Here goes my list:
Glad to connect with an old friend and the long chat was so refreshing and energizing as we shared our old stories, laughed at all the funny moments and cracked jokes and decided to meet some time for lunch.
Grateful for David who helped me sell some raffle tickets for the carnival that is scheduled for the 12 December 2015 at the Young Women Christian Association, Secunderabad; this carnival is to raise money for implementing programmes in empowering girls and women in the community. I am glad to be associated in this organization and do my bit and connect with so many other underprivileged women.
I am thankful to have interacted with the HIV+ve women to motivate and encourage them to adhere to the medicines and also have positive outlook towards life.
I am grateful for a lot of volunteers who responded so well when our neighbouring state was flooded with heavy rains killing so many people. It’s a beautiful sight to see so many willing to distribute food, blankets, provide them batteries to connect with loved ones, giving their contact numbers for emergency, offering their vehicles to pick and drop and it’s still going on… even today I saw so many whatsapp messages reaching out to this state.. there is so much of kindness and generosity coming from everywhere around the state.
I am thankful to for the opportunity I got to take a short break and watch an interesting Hindi movie called Tamasha…. which was entertaining in the beginning with lovely scenes from Corsica with songs and dances and the second part has some very serious message for the youngsters. I and my daughter both enjoyed the movie and were happy to see it in new multiplex which is closer to my residence.

There is also some chaos in the campus which is more political than academic related; we are hoping and praying that peace may prevail. I am grateful for my Head who is in the process of evolving peace programmes in the campus to inculcate peace and harmony in oneself and also in the environment.
I am grateful for bloggers who are constant source of inspiration and motivation for me: glad to read Kathy’s blog http://smartliving365.com/the-problem-is-not-the-problem and another post on 8 smart lessons from Santa and a few posts from Kind Spring.org which also helped me to share some of my personal inspirations for the gratitude challenge; though I have not been able to keep to the day’s post; learning to manage at least whenever possible to post something positive.
I am grateful for all those who affirm me personally; when I meet them or they meet me; and still others who stay in touch on email, whatsapp and face book. I feel a sense of gratitude to be surrounded by people who care and who influence me with their positivity. I appreciate and thank Susan Scott http://www.gardenofedenblog.
I am also glad to read Eli’s post http://aglobalfusionista.blogspot.in A candle for joy; a few of other bloggers who were very inspiring; I need to make a note of them …. I did comment on their posts with gratitude, thankful for so many who are always there to help me live my life with gratitude.
Be Blessed & Be Happy!
