Happy New Year - 2013

I like that Christmas comes in the end of the year. When the year is ending, Christmas a festival of love, joy and warmth gives the message that nothing is permanent. Life is changing all the time, if the moments of happiness are not there, the sad moment will also vanish soon. 

This Christmas we went to park, Gagan my sister ( meri moonh boli bahan) invited us to the park, it was her birthday also two days ago. The dress code was white and red. It was good to see everyone dressed in red and white. I bought a cute dress for Reet for this occasion. Siddharth became the Santa and distributed gift to all. 

I like the way when we all get together and enjoy the moments, living behind all the tensions and sorrow. The energy we all create in that space remains in my heart and makes me feel glad all the time. 

Here are the few pics from the fun we had together.

When I reflect back in these pictures, I look forward to the new year with the energy from these moments.  I wish everyone joy and togetherness.I wish when both my kids grow up they can look back at these pics and remember the moments of joy they had together on Reet's first Christmas. 

I say the prayer for the coming year and many more to come:
God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.

Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
