Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Gratitude!

In response to Kat’s twittering tale # 148 to write a tale in 280 characters or less.

A pilot for a decade now, this was a routine sortie for Jim. The sudden technical snag led the chopper to nose dive. Experience helped him crash land safely.

The brush with death changed his perspective to life. He started living each day of life to the fullest, with gratitude!

      Yes Deepika. We do take many things for granted. Only an incident like this shakes us up and acts as a reminder to be grateful for so much in life.

    We pray to God like beggers instead of say to God thank you what you have.

      I absolutely agree with you. Gratitude for blessings in so often replaced by greed for more. Thanks Divyen for stopping by!
