Have A Nice Day!

Valentine's Day is finally here. The much awaited day. The much dreaded day. Excited lovers. Heartbroken people. Rich folks. Poor blokes. Valentine's Day impacts every one of us in a different way. And I say time and again. It is not just for the gooey-eyed, drooling, warm-blooded youngsters gushing over the fair-skinned, slender newcomer in college, nor just for those who have 2-carat diamond rings weighing on their ring fingers. It is for all of us who have nurtured love in our hearts at some point and continue to do so today.

With this I would like to wish all of the following a very nice day!

You, who gave birth to me, loved me, accepted my mistakes, forgave me for my foolish acts, and continue to support me everyday.

You, who treat me like your own daughter, without expecting anything from me in return.

You, who taught me, what unconditional love is all about, what selfless love is all about, what sacrifices is all about.

You, who never told me that you love me but ask me in a very concerned way, "Di are you okay?" when you sense I am not my usual self.

You who told me that you want to be just like me..in every way possible, and make me feel respected and loved, each time I talk to you.

You, who text message me randomly after weeks of nothingness to say hi and to make my day.

You, who call me at least once a day just to see how I am doing, no matter what kind of fight we might have had the day before.

You, who never tell me that I am harping on the same subject over and over again, even when I am, and listen to me patiently each time.

You, who sent me sweet, encouraging, and inspiration messages, when you felt that I needed some cheering up!

You, who call me up in the middle of the night, whenever I ask you to, pay a fortune on those long-distance calls, and yet never talk about hanging up, because you know I need you at that time.

You, you, and you.

All of you who make a big difference in my life.

My blogger friends who encourage me to write, my IM friends who encourage me to talk, my psychologist friends who encourage me to take care of my self, my college friends who encourage me to stay young, my school friends who gave me great memories to live with.

My best friends who encourage me to live, and laugh.

Those random strangers who have made life easier for me without having known it. The man who held the door when my hands were full. The man who helped me when I was injured in an accident. The woman who gave me directions when I was lost. The woman who held my hand when I was sick........

Valentine's Day is not about nursing broken hearts, cursing old lovers, pitying one's self, being angry at couples. Its about spreading love.

Have you spread some love today?

Have a nice day, you all!

To you who makes people smile,
And kisses away tears and rue.

Hi Solitaire,
Happy Valentines Day to you and your loved ones. Wonderful words that come straight from your heart. You have truly delivered the message to your beloved. God bless you both.

Sourish Karmakar said...

happy valentines day ..
cute post

Nishanth said...

hey..must say..a beautiful blog.. you have thanked a lot of people.... there are a very few people who thank you for what you have done ( mostly for friends, you are expected to do things without expecting appreciation in return.. usually to learn to accept it..but sometimes you crave for that thank you once in a while)...and your are definitely one of them...

and have a great valentine's day..

Ashu said...

happy valentine day sneha :)

Soham Chakraborty said...

wow yaar !!! gr8 post .... very touching !!

KP! said...

Nicely written!!!

Njoi this day with ur fav ppl......:)

Solitaire said...

OMG!! You all came in like angels to spread the love while I was sleeping! Thank you guys!

HUGS!!!

Will be back to respond to each one of you!

Sunshine said...

Happy Valentine's day to you! Thanks a lot Sneha.. You write the most sweet blogs that make a great start to my day!
*Hugs*

Alok said...

Very nicely written!
Extremely touching.

But I must ask this:
What about your "foes"? Would you love them too?

What about those you haven't met ever? Those who remain neglected in deserts, in slums, in dark alleys?

Why do you work? Is it just for yourself? Isn't working about love?
Maybe Work is Worship because worship is all about love.

P.S. A very happy Valentine's day to you too!

Vandita said...

Happppppy Valentine's Sneha :)

Vinesh said...

rayshma said...

lovely post... :)

Mansi Trivedi said...

Happy Valentines day to you too.. :)

“Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous.”

A sex and the city quote. :)

Cosmic Joy said...

That was a very optimistic and uplifting post :) Happy valentine's day back at ya!

Solitaire said...

@ Rahul, thank you. What are you doing today in the city of dreams?

@ Anjuli, not tonight. Saturday night! You still have time to make it..

@ Ceedy, you too. Keep writing us wonderful stories.

@ Pri, What an anticlimax!

Solitaire said...

@ Maverick, its on Saturday. You are invited!

@ Clouds, so sweet!! Tell me how it turns out! Am glad you are not cussing out your old special someone. Love is love, after all! Whether past or present.

@ Deepti, thanks. To you too!

@ Neetal, neekuben? hahah!! Is Dagwood gujju too? have a nice day!

Solitaire said...

@ Mel, who both? This blog is not dedicated to just one person. Its for one and all! Happy Valentine's Day to you too!

@ Sourish, thanks! Yours was cute too!

@ Nishanth, thank you! I learned a long time ago that my life is nothing with the angels that God has sent along every step up. I never forget to thank them. And God too!

