When my daughter was just two years old, she took a fascination for drawing. Most children of her age like to draw random things and nibble on their crayons. My daughter was also like them. She just loved to hold a crayon and draw random lines on a piece of paper. I think what she loved the most was the colors she could see on the paper when her crayon swiped across it.

She was also in love with butterflies. I think butterflies sparked her imagination. They were bright, beautiful and delicate and she would love watching them sit on a flower and carefully watch them fly. As time passed by, she even tried to run with the butterflies in our backyard. It was something that she enjoyed more than anything- even more than her favorite food.

On a Sunday, I was busy preparing for the upcoming week with my wife. We had lots of stuff to do – laundry was pending, one of us had to do the dishes and also look after Tanya. I also needed to wash my car out in the garage. We both were working frantically and in between seeing that Tanya wasn’t putting herself in a hazardous situation. She was unusually quiet that day. After about half an hour, I checked on her and found her smiling at the paper. I rushed to her to see what made her so amused. She had made a vague figure of a butterfly, complete with wings and colorful dots all over them. I showed my wife the drawing immediately.

Till date, I have saved the memory of that day on my desk, and I framed the first drawing of my daughter. It reminds me of her beautiful smile and every time I am unhappy or stressed, I look at it and feel better. I like to be organised at work and having a good office desk with plenty of storage like these from Furniture At Work can be very useful and this drawing gives me hope and vigor.

There's nothing better than a weekend spent at a spa and total relaxation and happy thoughts is a way of life to me. It's lucky I love cats really with a name like mine! Happily married with my three fur babies to keep us company.
