An Era’s End

Yesterday marked an end for a big chapter in Uzair’s life!

As it was his very last day in his pre-school. After spending about 3 years over there and getting his very first basic knowledge about life’s basics, he is ready to step into the primary section of his educational life. He said good-bye to his teachers and met his classmates.

I’m feeling little sad about this because last 3 years in that pre-school, he learned so much about not just basic education but also about interacting with people outside home. He made his very first friends in school, about whom he told me almost everyday in past 3 years. The school lunch hour and playing in the playarea were his favorite. He even loved to share his home made lunch with his friends in school, which is a very good thing.

And he also loved learning about the basics like alphabets, numbers, shapes, colors and so much more. And showing me acheiving full marks in a class test, when I would return back home from work, was his favorite thing to do. I never stopped wondering about how Uzair spent his day in school, doing his classwork or playing with his friends. I wondered about this so many times and dearly wished to capture his activities on video but that never happened. This makes me sad.

Three years ago, I wrote the post you can read below about Uzair’s first day in pre-school and now, I’m writing about his last day.

Time surely flies so fast and it takes away so much from us. But on the other hand, it also gives us moments to cherish about for the rest of our lives.

Re-blog: Gifts from Blogging

The world is full of amazing people and I found so many of them through blogging 🙂

Out an' About

Roses are red, violets are blue, today’s my birthday but the gifts are for you.

Make a wish 

I’m 53 years old young today. Hip, hip, hooray, where have the years gone?  I still feel 21. Yep, except my need for reading glasses, dodgy memory and aching bones tells me otherwise. Falling off a bike recently didn’t help either.

However, I’ve never felt more blessed and passionate about life than I do right now. I’m grateful for every single day and my heart, mind and eyes are wide open. To a degree, blogging has played a huge part in that.

I started back in 2015, the February before I turned 50, the year before I lost my mum and my life changed forever.

As I write this (a few days before my birthday) I reflect on…
