    nithya,

    i loved the concept….i thought of writing it to remind me we have so much to be thankful for, to read at times when we feel like cribbing about something that did not work out well….

    no dear, i yet haven’t had the privilege of being a mom bestowed on me. i just thanked god for giving me a chance to be one by making me a woman…:-)
