Incidentally this is my 100th post on WordPress. Am happy today.
I decided to celebrate it by mentioning a few of the recognitions I have not yet acknowledged by my fellow bloggers.
A few words about my journey so far. I used to love words from childhood – an avid reader, I did not write more than the occasional contribution to the school magazine or a poem about my friends or people I liked or loved on their special days. I did win a poetry competition held in my Medical college hostel day Celebrations. Other than these elementary steps, I did not “write”. But I loved putting my thoughts to paper, be they in the form of letters to my family and friends or diaries that all young girls love to maintain.
This blog was born out of a desire to focus on something to keep my thoughts and mind under control and maybe allow expression – an outlet for the hundreds of thoughts that find their way into my mind. As I took those tentative steps, I found it brought me joy and a balance in my life. As I read and understood others thoughts, I understood myself even more.
As the tempo of interaction increased, so did the frequency of blogging – my own little corner of the blogosphere became a place where I was welcomed and appreciated which warmed my heart. And so as I say thank you to the wonderful people who have nominated me for the awards, I also want to say a heartfelt thanks to the WordPress community and my friends. I just crossed 1337 likes, 200 followers and 100 posts.
So , I would say thank you for the words the posts I am writing and the poems I am posting. all of you have my made my life that much more interesting and that much happier as well . Here’s a JUMBO thanks … for all the support, appreciation, encouragement and acceptance.

My next benefactor is someone I did not much about except for enjoying her posts on Pocketful of joy
( http://faithhopeloveequalsjoy.wordpress.com/about ) Till I read her About page and realized what an honor to connect with someone who has seen life from up close, too close for comfort in fact and yet emerged a stronger woman – an amazing woman I can’t help but admire. Thank you. I accept your nomination in the same spirit that it has been given . Honored. http://faithhopeloveequalsjoy.wordpress.com/2014/11/18/liebster-award-nomination/ Though I have already been nominated twice before for this lovely award.
Megan Elizabeth http://megselizabeth86.wordpress.com/about/ who nominated me for the lovely Blog Award comes across as a strong willed “sassy” woman who knows her mind and expresses it, too. she writes on a myriad of topics and is fun and thought provoking to read. Do check out her blog. Thank you Megan and I hope our interaction on these pages will continue. http://megselizabeth86.wordpress.com/2014/11/04/one-lovely-blog-award/
