Life's a journey , not a destination ..

Between bidding goodbye to one sister, preparing for the welcome of another and then bidding her goodbye too, the month of August in its entirety has been an absolute crazy but nevertheless fun filled family time.. not to mention it’s flown past with tremendous speed and all and any attempts to be regular with my writing have been in vain … but then again, it’s not every day one gets to be in the joyous company of family.. and whilst the first visit entailed dealing only with my sister.. the second visit had me around children , my 10yr old niece and 6yr old nephew and what a riot that was.. and one hell of a glimpse into the future too ;)

It might sound strange but ever since I remember I have always wanted 2 children, a boy and a girl.. that I haven’t even started working on one is an entirely different subject matter but if I could have my way I’d love to have a boy and a girl , if not , I guess two boys or two girls would work too ;) .. Anyways the point I was making was that having children around made me realize that while I do look forward to having my own someday ..the fact that life will never ever be the same again once they are born is also true.. coz no matter how much one plans , prepares or speculates ..what it really comes down to, is the fact that no one really knows how life will change when they become a parent , they only know for certain that it will .. and while a part of me looks forward to the seismic changes a child will bring in our lives and maybe a tiny part of me also wistfully wishes I could fast forward time, the more 'sensible' part of me also realizes the fact that "this part" of my life , the one that has the two of us together , this will never ever be or feel the same again ..

To sum it all up , I share this quote ..

"The other day a man asked me what I thought was the best time of life. "Why," I answered without a thought, "NOW." ~ David Grayson ..

    I loved this post, it's so easy to forget sometimes that today is what matters today.

  2. Dont make us wait for too long Priya.....Twenty odd years down the line you both will have each other again when the kids leave the nest to live their own lives.
    You will definitely want to rewind time becoz time spent in raising kids just flies past.We...papa and I often wish we could rewind time to the years when you all were babies.But you re right...enjoyin
    what the present offers makes sense.
