How Blessed!

How does it feel when your so called blood-related folks act very weird, but somebody in other parts of the world miss you so bad? How blessed are you? I am not trying to make a bit thing out of it, but I wanted to share about things that changed my life forever! My value for relations has heightened to a greater extent!

Never in my life I thought a wee part of my heart would miss UK, thanks to Body Shop! If not every body, most of you know my relation with Body Shop staff! My Body Shop fever started since January 19th, 2010 which is hardly 5 months! I came across two angels in the name of staff! Margaret and Vicky aka humanity personified! I can keep talking about those two for ages nonstop!

As mentioned earlier, I never had great friends! I was always ready to give, but nobody was ready to accept! Life proved that time and again! May be I was too good! I thank God for giving me more enemies instead of friends coz that's what made me close to my mother like nobody's business! My mom will always remain my first best friend forever! Most of my life, I came across devils in disguise but this is my first experience coming across angels in disguise! It obviously takes time to digest the fact that you are truly blessed!

Lovely gesture ever!

Every visit to the store made me feel very special! Nobody made me feel that way earlier save my family and besties! Just five months, they knew I worship their products! Margaret is obsessed with cats! She keeps talking about them the whole day just the way I do about body butter! Customers are her love! Meaning, she calls each "Love!" She is definitely a treasure to the store! Vicky is an "early-twenties" soul striving hard to make her mark in this world! The sweetest part of her; she doesnt want to be a celebrity! That is the sole reason she did not confront the camera for my blog sessions! If they were able to tolerate a customer like me, you can estimate their patience levels!

My mom taught me never to be the reason for somebody's tears! I believe I made my mom proud, but! I was the reason for their tears in a good way, of course! Margaret being decoction and Vicky being milk, they made a perfect cuppa together! They called themselves "The Troublesome Twosome" whereas I used to call them "The Awesome Twosome!" They taught me the essence of life without their knowledge! They were always there to share my happiness and sorrows! They cheered me up in the best ways possible!

At one time, hubby was so conscious about my Body Shop frenzy! Next day, I took him to the store and introduced Margaret and Vicky! Guess what! From then, it was hubby's turn to take me to the store! He used to interact more since then! Can you believe? Credit goes to??? Your guess is right! I was a resident of that place for more than one and half year, but I regret meeting them so late! Should I curse my fate to meet them so late? Should I thank God for giving me such precious friends at least at this stage of my life?

So touching!

I was given the most beautiful card in the world! Shock was the only reaction when I saw my name spelt so right on the card! My name always being butchered in my home land, it was definitely a pleasure to see that spelt so right by sweet strangers from the other side of world! Why so? They never called me by my name! Whenever I had to make a call to the store, I was like, "Hello, its me!" Whenever I had to visit the store, they were like, "What brings you to the store today?" What else? Obviously Margaret and Vicky!

I still remember their last words with tears in their eyes! "Take care! Wherever you are, be happy! We will always miss you! Dont forget to stay in touch! You are not a customer, but definitely our friend!" My last words being "Hope I get to see you again in this life time!" Motherly love from Margaret and sisterly love from Vicky! What else could anybody ask for? If you are in Scotland, especially Stirling make sure you visit Body Shop @ Murray Place! Give Margaret and Vicky a warm hug on my behalf! You will definitely get the same in return, I promise! God Bless Margaret and Vicky! Missing you from the other part of the world!

P.S - All I wanted was to vent out my feelings for those two angels, so I dont mind if this post goes totally unnoticed! My heart feels light, now! I am still not sure how they feel about me, but this is how I feel towards Margaret and Vicky! Hoping you were really sad to see me go, angels :)

Did some one forget me? Hope not! I am back for good, but it might take me a while to get into full time blogging! Guess what! I am back to India, forever! I thank each and every lovely soul who helped reduce my blood pressure regarding travel tantrums! I can't thank you enough for all the loving and oh-so caring messages dropped by! I am so sorry I couldnt reply to those as I was head over heels occupied! Just wanted to share, all my stuff finally reached safe and sound especially the Body Shop lot!

I did some shopping like Sleek palette, MAC lipstick, The Body Shop body butters, YSL Rouge Volupte etc in the last couple of days! I will definitely rant and rave about those as well! I might come up with a blog sale soon! Dont ask me when, girls! My body clock is misbehaving! I am claustrophobic, so I hate flying! I had a hard time travelling from Glasgow to London Heathrow to Mumbai to Bangalore! Phew! Bloody hell! I can hardly stand air-conditioned vehicles! Imagine my plight during the flight! It might take a while to get used to the normal routine, but I will surely come back!

Ramblings shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes, so I take leave with your permission! See you soon, all!
