All About Mihran

Aina has created a tribute to one of the kindest individuals I’ve had the pleasure of meeting since joining the blogging world. His willingness to support and urge many of us makes life that much simpler. I consider myself blessed to know Mihran, a remarkable friend to all bloggers.

All About Mihran

I have blogged for years now. But I never met a man as gentle and kind as Mihran Kalaydjian. Because aside from the fact that he had been so generous reblogging my posts, there was this one very warm conversation I had with him.

When I posted my condolences to our dear Ajaytao, I made Mihrank cry that day. Although I was worried if I made him cry because I wrote bad; or I wrote something for Oscar’s (coz I do have the tendency for drama), but I was really touched with his honest sentiment. Coz Mihran never met Ajay, yet he shed a tear for him. He even asked me “Why am I crying, Aina?” I told him, “It’s because Mihran, you’re a gentleman with a very big heart and beautiful soul.” And so we were both crying in the end.

And I mean those words up to…

  1. Mihran is a constant I can depend on for support and spreading God’s love. Thank you for sharing this tribute to him.

  2. Hi Sheri. First off, so sorry we’ve been ghosts as of late. We’ve been locked away in our writing room, working on our book. But we’re close to an end & can’t wait to get back to our regular hours & blogging again. Now, onto your post. Never had the pleasure of meeting him. But the world could use more sensitive men with big hearts!!! So we’ll definitely be checking his blog out & will tell him you sent us. 😉 xo

  3. Thanks for this repost, Sheri. Mihran IS special and has been very kind to my blog. As with most of the bloggers I follow, I’ve had his posts arrive as a weekly archive, but you just spurred me to add him to the few “Chosen” whose posts can arrive in my inbox as they are created. (You’re permanently in this Pantheon.)

    • John – Yes indeed, Mihran is indeed a special soul and he’s been so kind to so many of us. And, thank you for allowing me a spot in that in-basket of your. That special connection will always be there. If you’d like to take a gander over to my awards page you’ll find a piece of music Mihran dedicated to Tom and I for a special Sunday out of the kindness of his heart. I treasure it along with your poetry.

    Many thanks, Sheri! Thanks for your very kind support to our humble community!

  6. Sheri, I have not been honored meeting him or having him visit, but I did go visit his blog and he seems so real so sincere. I hope to learn more and more of him. Take care, Bill

    • Bill – Leave a comment a few times (if you like). Like yourself, Mirhan is one of the most delightful and giving men I’ve had the pleasure of meeting since I’ve started blogging. BTW, if you are up to it, and you want to, journey over to my blog under awards and you’ll find a beautiful song Mirhan performed for Tom and I. We will of course always cherish it and I play it often when Tom and I are together and even when I simply want to listen to music. Mirhan has several pieces of music on YouTube.
      I sincerely enjoyed our chat last evening. You take care, my friend. Have a great day. Sheri

  7. He is delightful. He found my blog and I then I found his. ❤

    • Yes, Tess. Mihran is indeed special. He’s so incredibly kind to all of us bloggers in promoting our blogs and offers of help and encouragement whenever possible. Are you aware that he’s an accomplished musician? He has several pieces on YouTube and if you’d like to travel over to my Awards sight, you’ll find a piece he developed for Tom and I. We feel so fortunate. Have a great day. Sheri

      • What a wonderful tribute to you and your husband, Sheri. Fantastic musician. My favorite instrument: the piano. Excellent!
        I’ve come across a couple of his YouTube numbers. Quite a talent. 🙂
