Hello dear all, near and far! I hope you all are making the most of the chilly winter this year.
Those of you witnessing snow..and lots of snow.. you are lucky, you must believe that you are abundantly blessed! While those of you who are just screaming out.. cold.. when the temperatures are as high as 20 degrees, like in Bangalore, well.. you can’t be more silly.
Alright.. of late, I’ve been sick and now in the process of recovery from this so-called Hepatitis A and Jaundice. Guys, don’t ask me what I ate, because I usually freak out on the food without much concern about the hygiene.. and I live in India.
Okay. Lesson learnt.
So it was this Hepatitis A and those symptoms. yuck! A week in the hospital followed by lavish treatment from Mum. Oh, if and when I recover, the credit goes to her. (and of course the neighbors whom she troubled often to buy and bring the necessary things which she herself sometimes could not due to her knee problems).
I believe that whatever happens always makes you stronger than before. I learnt some interesting things which I’d like to really tell you.
- You can cook almost everything for your daily meals without oil.
- More than the medicines, its the natural foods that helps heal & recover faster.
- When you are not well, its not only you who suffer, but there are many who truly wish that you regain the energy and get back to life.
- Friends make a valuable difference that speed up the recovery.
- Thoughts about your past happiness and success stories. They cure the present illness.
- Be thankful. Always.
Of course, there hasn’t been anything else more exciting.. A wonderful well-planned trip to himalayan got cancelled, darn! I would have otherwise witnessed snow!!
I am now back to work though and back to reading from all of you. [There was no internet back home]. I missed Kathy Drue and the stories from the woods. I thought about Barbara Rodger’s grand daughter and I was wondering if she has put any pictures of the cutie pie. I was thinking about Karma (Karen) and hoped that I haven’t missed any of the photography challenges. I also thought about Isabel and the winter in Europe. Most importantly I hoped not to miss out on the winter blogs from most of you!
