Ok, so here I start again. The thing I missed the most- writing. Phew!!!
Lot of my friends asked me whether I will blog again or I have dropped the idea. I used to tell them I would once I get time to rewind and relax.
Today after 6 long months of maternity break I am almost back to my old routine and the topic I chose to write today is related to Friendship and dedicated to a special group of people who I made friends during the beautiful phase of pregnancy.
Pregnancy is not really easy and the more difficult part is parenting. Its the phase in which you have all the apprehensions and doubts, silly questions in your mind, fear, excitement and dilemma surrounding day in and day out and to solve all this who can be your best companion? Of course, your better half, your family are the biggest support. But I consider myself lucky to be part of a group with six other beautiful ladies who were also passing through the same phase.
A different experience altogether. A unique group which started on whatsapp with a mere intention of solving queries on medicals , doctors and scans related during pregnancy has now evolved in sharing joys, happiness, celebrations, complaints and problems.
We are seven ladies who became “Lucky Moms” (As the group name goes)all in Dec or Jan or early Feb. We discuss everything from babies to recipes to dresses to movies to interiors and decor. Thanks to Whatsapp .
I used to feel how digital our life has become but besides several disadvantages this one is a blessing because I always have six people around me to share and resolve my queries, with whom I share my happiness when my kid completes a month or I buy a new dress for her. Who I know will appreciate to my first attempt of cooking a dish, will support me in prayers and wishes if I ever have a problem, who have helped me in finding day care and nanny services and the list is never ending.A group who inspired each of us through their different life experiences. The beauty of the group doesn’t end here. We are diverse from South to North, from different cultural and religious background, we celebrate everything from monthly birthdays to anniversaries to festivals from Eid and Diwali to Christmas. This group has become like an extended family to me.
The 7 gorgeous ladies Gomz, Sumi, Shanu, Omi, Wasi , Ash and of course me would have never met otherwise if our kids would not have been there. So Thanks to all little munchkins who unknowingly connected us into this beautiful bond which we all want to continue lifelong.
I always liked the idea of having a pen friend. It is working out now for me, as till date we have never met in person but we are planning to meet soon.
Thanks to all you people, that I never felt alone in any of my experiences of motherhood. I know where to turn when I am confused if my little one is cranky or if I have to try a new recipe on a free day. You people have added a unique unforgettable lifetime experience in my journey of becoming a mother and yes we are and we will be friends for lifetime.
Cheers to this new, unique friendship and Cheers to motherhood!!!
Like someone rightly said-“Good friends are like stars, you don’t always see them but you know they are always there!”
