Aviyal-bit of everything

wide open spaces..

Posted on: September 6, 2011

Things are almost packed, photos printed to personalize the room with her loved ones..she is set..all set to go away to university this Saturday.

The little girl once crawling on the floor in that baby pink layered frock is now an amazing young lady- gentle, modest, smart ( yeah, runs the family ),intelligent, caring and much more.

As much as I looked forward to this exciting day, feeling bit sad totally surprised me. You are not even going that far. I came to realize – though we did not speak regularly or met, the fact that I know your schedule and I can talk to you when I want; and that was bothering me.

I have told you this many times, but again, do you know how much I learnt from you and keep learning from you. I look up to you for many things. I wish I had your confidence (not to mention that silky and straight hair). Thank you my lovely niece.

I will continue to count on you for those baked goodies whenever you come home.

You know your mom is very proud of you..very very proud. With all the hardships both have gone through( some you understood, some you were too small to know), you emerged even stronger. You know that you have blessings coming from heaven, right?.

Go dear, spread your wings and fly, conquer the mountains( literally- mountains are part of environmental studies). Prayers, blessings and best wishes from the whole family.
I’ve picked this song for you by Dixie Chicks, hope you enjoy

(note: drafted this last week. Her orientation days so far in the uty have been fabulous. Freshers are jamican dancing to bhangra beats while eating italian goodies..lot of oppotunities to mingle, jingle and learn. she is happy there)
