april showers and may flowers

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young

Finally, i get the chance to lift up my feet and listen to songs. i am playing this song of Bob Dylan to my kid. :-) Love the lyrics. i am listening to the version sung by Audra Mae from "Sons of Anarchy".
Well, i am not bothered about the bike that i sent home. Bribed every possible person to get the work done. Now, i am thinking even if just the handle reaches home, i will consider my work done.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young

i am staying in a very quiet place in the U.S.almost like the country side. Saw some specks of snow for the first time in my life, like snow dust. It hasn't really snowed this year though. It is very cold outside, but i try to walk daily for sometime to build up stamina. Hubby was scared seeing my size suddenly. Though he is responsible for the size, i understand it will be a shock to see a 10 kg increase suddenly.
May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young

Feel really nice that i could meet my eldest brother. He came down to Bangalore for the first time and helped me wind up. He was very strict when we grew up and i often misunderstood him. This time, i could see my brother in a new light. He is suffering from depression, but he did all he could for his little sister. Took me all over Bangalore to finish all sorts of paper work. Prayers for him! Friends and strangers help you too, and i have relied on that kindness, but sometimes there is a price to pay for the help that you take from people. It gets mentioned in the worst of times as if you don't know they have helped. In the last 6 months, i faced it all. The last 6 months were my weakest, my most vulnerable and also, the strongest. Through tears, frustration, and perseverance, i survived it. Now, as they say i am waiting for April showers and May flowers. (i am due in May)
