Count your blessings

Count your blessings. This is something I always say. I might forget it at times. But then something or the other happens to remind me of this and I begin to count my blessings once more.

That is something that happened to me the day before. I was casually discussing the weekend that was with one of my friends when she mentioned that she is very sad every year during Rakshabandhan because she has no brother. I casually mentioned, what about cousins and she shook her head. That’s when I realized how lucky I was to have a younger brother, who by the general standards of younger brothers qualifies to be an angel! And over the years, having gotten so used to celebrating Rakhabandhan and Bhaidooj, I kind of forgot the significance of it. The fact that we are able to celebrate this occasion is every year is a big big thing. Thank God for that. Even bigger is the fact that we have been celebrating it together every year for the last two decades. Touchwood!!!! I counted my blessings that day and thanked God from the bottom of my heart. I also silently thanked my friend who made me realize about this blessing, something I had begun taking for granted.

 I pray that all of us never forget the small blessings we have…

  1. You know what I thought you have not updated this page and I supposed to here to say so but 🙂

    The same kind of post I posted today but it different perspective.

    God bless your brother (though I don’t know his name) and you. Both of you keep celebrating Raksha Bandhan and Bhai Dooj every year like this.

    Beautiful post – Direct Dil se and Dil tak panhuch gai

  2. Yea, you are lucky to have a brother. I never had a sister but had 11 cousin sisters, who made sure I never missed Raksha Bandhan without tieing the Rakhri. Yesterday also got my rakhri from India with mithai send by my cousin. I was so happy coz I forgot to bring mithai and somehow she had the hitch that I would, so send that along…lol. Anyways, cherish such small blessings…

  3. To the optimists, all these smalls together, makes the world a great place.

    In the surrounded darkness , the yellow and red intermingled fingers – radiates gently so much of expressions – nice picture SF.

  4. It’s true.Many a times(actually most of the time) we forget that our guiding force…God is with us ….and does not leave our side even for a moment.It’s only that we do not acknowledge this fact and crib over petty things.
    So yes,we should count our blessings.
