T for being Thankful

Happy Tuesday to everyone

Here I'm, Thankful for being able to do yet another post for Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday.
I thought today I'll also stress on T for being Thankful.
I'm Thankful for all the little and big blessings that are showered upon me.

Thankful for the kids settling down in their new schools, especially my little one  who has adjusted so well to his new surroundings.

Thankful for all of you who sent their kind and encouraging words last week when I was sitting here all worried thinking about my son's first day of pre-school.

Thankful for the watercolor class that I joined last week. Yes! this is the painting that I did in yesterday's class. I'm so happy to have done this. Usually I like painting flowers and anything related to nature. Yesterday, I just moved out of my comfort zone and did this taxi cab. I knew my sons would love it and they did!

Thankful for the daily routine in which my days are passing. I prefer some order in the day to day events. Unexpected changes make me go into panic mode.  

Thankful for all the people that I've now in my life. We meet different kinds of people in our journey.And I love to take in all such experiences  thus: There is always something good to learn from each and every person who come across in life.

Thankful for my yesterdays, and especially for this moment.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week
Thank you for being here

    WOW that taxi painting is so dang cute and soooo GOOD!! I bet the boys loved it, you should make another one and put them in their rooms. Good for you going outside your comfort zone and doing something new. YAY!!
