~"And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”~
....and another year added to this short span of life and I grew a year older today....Happy Birthday to me.
I never thought that I would ever hate to grow old, but now I am. I am in fear of growing old in each passing years and I am in fear to face the mirror to see that I am growing old indeed. I truly believe that each phase of life has its own charm and beauty. So do I enjoy this phase of life where my days are exploring the childhood once again with my little one. But still, sometimes a hidden aspiration raps my mind, making me totally dunned. In my first twenty years I wished to god, might be every day, to grow old soon. But as I stationed to the Thirty I wished to travel back to the early tracks to enjoy my childhood, student life, college days again and again. Am I the only one to think like this or you are also on the same boat wishing to sail back to the realm of innocence once again!!!
This is the eternal philosophical humdrum, cycles in the human minds in the anticipating fear of getting old. I am no exception nor you or anybody. Today is my birthday and I don’t want to make my mind melancholic any way with this perpetual truth.
In my every birthday, I gift myself something special. I consider my birthday, especially a day of mine, when I am not only special for everybody but very very special for me too. The day of stepping in the world, I love to share specially with my mom, dad and sister. But now it’s not possible as they live on the other part of the world and I am on the other. Thanks to the tele-communication that still made the distance shorter to at least by sharing the voices or watching each other through the webcam. I specially miss my mom, dad and sister on this day too much. Today early in the morning my mom, dad and sister called me and sang the Happy Birthday song and my day became brighter than ever. And when my little daughter gifted me a beautiful card which she made by her own hand with the help of her dad, I got the best gift I owned ever.
So now I have two more special people in my world. The birthday celebrating responsibility now is taken by my husband and our little daughter (who thinks each birthday, whether it’s her mom’s or dad’s birthday, as her birthday) assists him in full of vigour and she will keep on saying –“It’s my birthday party today”. That is the most innocent phase of life, which makes our days brighter and brighter even the dark days too. They gave me a beautiful lunch and dinner outside and a bunch of sweet gifts, include chocolates, tiny little model cars etc.
Yogurt- 2 table spoons
1. Blend all the ingredients in to a smooth puree.
2. Freeze for two hours. Then again blend the frozen puree in the mixer. Do the same in every two hours for 3-4 times.
3. Then keep in the freezer over night. You will never believe then that ice cream can be made so easy.
