    We all are blessed but the probkemi
    Is that some of us count their blessings while others count their struggles, challenges and obstacles

    If I look back I can understand how much God has blessed me in every stage of life. He blessed me first of all with loving parents , then education.

    Every woman dream about their life partner. I also dreamt that I should be married to a handsome man, with a good degree and good job with a high post and a posh house. I was little disappointed that my dream was not fulfilled. I did not think I will be married to a big family where cooking is more important than having a good job for a woman. After marriage when I entered a chawl I was so shocked . But slowly I understood that I have to adjust to this life. God gave me patience . Though it was a big family all were very loving .
    Had to wait three years to have a child. Someone from my family and a friend had said I won't have children. But by God's grace I had 3 children in three and a half years we had to struggle to bring them up but God has as with us and they got a good job and got married at the right time. Now they are well settled.

    Was feeling bad that grandchildren are not with us but then understood that God did not want us to struggle in old age .Now a days staying with children and grandchildren children is a big challenge and parents should have lot of patience and understand their children's problem. They have many challenge to face in the office as well as in bringing up children. So they are more tensed than us. Sometimes they show their anger to their parents as they know they will understand.

    We are blessed that we are living alone and enjoying our retired life though some health problems are there . But we keep ourselves active and go for religious functions and temples.

    Count your blessings with gratitude no matter how small or big they are
    and stop letting your lacks blindfold you from noticing how blessed .you are

    Through experience I realised that having a posh house, hifi job is nothing compared to leading a simple life with happiness and peace.

    This I learnt from my husband who leads a simple life, doing.social service and never expecting anything from anyone. Because he saved for the future by spending only for what is necessary we are able to live peaceful retired life. Sometimes I feel we should save for the future but we should enjoy our life also. Each one's way of thinking is different

    Pray to God to keep us healthy and happy and give a peaceful death when time comes

    Kudos to you. You had beautifully explained how simplicity leads to peaceful robust life in later years .
    2. Every moment humans are blessed by the Unknown. If we encounter problem one after another it is because of blessings in the previous moment(s).
    3. Otherwise how to explain persons caliber and or behaviour sans experience.
    4. So it follows every problem or difficulty or hurdle or puzzle is truly blessing of God accounted in His book KARMA or more correctly said Prarabhtha karma.
    5. With this thought in mind, whoever proceeds with actions shall reap rich rewards later but not belated.
    Regards.
    God has designed From making it in the womb right up to grave, beings have to perform which entails hurdles obstacles and hardship. Some take it as learning experience and move ahead. Some spend their rest of life mourning about it.

    :hello:Sir,
    Besides enjoying Lol, I wish to state that It is a ticklish task to count to infinity.
    Regards.
    God dwells at closer proximity yet He is at infinity.

    "Sometimes they show their anger to their parents as they know they will understand."

    This line really caught my attention, we as children should really stop doing that. understood this when my mom made it very clear and gave me good piece of her mind" lats time when i tried to tease her something unnecessary.

    for the first time i told my brother that i was scared of mom...like really scared.

    As always sweet post ViJi mA! the pearls of wisdom are neatly hidden for readers to chose and take /decide.

    :)
