Another week starts and just a few more days for me to relax.by the week end i will be joining for duty after a long break and i'm preparing myself to get adjusted to the hectic schedule.the very thought,'back to work' makes me sick.iam so used to laze around these days with my time spending in balcony,enjoying my morning tea,looking at the boats n ships sailing in the sea,observing the life style of people staying in the small houses on the other side of the road,the activities of the fisherfolk,the way they shout in a language alien to me,the sparrows chirping and conveying so many messages and the crows on the swaying coconut leaves,the beautiful flowers in the garden downstairs-leaving all these behind,getting up in the wee hours of the
morning,struggling to leave home on time,life is going to be different now.anu was not like this;for her work is worship and she always loves to walk that extra mile to excel in profession causing jealousy in colleagues.
But i am excited for personal reasons.and sunday evening calls from maza across the seas gets me recharged for the whole week.thanks a million,dear.
Here i want to share a forwarded mail with you.generally,we forget to count our blessings and the same thing repeatedly i ask my clients to write down as a positive measure.
If you woke up this morning with more health than illness,you are more blessed than the million who won't survive the week.
If you have never experienced the danger of battle,the loneliness of imprisonment,the agony of torture or the pangs of starvation,you are ahead of 20 million people around the world.
If you have food in your refrigerator,clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep,you are richer than 75% of this world.
If you have money in the bank,in your wallet, and spare change in a dish some place, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.
If you hold up your head with a smileon your face and are truly thankful,you are blessed because the majority can,but most do not.
If you can hold someone's hand, hug themor even touch them on the shoulder,you are blessed because you canoffer God's healing touch.
If you can read this message,you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read anything at all.
You are so blessed in ways you may never even know.
