Saying THANK YOU at the end of the day reminds me that I’m truly grateful beyond measures for being alive, healthy, happy and able to continue my life journey.

It reminds me that I have been blessed with wonderful life filled with beauty and unconditional love of my son, my better half, family, friends and boundless possibilities greater than any struggle or challenge that I’ve ever faced. Highlights of my gratitude moments for May 2017 :

…… My Sweet Nothings was totally down for almost ten days during May 2017. The reason was adding some theme and plugins. I was annoyed like anything. In spite of all hardships and struggles, the site was made up without any data loss. Feeling much grateful for the support and assistance given by HostMyBlog Team, Much thanks goes to Raj and his support team.

……. Really excited on gaining nearly 200 followers on Instagram in a month. Feeling accomplished with a total of 2100 followers for MSN.

…….   I was suffering from skin allergy since January. Had treatments at various skin clinics. But all went in vain. Lastly I had treated at Thirunelveli Leela Clinic. Feeling much better now. Sincere thanks to my family members for their unconditional love and care towards me during those sick days.

……. Very much delighted to win some Amazon gift vouchers and beautiful Journal for various Mother’s Day contests and  events.

Beautiful Writing Journal

…… Not to mention how much excited I would be on the day when my blog got approval for Google Adsense after three attempts.

…… Had the fifth mottai ( Tonsure ) function for my son. We made a wish to have mottai at Arupadai Veedu – Six Abodes of Murugan. Completed five and yet one to go.

….. Recognition and appreciation for our hard efforts will sure be an encouragement for doing more in future. Feeling happy for being featured by Puspa, Romila and Ishieta. My first post 7 Storytelling Hacks – Introducing Kids To Cultural Stories” got published in monthly e-magazine “Raising World Children”.

….. Friends always support us for many causes. And this month I was feeling much awe on meeting my friends after 22 years in a friend’s family function. Thanks Hema for this loving invite.

After a tasty lunch at Madurai function

….. Happy to fill the hearts and tummies of my family since the cook went on a long leave.

Gratitude for food

 

And I am grateful that my gratitude list grows exponentially every month …. Thank God for keeping me blessed always…… And what are you grateful for today???

    It’s so good to focus on what’s going RIGHT in our lives; I firmly believe we all have a balance, but focusing on the good tends to make us notice more of it and seems to bring in more goodness. Whether it really does, or whether we just perceive that it does because we’re paying more attention to it than to the bad, I don’t know – and I think it doesn’t matter much in the end, so long as it seems that way and we ARE noticing!

    Lovely post. I also so believe that the key to happiness is to be grateful for what we have. Here and now. Reading your post made me smile – happy for you and the good things happening, like with your son. Today I am grateful for a good walk- and talk with my dad in the afternoon. That my son was happy for his driving lesson going so well. And for gorgeous trees I saw..

    Your happiness rubbed off on me too reading this. Happy for your achievements. Did I tell you that you have a lovely smile Vasantha. Its been almost 2 years but could not be able to harness the power of adsense. If you do, I wish you to pass me the knowledge. Its great to meet old friends after so long.
