Heartfelt Thanks ....

This post is to say two small but hearfelt words .... " Thank You "!!

( The cookie snap is from my draft. I'll make a proper post on it later. )

Since I usually do not write much about my family ... except for some trivial things in passing, I did not write the reason for my break in my last post.

As a result a lot of people, in all innocence, have wished me a 'happy break'. So I mentioned in just one line the reason for my break in the comment section .... i.e. the other half is ill.

And was overwhelmed at the response!

So many people wrote to me .... wishing me luck .... boosting morale .... saying encouraging words!! People from the blogging world, people I know personally, people I do not know at all ... everybody.

I had no idea so many people followed my blog so closely!

And the lurkers ... never again shall I crib about lurkers not leaving a line on my posts. So many of them wrote to me wishing me everything well !!

I sincerely thank all of you who have bothered to write, chat and call in this trying time. It really helps a lot to know there are people out there thinking of you when you are in difficulty.

Thank you so much for your warm words and prayers and for giving me so much courage!!

It is really unfortunate the way the city is under seige ... the swine flu scare is all over ... which is keeping us out of hospitals ... inspite of a required surgery in the offing.

So many innocent and ignorant people struggling to find a hold on this health scare. So many children ill or dead.

Life looks dreary and grey and dull. My writing is haphazard ... I have a thousand thoughts in my mind .... yet can't write properly.

Here's hoping for a better day soon. Till then ... take care all. And thanks again, dear friends .... just for being there with a kind word.

That's all that is needed in these trying times.
