3 – Word phrases that can touch a life!

I have been reading this book, Cafe’ David: serving coffee for the soul – Relationships and i want to quote author, David Oh, ..”I heard an ad on the radio about 3 words that can change your life. So, i started to think of 3 words phrases that can touch a life. Here’s my list:

I love you
I’m really sorry
Please forgive me.
You’ve done well
You are beautiful
I need you.
You’re my hero.
I forgive you.
I accept you.
I was wrong.
Don’t forget me.
I’m yours forever!”

Then i thought what are my 3-word phrases. Ones that i have used are –
I love you.
I am sorry.
Really appreciate it.
I missed you.
You look pretty.
You are gorgeous.
You are right.
I was wrong.
Jesus loves you.
You are there!
How are you?
God bless you!
Love you too.
Life is good.

It will be so much fun to know your list of 3 word phrases that you used to lighten someone’s spirit! Waiting for that (OOPS! that’s a 3-word one too). Okie…All the best (Oh my Gosh! Again 3-word phrase…)


I just happened to listen to my favorite song and all my memories of growing up refreshed. How we sang together whatever our mood allowed..our moods changed pirouettes the way life does, exactly expressed in this song sung by Asha Bhosnle in Umroa Jaan filmed on Rekha to make it picture perfect.

Jab bhi milti hai mujhe ajnabi lagti kyun hai

zindagi roz naye rang badalti kyon hai

tum se bichhade hain to ab kis se milati hai hamein

zindagi dekhiye kya rang dikhati hai hamein

I laughed at how we cousins & friends sat together listened to this song and cried as it left its cathartic effect on us. So funny is that we didnn’t even realise what it meant. As life went on and on…it unfolded what these word meant.

“Life is such a suspense, a perfect stranger. How it changes its colors everyday. We meet people for seasons, perfect ones, as if designed by someone and we estrange and then we meet some new ones..and on and on. Let’s see what life has to show now…” – meaning of above lyrics.

Life has taken me to all the unknown places, to unknown situations..taught me some lessons that i didn’t want to learn..showed me what i didn’t expect to see..also, gave me so much that i didn’t expect to receive.

Life is a barter. It gives & takes and then gives..Life is a respecter – Just respect life of yours and of others and it will respect you. And, life is a perfect teacher – if you wanna learn, it will teach you a lot.

I’ve never known what zindagi has to offer..But, one thing that I’ve known…not to be at receiving end but at the giving.

Taking the surprises of life, beating the circumstances, overcoming the pain – Being a warrior. Surprises, circumstances & pain will be there. But, it is your attitude that will make you hug life than hate it.

“It is your attitude that determines the altitude” says Rev. Kong Hee, international speaker and pastor of City Harvest Church, Singapore.

Endure it, enjoy it and Live it – Zindagi…Life!

And, Thursday knows…!

Many a time as i amble down the jogging track in my condo, i meet her. But, for past few days, i have not seen her and have been thinking about her.

She has been special and seems, no noooo, perhaps, I’ve been special for her too. It was love at first sight when i I met her for the first time. She really caught my eyes. I stopped immediately. And, she knew it was her, so she advanced her hand towards me as a gesture of friendship.

“So, cute”, I said. Chubby, cute, furry..and then she blinked at me exactly the one Tom keeps giving his heart to. I mean, the guy in Tom & Jerry show.

I asked her mum what her name was. She said with a big exclamation, “Ooh! Her name is Thursday.”

“Thursday!”, i repeated with a bigger expression.

“Yup. Actually, i found her on Thursday. So, named her so.”

“Okie, but that’s a really cute one”, i said.

“Yeah! She is a lovely cat”, her owner-cum-mum came up with pride.

Indeed she is! I mean, now our friendship has gone ahead. I meet her often down. As i look at her lovingly, she sits down. And, then she lies down on the ground expecting me to run my hand over her furs. She is so lovable.

You know, Thursday knows…LOVE!

She is an animal, but she can sense the love in my look, my hello, my hand shake and my touch. Her acceptance of my love makes her lovable!

She is an animal and she understands love.

Wouldn’t it be so dumb to presume your other fellow human being doesn’t understand the feel of your look, your hug or your speech?

Some people really don’t understand this simple basic thing. That, one CAN FEEL the COLD HUG as much as WARM HUG, or hand, or look or the way they ask, “Hey, buddy how have you been?”, when they actually don’t mean an iota of it.

They know if you are saying something is out of love or not. My family and friends love when i cook for them. It is not that i a great cook. But, they know i have do it for them willingly and lovingly. People may make a five course meal and serve in the finest of table ware, but if there is no love, people will not be able to enjoy food.

A gift that is bought out of formality will be different from one bought out of love. Because, your love and thoughts have gone in it.

An embrace of love will express your feelings to the person without a single word needed.

I mean even your dog knows the loving feeling of your hands..Why can’t humans know that everyone knows love?

“If i speak in the tongues of men and angels, but do not have love, i am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If i have the gift of prophecy, and if i have faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, i am nothing. If i give all i possess to the poor and gave over my body to hardship that i may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.” – 1 Corinthians 13:1- 3
