So, What Are You Thankful For?

Every day is a blessing.

The first time, when I learnt about ‘The Thanksgiving Day,’ I was curious about the significance of this festival. Thanks to the technology, I was able to understand the importance of this wonderful festival, by Googling it.

As I understand, the festival is celebrated to be grateful for everything we have in this mortal world. Have a sense of gratitude, and express it, by words and deeds. I liked the reasons and why not?

We have the habit of taking the things we have, for granted, rather than expressing our appreciation or gratitude for it. We must do it as much as we can.

The idea of celebrating festivals in India or anywhere else in the World, is to celebrate the gift of life, to spend quality time with the loved ones, family and friends, to spread happiness. And whenever we do all this, good food and decorations are obviously there.

What’s the benefit of doing all these celebrations?

The benefits are rejuvenation, and the generation of plenty of positive energy and positive thoughts.

The thought of expressing gratitude for what we have in life is amazing. When you start counting your blessings, you will be amazed.

The Sunshine, the moonlight, the river, the seas, the rains, the crops, the forests, food, home and the list is endless.

Not to forget, Our freedom and our education.

Then our family, parents, spouse, children, siblings, friends— again the list goes on.

So, what are you thankful for in life? Please mention in the comments.

Happy Thanksgiving Day. 🙏🙏🌺🌺

The Colours of Nature—Poem

Vibrant and fragrant,

Bright and jubilant,

Oh! The lovely hues,

Affluence overloaded,

Some flamboyant, others shy,

Some fiery, others delicate,

I bow to the ultimate artist,

Feeling alive, and calm,

My soul in sync, with the creator.

Climbing Up—Poem

Planted on the ground,

They move up and around,

No fear of falling on the ground,

They remain uncrowned,

But they inspire me to climb,

Their beauty makes me spellbound.
