We all need a hug now and then Make us feel like we belong Like someone cares about our feelings It’s a connection that cannot be articulated When we embrace someone, we convey so much more Than simple words can ever do.
Of all the goodness the dining table holds My first desire is to reach for fresh warm loaves of bread Leave the meat and delicacies for others who crave them My heart and stomach love those fresh rolls, muffins, and biscuits It is easy to give up most of the good things But don’t ask me to forsake my favorite form of carbs Sometimes a desire flickers in my mind to stop this madness But as it is often said, you cannot forgo your true love!

A new beginning is the best time to take stock. What we did, and what we want to do going forward.
When I think back on how the last year was, I feel grateful. Nothing momentous happened but it were numerous small victories that made the year memorable. We all, the family got vaccinated, stayed healthy and did well work wise. The little ones grew up another year and it was so much joy to see them learning to talk, to form opinions, and getting naughtier by the day. I think our biggest gain was health and happiness last year.
Going forward, What do we want from next year? People advise us to be ambitious when setting our goals but I believe that we should be practical. Set small, achievable targets. Little things that make a difference in our lives.
And last but not the least, wipe the slate clean of regrets and broken hopes. It’s time to move on and look forward.
“I have started to think that the great, decisive moments that broadly govern our lives are far less conscious at the time than they seem later when we are reminiscing and taking stock.” ~ Sándor Márai
You ask me to describe the color of a wintry day I’ll tell you it’s golden, glowing with warm sunshine It warms the insides with its generous sharing of heat Sitting out in the afternoon sun, braving the cold wind Here you find the extraordinary in the ordinary Just to see the winter driven away by slanting sun rays You might think winter days are blue or grey, drab But have you experienced the joy a crackling fire brings When you shut the door on sleet and snow outside And extend your hands towards that warmth And it warms your insides just like the golden sun does
The sunset glow opens the doorway A doorway to the past which I had kept firmly closed for a while Some memories that were to be kept hidden To be cherished like a treasure Only to be enjoyed when nostalgia strikes Memories of the sweetest, rarest moments That may lose some of their charm if relived ………Once too often
