As I jot down this post, I am grinning ear to ear
I have butterflies in my tummy, really huge ones, jumping around, making me feel goose !!!
It has been ages I wrote down something, a long time for someone like me, who needs to vent out quite often
Ohh yess ! I do whine a lot !!
Ahh well! Something made me smile today, and I had to share it with my extended family here

My girl, got this really nice book from her school library few days back. Being too busy with the chores I didn’t notice it lying on the desk for almost a day ! ( Okay, I did clean the desk, but it still went unnoticed )
It was only before parting for the bed, did I notice how the book was molding her thought process !!!
She got off her bed, walked to her school bag and brought out something. While I was too sleepy and almost cross at her not letting me switch off the lights, she smiled, walked up to me and handed me a bunch of flowers saying – “Mamma, I love you !!!”.
I was stunned ! At loss of words ! Coz what I was thinking was, I would scold her for climbing down the bed at this hour of night and make so much of noise.
She then hugged me, and kissed me goodnight….
As she slept peacefully, with her lips curved into a smile, she looked like an angel ! I just felt blessed
Later that night, I took the book myself and read it all in one go.
It is a must read book for kids and also for frowning mums like me, who forget to notice the little bundles of happiness in our lives.

A day back, I was at my earlier workplace, trying to get at it once again.
Although, things didn’t fall into place, something happened that made me smile
The receptionist, an old friend, was just casually inquiring of my kids and how were they doing at studies. She couldn’t believe her ears, when I told her, I had two kiddos, who kept me on toes all day. Her jaw dropped, and the only words that came out were - Teacher, how do you maintain yourself ?!!!! You look too young to be a mother of two !
I just couldn’t stop laughing out loud ! We chuckled, and I had to spill the beans to her !
I told her – Have kids and you’ll know how they help you maintain yourself
While walking back home, I just realised, how I was missing out on yoga, I had always been obsessed with !!!
An immediate decision, yess, I am starting yoga again ! That is what keeps me in shape and in peace of mind
( Who doesn’t love to collect compliments anyways )

I have recently moved into my new home sweet little home of my own !
The house still demands a lot of arrangements, but I am at it already, and will finish it by month end… hopefully
Those who went through my earlier post, know how I had been struggling all these days, to get into a stable state of mind.
The things are starting to get straight again, and I am becoming more positive each day.
A big thank you to all of you, who wished me luck, said good words and prayed for me !! You guys keep me going

Here I shared the little joys of my life
