I have been blessed with a loving family, growing up with them has been a wonderful nurturing experience. They are surely one of the best gift God gave me. I thank God everyday for my husband. He is one of the best thing that ever happened to me. My opportunity to finish my study not in a very difficult way was unexpected, since I grew up in a big and not so wealthy family. It was sure God's doing. I thank God for friends who makes me smile and is present in times of need. I thank God for my church family who has been instrumental for me in knowing God better and has been an encouragement in many ways than I can imagine. I thank God for my two dogs, they always brought smile and gladness to my heart. I thank God for the resources and provisions He is giving us daily. He surely provides and He never fails. I thank God for my work. It was an opportunity to impact lives of many students. I thank God for the privilege of serving Him, I never thought I can do it. Ahhh, and the list goes on... How about you? You can start now... :)

Well, I was mostly alone, and at times with my father's friends, or my relatives. It was difficult blending into different environments, and I did prefer to be alone as I was pampered more by my parents when alone. :-) But no regrets. I learnt a lot. I see it as I have a wider view of things, and therefore, I make wiser selection of what I want in my life. It is a blessing in disguise. I also had tough times, and colleagues who were always interfering with my personal life as if that is the way I am supposed to live. I definitely did not like that. But now that i am at home, and still earning a fair amount, I feel happy that god gave me enough to be in this stage, while my ex colleagues continue to bicker amongst themselves. I am quite at peace with myself, and my parent is there for me at all times. Had i not known the hardships, I would not have appreciated what I have now. Like everybody, I too underwent love phase. But they did not materialize. In retrospect, I would have to adjust to a lot, knowing what is really my nature. And forego a lot as well. So I guess, god took right decisions for me at the right stage, even though I was pretty cut up with him most of the time. Thank u god for bringing me here. I just wish he will keep me healthy, wealthy, and happy from here on. :-)

It seems that you did not have a life on bed of roses and yet you see and decide to be thankful. That is a very commendable trait. Being happy in life does not depend on what you have or where you are and what you are doing. In starts in you deciding to appreciate the things that is on your hand right now and make the best use of it. I believe you are a wonderful person and I know God has a bright and promising future ahead of you...
