Have spent a wonderful week catching up with close family. One of my courses got rescheduled, so I suddenly had an entire week off, which coincided with Raksha Bandhan, my sister’s birthday as well as my dad’s b’day.
Rakhi was spent with Tina’s clan; her brother, sister and parents came over for lunch and she cooked up a storm! We spent most of our time eating, gossiping and laughing, and then rushed over to my sister’s place for my rakhis (my 2 rakhi sisters had also mailed their rakhis across) My sister, incidentally is pregnant and due on Dussehra day!
Next day was dinner with my sister and her in-laws, and y’day was with my parents again. It’s a blessing to have a close-knit and understanding family; and by Guruji’s grace they too appreciate all that Tina and I do with our “unconventional” professions and lifestyles 🙂
This morning, we awoke early and waited for a phone call, as though it was a world cup final match result; my dear rakhi sister Ritu called us just before being wheeled into the OT, and then shortly after her excited hubby Gaurav called to share that they had a baby girl!! Yayyyy, subah ho gayi mamu! And yes, that’s her right there 🙂
Ritu is the older sister of Amit (whose wedding with Ritika we attended recently)
So as you can see, this week has been a totally domesticated one, and full of smiles, laughter and blessings. Thank you, Guruji.
