Friday Musings!

The past few days I have been meeting several women for work and outside of work. I have admired some and have been inspired by some. And then there have been others who have made me think. Think about how much they value themselves, what kind of mindsets they have and what kind of men they've "chosen" to fall in love.It also made me realize the worth of the person I got married to.

I am thankful : 
  • that I married a man who supports his wife in everything she does & wants to do ( even if its highly irrational, at times :))
  • that I married a man who considers his wife worthy of discussing everything under the sun and takes decisions with her and not tells her (unlike some who go around saying " inhone kaha hai", A very north Indian phrase which essentially means because he said so)
  • that I married a man who wouldn't have been a " little bit more happier" had we had a son instead of Sara ( hell! he/we wanted a girl so so so badly:), well because they are...mmm...just so cute, a little boy would have made us equally happy)
  • that I married a man who doesn't believe in cautiously falling in love; with caste/ religion/region in mind ( he married me! oh, hang on..I proposed him...so well I married him:))
  • that I married a man who feels giving his partner her space/time to pursue her own interests or to meet her girlfriends without him is very important ( unlike some who "don't get the permission" to do so or "can't stay without their wives for a day")
Ah! there I have said it all and I feel much lighter. And DH if you happen to read this, this should be good enough for many many years:) 

I am loving : 
  • This quote I recently came across. For all the wonderful men (and women) in our lives. For you DH.

Prachi,

You are so right. I am surprised to know that about 80% of the women around us are like these "Strange" women who don't value themselves and feel that the house is better run by "Men".

I am glad we got wonderful husbands who do not take any (no matter big or small) decision without consulting us.

Ladies...Mr. Purple has been asking me, will this be the name he will be known by :) Me likey...so he has no choice but to agree :)

Actually this post was written because i was mad at the so many "educated" women i had met in the last one week or so and I am happy it came out like this...brownie points from the husband...he he..
