Death is one force of nature I dare not question and time is the essence of life that I have no control….

A kind human being, a perfectly imperfect father, and a loving grandfather has received a glorious farewell on a journey to the beyond. As angry I was with him for not giving me a chance to say goodbye, (of course I was being selfish!), I believe he’s lived a fulfilling life – be it seeing his children succeed in life, taking his grandchildren on walks of endearing conversations, partnering his wife in the kitchen with his wisecracks, tending to the plants he dearly loves, or keeping his retired life busy with many of his engagements.

Always with a quick retort gracing his lips, a witty mind that draws out a chuckle, and an impeccable sense of humor, his persona was one of a kind. We watched many a show together, rooted for our favorite sports with excitement, and spent countless hours over drinks with gratifying conversations and life’s experiences. He imparted hard work and discipline as a step to success and humility and kindness as virtues. He’s always been a silent giver, unconditionally I may say, and a father, uncle and grandfather to a large brood of family and extended family.

As much as he has left a void in my life, a father more than a father-in-law, he’s given me a never ending slideshow of images – sitting in his favorite rocking chair, the impish smile when he cracks a joke, his habitual walks and chores done to the second, his teasing and eternal complaint of being surrounded by the females in the family. I wonder if he ever realized that this very fact of his life is part of the legacy his sons have been rewarded with…..guess the last laugh’s on him! 🙂

You will be missed everyday of our lives…..and I am so proud and honored to be a part of this family.

Eulogy 2014

As another year gets ready to write it’s final lines of its existence, leaving behind memories of pain and loss, of gain and recovery, of mistakes and hurt, I’ve learned to embrace the small blessings bestowed on me, of the tiny pleasures of daily life, and the sweet smiles of loved ones, of the helping hands and the constants in life; grateful, appreciative and thankful!

This year has been a steady flow of mending fences, bringing sanity to minds, re-laying foundation for fledglings and re-evaluating selves. I’ve re-connected with a childhood passion of reading and writing that took me through a doorway into a whole new world; a world that gave me immense personal satisfaction and brought me in touch with some charming and beautiful personalities. And these very personalities and creative artists have decorated my life with their charisma and friendship.

I may have mentioned several times, and will continue to do so; to me love is a journey of the good with the bad, the pain with the cure, and the ups with the downs, going forward and together. And my mate indeed made his presence known stronger than concrete and reclaimed the crown of my eternal soul mate! He has been a bull with a goal to solidify the foundation and single-mindedly went about it. With his many quirks, patience and understanding, he’s managed to keep his sassy, charming, beautiful gem of a wife right next to him ;).

My daughters have blossomed into two amazing human beings, who have made me proud and I shall always be eternally grateful for their presence in my life. With their typical teenage oddities, many idiosyncrasies, non-stop questions about life and their fanatical obsession with One Direction, they keep us entertained, muddled, annoyed and rooted!!! And lots of times I wonder with my husband, how a dysfunctional couple like us have managed to parent these two charming daughters.

No trades offered for them!!!! J

And now, here I’m again, a couple of years later, more than half way down on this wonderful path called my life, reminiscing some could haves and should haves, yet not regretting things that have happened and have learned not to confuse sadness with any regrets. A different person, hopefully a better person, and with a wish to pass on some warmth, empathy and compassion where it is needed, I hope to be there for the people in need.

My belief that things happen for a reason, and with life throwing its usual curve balls, choices will be made, futures may be different, journey will be destined and fate will take us on a ride that already has been decided……as always. We are just players on the stage of that life, and we are entitled to all the surprises that come our way. And I’ve realized that sometimes not everyone can be a part of my journey, and that only a few would be with me until the very end.

As my family and I enter another New Year with new dreams and aspirations, I thank the year gone by for its priceless lessons and bountiful blessings. As I welcome the New Year with renewed hope and faith, I draw strength and courage from my wonderful husband and my daughters, and my extended family, as they constantly remind me of their unconditional support and love.

My family to yours, here’s wishing everyone a safe and healthy New Year, and hoping that the new year brings more joys than sorrows, and more happiness than sadness, painting the walls of your life, with some priceless memories.
