i hope i did not say something inappropriate here that was not my intention.....
i jus loved your tribute. god bless your family and keep you happy always
dearest viju..... :-) it has been way too long since i have been here, i have had kind of a tough few days.....lol and i needed a boost so i thought viju!!!... my energy has returned thanks to you.......
appa happy birthday !!~~~~~!!!. appa sounds gr8 and i have read you enought to know that you are gr8 viju... yet you are a handful, a delightful one but still a handful.....hehehe. you know it and so does appa and anyone else who rubs shoulders with you. perhaps it is the teacher in you that likes to challenge. i think what is nice is that you do challenge people, it is in a fun way but i can just imagine the gossip your actions provided for the neighborhood ladies.
over time your charm and wit win everyone over but sometimes the initial shock may rock them back.... including appa. now for the q....
relationships are built with time and experiences, rarely are they just full blown to begin with. a father inlaw i think needs to make sure that a daughter inlaw has the character and fortitude to last and grow just as with any great friend. no one starts out being grest friends, that is something that is earned over time. often we love someone but may not like them, love is unconditional and like is by choice. outside of romantic love for me those i love i love forever, even if it falls apart. for me love is simply wishing the best for that person forever no matter what happens. romantic love for me is much the same for me personally however, this is not the case for most people.
appa and you from my cheap seats like, respect and love one another.. but at the end of the day like is the most important of these emotions, followed by respect and lastly love. as much as you joke, i bet appa may even like you more than his son... and while like in my book has degrees, love does not.
both of you are lucky and blessed to have each other... for me i am proud to have you as my friend.... you see viju you are the best kind of daughter... one with brains, devotion, committment and despite all of this you are fun. hugs and i bend to touch appa's feet... ( i think that is what i am suppose to do... lol) ... ahhh these americans.... pfft
this was a real heartfelt tribute to yout fil, or rather, your appa. really liked it.
how is life? when are you planning to visit india?
through ur blog, i can see what a lovable person u urself are,dear friend. such a lovable post!
phew that was some brown noser prose.. now world over “spring cleaning” is supposed to be a big deal. there is a mythology about opening the windows and airing out the house as the weather warm and getting rid of all the old and stale stuff. i hope this was one of that..
if he is reading he wud double the hits and treble the photocopy to distribute ms verbose verbal diarrhea… i don’t think that blah blah blah prose will sit well with her mother in law who will turn into a outlaw.. as for her hubby if he is still in
hi viju.....you have so nice shown us the gradual transformation of a fil to a father. although this can really happen somehow people mentally block themselves into thinking so with the excuse that all inlaws can never come close to blood relations....but even i had a wonderful mil and still have a wonderful fil....usually the comfort level between two peole reflects the healthy or unhealthy relationship. good one, really! although its too late to wish him a happy birthday, here's wishing him (and you of course) a happy new year!
liked reading your article. nice tribute to a father in law on his birthday. more than anything i like the way he encourages you to write..that is simply fantastic - s.uma
