My Daughter Kandy

An Angel Left Her Wings

I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.

Her face, it is so perfect, she's sweet and soft and pure.
Sometimes she can be willful and sometimes she is demure.
She tries her very hardest to please and do what's right.
She gives the greatest hugs from morning until night.

Every person that has known her sees this light within her soul
I know that in this whole great world, she has a special role.
She's helpful and considerate to everyone she knows
This light in her shines brighter as my angel grows.

When she sees someone is sad, it opens up her heart.
She wants to do all that she can; she wants to do her part.
She'll squeeze away the sorrow and make me forget about my pain.
She shows me where the sun is when we're hiding from the rain.

I know that God must love me, He showed me with His Grace
I knew just how completely when I saw my angel's face.
And in that very moment when she came into my world,
I knew that she was so much more than just my baby girl.

She would be my sunshine, with a sweetness that won't end.
And when she grows up one day she would be my closest friend.
She would be the reason I would always try my best.
For my little angel baby girl would be my greatest test.

When God entrusts to you an angel, who has left her wings for you.
Encircle her with love with everything you do.
Let her know God made her, and that He trusts you with her care.
Be sure to make time for special moments with her to share.

And when at night she finally says her prayers and goes to sleep
I Thank Him for my angel, and ask for him to always keep
A watchful eye and hand to protect her from this world.
Protect my little angel; protect my baby girl.

I Just Love This Song

Celine Dion - Titanic - My Heart Will Go On ~music video~

NATHAN | MySpace Video

Lyrics of the song:
Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we're gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

You're here, there's nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Wearing Traditional Salwar Kameez

In Indian dress where u can't neglect the importance of sari, there u can also forget the ethnic wear that is Salwar Kameez which much preferred among Indian ladies. Salwar Kameez is generally liked by every lady from gal kid to an adult lady or an old lady.
According to changing fashion this dress also gets make-over from time to time like patiala salwars, A-line shirts, Umbrella cut & of course the chudidars & straight salwar kameez styles.

Now a days the latest in fashion is the straight shirts/kameez. In summers cut sleeves & mega sleeves provide u a new look with varied styles. But in this race of fashion just take care of designs which will look good on u. Choose ur design or cut by considering ur figure.

If u look a bit fatty then u can opt for A-line as these will help u to look slimmer. And try to have more length than u normally wear b'coz A-line shirts look good if they are stitched long.

If u r skinny don't opt for chudidars just go for patiala salwars & quarter sleeve shirts which are now a days in fashion.

If u have good attractive personality then opt for fitted suits.
Ladies who are tall don't go for too long or too short shirts. Ladies with medium height will go for normal length for their suits as this will help u look tall.
Just change with the changing fashion.

Tackling ur Child

# Every child is lovable to their parents. That's why don't bend ur knees in front of their wrong demands. Try to handle it with love.

# If anyone member of the family scolds child for his wrong doings then other members should not try to console him becoz child will not be able to realise whats good & what's bad. Emotions are to be balanced by adults.

# Sometimes adult don't realise that their little one's also have their self esteem so don't scold them in front of ur guests. Have faith in them & love them a lot. Take their suggestions for minor issues.

# Spend some time with ur children ... take them out for picnic. And ask them about their school & do attend their parent-teacher meetings.

# If ur child is stubborn then talk about this to their teacher as teacher can also help to handle this kind of attitude.

# If ur child showing too much of tantrums then let him be alone for sometime. When he sees that no one is caring about him then he gets silent himself.

# When he cry or shouts to have something, don't give him that otherwise he will start doing this every time he want to have anything & try to have benefits from ur feelings.

# In family if u have more one child then don't ever try to compare children with each other. Try to appreciate everyone for his/ her tasks, with this they will have sense of love for each other & they try to accept the goodness of each other.

Have a Happy Parenting!