Solitaire said...

@ Ashu, chalo tag khatam karo! Happy V day! Hope it is going well!

@ Soham, thanks! keep visiting!

@ Pavi, no need for a formal invite. Just start driving to Ohio. Party is on Saturday!

@ KP, trying KP..trying! What are you upto? Not much to do in Dayton. How is Columbus?

Solitaire said...

@ Sunshine, you are most welcome! Keep shining!

@ Alok, I would not love anyone who tries to harm me. If a foe is harmless, I might love him. Who knows? About those who I never met, I don't know. I think love grows out of a relationship, out of a bond, some connection. So it's hard for me to imagine loving someone I have never met, unless of course, it is Aamir Khan! And about work? Yes, I do NOT work for myself. I work for others. If I wanted to work for myself, I would have been in a profession where I would be minting money after a bachelor's degree and not making peanuts even after a doctoral degree.

Solitaire said...

@ Vandita, YAY!! That expression and feeling must be priceless!

@ Vinesh, thank you to you too! Keep spreading the love!

@ Rayshma, thanks! You seem to have disappeared? I read your lovely love story. :)

Solitaire said...

@ Mansi, You are freaking me out. I thought those words sounded like me. Am I turning into Carrie Bradshaw? If I am, I hope to be with Mr. Big some day. haha!

Happy Valentine's Day!

@ cosmic, thanks!! happy v day to you and your family too!

Ravi said...

Nice article :)

You're quite an observer and you certainly have a very sharp memory, mam! (I'm referring to the third last para, where you've acknowledged the presence of all those strangers, who've helped you in one way or other)

I'm glad, we still have such people - on this otherwise CRAP world - who acknowledge Masses rather than Classes :)

Take care!

Solitaire said...

@ Ravi, thank you so much. You know what you can do for me in return? Give me more Aamir Khan news to read about.

:: Clouds :: said...

Nopes, will never curse him. :) He enkindled love and made me understand what it was.
Moreover,we were and still are best friends. You know the chaddi buddies type.

Ravi said...

As and when there is any news on Aamir, I would definitely post it, no worries mam :)

Take care!

carolinagal said...

Happy Valentine's Day Sneha!!
Spencer and I are having a little party tonight...just the two of us :)
Have fun at your party!!

Cinderella. said...

Yep...I did.
I'm glad.
You take care.

AnnFrank said...

A great write up. In the clinically hyped days of pink wrappers and red roses, we are perceiving love in just one form. Its great you took this moment to acknowledge all those who have stirred your heart at some point of your life. Behena, just wanna take this moment to thank for being unexpectedly around me through chats, scraps and blogs. Just remember, I for sure do love u :)

Mystery said...

hey..happy valentines to u too :)

great post...very nicely written..
as i was going through some of ur posts...each one of them has a bit of psychology emotion running in it...guess thats wat psychology does to us ;)

Margie said...

Hello Solitaire
I do hope you had a very special Valentine's Day, as your post here was very special!

I had a wonderful day, and did share some love with my family and friends!
It was a lovely day!

I so enjoyed this post, and thanks so much for your visit to my blog.

Take care!

Margie

RADhika said...

Very well said!!!! :))

vitruvian said...

a very happy valentines day to u...
keep spreading the cheer!!

i think we dont really need a valentines day to do that...
whenever I feel genuinely overwhelmed or excessively ambivalent..
i make it a point to let the people in my life know how important they are to me...

KP! said...

hahaha.....not much here either(fixed the sump pump..if u got plumbing skills u r welcome to come over...just kidding)....:). Its just sucks we r not blessed with city like NY or LA......:). I know dayton quite well(every year we come there for MOCL). how was ur party?? write about it!! njoi the long weekend (Presidents’ Day)drink in the "Name of Bush"....lolz

Solitaire said...

@ clouds, glad to know that!

@ Ravi, thank you! you are doing a good job of it!

@ Carolinagal, how was your little party? My party is on the weekend. I just gorged on sushi and watched ratatouille last night! It was so much fun!

@ Cinderella, :)

The Keeper of the Keys said...

Happy Valentines to you too!

Solitaire said...

@ AnnFrank, awww...would never have known until you told me.

@ Mystery, haha! Psychology can make you or it can break you.

@ Margie, you are most welcome Margie. I had a great day too!

@ Keshi, thanks! MWAH back! :)

@ Ghost, you too ghostie!

Solitaire said...

@ Nik, thanks! How was your day?

@ Radhika, thank you!

@ Vitruvian, that's only because your name is Sneha and you are destined to do that!! :)
Not everyone is like you. Many people forget and take it for granted.

@ KP, what is MOCL? Got no plumbing skills. Only some writing skills. And we dont have a long weekend either! :(

strollinthunder said...

Yeah...I have been spreading the fragrance of love for a long time now!

Happy Valentine's day.
