Focus On Your Blessings

I received this forward some time back and thought of sharing it here.

Maria and Natty were two young mothers who lived across the street from each other. From their living room windows, each woman was able to observe the activities of the other woman’s family.

One day, Maria confessed that she’d been watching what went on in Natty’s front garden and that she envied her. I don’t know what you mean, Natty said with puzzled look on her face.

Well, I often see your husband out in the front mowing your lawn, and I wish my husband would do the same thing, Maria said. Your garden is beautiful!

Natty laughed and then made her confession. I have been doing the same thing, Joan, she said. I watch your husband in your front garden – and I have envied you! Maria shook her head with disbelief. What on earth do you mean she asked?

Natty replied, I see your husband playing ball with your toddler so nicely. How I wish Keith, my husband, would do the same thing! He never wants our boys in the way when he mows. Be honest Joan. Would you rather have your husband play with your son than have a well-manicured lawn?

I had not thought of that before, but you’re right Natty. I may have tall grass, but Eric, my husband is right about playing with little Johnny, Maria concluded.

My dad said to me once, “there is not a thing called ‘settling’ in life. At every point of life, we always need something like, money, job that u love, position, good health, satisfaction, love etc. Live your life to fullest (off course keep trying to achieve things you(feel) are lacking in life but stop worrying about that)”.Always enjoy what u have. Appreciate and thank god for every small blessings in your life instead of wailing and complaining. Very often we are blind to our own blessings that are so obvious to others. Let us cultivate the habit of concentrating on our several blessings rather than brooding over what we perceive as curses. Have a nice week folks

Buddy, why did you do this?

Da you have got a call, my mom’s voice woke me up from a nap on that lazy afternoon. Dino: hello da this is dino, did U hear what happened, ajin suicide today morning

  I got shocked and didn’t believe my ears .He was one of the best students in my batch. Apart from his academic excellence, he was a gentleman, very spiritual and blessed with very loving parents and a brother. And also he got offer from HCL.I got angry at him, when I heard about his suicide. Even though it happened almost two years back, I still can’t forget the shock, anger and disappointment of his parent’s face. The worst part was, we didn’t get a clear idea, why he did it. We know he were in love with a girl and was going through some problems in there relationship (Only good thing he did was, he never told anyone, even to his close friends, who the girl was).Still this incident is a burning memory to all of us. And about his parents and brother, still they don’t have any idea why there son did this and haven’t recovered from the shock yet

  The main thing that back me from reading regional newspapers now a days, are increase in number of suicide among youngsters. The reason for most of them are love failure, exam pressure, scolding from parents or teachers. Now a day’s most of the kids are so sensitive. They can’t tolerate harsh words (even for valid reason) from parents. Last week I read that a 17 year old student suicide because there parents didn’t get a cell phone for him. And the reason behind another final year BDS student from trivandrum was, her teacher didn’t sign her lab record and scolded for something.

  I don’t know what to say about this and what to write about this. Before ending there life, why can’t they think about there loved ones for a moment or why can’t they share the problem with a close friend. Breaking up with a guy/girl or failing in an exam, is not the end of the life or world and also parents and teachers scolding us to correct us. Once they understand this and think about there loved ones for sometime before committing this, then they won’t feel like ending there precious life. I’m not sure, I think so

   Anyways life is precious gifts of almighty .We have to thank him for it because he didn’t create us as a snake or donkey. So that we don’t have right to kill ourselves .Ask god for the solution or deliverance from the problems that is torturing you. If you ask him honestly, then definitely he will answer you but you have to ask him. Thatz what I think and believe.
