I am such a blessed person, surrounded by so much love & laughter that post stroke life also feels great. My mom used to tell me when I was young that even though I was accidental child I always got best in life, which includes great education & resources to do well. Even though got hand me down clothes & books I did well since I was surrounded by lot of love by family. I am most fortunate in my hubby & his side of family. My life partner was picked by my family. at that age my only requirement was that he must be more educated than me & financially independent, I am so lucky, not only he fulfilled that requirement, but also belonged to amazingly loving family who I love & adore & I got to spend more time with them after our marriage due to my visa issues. Boy when I was going through that waiting period in India with my in-laws it was so painful at that time. but now looking back it was one of the best period of my life. I had such a great time with all of them. I am closer to hubby's family in India more than he is since he is out of country for more than 2 decades. Anyways finally my brother-in-law & sister in-law visited us for few weeks & we had great time together, not only took them everywhere for sightseeing, but also had engagement party of my nephew who is doing his post graduation in US at our house. Engagement party was blast. looking at new lovebirds brings back so many joyful memories of youth I am still reminiscing those days.
