Here goes the month of August 2014, the 7th of the count-down towards our anniversary:
August brought another family function and this time, there was more drama in the air. It was your uncle’s 60th and there was a grand celebration for that. This time I met a lot of relatives from your maternal side and again the routine of introductions, questions about kids and the future and all that jazz happened. We also met the fiancée of our best friend, had a good time getting to know her and taking her out for dinner. That’s when I realized we were doing grown up stuff like having people over and playing host. We were doing a lot of it already but the realization sunk in August. Was it just me? Or did you feel so too?
We had this big festival ‘Varalakshmi Vratham’ in August and I was a newbie to that too. We had a different version of the same thing in December in my family. I was really unable to fast till the pooja but thankfully with your aunt’s guidance, we finished it earlier than it would have been otherwise.
Then came along the biggest surprise of all. The call for my job change. I had switched companies too often (both by choice and by destiny) and was in no idea of switching again at that time. But this call was my dream job. I had been trying to nail it ever since I finished college but it didn’t work out because they were looking for more experienced candidates then. Now that I had the required the experience & an opportunity came along and I was so torn. I knew that switching again would put a dent on my resume in case of stability but I also knew I would never forgive myself if I let this chance pass by. After a lot of discussions and encouragement from you, I decided to go for it. In the coming months, everything worked out well. I can’t thank you enough for all the support you gave me, all the reassurances when I felt low.
So August marked the beginning of another ride that was about to start, just that we didn’t know it yet 😉
And did I tell you? I love you 😉
Until later 🙂
