Hail February!


Yes its been a lovely February, weather wise. You couldn’t ask for more. The showers, the breeze, the tentative sun, playing with the clouds, an absolutely lovely scene beyond those windows. The trees and plants lapping it all up, sometimes see them dancing away gaily; the chirping birds, the hopping sparrows, the circling seagulls….there’s a nice nip in the air, and hope March doesn’t turn too hot all in a rush.

The upcoming weekend being a long one, can almost sense the crowd thronging towards the beaches and parks and the open spaces. With the Liberation Day and Kuwait National Day, coming up, the decorations starting to make its presence felt, we are in for some gay celebrations and some wonderful moments wallowing in the prevailing absolutely enviable climate, here in Kuwait! Yeah!!

I just read ur comment...iam sure u have ur reasons, well thought out...and i can understand from ur childs perspective...be honest abt it...my parents had to send us to a boarding school..they were trying to make the ends meet...they were going thru a patch that was tough...everything that they owned was in mortage...they didnt want to us to see wht they were going thru....there were periods of hand me down cloths and no shoes...but we were safe...looked after...getting an education...vacations spend in uncles' houses.. sometimes in the school itself when the uncles' wives were tired of the presence of 3 boys..we missed our parents...but the times when we were together was what all i can remember....the love...the patience...understanding...

it must be hard...but i know this...our children are better versions of ourselves...they are the possibility...of what we can never be....it must be hard....let them know that.
