We are one

My darling Pari,

Within minutes, the clock will strike twelve and we will turn one year old. I can feel my heart beating loud in my ears, just the way I had felt a year ago. You were born and I was re-born on this day, this makes us both one year old.

They say time flies, but for us that wasn’t the case. The good thing being, though slowed, but time decided to move on. An important lesson we both need to learn on this special day.

I had so many thoughts bubbling in my mind that I wanted to put down in this letter, but the only thing ringing in my mind now is your birthday cake.

Please don’t give that kind of shocked look. I know it sounds crazy, but yes, that is all I can think of because I have been working on it from past two weeks (as in researching which cake to bake) and have spent the entire evening today bringing all my thoughts together in the form of the cake of the BIG day!

Though I can’t wait for the moment when we’ll cut the cake to see how my efforts have fared, but let me assure you I have tried to put all my prayers, my dreams and wishes for you in this cake. You’ll understand it better once you have a look at it.

Wow! my little princess is now a big girl, who’ll begin running around in no time. As realization of this fact is gradually sinking in, I am beginning to wonder how I managed this one year of massive responsibility with all the clutter and chaos in our lives. It wouldn’t have been possible without the prayers and constant support of the people in our life.

As I pray to thank the supreme power for blessing us with this beautiful day in our lives, I pray for everyone part of our life (be it close or far) to stay happy, healthy and peaceful forever.

With lots of love and blessings my darling, a very Happy Birthday to you.


P.S. – This letter was actually written on Pari’s birthday eve.
