June 22, 2020

Do you know anything which cannot be bought, but can be felt…GUESS????

Is it happiness, On 17th June I was gazing through my house window; near my house there lives a poor family and there is a small puddle there. They made a small boat out of a cut plastic drum, a piece of wood and a rope. They both attached the piece of wood to the drum with the rope and made a cute boat. A small best out of waste masterpiece made by a child.

 Happiness is something that lies in every aspect of life, it needs to be enjoyed to the fullest. Life gives us many possibilities to be jolly. Smile a day can keep you miles away from the regular negative happenings.

                                                          “Life is too short to not to enjoy”

Twists and turns make life adventurous, but happiness makes it magical. Even if we see small pups or cow grazing peacefully our mind suddenly gets pleasant.

It was Father’s Day this week on 21st June. I was willing to make a cake did not get time at all. For each daughter her dad is her hero, lifeline and the person of life. A dad is a person who is overprotective towards his child and too sensitive mentally. My dad for me is a superhero, I follow him, he took me in his hands when I was an infant. He did so many things for me, but I was never able to thank him….

        So today I would Like to say: I love you dad. Thank you for everything you gave me and fulfilling my every wish.
