‘Happy birthday Kristen’.
‘I think there might be something in the tree’, Mike said.
‘In the tree?’ Kristen moved closer to it. There was a hollow place at eye-level. She put her hand inside and felt a small package, and pulled it out. It was a gift box. ‘What is this?’
‘Open it’, he said.
Kristen opened it and her eyes widened. In the box was a beautiful emerald ring, surrounded by diamonds, set in platinum. … More Surrounded by diamonds, set in platinum

My love for music though,
The tunes, the lyrics – harmony.
Till I realized music is much more.
See the harmony – lyrics and tunes,
All delicately thought and carefully put together.
So for love’s sake,
I learnt the art
To make passionate music.
I made music that resonated far more the beats
It stayed with me longer than the smiles
It brought out the best in me.
My strength, my weakness – you. … More Learning the Notes
I saw a picture message on Instagram on Sunday asking people to drop comments to describe their fathers. I was shocked at the alarming number of insulting comments and curses by people to their Dads. Like seriously? “He-goat”, “Bastard”, “What does that even mean?”, “There’s no such word in my dictionary”. And I wondered, how does a father, who is supposed to be the epitome of honor and pride in the family become such object of ridicule and hate? … More Celebration with Reservations

For many married couples, falling in love and saying “I do” was the easy part. Living happily ever after is the part that takes a whole lot of work. I sought out some honest advice from real people who might have insight as to what makes a marriage stand the distance. I reached out to all the married couples and divorcées I knew and asked them the burning question, “What’s the secret to making a marriage successful?” Read their words of wisdom below….
1. Affection breeds more affection. Touch each other, kiss each other good morning, and have plenty of se.x (even when you’re old!). It’s too easy to get out of the habit, which makes you feel distant. Intimacy and physical affection really help keep you connected.
Share everything with each other. Most importantly, everything you are feeling. There is no way to be on common ground if you don’t communicate how you’re feeling.

I was at a friend’s mother’s 60th birthday party some years back and some things were said about the woman. When her husband was called to give a speech about her, he recounted how she was supportive and held the family even when there were times he couldn’t hold the forth. He recounted how she single handedly made sure their children were never out of school at any particular time. She was patient and gentle, never demanding or nagging and I see how tolerating she was, still is. Despite the ups and downs that didn’t seem like were meant for her, she chose to stay happily married. … More …Thin line between patience and weakness…
