Counting my blessings

I am counting my blessings today, the cheapest and easiest way to be healthy and happy:
I am blessed as my discomforts of my body is decreasing, my swellings in the legs have come down, the pains in my joints have reduced, and I am able to cut, peel vegetables and fruits, even wash a few utensils and also write without any discomfort (I was not able to sign in my attendance register because of swelling and pain in both fingers) and now I am also typing on the computer, communicate on whatsapp, sms. It’s truly blessing.

I am blessed as my doctor suggested me a second opinion and was willing and open to take the feedback and even encouraged to take treatment in a different place. (some time some doctors interpret as a lack of trust and will not even suggest) Blessed to have a doctor who is open and caring.

Blessed to have extended families surrounded with; who care and are available and regularly in touch, the bond that is comforting.

Blessed to have friends who are authentic; judge less, love, respect and understand – it’s one of biggest blessing to have genuine and caring friends.

Blessed to be able to walk, stand comfortably and even do some stretches, getting back to yoga; a few of the postures that I am able to and also relax and recoup.

Blessed to be able to cook something that I want to, and the ability to manage small tasks of boiling milk, making tea/coffee/horlicks whenever I want to, without being dependent on anybody.

Blessed to be involved in meaningful work – so satisfying, last few days dealing with students who are down, depressed and helping them to connect with doctors, helplines for emergency and offering support from our centre.

Blessed to be involved in extending services, our centre is helping a college to establish a counseling cell for students, glad to be involved in this process.

Blessed to be part of a facilitation process in conducting psychometric assessment for students in the campus collaborating with another agency, grateful for the learnings.

Grateful for the acceptance and recognition I get in being involved in my work, above all the space to be my authentic myself and work with love and passion.

Blessed to have so many memories, I was looking at all the pictures taken in the last week for various occasions, thus reliving happiness and filling myself with gratitude.

Blessed to be connected with long distance calls of friends who live far; and update self with the happenings and sharing both the joys and sorrows of life.

Sam my nephew reminded me yesterday that its Thanksgiving Day celebration in his office; and he was going for the party, while sitting in his cab he was talking about how the celebration would be and the details. 
In awe of this sunset clicked on the journey

This made me think that I need not go anywhere for a service, and I started making my thanksgiving notes on my desk to post it here and I am glad in a way to join the others too without having a party, but feeling happy and grateful for so many blessings !
