this is life ,Carry On...

from past few days i have been really busy
and my mind has been clogged with so many things 
busy because i am doing preparation for my sons upcoming birthday
and mind is clogged because i am feeling homesick and nostalgic.
so though one part of me is busy planning for the celebration 
other part of me is missing everyone 
one part of me is listing out everything 
other part of me is  telling me what i will be missing 
one part of me tells me this is life carry on
other part tells me this is life look beyond.
So when my father tells me about  the poem
 which he wrote for my sons birthday 
and when my mother reads it with tears filled eyes 
i could feel the pain they were feeling
 but i had to fake a smile for them 
so that they dont feel my pain 
or how i am feeling
thanks to skype
i feel closer to them everyday
as one part of me telle me this is life carry on 
and the other part tells me this is life look beyond,..
I was elated when  i heard about the marriage
of my cousin which would  be held in two months 
excited because i would be meeting everyone 
and there would be so much fun
three days of festival like celebration
and love,laughter and happiness 
but then i knew i wont be able to make it 
because of the planned trip to oversesas
one part of me tells me its just a marriage
other part tells me to plan the trip ahead
so with tears filled eyes i am planning for the trip
and faking a smile and telling everyone i am so happy
as one part of me tells me this is life carry on
other part tells me this is life look beyond.

hi notyet100,

Been long since I stepped into the blogging circle. Since I had a baby last year I have been too busy. In the little bit time I got I wrote a book on Baby food. I thought I'll share the link with you:

Do check it out sometime.

Bye and take care,
