that day

I was blessed a number of times that day.

I was left amazed, i am, even after a day. Surprising, people made it a point to wish me. A privilege.

My joy knew no bounds when i recieved a card and a letter. Excitement ran through me when i fingered it. I still look at it lovingly, with a smile on my face. Ink on paper. Words from her.

A few friends congratulated me. Would they let go of an easy prey? The day was no different from the others. On the other hand, it was. Cramming diseases, their characteristics into me, which celebrated....

Celebrated the smile that played on my face..... the rings which heralded M's call... the beeps on my phone.... the pride on my parents' face.... the cheerful, unknown voices which came running towards me.

They lit my day.
