December is here already?

Gosh! Are we already in the last month of the year? When did the rest of the months come by and where did they go? It seems like y’day that I bid adieu to a very distressing 2011 and welcomed 2012 with full of hope for a better tomorrow.

The year didnt disappoint, I can say that for sure :). It has largely been a memorable year for us. And I’m deeply grateful to God for that.

In fact, to be honest, I sort of hoped that this year would move past at a more leisurely pace so I could take in all the positive vibes and joyous moments that the year has had to offer me and my family.

But the year seems to have gone by in a flash! And I haven’t even had the time to let these moments sink in. Or have I? Am I getting greedy? My heart craves for more such moments.

When I think of the tough and draining 2011, I shudder!

Right then I feel blessed when I realize how so beautifully has this year made up for all the depressing times of the previous one.

And now, its that time of the year again when I have the same nagging sense of unsurity slowly creeping inside me.

Am I ready to say goodbye to this year yet?
Can I not hold on to it for some more time?
Will all the good moments lived and cherished in this year be carried forward to the next year?
Will the happiness last for years to come or will it be short-lived?
Will the coming year unfold for us things that we may not have prepared or asked for?

Just when these moping thoughts begin to needle me, my mind drifts away to look for some positivity around. And I realize that I dont have to go very far. Because this also is the time of the year that brings a smile on my face..

for everything looks so beautiful and festive..
for the weather is so nippy, cheering me up every time a soft breeze brushes my cheeks..
for my plants look so happy when they wish me each morning with their freshest blooms…


for I feel ever so kicked up to pick up a book to read..
for I feel ever so driven to scribble something( even if gibberish), to give free passage to the words brewing inside me…

for this so is my favorite time of the year..

For I feel so blessed to be…

  1. Hugs! And let’s hope for many 2012 like years for you and your family. For us, 2012 had been the target year for moving back to India. And as you say its almost over before we knew it. December is such a wonderful time of the year, isnt it? I feel a wee bit depressed when the new year starts:)

    I love that pic! Your flowers are totally blooming! I’ve pruned all my plants, so have only bougainvillea with blooms. I’m itching to go buy a pot with a flowering pot to make up for my dismal balcony garden.


    1. Thank you sweetie! Hugs back to you :).

      And I’m sure 2013 will turn out far better and more memorable than this year for you three, Smits! You be happy and positive πŸ™‚

      As for the flowers, I manage such blooms thanks to the weather which will last only for a few months..come summer and my plants will begin to droop. So making the most of this lovely time of the year πŸ™‚

  3. Sigh I know! 2012 whizzed by and I spent almost half of the year limping πŸ˜› πŸ˜› Am so looking forward to have more fun and good times in 2013 πŸ™‚
    Wishing u a lovely 2013 too Deeps πŸ™‚ Hugs!


    1. Aww hugs Swar! I can imagine how eager you must be to welcome 2013! Hope the coming year bring in loads of happiness and good health for you and Su πŸ™‚


  4. December always comes to soon, doesn’t it? πŸ™‚
    Every year leaves us with memories to cherish and memories which we would like to forget. The cycle never fails to amaze me.


    1. It is amazing indeed, Amit! And this year has largely been about memories that I would cherish all my life and keep coming back to reminisce about πŸ™‚


  5. I am also amazed at the fact that it is already December! This year seems to have just flown by, without my realising it!

    This year has been full of challenges for me – with a mix of good and not-so-good moments. I hope 2013 is better. πŸ™‚ I am also filled with morose thoughts similar to yours as the time for the close of the year draws near. Then, the festive atmosphere brings me back my cheer and happiness. πŸ™‚ This year, though, I haven’t been feeling my usual enthusiasm for Christmas, for any festival, in fact. I hope that changes soon. 😦
