I am female, ( Many think I am male), spiritually inclined, 50+ married with a 14  year old son, an housewife. Most of my poems are influenced by my past experiences and what I have read in my favourite book Bhagvad Gita.( Gita Sadak sanjivini by Gita press Gorakhpur). This book has answers to most questions about life and tips for perfect living. I love reading poems written by others. Thanks all for brightening my day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDREA

Blog Posted:9/5/2021 11:06:00 AM

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDREA

Wishing you many happy returns of the day and a joyous life ahead.

I came to know through Anita's poem that it is Andrea's birthday. My first thought was to wish her announce it all so that everyone can do the same.

Andrea has been an inspiration to me since I joined soup. Her liveliness, her frank comments, her no pretense personality and above all her helpfulness. She once wrote in a poem about all her health problems. Despite that she is optimistic, cheerful, and manages a job, house and has touched the life of many soupers in a way that is they cannot forget.

May God bless you friend.

Have a fabulous day ahead!

The Happiest Birthday to my Best PS Buddy ... I'm so thankful I found you here, Dear Friend, for I doubt I'd still be around if you hadn't been. So many chats, so many "ventings", so many laughs ... you have been an unfailing source of support and kindness, and I know this is one connection that will be for a lifetime. Love ya, Kiddo hope your day is a perfect one! Love, Your Buddy, G <3

My goodness, Rama (sorry I said your name wrong first time). I had no idea you had put this up here until just now. Was checking Soup before going to bed! What a wonderful surprise. Thanks for your kind words about me. Anitha was so sweet to write her acrostic for me too. I thank everyone who came here to wish me a happy birthday. I was born actually when the 5th fell on a Monday, so tomorrow I get to have off from work what was my mother's biggest LABOR day of all!!!

Happy birthday dear Andrea...Belated one...I missed PS for the past few days due to a change of domain connection in our area..PS can't be accessed without VPN.

Thank you sweet dear Rama for sharing this... You are such a beautiful soul. Yes, I wrote a tribute to her on her birthday as I couldn't post a blog... Yes, Andrea is all that sweet personality that you mentioned above.. From the time I joined Soup, she has been supporting and inspiring me like she does to all poets here. There are other poets too, who are so inspiring that I ADORE here in Soup... I just loved Constance's comment below.. "poetic sister"... Happy birthday dear Ria...Have a fabulous year ahead... Hugs.. ~ Ani
