“When Known Hearts Meet”
“When known hearts meet after a long, long time, the joy derived is so much; even the ocean falls short”
The other day with my family I had a chance to meet or rather made it a point to meet, which was pending since long. We had number of times missed the opportunity to meet these loved ones, who were an extended family.
Over a period of time, I should say almost four decades of friendship and sharing of family values. We till today cherish the days we shared along with the elders in the family. Both being business families did have their ups and downs, so the family moved to a nearby town and have been living there.
My father was a favourite of them and always brought joy to everyone. They had loved his company and he being a foodie was served delicious food by them. They even invited us all for dinners, breakfast or lunch. They in return were invited by us and that was real joy. We all used to go on short trips and picnics.
After they moved from our town it so happened that they lost the elders and we our father. Now, except our mother and their mother all elders have gone.
When we went to their home we were overwhelmingly received and served with Bhel Puri and kachoris ( Indian Snacks) we spent about 4 hours with them, while leaving we did all the pranams, namasthe while hugging my wife our old aunty expressed “Hum itna khush hain ke samundar bhi kam padta hai” ( “it is so joyful that even the ocean falls short”) I was moved by the words and today I present it as Quote for you all.
Hope and Confidence
Hope gets tickled
Confidence recharges it
The moment it goes down every time
Hope gets tickled by its own self, and puts the situation into a dilemma. Confidence brings assurances and makes it sound and strong. The battery of Hope gets down; when there is a full confidence of getting things done, it naturally recharges it.
Let Hope and Confidence come to ALL on this eve of Merry Christmas
ADJUST ACCEPT ADOPT
ADJUST not, nor
ADJUST ACCEPT ADOPT
GOOD BETTER BEST
We normally find ourselves under situations where there is a change, which demands an attitude from us. So, under such circumstances what stand do we take is so very important. There are always options left as to what further actions we are to take.
A very thin line exists between these words though they sound rather the same but they are tricky. I am therefore giving the nearest synonyms to them below.
We may ADJUST to the conditions, but we will not fully agree or have something in the background of our mind that things should or would have been different.
We shall ACCEPT but still go ahead with the situation not agreeing on certain aspects.
We will ADOPT with full consent of our mind and devote to the circumstances like how we would adopt a child as our own.
By Adopting we would be more Satisfied and Happy.
Synonyms of ADJUST
Accommodate, Accustom, Regulate, Modify
Synonyms of ACCEPT
Obtain, Acquire, Welcome
Synonyms of ADOPT
Adapt, Appropriate, Endorse, Embrace
The Asking stops
The Learning to say NO!!!
Mind the inner sunshine
Sun the outer
They have brighter and hazy moments
Both covered by their own dark clouds
Once they get cleared
They glow and outshine
While reading “Deb of Once Upon a Hotflash” blog I came across this ‘Post’ of hers, on which I was inspired to write this above Quote, I therefore give the honor of this Post to Deb, My Friend and fellow blogger. Thanks Deb!
Hope you like it, rest shall keep discussions on the commentary page. Have a shiny day
Good Deeds Oblige
10 Good Deeds done
1 or 2 might be known to have paid back
100s are unknown to have paid back
Therefore do not stop doing Good Deeds
Nature shall not keep the debt and shall oblige
