    There are moments in life

    when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real! When the door of happiness closes, another opens; but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don’t see the one, which has been opened for us. Don’t go for...

    Each Heart Beat Has It's Own Time

    As Time Passes By

    It's hard to assume then dreams become inadequate to make it real. Hence, cherish the moment and live in it until it becomes a lasting memory which can make you smile in the future as an enduring remembrance of the hours passed and days that were gone.
