Happy Birthday, Sarah


I got a call from Sarah yesterday saying '' Nute, arn't you coming home?"

Me: "Of course, I am"

Her: " You are not going to be here for my birthday. Do you remember that tomorrow is my birthday?"

Me: "Of course, honey, I remember" (I lied a bit...stopped counting the date)

Her: "So, does that mean that you are not going to be here for my birthday?"

Me: (Tough question) "Sorry sweety, I won't be able to make it..still stuck up with my work"

Her: "Well, if you are not here, we are not going to celebrate it"

Me: "Why not??" (bit surprised here) "You have to celebrate whether I am there or not..and be happy"

Well..the conversation goes and with her saying "I really miss you".....and I really miss you too, darling. I really wish I could be there.

Sarah, it's hard to believe that you have turned 10 this year..wow..it seems like yesterday when I hold you in my arms and dressed you up. Yes, I used to take you to Aganwadi and you were barely able to talk.

Oh, how I missed you and love you.

I really wish I could be there for you on your special day.

Tough I am not with you, remember that my heart is with you and I love you with all my heart.

Remember that you have been such a blessing to our family; specially to your granny.

I love you, Sarah and Happy Birthday to you! I thank God for giving you to me, to us.

God bless you, my darling niece.
