‘I have just 9 more months!’.. she thinks

'I have just 9 more months!’  she tells herself.

Giving her an aura of being at peace. She will complete 50 years of age.
Thus starts her second innings.

50th Birthdays are made in heaven. To be distributed to the priceless species on earth.
But.. What the hell !! Why is this 50th event so special? Is it because it occurs only once in a 100 years? When it arrives for the second time, its called a centenary.  J Whatever the reason… it is a much awaited one for sure. 'I have just 9 more months.'...  she reminds herself

Now, this woman is definitely not the coy teenager nor a first-time inexperienced harassed mother of a toddler. No more a demure wife, often treated like a doormat. Crossed every bridge, as it approached. Through the course of this journey called life, has braved the ups and the downs of experiences. She has borne the rubs and digs of the snooty-snobs of society. Has learnt the art of cosmetics, to camouflage her pains. She has got over the fear of a dentist’s mean looking chair. Made a few friends, who accepted her with her deficiencies –and moulded her to some perfection. Overcome a horde of other petty situations. Each a milestone in its own way. Making her strong, humble, observant, patient and learned all at the same time.

Giving her an aura of being at peace. She will complete 50 years of age.

 ‘I have just 9 more months!’  She tells herself.. Come on December.

Thus starts her second innings. The golden era begins.  A caterpillar cocooned, now turned into a confident butterfly. All ready to fly and scale new heights. Do the things that was warped into a tightly packed dream.

 To turn into a saint? Far from it..

Scuba diving to para sailing to bungee jumping. and the sorts. Will watch her as the years roll by. The pages are ready to be inscribed onto. Longing to be a person she always yearned to be…  just in 9 more months

Making plans and organizing and dreaming of her Oh.. so happy future.
Hoping, Wishing and praying to God to make this forward journey a successful, happy, healthy  and a content one.
