Dear Sakshi, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr3QcjzKz50
What a wonderful way to begin a day...:-) my dearest friend delivered a cute baby boy today at 3:15am.....It is indeed a joy to start ur day with such happy tidings...I still remember the day we both joined college...it all seems like just yesterday...we both finished 5 years of college together, but it was only during the last two years that we really became close friends....soon we were married the same year again!!!! and ended up in the same place as well...and then we both felt the joy of becoming a mother...:-) for her the journey has moved onto the next phase,with her lil' one with her...lol!!! I still have three more months ahead of me...trust me the waiting is becoming intolerable :-) But today I am sooo happy for her , my dear friend and her lil' angel....Yesterday when I knew she had gone into active labour, I felt like it was me and not her in that labour room....gosh!!! I had a fitful night and finally when I got the call bearing the gud news...I whispered to my lil' one..."ur lil' friend has made it fine, can't wait to see u now...:-) " and I wished upon time to fly with renewed vigour, so that I can soo feel my baby in my arms...:-) All in all today seems to be bright with the sunshine of hope and new beginnings for my dear friend.....:-)

Once we reached the hospital, i was in jitters...:-) trust i never wanted something soo much in my life...I was praying, holding Vinu's hand tight, waiting in the clinic's lab for that one precious word....and when finally the lab technician handed me the paper....lol! I literally snatched it up...feasting my eyes on that one word..."Positive"....U can't imagine the exhilaration I felt, I just held that paper close to me, fearing I would lose it otherwise....:-) Does it seem too emotional guys....? well maybe...Vinu kept teasing me afterwards...but that sparkle of joy in his eyes said it all...And u know what, at that precise moment I realised that, my very own darling mother had gone through this very moment many years before....
Life is full of surprises, some that you may really love, some that may prove to be a shock...The moment when I knew that a lil’ life had begun its journey in me, well….I will treasure those minutes of my life forever…You have seen so many such moments around u, but only when it actually happens to u,that u realize the beauty of such a moment. I didn’t laugh out loud, I didn’t scream in happiness, no…nothing of that sort…I just told Vinu , “ U knw wht….i think there is a baby in me….” Lol!!! He was soo happy, but both of us kept our joy in check….I knw !!! it wasn’t fair at all, but we wanted to be sure, really sure that ok! This was it!

Probably this is how I would address each and everyone of my dear friends in my blog,as Sakshi....:-) To begin without any formal words is the best way to begin I suppose.I am going through a most beautiful phase in my life and to be able to share it with all of u is the best part of it all....To know that an angel of God thrives in you, is a woman's most cherished dream, and it is that which completes you as a woman I feel...:-) God has gifted me with an angel and it is indeed a most blessed phase in my life. To be a mother, to feel the beauty of motherhood sounds a bit dramatic I know, but hey! those who know me know exactly how I feel...The lil' one has started kicking most earnestly, that does make me nervous occasionally, but I am getting used to all of this now....but yesss! it is gonna be one hell of a change for me to be entering this new arena of life....but that's what life is all about isn't it? new experiences and challenges that continually hone you as a complete individual...:-) so for now, I am content enjoying this wonderful feeling of being a mother...
