April is over #GratitudeCircle
Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.
With April over the first quarter of the year is done. And as I look back and reflect, it has been a good month.
And I have a lot to be grateful for.
Strange as it may sound – Yes! Little Po and Ms. Papaya have ‘graduated’ from Nursery School.
While one part of me feels sorry that they will soon be entering the big bad world. But on the other hand, am grateful that they will be going to elementary school.
Renovations are over
For those who’ve been following my blog will know that since mid-February I’ve been having workmen at home.
Finally, as April drew to a close, so did the work and now my house is my own again. workers are out of the house.
And the room is looking marvellous.
To be honest, our architect didn’t have any CAD software to show us what the end result would be so we had to leave it pretty much to her imagination. The workers were unsupervised for days on end and we had some delays thanks to the frequent holidays.
So I’m grateful that the room turned out the way it did.
We had three birthdays this month.
Starting with Hubby Dear’s at the beginning and ending with birthdays of two 88-year-olds. Both my Ma in law and my dad who are just a day apart celebrated birthday at the end of the month.
I am grateful that I could celebrate both – one in Pune and one at home.
In fact, my dad’s birthday turned out to be an impromptu party when all of us landed up in Pune. Even though Pune was unbearably hot, the little ones enjoyed shaking a leg and attacking the birthday cake with gusto.
Finding lost things
Even though I’m quite careless about keeping things in the right place always, I don’t often lose things.
So I was more than upset to miss my new reading glasses as I’d had them just for a day! But my Little Po found them under the car seat and wasn’t I thrilled to get them back ! Thanks Po for finding them.
Meeting a legend
It is not very often that one gets to meet a person one generally reads about in the papers. On the last day of the month, I had a once in a lifetime chance to meet one of the doyens of Indian industry. Thank you Mr. P for this wonderful opportunity.
My blogging woes finally got sorted out when SiteGround helped me step by step and deleted the files that needed to be removed in order to free up space. Thank you SiteGround for finally sorting out my problem.
Perversely, I’m grateful for this problem because I learnt a lot while trying to solve it on my own.
The other benefit of this blogging glitch was an enforced break from blogging.
Often you have to step back and look from the outside. This forced me revisit my old posts and I figured why my blog was stagnating.
So thank you Universe for playing havoc with my blog.
Now as I look back, I realise I do have lots to be grateful for this month past.
What about you ?
