Thankful for . . .

Today after a long long time I did some yoga. I have been postponing this for long. I felt like it and so just DID IT.

And for a greater part of the day, I just relaxed to two movies: flipping channels when one had a break. It was fun and less demanding than the thesis writing.

Just a bit of the writing is left. I am glad that it ending slowly but surely.

Only grace

Many things today prompted me to think about how life is a gift and one needs to treasure it. Time seems to be fleeting and being alive is a blessing.

Sometimes when motivating oneself becomes  slightly mundane and colourless, the higher power always plods me on. 

There are times when I want something so desperately but then I know it is not for me. Letting go is difficult but not impossible.

Reassured promises and loving sweet-nothings are lovely to hear when unexpected and I am thankful for such wonderful surprises.

Life goes on and gets even better with gratitude.

A glowing 80th :)

On 13th March, I had blogged about how my grandfather was diagnosed with cancer and was fighting a battle. Many of your comments in the form of prayers, best wishes and encouragement was lovely. I was touched and grateful for all your words.

Now after four months, the medicines are working well and he is fine. On the 30th we celebrated his 80th and how joyful were we in that ocassion!

Sometimes miracles happen. Rather, it always happens. We only have to keep our eyes open.

Our entire family was broken when we got the news of his cancer and how faithless we were. We only thought of death and all that. But then he has lived through it and how! Hale and healthy to see the 80th on the 30th.

I am overwhelmed with gratitude to all of you who wished me well. The higher power looks and never disappoints :)
