A Blessed Month

There are phases in your life which make you wonder if you would ever be able to get past through unharmed...

I remember sending frantic messages to my sister last year telling her desperately why I thought I wasn't marriage material. I couldn't find peace anywhere from anyone and I thought the best place to find the comfort I was looking for could only come from me! I stayed aloof for a pretty long time because I didn't want to hurt anyone and most importantly I didn't want to end up hurting myself. Funny how things turned around this year...

Now, at least I am not as hopeless as I used to be. Marriage doesn't scare me anymore. I am not even scared how it would turn out after marriage (due to happen later this year) coz I believe I have met the most patient and understanding man ever possible. I have now realised that soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you. They are not perfect but are always perfect for you.

I have no idea if my platinum day of love had come and gone without me knowing about it but I can't stop gushing....

... when he calls up after having a fight and throws dialogues like these :

R : Busy ?

Me : Uh huh.. what happened now ?

R : Wanted to hear your stupid voice...

Me (Irritated) : Huh ?

R : Kidding! Just called to say that I accept you with all your mood swings, tantrums and frustrations. Love you...

... when he mingles with my family as if they are his own.

... when he buys popcorn, eats more than half of it himself and then turns to me apologetically saying 'Oops! I was hungry'.

... when he throws tantrums and goes kiddish with a 'I won't talk to you again! Nobody cares for me!' but calls me back after an hour or two with a 'So wassup?'

... when he gushes and goes all wide eyed, happy and cheerful when he sees me making me feel as if I am the most beautiful person in this world.

I feel if R and I had met somewhere outside this whole arranged prospective bride/groom meeting, we would have still fallen in love and got married eventually. I don't think anybody else could have handled the volatile me in a better way nor would he have been able to feel so vehemently about anyone else.

Who said Pyaar is Impossible in an arranged marriage?

It has been a blessed month so far -

Feb 7th - My engagement day

Feb 14th - Got my first engagement gift from R - a White Gold ring. I decided to break the ice then and gave him a tight hug. He was quite surprised by this (who said men had to take the first step?) but it did leave him with a huge grin!

Feb 16th - My Nephew was born - Yadharth! Babies are such sweethearts. You can't help falling for them the moment they are born -- those cute expressions, smiles, the gurgles and Yadharth to top it all mistakes my nose for his feeding bottle!

I am in Dubai now enjoying with my sister, family and R! The later part of this month would see me flying off to the place I was born and brought up - Bahrain - for a quick visit. Won't be around for few weeks. Till then, have a more blessed month than me! :)

Opposites Attract?

- He is a non-stop chatterbox. I need my moments of silence.

- He can have non-veg for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I prefer to have it only now and then.

- He hates reading. I love it!

- He goes out of his way to please me. I am more laidback.

- He seems jovial always. I have my mood swings.

I am not the easiest of person to get along with. There were times when I wondered if I should even consider marriage considering the type of person I am -- moody, easily irritated and frustrated, quite spoilt even! But as luck would have it, I have found someone who can deal with my tantrums, my mood swings... in short, a person who can deal with me being ME!

People tell me that the best time is before marriage (during the courtship period) and that after marriage, it's not the same. I think it will be the opposite for R & I. Touch wood.

P.S : I got engaged on the 7th of this month :)

I have time to upload just one pic on blogger. That's me on my engagement day, posing as never before ;)

Special love to Madhuri, Richa and Annie for making me feel so special on my special day !! :)
