Vani’s Musings

Archive for December 2007

We are at a cusp…the end of 2007 and beginning of 2008.

 I felt it was time to take a moment and savor all the bitter & sweet moments of this past year. 

2007 has been special in more ways than one. I felt it was time to count blessings and thank the Creator for bestowing so much on us.

 It was on the 1st of January 2007 that I decided to take the plunge…into the blog world. From then on, there has been no turning back.

 It was this year that I got back long lost friends, people who I had missed for long.

 It was this year that my blog and BaLaga helped me trace cousins from long lost family branches and friends from school that I had lost contact with. 

It was this year that I made a major professional transition, a decision that changed my life and way of thinking and made me very different from what I was. I met 11 beautiful people, my batch mates, who make each day worth looking forward to. The very thought of meeting them all spurs me up every morning and each challenge and obstacle is tackled with grit and confidence. 

It was this year that many of my friends became proud papas and mamas and welcomed little princes and angels into their lives. I wish all of them lot of happiness in the years to come.

 It was this year that I met a cousin, whom I hadn’t spoken to, in that past 12 years. Arni Narendra, I think catching up with you was one of the biggest things that happened to me this year.

  In retrospect, I think this has been a good year, bar stray bitter moments, but they too have passed without much damage.

 On this note, I thank everyone for being with me this year, wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and safe new year, and hope for an equally good, if not better, 2008.
