2013- A good year.

 In a matter of some time 2013 will come to an end. A new year will begin and bring with it hopes and desires for a better life. But the year that was…2013….did manage to put a smile on my face in ways that I had never expected.
    To begin with, I made a few very good friends….actually, I met a few people with whom I vibed so well that they have now become a very important part of my life.  What is it about some people we meet that makes us feel that we have known them since years? What is it that strikes a chord and bonds us with them but not with others?  I met many people……old school mates….but bonded with just a few. And I feel blessed.  There was a time when I was without this treasure called ‘friends’. But today, I have a handful few whom I can depend on and trust blindly. And thats quite an achievement!
    I also realised that I can string together words that come to my mind and present a decent piece worth reading. All thanks to a friend who I met in 2013. And it is only because of her encouragement that I started a blog and started writing and also had the guts to share it with others. For me that is quite some thing….it was a dream come true. A day dreamer that I am, I wasn’t sure of this one coming true!
    Umm, I guess these are the only two things worth writing about: others are quite ‘personal’ and not meant for PDA- public display and attention! I am not that ‘open’ as a person. As an old colleague rightly gossiped about me being ‘a closed book’, I will let her words come true!
    And I do hope that 2014 brings with it a few more reasons to smile…not just for  me, but for my dearest friends as well.  Not just reasons to smile, but good health for all and peace of mind too! Amen!
