I am glad to write this post for May, 2015.
The first thing that comes to my mind is the Gratitude Challenge I took part for 21 days, hosted by Corinne @ Everyday Gyaan.com was a great way to keep me healthy and happy; as I oriented myself to write down what I felt, inspired by the lovely quotes on gratitude.

May month has been a busy month, wherein I was part of an extended family’s celebration. I was part of every ritual of the marriage, and was also busy with making a book let for the wedding, time was spent in selecting the readings and putting everything in order. This match was between my nephew (my cousin sister’s son) with my husband David’s niece (his cousin sister’s daughter). Since David helped to find this match – we were involved in every decision making and all celebrations before the wedding and after the wedding too. It was fun and also created a family bond.

This month was also a summer break for my daughter; so I was busy in getting her homework done; and also taking her out for a couple of movies. We enjoyed watching PIKU (a Hindi movie) together. I also sent her for a two day workshop on self awareness through painting, which she enjoyed. We went for a day’s tour to Nagarjunasagar Dam and had fun going around with friends, despite the weather our friends kept us entertained.

I went to the doctor with a particular problem and I discovered other problems; I am grateful for this as it helped me to go for thorough Master Health Check up and ensure that I am healthy. I am grateful to the doctor for being concerned, genuine and patient with all my queries, and also for connecting me to the right persons.

There were two birthdays in this month in our family one was my nephew Samuel, who celebrated on the 15 May and my second brother Francis who celebrated his birthday as well as his 35th wedding anniversary. I am happy and grateful for them in my life; and sent my love, prayers and wishes… the month of May was combination work, celebrations, fun, outing and also bonding with family.

I am grateful to step into the 6th month of this year June 2015, hopefully that the weather will cool down; managed with 47 degrees and still alive and happy, looking forward for another meaningful month of this year. My journey will continue with gratitude….. hoping to hear your thoughts on my post.
