The year is never complete without even a token appreciation for all the love and care you provide: which is translated into marketing, cleaning, washing and ironing. All of these are performed with more than the requisite attention provided by those professionals we used to hire.
This year has not been very bountiful for us and we struggled for seven months on borrowed money, yet you never wavered in your resolve to do the things you do, the best way possible.
Love is not the fire and passion of spontaneous moments but the little things that transpire and bind the lives of two individuals everyday. We have successfully accomplished these and it has transformed us and our love in a way that is seamless that it is hardly noticeable.
I am just surprised at times when you can't believe what I say and seem bewildered by the transformation. You don't even recognize the change your love has done to its object of affection.
I was a creation of some wild self-gratifying and inward-centered personality with some tinge of unselfishness and a dash of human concern for others. Yet I have changed and you can't determine that you are the cause and the only reason for the change.
I love you very much mahal; I want to grow old gracefully with you. The change in me- total and complete - has been made possible by the unrelenting love you have given.
Thank you very much. Merry Christmas! May we have more love and blessings next year!
