Madhu, so deeply sorry to read your latest post and hear the tragic news if your family’s loss. I too have had a very hard year with my dad battling cancer and 2014 will be really up in the air as we don’t know what the outcome will be. But I remember to follow the belief that every day on this planet is a gift and that is why it is calle the present. Sending my thoughts and hugs your way.
Happiness and joy … should be something all children brings to us, but not all children are welcome.

Two very lucky boys. It’s no wonder they are very happy. They have a million reason to smile. 😀
