F – FRIENDS & FLOWERS


This post is dedicated to all my Friends. 

Friends and Flowers go together, both bring smile to face, and both of them have always inspired me.  I love having friends and flowers in my life. They are truly STARS shining in darkness. 

My mother was very fond of flowers, and she was very particular to buy flowers to adorn herself, and some flowers were offered to God as garlands and bouquets for special occasions in the family.

This is something me and my mom have in common. Friends have been a part of my life, from childhood I had always friends, who were close to me, shared their jokes and secrets, played with me, sang with me and also studied with me.

As I moved to adolescents, my friends changed and I had very few friends, as this phase was transitory one with hormones playing havoc, these friendships were not sustained, gradually as I moved into adulthood, I developed a lot more of friends, and I loved them.

If not for them in my life, I would have developed anxiety, fear, depression, stress and a whole lot of psychological problems. Thanks to  friends who listened to my problems, some taught me to love and accept myself, others helped set goals in life, some others were my financial advisors, and still some others  were an experience of God in my life.

Just like the bouquet of flowers, every friend is unique, beautiful and has contributing to my personality. Whatever I have done, and have been able to do, it is only because of my friends, they say friends are an extension of our families, so true in my life:

A NOTE OF APPRECIATION FOR MY FRIENDS
 “I want to thank each one of you, for having been my very special gift.  I thank you for accepting me in your life; enabling and empowering me in my journey towards health, wholeness and harmony. 

I want you to know that I am grateful to each one of you in my life; and thanks for trusting me and thank you for making a difference in my life! “
