Yesterday, I turned a year older, or to say a year wiser?
Any which ways this specific day has always been overwhelming to me, not only in positive circumstances but otherwise too.
This day, I realise sometimes my importance in other’s life. I know how much they mean to me and I make it clear too, in some way or the other but I get to know my significance on this day. (There are a lot of other reasons other than wishing me for my birthday)
It’s not about wishing me a “happy birthday”, it is after all just my birthday. But it is about just remembering me. There were many people who did forget me, and did make me a little uncomfortable, made me wonder as to why was I losing people year after year.
I just realised yesterday that I always say that I am searching myself, but in that quest I am also losing people. That is the price I am paying.
Anyways, this post isn’t about them, it is about those lovely souls who made my day “magical”. 😉
And I could not believe my eyes when those warm wishes touched my heart. Yes, my friends and family did wish me, but there was an unexpected turn when wishes from the virtual world came pouring in.
First off, dear Elizabeth, thanks a lot for your warm wishes here, the messages and the tweets, it did mean a lot to me. You basically wished me at every possible virtual place, not to forget your virtual hug and that LOUD singing of the birthday song. Your voice isn’t that bad, you know.
Then there were unexpected tweets from fellow bloggers kalyan and shivam. Thank you both of you for those lovely wishes.
Had it been a year before now, I wouldn’t have believed that I’d have virtual friends, that too such lovely people.
Apart from this, you know what I loved? Bhavna, a special friend of mine, she made me feel so special, I just love her a lot. And yes, one more thing, Mr. Yadu, he wrote me such a wonderful poem, I couldn’t believe my eyes, staring at that message. Thanks a ton for that too! I mean, a poem? For me? Oh my god!!
There were a lot of things that I could go on thanking for, but I don’t want to make it a thank you note. So I’ll stop here.
But I need to say one more thing, the thing that has made me even happier, the best thing that happened to me last week apart from the poem of course! So all week long, I kept getting packets from a courier company; and you know what it revealed? What it had hidden beneath?
What could just make it any better? It counted to a total of 16 books!!!!! The last package delivered to me yesterday, containing 7 books.
And I am just so happy now, what other gift could have been better for me?
So may be a little wiser after all.
