to my friend that a wedding is looming large on the horizon, he told me that he is just a phone call away and that if I am in need of anything he’ll be there for me. For a person with a miniscule social circle it meant a lot to hear that. The fact that I am at the moment emotionally fragile since I do not have my family for support and am pretty much alone in life made his words even more meaningful.
Thank you… 🙂
I had a long conversation with my Mr. Right this morning. I just love the way he takes the time and effort to sort out issues and put my mind at rest even when he is burning within. He is such a darling despite the fact that I am such a complete bitch! Really, what did I do to deserve a guy like him?!
My roomate’s elder sister has given birth to a healthy baby boy!! 🙂 🙂
May God Bless the dear child! 🙂 🙂
Life is good. You just have to learn to see the good and make a habit out of it I guess. Happiness doesn’t happen. It is a choice.
Good day to you! 🙂
