Together we can be alright. Post 10



Today has been a rough day for me. When I have had a rough day, I usually call up or text my friends. But I do not tell them about my day or how things are going wrong for me, at the moment. I see no point in that. Instead we talk about other things--either about some happy thing which is happening in their lives or some old memory and we laugh. That cheers me up too and things do not look at bad as before. But when I called up a good friend today, I felt even more down as things were going horribly wrong in my friend's life as well and there are no easy solutions.

So imagine my delight  when I read a totally  unxepected text from another good friend which said 

Cause I've been there before
And you've been there before
But together we can be alright.
Cause when it gets dark and when it gets cold
We can just hold eachother till we see the sunlight
 I am embedding the song above.

I texted back saying "How did you know I had a rough day?"
Pat comes the reply " Real friends always know everything about each other :-) "

Thank Lord for real friends! When I count my blessings, I count them twice.
May they never change and may they always stay around to be the rainbow, after the rain.

Love and friendship do have a power.

  4. Friendship is a very very powerful thing. And I think in true friendships, there is something like telepathy as well :)

    Hi Preeti,

    It did happen to me many times, when I am low and wanted to speak to my husband, and I pick my phone and I get a call from him. It happened to him as well..friendship and love is great to keep us going.

Wake Up Life is Calling by Preeti Shenoy : Cover launch!

Hello there!

How have you been? I have been immersed in shifting my home and settling down, as you know from my last post.

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later. But it doesn't give you any details about you what happened immediately afterwards, and in the time period leading up to those 15 years.
Life is what you make it ends with Ankita coming out of the mental hospital, and joining a creative writing course. The new book Wake Up, Life is Calling starts off from there.
This book was a very difficult one to write (It took me 8 years, and I wrote nine more books in the meantime) to go back to narrate Ankita's story. I am really excited about how it has turned out.

Since Ankita starts her life afresh, in the city of …
