Yes I love a married Man ..Is it easy to accept this ..no it isn’t ..lots of mixed emotions ..you just fall in love with someone ..love is just love ..it just happens ..it isn’t intentional that you want to actually get into a relation with a married man..he was my best friend and I could spend hours talking to him and never realised that he is the man I was looking for ,until he decided to get married and I was still very happy that my friend is getting married .But little did I know , I have lost him forever ohh the day is come and today my friend is not going to be mine post this . I actually realised I love him the day he was getting married and I know it was just too too late . While he was destined to live a life with someone else but that does not mean the love for him will ever change . I do love him and will love him for this life and beyond.I really don’t need him and his presence .i am very happy that he is happy .I am in love with the time spent with him ,his care ,his gestures ,his thoughts and his feelings for me .Love is beyond sex ,presence and feelings .Its a soul to soul connect that will live with me for now and beyond . Yes I do love him and love him a lot ..
I dreamed that I went to heaven and GOD was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with workers.
GOD stopped in front of the first section and said,
‘ This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to GOD in prayer are received. I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many .Workers sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world. Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.
GOD then said to me, “This is the Packaging and Delivery Section.Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them.
” I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many workers working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station.
To my great surprise, only one worker was seated there, doing nothing. “This is the Acknowledgment Section, GOD quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed.” How is it that there is no work going on here? ‘ I asked.
“So sad,” GOD sighed.
“After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments”.
“How does one acknowledge God’s blessings? ” I asked.
“Simple,” god answered. Just say, “Thank you, GOD. ”
“What blessings should they acknowledge?” I asked.
“If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% people of the world.
“If you woke up this morning with more health than illness … You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day. ”
Everything happens for a reason – GOD’S TIMING

After 11th September attack , in World Trade Centre N.Y one company invited the remaining members of other companies who had been decimated by the attack on the Twin Towers to share their available office space.
At a morning meeting, the head of security told stories of why these people were alive…… and all the stories were just the ‘L I T T L E’ things.
As you might know, the head of the company survived that day because his son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One of them missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change.
One’s car wouldn’t start.
One went back to answer the telephone.
One had a child that dawdled and didn’t get ready as soon as he should have.
One couldn’t get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot.He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is ALIVE today.
Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me.I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment…*
Next timeUr morning seems to be going wrong,The children are slow getting dressed,U can’t seem to find the car keys,U hit every traffic light…
Don’t get mad or frustrated. God is at work watching over u.
May God continue to bless u with all those annoying little things & may u remember their possible purpose.
Rhonda Byrne says: “Look for the gifts in everything, especially when you are facing what appears to be a negative situation.
Everything that we attract causes us to grow, which means that ultimately everything is for our own good.”
Live Life Always Being Thankful…
With An Attitude of Gratitude. ?
I have a party to attend tonight.Since I didn’t go shopping, I am in a position tight.And in hopelessness I despair
Gosh! I have nothing to wear!
I open my wardrobe and down tumbles the suit I picked a week backI stuff it back into the overflowing rack.Oh, it’s slightly loose and needs some tucks here and there.
Gosh! I have nothing to wear!
Yes, last month I had bought a daring red evening gown.But if I wear that, the lady in red will be the talk of the town.Oh no, for such attention I do not care.
Gosh! I have nothing to wear!
How about the new black dress from the Christmas sale?It sure will look good against my complexion pale.But its sleeveless and I can’t leave my unwaxed arms bare.
Gosh! I have nothing to wear!
My daughter points at the ethnic skirt still in the shopping bag. It has to be beautiful with that exorbitant price tag.But I have no top with which to pair.
Gosh!I have nothing to wear.
I better dress casually in a pair of jeans and t shirt. But which jeans will I fit into, with my increasing girth?Well, I am not in my prime, let’s be honest and fair.
Gosh!I have nothing to wear!
My latest FabIndia kurta is out, for its not pressed.And if I wear that new saree, I will look over dressed.Now, I am really getting cold feet and a scare.
Gosh! I have nothing to wear!
Some dresses in the wardrobe are far too tight.Saved for the day when my figure is again right.Some are kept for sentimental reasons I can’t share.
Gosh! I have nothing to wear!
Being a woman is so difficult, please appreciate .This is why, while getting ready,she makes you wait.To a woman, getting dressed is a nightmare.For inspite of overflowing wardrobe out there .She will have nothing to wear.

