Snap happy :)

Ano tagged me to pick a picture of the year. The rules being:

"All you have to do is select and upload one photo that you have clicked this year (2007) that is special to you. Could be anything…aesthetic, technical or personal. Also, put in a short note why it is special."

I thought a lot about it. First I thought of a picture of the sea. Next I thought of a sunset. But finally this made sense:

Though it sounds cliched, for me, 2007 has been mostly a bed of roses. Yes there were thorns, the major one of them being me leaving my job in January 2007 which caused me some grievance all over the year, but they were all in the background (just like in the pic). Maybe the leaving job thing was for the good as well. After all, my pregnancy was literally work-tensions free :). Secondly the snap somehow points out that Sri and I are not "two" anymore, but are "three" now with Snigdha :).

I hope 2008 will also be the same way. But if there are more thorns than roses, I won't ask God for the thorns not to be there or to take the thorns away, but will pray for the strength to walk on a thorn knowing that its there and knowing that its going to cause pain. Simply put, to make life a rich experience, roses are plain not enough ;-) :).
