My last post was Nov 18th, 2014! More than a year back! Yet it seems crazy to think that I haven't done this for over a year. To stop writing, expressing, taking photos, sharing, so silly to stop doing what you love. Ya, ya, time is short, life is busy, but that's really it isn't it. Life is so short that one needs to only do the things have give us happiness, that satisfy us and make us smile. It could be something as small as a cup of steaming coffee or a bougainvillea bloom, or tickling a baby, but one must do something soul satisfying every single day.

I see my daughters growing up so fast. Like in the blink of an eye fast. Racing to become taller, faster and more independent, and all I really want to teach them is to be happy. Even when things are not going right, even when you make mistakes, even when you actually want to cry. Its hard getting my point across but the elder one at 5 and a half is seeing it. She says, mama, this is life right, to make mistakes, to laugh when you drop something on the floor, to hug, to kiss. She amazes me. And my little one echoes her!

This one was taken in late May 2015. One of those moments where they stop and stare just for a moment, and then they are back to monkeying around!
