April 2013

It's April 10, 2013 today. Its been more than a year since I wrote any post in this blog of mine. I often visit my blog but somehow never able to write anything. During this time a lot of things have changed in my life.

My son is now 30 months old. Well, I can't believe it somehow. He is really a cute and adorable little darling. I know all the moms say this about their kids, and I believe all of them are right! My husband and I are still living in the same town working at the same place.

 There has been a tragedy in my life. On 15th day of Decmeber 2011, I lost my mom. She died in India while I was here- so far from her. I couldn't even see her for the last time. It wasn't easy for me. It's been a year now. I guess that was my main reason for not writing on my blog.My last post was on December 8, 2011. I didn't know then that after a week of that I will lose my mom. I was busy planning for christmas party and celebration when the world fell apart for me. I guess not seeing my mom during her last hours still make me feel that she is alive and is in India. I somehow cant relate to the fact that she is no more. I talk to my dad often and know that he is all alone now. Learning to live without her and live his life, but its not easy especially for Indian men who are totally dependent on their spouses for emotional support.

 Well, as there is a saying that time is the biggest healer, I think as time goes by things will be much better. I want to connect with my siblings but all of them (and me too) are too busy in their jobs, kids and families that I am not sure it is possible.There are distances between us some seen, and some unseen.

Since I don't want to end this post on a sad note, I want to let you all know that its almost time for the school out, just few weeks more. My husband and I are planning to visit India this summer, it's time for the first hair cut of our son. In our culture we have a ceremony for this and a big feast where we invite all our relatives, friends and neighbors. My husband's parents are waiting for us to come and spend some time with them. My dad too wants us to be there.

I hope this summer will be fun!

 I will talk to you guys soon.
