I have written Gratitude List post for September,2015 and am linking this to Gratitude circle.
|Feast of Our Lady of Health, Hyderabad|
The other birthdays of the month was my neighbour Lucy, my friends daughter, Arushi,David's niece Diana Marcus and another two small kids, Tabitha & Sam
|Mother in law & Maria Dorothy my daughter|
|Black Forest cake|
Visiting the local shrine with the family is mandatory every year, and meeting a whole lot of extended family members, friends and neighbours who have now moved away to another place is fun; as we get to see only once a year. I was glad to meet one of my childhood friends and catch up with her; we exchanged cell numbers and started chatting on phone, reconnecting our lives and picking up from where we left, it’s been a long time; and I felt happy to renew the contact.
Nice to be connected with bloggers who posted on the suicide prevention day; sensitizing and spreading awareness on suicide prevention. I felt very happy to read some very inspiring and meaningful posts on suicide prevention and could not resist but join their conversation. You may read if you are interested in making a difference and share this to spread the word around, we need not help 100 people, if we can help one, we have done our part.
I am grateful for the weather in Hyderabad; it’s been raining and I am glad for the rain; being the rainy season; and with water shortage every summer, we were worried, as July and August is already over and there was no sign of rain and now in the previous week we had rains a couple of days and the lovely showers every evening. It has been a cooling experience, bringing hope to our fears, now we see water is full and there is sense of satisfaction, we had some rain for this rainy season.
|Celebration of our small community in our area.|
We had a one year celebration in our small community, wherein we meet regularly for prayers to build and uplift one another; we have more than 100 Christian families in the area where I live. But we have a very small group who come in regularly for prayer and fellowship… this was a small initiative from our parish to begin a group in the respective areas, where families can come together and pray together for the community and uphold one another’s faith. It’s been a positive experience and I am grateful for families who come to pray and share their faith.
I am also thankful for the interactions I have been having with a couple of bloggers on line and the feedback on some of the issues that I am facing. I do appreciate and value their sincere compliments and comments.
Amidst all the celebrations in this month – I am grateful for my daughter’s exam that went on smoothly; wherein I did not have to take a lot of stress running around my daughter to revise and study… with minimum motivation and little bit of encouragement I helped her to plan and implement her schedule… not perfectly.. but a little bit of flexibility. So today even the little bit help is not required, as yesterday was the last exam, and overall she has done well.
I am also grateful to be part of life skill training for young adolescents who are HIV+ve. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to get into meaningful work.
