99 Things that Make Me Feel Alive! #FridayReflections

I am a magnet for work. When I take a break from my office, I think that I would actually “take a break,” but I end up taking up several assignments of my own to pass the time. Before you know it, I am up to my ears buried in these DIY projects. Anyways, this habit would not go without a war; however, this time, when I saw #FridayReflections prompt, I knew I have to make time for its prompt: Write a 99 Love List. Truthfully speaking, I am not sure if I can think of 99 things that I love, but I’ll take this challenge. Perhaps along the way, I’ll find new reasons to treasure my life. So, here it goes:

  1. God – I love him. I have issues with him, but that’s between me and him. Irrespective of all his funny games, I respect and cherish him.
  2. My Mom – She is a rockstar and my role model. There is nothing that she can’t do. She carries herself in a better way than I do, and she does not allow hardships to get the best of herself.
  3. My Dad – He is a man of few words, and he knows the value of family. My dad has devoted all his life to the welfare of his family and has always equipped us with the latest gadgets before we asked for (Needless to say, his gifts are not the only reason for my love for him).
  4. My Sister – She is a mischievous drama queen who knows how to add a little sunshine in even the gloomiest circumstances. I adore her.
  5. My Husband – It’s been only three years in our relationship, but I have learned the real meaning of love from him. He is the backbone of our marriage, and he knows the importance of showering a spouse with care, love, and undivided attention. Of course, he has his flaws that make me want to shout at him all day long, but these surface very rarely.
  6. My Kids (Pets) – I do not like calling my pets as “pets.” Instead, I call them my kids: Honey, Romeo (named because he was born on valentine’s day, cute right!), Mishty, Lily, Laddoo, and Burfi. Their selfless love acts as an eye opener on several occasions. They are innocent, loving, cute fur balls, and I could snuggle with them all my life.
  7. My Grandfather – He is not alive anymore, but his memories continue to feel me loved and blessed. I love him and miss him. I wish I could turn back the clock, and let him know that a life without him would be very tough.

I am dedicating this post to my sweetheart Romeo, who died while I was at the end of writing this post. My mom called me to inform about it, and she was in tears. He was suffering very badly since the last couple of days, but today, his body gave up. I wish his soul rest in peace 🙁 I am sorry to end this positive post on a tragic note, but I could not resist writing about his death. I think deaths are a reminder of the little control that we hold in life. Then why do some of us spend it in meaningless search of power? All we can do is love and hope that our loved ones would stick with us till the end.

    Oh I’m so sorry to hear about Romeo 🙁 I agree that pets are like family — they are like children and need love and care like kids do, if not more. And they love us back a whole lot more! I hope Romeo is happy where he is.

    Lovely list by the way to make you feel alive.

    1. Thanks, Sanch for your kind words. Getting the news of his sad demise while I was writing the post on feeling alive was quite ironical, he always picked great moments to surprise us.
