Ice storm!!

My first encounter with snow was when i was 11 years old.. We had gone to Gangtok, Sikkim on a vacation and had witnessed the snow capped mountain peaks of the khanchanjzonga..
oh how the tip of the mountain glazed in the sunlight...
But another day it was all very gloomy n cloudy.. I wanted to go n touch snow.. go n stand by the base n look at the top with my neck stretched wide.. (i somehow like doing that.. did that recently to the tall buildings in downtown..) but i was forbidden from going there into the snow..it seems the lake was frozen with an ice crust on the top and was vulnerable to break any time..But there were ppl going..on horses, by walk.. none of us went for i am a person with many constraints.. in many situations adjustment has been my best buddy..
The simple pleasures in life always made me happy.. the rain, the beach n the snow... i am waiting eagerly to get to touch n play in snow.. though i know the cold will be severe.. may be from the Enid Blyton books i read as a girl where they always played with snowmen n snow balls.. n hey talking of snow ball, it reminds me that it was the name of my favourite ice-cream parlour in cochin too..N happens to be adjacent to the auditorium where i got married :)
coming back to snow, for the past 2 days the temperatures are freezing here...
n today has not been a gud day 4 us.. We received a bad news early in the morning..
n there is ice everywhere.. we need to break the ice...
I'm just scribbling down my random thoughts.. But oh my dear readers, we r in need of your prayers...there is some shortage of time n luck n that unknown force needs to click.. life has never been a bed of flowers for me, for hospital beds scare me.. i am sorry this is not a very positive blog.. but this is me.. a glimpse of me!!!

I know what you mean and i know what you have been through--But I guess only when a person knows you well, will they understand what you are trying to say.

Yes,who can forget snow ball?!!(Remember--I used to go there too)And simple pleasure of life make me very happy too.

I too know what you are trying to say here. Adjustments, constraints and bad days are there in everyone's life. But its how you get up and act after the fall that makes all the difference. :)
