Highlights in a day

  • Waking to the aroma of Amma's steaming coffee
  • Getting to read the paper before Appa
  • Making it on time to the bus stop
  • Your bus reaching on time and finding a seat
  • Giving your seat to the old lady at the next stop and watching her eyes smile thankfully
  • Taking time to wear matching ear-rings and necklace before a big test
  • Your best friend actually noticing the match and complimenting you
  • Lying on the dew bathed concrete with your friends on a cold wintry night and admiring meteor showers
  • Whispering 'Miss You's over long distance calls
  • Finding a simple "I am alive" mail from a long lost friend after years
  • Getting appreciation for a post well written or a job well done
  • Coming home from office and NOT finding an empty house
  • Dressing up and finding approval in his eyes
  • Snuggling on the living room couch to watch 'Roman Holiday' for a millionth time
  • Receiving a huge bouquet when you least expect it
  • Pressing flowers from the bouquet in your favorite book to save a part of that moment
  • Cleaning your room and finding a faded photo of your childhood
  • Receiving a phone call early morning to wish you on your 26th wedding anniversary

The Little things in life are important Appa. The most important :)

Happy 26th Wedding Anniversary to both of you!
