Berrilicious pudding – Dawn on the platter!

Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn – Oliver Wendell Homes

Dawn gives you hope. It gives you a promise to hold something beautiful and bring your dreams alive. Dawn is the power, the music, the magic and most important – the desire. It keeps your spirits high and let you relive your moments and make new memories.

My this blog post is little heavy on words and thoughts and yes I agree that I have written it flawlessly while giving words to each and every emotion which I am going through right now. I am not well and my left eye is giving me lot of pain due to epsiciliritis and the vision is blur. I am scared that whether my eye will be back to normal or not…there’s a hope for me and the promise from the doctors – But I am sad and waiting for the magic. Perhaps it has happened for the first time so I am more lost but yes – I am waiting for the dawn!
Every task is a challenge for me this time – be it cooking, travelling, working or writing… But I am determined to do it…with all my will power and confidence. Wish me power!
