    Good one Parul.

    We do need to define time for ourselves.

    Hi Rupa,

    Yes, we do need time for self to maintain santity. Actually, I get very cranky if I don't find it. And my DH reminds me that I need a break :)


    Hi sriniketan
    Thanks for you encouraging word. I will keep sharing whenever I come across a worth while artical or incident.

    By the way, would you know how can I remove junk that appears instead of blank lines.

    Hey, a good reminder on the little things in life that matter so much, when all we can do is run away from these real little things to the so called big things in life !

    This post was thought provoking. We should live life as if there is no tomorrow. Think of tomorrow, but do not live for it. Today is our day, the music can be over anytime. A very good lesson indeed.