An amazing blog on ThebetterIndia :
TBI Blogs: 5 Brilliant Schoolgirls in Bhuj Made Beds for Homeless People Using Gunny Bags, Newspapers & Cloth!
To help homeless people who sleep on the roads, students in Bhuj made beds using waste gunny bags stuffed with softened paper and cloth. The project won the ‘Quick Impact’ award at the ‘I CAN Awards 2016’ organised by Design for Change by Niharika Sanya
Students at Matruchhaya Kanya Vidyalaya in Gujarat were bothered by many problems, ranging from child labour to begging. After discussing their feelings about several such issues, they felt that the one they could pick up and address would involve helping the destitute people who could not afford to buy a roof over their heads and ended up on the footpaths of cities.Under the guidance of Vaishali H. Shah, while engaging in the ‘Imagine’ stage of the simple 4-step framework of ‘Feel-Imagine-Do-Share’ that has been developed by Design for Change – a not-for-profit organisation that challenges children to solve problems in their community – the students contemplated making small huts, or donating beds and bed-sheets, so that the homeless people could at least sleep comfortably during the long nights.
The girls followed the concept of “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. They contemplated making comfortable and cost-effective beds out of waste material like gunny bags, which people use for packing wheat and rice.
The children – Yatri Pathak, Saumya Mehta, Suhani Shah, Kesvi Bhatt, and Vidhi Thacker – collected waste gunny bags and newspaper from their neighbours and waste cloth from the local tailor. They cut and stitched together the gunny bags to make them a usable size, joining two parts to make a bed. They then made strips from the collected newspapers, moistening and then drying them to make them soft like cotton. The girls stuffed the gunny bags with these paper strips and waste cloth, also making pillows in the same manner.The students stitch gunny bags together.
The girls moistened and dried newspaper strips to make them soft like cotton.Students stuff the gunny bags with waste cloth and softened newspaper strips.Students donate the beds to the needy.The students donated the beds to the needy. The recipients were often left speechless, and shared their happiness that their children could sleep more comfortably. The girls believe that many more people can learn this simple replicable technique. They envision a model where more homeless people can find comfort in their lives, possibly through a weekly initiative to donate beds. Watch the full story here:The project went on to win the ‘Quick Impact’ award. It was amongst the top 26 stories from 3,600 Stories of Change submitted for the ‘I CAN Awards 2016’. Design for Change organised the awards in India. In light of the glaring fact that, allegedly, there are 78 million homeless people in India – owing to issues like unemployment and disability – this simple, empathetic, and scalable solution to help ease the burden on the homeless, devised by these children, lends much food for thought.
Why Do Good?
A 6 year old boy was in the market with his 4 year old sister.
Suddenly the boy found that his sister was lagging behind.
He stopped and looked back. His sister was standing in front of a toy shop and was watching something with great interest.
The boy went back to her and asked,”Do you want something ?”
The sister pointed at the doll.
The boy held her hand and like a responsible elder brother, gave that doll to her. The sister was very very happy…
The shopkeeper was watching and getting amused to see the mature behaviour of the boy.
Now the boy came to the counter and asked the shopkeeper, “What is the cost of this doll, Sir?”
The shopkeeper was a cool man and had experienced the odds of life. So he asked the boy with a lot of love n affection, “Well, What can you pay ?”
The boy took out all the shells that he had collected from sea shore, from his pocket and gave them to the shopkeeper. The shopkeeper took the shells and started counting as if he were counting the currency. Then he looked at the boy.The boy asked him worriedly, “Is it less?”
The shopkeeper said, “No, No. hese are more than the cost. So I will return the remaining.” Saying so, he kept only 4 shells with him and returned the remaining.
The boy, very happily kept those shells back in his pocket and went away with his sister.
A servant in that shop got very surprised watching all these. He asked his master,” Sir ! You gave away such a costly doll just for 4 shells ???”
“The shopkeeper said with a smile,” Well, For us these are mere shells. But for that boy, these shells are very precious. And at this age he does not understand what money is, but when he will grow up, he definitely will. And when he would remember that he purchased a doll with the Shells instead of Money, he will remember Me and hopefully, believe that world is full of Good people.

After having his breakfast and with no comments, the son also left home for office. That day and night the son pondered over curd matter.Next day the son requested his father to accompany him to the court to get married.
His father told him “I do not need a second marriage at this age and I give you all the love, you do not need a mother.What is the use of the second marriage ?”
The son replied him politely…father I am not getting a mother for myself or a wife for you….i am only trying my best so that you get your bowl of curd everyday.
From tomorrow me and my wife will move to a rented apartment and I shall work in your office as a worker who will be paid wages,so that your daughter in law knows the value of a bowl of curd.
Parents can be ATM cards for their children but children need to be adhar cards for their parents…..
What is maturity?by Adi Shankaracharya1. Maturity is when you stop trying to change others, …instead focus on changing yourself.
- Maturity is when you accept people as they are.
- Maturity is when you understand everyone is right in their own perspective.
- Maturity is when you learn to “let go”.
- Maturity is when you are able to drop “expectations” from a relationship and give for the sake of giving.
- Maturity is when you understand whatever you do, you do for your own peace.
- Maturity is when you stop proving to the world, how intelligent you are.
- Maturity is when you don’t seek approval from others.
- Maturity is when you stop comparing with others.
- Maturity is when you are at peace with yourself.
- Maturity is when you are able to differentiate between “need” and “want” and are able to let go of your wants.
And the last but most meaningful !
- You gain Maturity when you stop attaching “happiness” to material things !!
Wishing you all a happy matured life.
