Positively Glowing


… pretty, precious, and permanently upbeat 🙂

That’s our Parukutty!

From the day she’s come into our lives, a few years ago, she has charmed everyone with her unputdownable optimism, and the lucid innocence of her ways 🙂 No matter what the weather, the sun shines out of her face, and her manners! The one thousand wattage of her smile, the peal of laughter at the drop of a hat, the uninhibited manner of her speaking in Malayalam, to all and sundry, without taking offence at our notoriously clannish mallu brigade – she wins hearts as if it is all she does! She does. She truly does.


There she is with that brilliant smile all aglow in the sure knowledge of herself, and how much we love her 🙂

Today we celebrate, along with her, yet another lovely day – her birthday! Though miles away is she from me, and the rest of her extended family, we hold her close in our hearts, as always, wishing her life’s best; loads of love and happiness; the certain surety of hands that will always be outstretched to help; that she knows how very much we love her!

And yet again, it is celebration too, as she and Arjun herald news that the stork shall visit them, and us 😀 😀 ! The happiness we too share is boundless as theirs is, as we along with them await the little one’s arrival, wishing that Pratibha and Arjun have an easy time 🙂 So, yes, it’s official, here – Arjun and Pratibha are going to have a baby 🙂 🙂

That is to add to the already numerous lovelinessess of my dearest DIL (my heart, yes, literally 🙂 ) – and Arjun’s of course! 😛 Do join me in wishing that they have a safe passage to the little one’s arrival, and that all of them remain healthy and happy, and well beloved!

Love you my dearest Parukutty! I know this is delayed by a few hours 🙂 What to do, the internet speed here is atrocious – in cpl!

God Bless you abundantly, my dear! Hugsy wugsy! And loads of kisses!

Happy Birthday dearest gurl! Have the best of years ahead!
