26/11...didnt forget..didnt forgive

remembering the week where we sat glued to tv, watching our brave commandos policemen soldiers and fireman save people adn risk their lives....cant forget the horror and the fear...the first time when the city that never stops halted for almost a week....praying for those who lost their lives...

love is...

love is always patient and kind
it is never jealous
love is never boastful or conceited
it is not rude or selfish
it does not take offense & is not resentful
Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins
but delights in truth
it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope & to endure whatever comes....

taken from movie : a walk to remember

song of the day : the rose...perfect for the post!!!!
