Time flies ? - Time you love and like is the only time flies !!

Eyes are the mirror of reason and love, and that in their expression can be revealed much without a word spoken!!

When you feel emotional, you express your emotions differently…. by sharing with friends or sharing with family, Some people just express their feelings with themselves. !! Imagine, when you are driving your car and thinking for someone and in next minute, you cannot stop your eyes getting wet.... is your LOVE for the person. But you gotta make sure that you don't show your wet eyes and pretend yourself with lots of energy, strength, positives and confidence. I firmly believe that smile we sent will always return. Of course, There will always be few exceptions but we generally ignore them and move on ;) 



I have been telling Lisa many times in last few months that "Time really flies" by watching Aarav grow. But I would admit that it's not always true... The time you love and like are the only time flies fast !!

A real pillar of my strength, my DAD’s thoughts, always inspiring me for many things in life, One of it was "લાઇફ મા તડકો અને છાયો આવયા કરે" which means, Sunlight (Happy time) and Dark (Painful time) are part of life. You cannot avoid or stop them,  They are under control of thousands of factors, some are under your control while many are not !! So accept it and move on…. Just be grateful for the positives! He even today keep telling us.. “Two ways you can pass your time, with a smile on your face or with tears in your eyes…” Choose smile because smile you sent will always return.. you don’t want to send tears and expect it in return.. .!! A very nice and short lesson but very difficult to implement in life. Thank you, Dad for teaching us such an important lesson of life and it always helps us pass time with smile no matter how bad it is!! I am sure, Aarav will learn the same when he grow up.

The World is full of feelings and surprises and everyone tries to express their part, in a different ways though..! One can never predict next minute… But what I feel is, every minute gives us an opportunity to express our feelings and be grateful for the positives but mostly we misses these opportunities.

Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder!

Love you,

Ready.. Steady.. Go.. ! Have fun Kids !





video


Remember this kids… ? Last summer all together… nice sunny day, on pacific beach… you all buddies had lots of fun. I know this post probably does not make sense for any one of you, little dudes (Aarav, Rian, Akshat, Naitik) Well, I will wait for the day when anyone of you read this blog and reply to this post with your thoughts…!! Excited and will wait for that day..! Here is what I have to say on days like these we spend together.

It has been an almost more than a year you guys have spent time together as buddies. We all know time flies… and you all are one year older. You all enjoyed each other’s birthday parties here in San Diego... I was scrubbing through photo memories of you all and I saw individual's birthday party pictures and I must say “You all rocks”. I have hundreds of pictures from those parties, don’t want to share those here otherwise one day google will ask me to stop writing blogs and posting pictures ;) Make sure you ask your parents for those pictures and I will make sure to share those with them. I have lots of thoughts in my mind and would like to share few of them with you, BTW, these are my observations while watching you all grow :) :)

Naitik, You are a group “leader” and keep asking others to follow on what you would like others to do. That’s a nice quality and keep that up in life. Your imagination is great... and you remember things very well. How can I forget “making a toy house” project with you at my home. I promised you to make a toy house from boxes and I still hold that promise, we will do that once you are back from your India trip. God bless you, little monitor!

Rian, You are a silent fearless master. You don’t care much, especially you are given a CARs..  One of the big fan of CARs... (Parents beware.. J) Good quality of yours is you are a fearless dude, don’t worry about things, no matter what happens, just be busy with your things. You are more flexible and can be adjusted with others easily. I know you just had your first day of school and I am pretty much sure you had a nice time there J. Fearless master, God bless you!

Akshat, you are a shout little master, I think one of the loudest voice from 4 of you and enough loud to tell others don’t underestimate me ;) Well, you are youngest in four but equal capable of dealing with them. We see you growing great with your 3 other buddies. How can I forget you and Aarav took care of each other very well. If Aarav is at your home or you are at our home, in any case, you both does not want to stop playing together. Caring for but never trying to own may be a future way to define friendship!

Aarav, you are a little dance master, You love music and you enjoy at its best. This is something we have been observing since last 2 years! Prove me, right Dady's dude.. I love music too and I would like you to learn at least one instrument and enjoy your life with music and dance. You remember things very well. Like all other parents, I also have thousands of things in mind where you made us surprised by remembering few things which we couldn't. Like others, you also have many things unique… If someone asks me to tell the difference you have vs 3 others? well, Only difference I could think of is “You are Daddy’s little master” while others are Mostly Mumma’s !! J I don’t want you to prove me wrong in this case…! Love you all!

Okay, guys... So these are just a few things, I thought of writing for you all and wish you all have fun in future. Enjoy life wherever you all may be. Have fun!



There has never been, nor will there ever be anything quite so special as the love between you and us, kids !! Life is yours, Enjoy at its best!

Love you all,

LisAnk-Aarav
