A word with you

A word with you on my 200th post! Please check out my very first post here.

Blogging started off as an outlet to express myself enabling me to share my raves and rants with such openness I wouldn't rather express otherwise. But now it has become a part and parcel of my identity. All the credit goes to you, yes, YOU! It was easy connecting with you all as you accepted me the way I am.

Known friends commented I am sharing way too much personal information on my blog, not realizing you guys are the same as they are to me. While most of them do not care about my day to day life, it is you I turn to to share my simplest of joys. When my frequent calls to them go unanswered or attended to in a hurry, you guys come through with your cheering posts and encouraging notes. I get to see them only when I organize a get together; but you guys always have a get together here in the blogosphere and I just have to show up to belong.

My sincere thanks to one and all who make my days a little bit more interesting. Across the many miles; divided by country lines, deepest oceans and tallest mountains, against all odds, you guys have proved to be the best! The best of friends one could ever have! Thank you!

Along the journey, I could have offended a few though I tried not to. It is hard to explain I didn't mean to, but please accept my apologies if I hurt you. I must add I have been influenced by many and been influential to some; isn't that something?!

As an *NRIGirl I relate to all *NRI's living outside of our Home - INDIA! No matter where we go, how we live, what we do, we are family! My sincere desire is to be back home; may be not today, but sure  someday...

This post and this blog is dedicated to every reader who represents these dots on my map... Let me thank you just once again - Thank you!

*NRI - Non Resident Indian

NRIGirl,

Congratulations on 200th post. Wow. That is amazing. I think we started blogging around the same time and I far far behind you. No where close to 200. But that is because I have been giving you all my ideas :))))

Keep moving forward.
