Missing in Action

Hello lovelies! I am not one to go MIA without dropping a note, so you must be wondering what happened and where are all the lovely sparkle posts I had promised for this week?

Life is unpredictable, and sometimes you go through a phase where you experience highs and lows simultaneously. I am moving roles (within the same organization) and will be working with a new team starting January. So this last week, my team threw me a wonderful farewell lunch, showered me with thoughtful gifts which brought a tear to my eye and made me feel so special and loved. I am touched to have such wonderful people in my life and grateful for all their blessings and support. This last week I also lost one of my maternal grandmothers. She was ailing for a while and I know she is in a better place now, but it is still tough to lose someone you love. She had a big, kind heart and was always full of tremendous love and care. I am close to all my grandparents and I find it difficult to reconcile with their loss. Four years ago, I lost both my maternal and paternal grandfathers, and it took me a while to get used to their absence. But life goes on and we have to move with it. I hope her soul rests in peace and she is happy and smiling wherever she is right now.

This is life – throwing you a curveball when you least expect it, sending sunshine and thunderstorms all at the same time and moving so fast that you have no option but to run along with it. So seize each day, spend time with your loved ones and make the most of what you have in your hands right now.
