One blink of an eye and 2017 is over! I felt that I just wrote this bye bye post for 2016 and it’s already time to bid goodbye to even 2017. Time flies faster than a spaceship.

On a personal front last year was quite challenging. Health scares of loved ones and my own, maddening flow of daily stuff that was going out of hands and true realization of that quote – “Man proposes, God disposes”! Sigh. But lemme sound positive and say:

ONE

After all, you can’t have all the hits, there will be misses too. Just that in 2017, there were more misses. 

Sunshine came in the form of RainbowDiaries.com in 2017 which kept my spirits up and of course, my lovely kids and hubby.Gratitude to this blog baby and my babies!

Attended some talk-of-the-town events as a media, got associated with theAsianparent as a TAPFluencer, won a few accolades for all the hard work and multi-tasking this mom does for RainbowDiaries.

Lemme summarize the year that’s gone by and how was it for RainbowDiaries.


Noble causes and community initiatives…

Charitable causes is something that I would like to do more of in 2018. We MUST contribute our bit to the society.
