Have you ever received a surprise gift, but failed to smile?
Can you even hide the joy of that receiving from your face in the first few seconds of receiving?
And can you explain that why?
If you could explain that, I might find the reasons why I blog in it.. 😉
For it’s the simple joy of surprise to me, when I could string together few words in a certain order..
And when I read back, I do enjoy the flow and there is some sense of accomplishment in it..
The wonderful drug of acceptance and appreciation, is not being wasted on me..
They nourish me, helps me grow and feel confident in myself..
I started blogging to express..
Now I’m blogging to experience..
I had no expectations or even today have no goals for my blog..
But the time here is wonderful and addictive..
Oh now my dear long time followers must be wondering why am I saying all this now, as in repeating what I’ve written in my about pages and few past posts..
Today something happened..
I have this habit of writing notes to my very close friends on every special occasion possible.. But only one of them returns the favour in writing notes to me, while others express in their own ways..
Today I got a hand written, heart felt, thank you note, from someone..
Is that all for a simple note? No.. It’s the gesture and reason for that note..
A very simple act of kindness, which costed me nothing, which I did, simply just because I could, and the help was sincerely accepted and appreciated to what it deserves and a little bit more..
When someone takes the time to put down pen to paper actually, it does mean a lot..
And there is another happiness in this event to the sender too.. It’s the happiness of making someone happy..
To see a bright smile lighten up in the face of receiver is multiplied when we are the one who planted that smile..
Not only mercy is twice blessed, even gifting and gratitude is twice blessed..
So what this has to do with my blogging?
Here is a thank you note from me, to you, the reader..
For just being there and showering me with happiness.. 🙂
Because, this ripples is just a set of reaction to the drops in this lake.. And hence I’m nothing without your visits and drops.. 😉
Let me plant a smile on your face to brighten your day, and let that ripple forward with ripples of laughter.. 🙂
Keep Smiling.. 🙂
