Count Your Blessings !

Whatever I am today in my life, I owe a lot to my mother. I to remember my mom who was very special person to me. She was a woman with a generous heart, and gratitude was a way of life for her.

I always remember how she would be thankful for little things, and her actions would overwhelm me. I could never understand how she sustained that energy to remain thankful at all times. 

She not only taught me to be thankful for small little things of every day life like daily food, clothing and shelter, but even in tough times and difficult situations in life.

Managing a large family of nine children was a tough task for her. Whenever I struggle with my two little children, I wonder at her capacity to not only manage our family, but also the generosity to accommodate my uncle's family too.

She ensured that all of us went to school and our basic necessities were provided.  She was for every child in times of pains, illness, and confusion. Despite all hardships, she was woman who had deep faith in God, believed in the providence, and was always a happy woman. 

I learnt it from her, to be happy all the times, and to always be grateful for what has been, the past, what is the present and what is to come the future.
