Ode to my Angel


I still remember the day, brother and me waiting impatiently for amma who finally entered the house with a white bundle, carefully wrapped.
She lay there calm and quiet in amma's warmth. The joyous moment, of welcoming the bundle of joy with soft kisses on the rosy cheeks...




The first words she uttered, the first songs she hummed, while still a baby, in the cradle!

The day she first laid her tender feet on the earth, the baby talks, cheers and laughter, lighting up the family..

Her tender hands gripping my fingers tight, on the way to the play school for her very first day,
wide open eyes staring at her toddler mates who wailed the whole day,
yet I could see her getting along in a pleasant way!

The mind blowing performance presented for the school annual day,
applauds, appraises, the best child of the school, making us proud of our little angel...

Wonderful school girl and a tender teen when I found a friend in her.. movies, music, gossips, games..

Our baby grew yet again and it was soon time for those silent prayers while moving out of town for good; to work, to attain greater heights...

The soul which introduced me to this wonderful world of blogging!

The days she confided on me; when she found her first love and talked to me endlessly..the confidence while talking her heart out to my parents...

Showers of blessings, the day she got married...happy moments those bounced back whenever she came home or together on an exotic trip, the face that beams with her charming prince, TH..:)

The rare times we fought and competed, bitterness forgiven the next minute, pushing away the sisterly grudges..

The endless unconditional love which supports my children...
........
.....

my baby, my sister, my diamond!!




Jayasri, at last you made my eyes brim...;)
and now I am supposed to post the recipes which I followed from hers, for the Bloggers Marathon event, right? 


Thella pulusu, the mildly spiced coconut curry, she craves..



Ghee fried bananas, the simple snack she loved as a kid and her all time favourite.


P.S - Sis, get ready to 'gift' me the new dslr  right back, from US.  *wicked laugh*
