My journal of Smiles :) …Lucks

Friends, this is my treasure chest, where I keep my riches. What are these valued possessions? My smiles!!!

Things and people that make me smile everyday are my most prized gems.


What made me happy today?

1. A photograph of my mother, enjoying her walk with my brother and his family at their place near Porbandar, Gujrat. To see her walking after being so seriously ill, was a great moment. This is the first time, since her illness in April this year, that she has traveled out of Bombay.

2. I visited the Shilpotsav yesterday, and found these pretty orange cups and fell in love with them instantly. Their unique shape intrigued me and I had to get them home.

3. I cracked open these three perfect and whole walnuts successfully, early in the morning and felt so happy to have done it. πŸ™‚

These are a few of the things which made my day…

What are your lovely moments? Share with me and spread the cheer…

    I received two messages from a special friend πŸ˜‰

    We just had our journal released today πŸ™‚ YEY! It came packed and ready to be shipped to Vietnam πŸ™‚

    I was able to bring copies to my Editor-in-chief.

    Then when I came home, I had a hearty lunch while everybody was out.

    I saw one of my Satur-dates and told her that we have classes this afternoon.And we shall go together for Mass later.

    I saw Roy Durham's post that his book will be published :D…double smiles for that πŸ™‚

    I was able to make a letter to Sancheeta, I hope she replies soon.

    I have time to write the author of the book I read.

    I have time to pray and read blogs :)…

    plus…lots more πŸ™‚

  4. @Melissa, thank you for sharing your blessings here with us. I am so happy for you and congrats on your magazine coming out. Friends make everyone's days, it's great to have good friends. Have a lovely Sunday, thanks for the compliment.

If we give thanks for all the little things we get in life these keep getting bigger and one fine day our lives are full of happiness and love.Remember sad things but occasionally πŸ™‚ Thank you for your most amazing comment.

  6. It's still really early in the morning here, but so far, finding many sweet comments on my blog made me feel happy and cared about.

    Then finding your post, seeing your mom recovering, the cute cups, and those perfect walnuts that look like little brains, all made me remember to be grateful and to enjoy the little things.
    Thank you for that this morning.
    Hugs & Blessings,

  7. Smiling here. At christmas time one of our customs is to buy a large pack of nuts. Throughout this festive period i try so hard to crack open my 2 favourites without breaking the nut – i'm yet to succeed with either the brazil or walnut. This year i'll crack it right.

  8. Sweet & Simple — This made me smile from ear to ear. The quote at the end is perfect! Also, inspires me to look at my day through a similar lens — thank you! Blessings!

  9. Sulekha I clearly remember commenting..anyway here I go again..First of all I loved seeing your pictures…and it really made a difference to my day,teaching me to enjoy the simple things life has to offer.My day had nothing unique..just another lazy Sunday,the only highlight being a hair spa..

  10. I've smiled today…laughed, snuggled with my little one's, hugged & told my guy that I love him before he left to run an errand and I took a nap.

    I read this and got teary eyed because I know the feeling of watching someone sick…and when I saw the sweet, sweet picture of your Momma tears came to my eyes.

    Thank you for reminding me of all that I am grateful to have in my life!

  11. Smiling at simple things… Today I cleaned my office and cleared out a bunch of stuff I no longer need. It was hard work, yet rewarding. Still, a simple act.

    Love the photo of your mom! I wish her well!

  12. I love the photo of your mother and glad to know she is doing better. Aging parents is a whole new play book, isn't it?

    Yes, I've smiled today – a lot! The cups you bought made me smile – they are the neatest ones I've ever seen.

    And, it is, sometimes, the simplest things that bring us the best smiles.


  13. @Leah, Yes sweet comments on our blogs makes our day happy πŸ™‚ Thanks for making mine wonderful My mother is a fighter and I am so thankful to god for giving her back to us. The cups are cute too, right? Little things make a world of a difference.

  14. @Larry, I tried cracking open the walnuts shells today again but failed πŸ™‚ Thanks for the visit and your comment. Try and you shall succeed, god bless.

  15. @Alpana, Thanks for commenting again, though what happened to your earlier comment, god knows!! Hair spa is not a little thing my dear, enjoy these tiny moments of joy and they will make your life wonderful.

  16. @Sonia, Thank you for your sweet compliment, my mom is a beauty πŸ™‚ Wish I can be half as pretty as her at her age. Appreciate your wonderful comment.

  17. @Amy, Welcome to my blog and thank you for your wonderful comment. You had a happy day, congrats. Life is beautiful, let's live it queen size πŸ™‚

  18. @Jamie, Cleaning out office is great and therapeutic too.Lovely moment there, welcome to my blog and thanks for commenting. Thank you for your wishes for my Mom.

  19. For me it was being at the Kundalini Yoga festival in Rishikesh and getting the chance to sit by the ganges and dangle my legs in her cold waves. to see the sunset while listening to the live performance by a couple of known artists…

  20. @Savira, WOW… love your happy moments.Hope you have many more like those, god bless and thanks for the visit and comment.

  21. It's the small, simple things in life that can cause our hearts to smile the biggest smiles. Loved the pic of your mom…and the cups are super cool! I'd love a set of those at our house!

    ~blessings and peace

  22. Today, it is still relatively early but good reading with hot coffee has made me happy. Yesterday, I found a stack of photos of my daughter when she was really young and that was a highlight for me πŸ™‚

  23. This made me smile! Smiles can brighten up any day and I have seen so many times when we get very unfriendly people at the hostel how smiles can turn a situation around. People are not appreciating the little things in life any more that makes us smile…great post!

  24. @Jim, welcome back and thanks for your comment. Phyllis and the cats are lucky to have you smiling at them and I am sure you make them smile too.

  25. Sulekkha, this post makes me smile! How lovely to read that your mum is feeling better and is able to go out on her walk! Those wonderful cups! It's no wonder you had to bring them home! Roxy makes me smile and giggle. So does my son. He's away for five whole days so I'm afraid I'm a bit sad but he did make me smile before he left! πŸ™‚

  26. @Bella, welcome to my blog, after a long time πŸ™‚ Lovely reasons for your smiles, love them. Thanks for your wonderful compliments. Love to Roxy…
