Ode to FRIENDSHIP - Dont miss to read this:)

My apologies, if you are expecting a poem on friendship. I thought of writing this, along with my recipe post tomorrow, but it is something special, so wanted to mention and share my feelings now itself :)

I just entered home after my evening work-outs, I saw comment from Suhee, that I got an award.... I just went and saw it and was SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy. I dont have words to express my feelings.... Its something near to my heart.



Yes, she has given me this 'AWARD of FRIENDSHIP'. I haven't thanked her, but wanted to thank her BIG here:)

Thank you so much Suhee, it meant a LOT to me..... Trust me!!!!!

Now, I have to pass this to my blog friends..... I am little confused and afraid of mentioning the names here, because I got sssssssssssssooooooooooooo many friends now. But wanted to honour a very few, who are very near to my heart in some way.

So others, please please please DONT MISTAKE ME......

Jil Jil
She is my blog friend as well as my very close friend, someone with whom I can share anything, which I am doing now;) Thanks Jil Jil, for being so attentive to me!!!!

Srilekha
She sent 'friend request' to me in Greatcooks blogroll. I went and saw her blog, she had wonderful collection of recipes..... the ones which I miss from my home in India. She started visiting me everyday and started writing personal emails too.... She is too innocent and was asking me one day, how to get the awards. I was really touched and told her the ways..... I am very HAPPY for her that she is getting awards every week:) Thanks Sri for accepting as your friend!!!!

Priyanka
I met her first in orkut. I was really surprised to see her blogging everyday with wonderful recipes, that too having a cute little son. Apart from cooking, she does fabric painting, very creative..... I was amazed of her time management:) And she is the one, who gave my first award, so I can never forget her. When I met her in the Foodies meet...... more than her, I liked her little son, Advay;) .... dont get angry ;)..... Thanks Priyanka:) and I will miss you and Advay from October:(

Lakshmi
I met her too in orkut. She invited me to join in the food contest. It started and when I met her in the meet, I felt that she resembles one of my school friend. I felt very comfortable with her. Thanks Lakshmi for the hospitality you gave, in the meet:)

Priti
I met her first in orkut. I posted in the forum to vote for my recipe, Fruit Stiks. Nearly I got so many votes from them, no one dared to ask me for the icecream, except her;) And till now, she is asking, whenever I request to vote for my recipes... :) I really enjoyed it, because we can't ask everyone like this, but with whom we feel comfortable. Thanks Priti for taking me as your friend:)

Ramya
I cannot recollect how it started, but one person from whom I can expect a comment everyday :) Thanks Ramya for your valuable comments:) Do continue your visit and I will also bug you everyday;)

JZ
I met her in Great cooks blogroll. Because of her sign 'JZ' I thought she would be an american. After my visit to her blog, I realized that she is from south India. I got fascinated by her recipes, especially her presentation skill. Thanks JZ for being my friend and continue your creativity:)

Hetal
I met her in Great cooks blogroll. It started with the food contest and we both were competing each other. More than me, my family and friends wanted me to win. I guess it would be the same for her too, since she was getting so many votes:) Thanks Hetal, I really enjoyed the competition with you and do visit me when you find time:)

Srividhya
I liked her blog name very much, she was writing on that name and recently revealed her name to me, and I was so happy:) She used to visit my hubby's blog and I used to check her blog and adore her writing skills. Many subjects which she wrote, really fascinated me. Thanks Srividhya for being my friend:)

Last but not the least.....

Suhee
She first commented on my blog and I checked her blog. She has a very interesting blog and it shows that she is a loving mother, writes her experiences with her son, Yuvan. I gave her an award, unknowingly on her birthday. She was very happy and more than her, I was happy, since I gave it on her birthday. Because, it would be so special to get, even a small chocolate on our birthday. And ..... till now our friendship continues..... :)

Thank you so much Suhee, for giving me an opportunity to write about my friends:) I feel very happy today.

Well...... I am not going to inform anyone about this award. Let me see, who visit first and get their award ....... ;)
