    Dear Vijiakka,

    A very sound words of wisdom from you to lead the life counting the blessings and practice simplicity. I am not tired of saying this many times and I have to say it again that your husband is a great example of how to lead a simple life focusing the attention to serve others. Simplicity can be achieved from having what we need to lead our daily lives instead of having what we want.

    My father led a very simple life as well. He taught me how simple life is all in the mind and to become a trustee of everything we possess. The contentment comes naturally as we achieve our goals in life.

    Viswa

    :hello: I wish to add to my above FB:
    2. Inside the cocoon the grotesque looking caterpillar under metamorphosis soon turns into beautiful butterfly in about 21 days. During this transformation, it must be kicking or flapping its fragile wings several hundreds of times to break the cocoon to come out to freedom and fly.

    3. But if some samaritan seeing the plight of butterfly-in-the-making helps it by breaking the cocoon and let it free, the butterfly soon collapses. Why?

    4. Yes - You guessed it right. The flapping inside cocoon is to make the wings strong and steady. The seemingly hardship designed for its strength. So also in other beings, The Great Designer created the in built mechanism called -hardship for its future strength and vigour.

    5. Therefore hence life seemed to entail hardship.

    Regards.
    God is the greatest designer.

    I loved your description and your ready acceptance of the changes that happened in your life. May you find the balance between securing your future plus enjoying the present. God bless!

    So true Vijima. Sometimes we fail to count our blessings and constantly keep cribbing about things which we don’t have. Having a peaceful retired life is also blessing
