June was a great month, as the much awaited holiday happened in the first week; and I was glad to spend time with my daughter. I am grateful for my friend Aparna who took the initiative to plan and help us implement this programme for us.

We had a great time; and it was a good break from our routine; and especially for my daughter who was wanting to go out being summer holidays, this was the best thing happened.

I am glad to connect with two of my old class mates from my college Indira Kante and Subhandra and it was fun to meet them at different times and recall all the lovable memories of our college days; the fun we had and how we helped one another with the assignments and stayed together to motivate and complete the degree course. I felt great to catch up after almost 30 years and so much has happened in our lives… I am still looking forward to meet them as they are in the city.

This month is also my sister law’s birthday, my second brothers wife, sagaymary and I am grateful for the gift of her in our family.  She was married to my brother and lived with us – a joint family, while I was still in college. She was very cheerful, warm, friendly and was very good cook. I have always enjoyed the cutlets she made for us; and was very hospitable. She is a hard working and family oriented person.

She took care of us and helped my mother in the kitchen. I remember her for all that she was in our family and am grateful for her son sunny Emmanuel who brought so much joy to us.

I am grateful for David my husband for helping me in all the work at home and Dorothy for managing her studies independently without my help; thus giving space for me to do what I want to.

I am also grateful to these  bloggers  http://moneyning.com  http://smartliving365.com  http://vidyasury.com  http://www.gardenofedenblog.com  http://everydaygyaan.com. http://www.alphabetsalad.com  & http://www.marcandangel.com  who have been a great source of inspiration and motivation… can’t thank them enough for the learning’s I have had and I want to thank each one of them for their efforts and brilliant posts to keep me going.

Be Blessed & Be Happy !


  1. Glad you all had a good holiday. I've always heard of Horsely Hills but didn't know anyone who had been there. Dorothy got a great photograph of the place.
    Belated birthday greetings to your sister-in-law. I remember her as a peaceful person whenever I've met her.

    1. My pleasure to hear from you Corinne and yes we did have a good time, its a beautiful and quiet place to be in away from the city. Dorothy and Arushi were happy in one another's company, entertaining me and aparna with their songs and mimes. I shall communicate to my sister in law your wishes.... she is very simple and authentic and I am glad to be connected to her.

  2. Genevive, may you always keep going and being a light in our lives, your friends and family, colleagues, everyone. Your June sounds fulfilling and wonderful! May July and always be just that!
