Blessed with friends

When I moved to Pittsburgh on a snowy February 2003 day, I knew 3 friends in the city...
The days would go tasteless...surrounded by strangers, no matter how nice they are.
Three years later, things are so different...
Celebrating me becoming a fellow started in the VA hospital ER where I last worked as a resident...Thanx Rachel for making my day more exciting...and memorable!




In the evening, the coffee shop "gang" joined for a celebration dinner, over a lebanese mezza and food...
"For he's a jolly good fellow" they sang...
Thanx Rachel, Ann-Mary, Kurt, Niraj, Jessica, and Anita.
Thanx Jan, Flavia, and Wissam, although you couldn't make it.


I'm blessed to have you in my life.
