One of my collegues just a got freshly brewed coffee.. The smell is too good..
I just recollect the one at home.. When I wake up in the morning.. I go down to the hall after brushing my teeth.. Both mom and dad are full of smiles wishing me a good morning.. And in 2 mins. I have the news paper in my hand.. All this while I can smell that wonderful filter coffee :)
Well I hate coffee.. Love tea.. but this smell sometimes just tempts me..So at home I drink coffee with lots of milk so that it doesnt taste bitter...
How I wish I could go back now and re-live those moments..

Moments in US

Why is this happening.. I am so fed up of life here...It is so lonely... How long do I keep myself engaged with stuff...I dont want to have such memories when I go back from here...

When I came here.. even though i felt a little home sick. it was coz i was away from far... But i had gr8 roomies and we had lot of was like a second home..

We cooked together, watched TV together.. had dinner together...
Even for a small thing, we went to the shop together... And shopping meant so much fun..
Be it Walmart, K-Mart or Mall.. we always went together.. selected things for each other...

Once we were home... it was a rule.. we had to wear all the dresses we bought.. and do a fashion parade...then we scrutinize which ones to be kept and which ones to be returned...

I still remember and cherish these moments in my life.. which had made my life so beautiful in US....

Just Mom!!!

I just want to run away from everything and everybody.. oh but over here there is nobody.. From whom do I run?? This situation is totally getting on my nerves. I dont feel like going to office.. dont feel like going home.. Just want to go back to mom.. Want to lie on her lap.. Want her shoulders to cry on...
Why does this keep happening every now and then.. I know that I love mom the most and I depend so much on her.. But sometimes inpite of me being so strong.. I depend on mom to find some mental peace.. How much ever i am confused or depressed.. once I talk to her.. all my burdens are just gone.. I feel that now I can sleep like a baby.. with no worried no tensions..

People are amazed by God's creations.. The animal the plants.. but God's best creation is Mom...
She is there anytime of the day (and night).. U dont have to tell her.. if u r sad.. She just comes to know .. and not just by ur face.. by ur voice.. just a touch.. just a feeling.. If there is Telepathy existing then mom has that power.. I just call home and say hi.. she knows I am happy or sad..

As and when u grow.. u meet other people and then someday you find a very special person in life.. with whom you decide to spend the rest of your life..
But even that very special person cannot take ur mom's place... U still find peace only with mom..

Thank u so much ma.. for being there for me.. as a a a friend.. as my life..

This post was initially not to talk about how gr8 moms are.. but somehow even the mention of her.. made me feel much better..
