Thank you James for Nominating me for a blog where I can describe some things that make me happy. This subject of finding joy in our small day to day happenings is so close to my heart πŸ’–

Rules and Regulations of this Tag :

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.

2. List fifteen of your small joys.

3. Nominate Five other Blogger Friends who bring you joy.

Here I go:

1. Dawn: I love to watch dawn. It is such a joy to sit in my terrace and watch the changing colours of the sky and beginning of life. Early mornings are so divine – I love the peace and the quietude and the serenity of the mornings. Pure bliss. Chirping of the birds; listening to their chirping and witnessing their joyous dancing and flying around to entertain me – brings me heavenly joy.

2. Fruits: Eating fruits in the morning is another source of joy for me. How can one peel an orange and not get filled with love and joy of God. I am a happy Fruitarian πŸ’–πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

3. Meditation: The days my meditation is deep and sweet brings such joy. I look forward to this joy every morning and evening. From Joy I have come; in Joy I live and in that sacred Joy I shall melt again. πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ

4. Tea: A cup of Darjeeling leaf tea is heavenly after the morning fruits and meditation. I look forward to this joy with my breakfast everyday β˜•οΈπŸ˜Šβ˜•οΈ

5. Watching my granddaughter laughing and giggling when she is streaming 😊😍

6. Arms around my neck from behind by my princess πŸ€—

7. Family meals and light hearted chatter 😊

8. Smell of Freshly baked πŸŽ‚

9. A hot cup of tea with pakoras (popular Indian snack) during rainsπŸŒ§β˜•οΈ

10. Reading a good book or a blog and writing

11. A clear starry night 🌌

12. Watching a rainbow 🌈

13. Walking with cool breeze brushing against my face.

14. Watching clouds. The way clouds play with each other is mesmerising. They tell so many tales.

15. Watching flower laden trees – Gulmohar and Magnolia

My nominees: There are so many bloggers from all over the world who bring me joy. As per rules I am nominating these 5, with whom I have interacted more recently with so much joy πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

1. Sweeti’s Saba is the sweetest, my princess and my soul mate. We started our blogging journey about the same time last year. I love it when she calls me her beloved uncle πŸ’–

2. Noorien: Have met this young and fun loving blogger recently. It makes me so happy when she calls me her young friendπŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

3. Barbara: She is the twin sister of my soul mate and is bound to bring me joy. She is immensely talented and full of energy πŸ˜‡

4. Sushmita: When I thank her for her kindness and love she always tells me not to thank her all the time. She tells me: Uncle it is natural to care for people one loves. What a joy.πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

5. Karlien: Have met her recently and have had many joyous interactions.

As per rules I could nominate only 5 bloggers but you too bring me joy 😊 Would love to hear which small day to day happenings bring you joy.

No time to read.
