Happy Birthday Dearest A!!!

They say friends are family by choice and in some way it is true for our desi arranged marriages too. Four years back, when my Sis in law became part of my family, I had dreams of girlish bonding, gossiping and such. What I got instead was a rather quiet, doe eyed beauty who listened more than she ever talked. Over the years, she has grown on me like a piece of A.R. Rahman music. We meet each other almost every week. I play with my niece and she hovers in the background never once asserting her right over her daughter. I cherish her for that unspoken love and understanding more than I have ever told her.

So, as she turns a whole year older, I think of her with warm wishes in my heart. I wish for her a lifetime enveloped by love of her family, a career that soars upward and all those little dreams that sparkle in her eyes come true.

Happy Birthday Anila! Have a wonderful, wonderful day. You are loved more than you know.
