My Sweet Nothings

All that linger in my mind …

Gift Your Children With Gratitude …..


One day through Write Tribe Pro Blogger and through Blog-A-Rhythm networks I happened to read Vidya Sury’s blog.  Really I was much moved, inspired,delighted and motivated from many of her posts. Whenever you visit her blog, you would certainly feel the positive vibes around you. I am grateful for many reasons. First and foremost my gratitude goes to Vidya for introducing me to 2016 Gratitude Circle bloghop. Now I started to strongly believe that Practicing Gratitude makes you happier.  If you want your children to be happier in their life, gift them with gratitude than cozier items.

I would like to share with you two things today. Expression of gratitude and sorry would take your relationships to higher dimensions. I was busy cleaning my house and especially the bunch of my various collections. Suddenly I noticed a drawing and was taken aback 12 years. It brought so many wonderful memories into my mind. That drawing made me to be grateful for the loving family, the gift of marriage, the happiness of motherhood, the joy of being responsible and  all the pains of pregnancy. Grateful moments are happy moments and happy moments are memorable moments.

Another drawing also made me to move into tears. It’s actually a Sorry Card. But I could not recollect the scene behind that drawing. It reminded me the generosity of my son and made me to be proud to have him in my life. I have learnt many life lessons from him in much simplest ways. If I want to elaborate his principles, then I have to write series of posts. But you can expect sooner. Thank you so much, my dear for making my world beautiful.

Sorry ... My dear
