Sunday Poser # 1

This is a trial run. If people like it, I will make it a weekly feature.

This week’s my query is;

This has been a challenging year for a number of reasons. So what is one thing that you’re grateful for this year?

• I am grateful for a number of things this year. I was staying with my elder daughter as she was on the final stages of completing her PhD degree, when the pandemic turned our world upside down. But after 5 months, I managed to travel back to Pakistan, safe and disease free.

• My daughter completed her Doctorate and has also come back with her son to live with us.

• Despite the second wave of Covid, my family and friends are safe and healthy as are my blogging friends.

• I have learned some valuable lessons during this pandemic;

– Don’t plan too far into the future

– Don’t buy too much stuff or hoard things

– Life is unpredictable so try to live every moment.

These are things I am grateful for what are things that you are grateful for in this year?

Please share your answers in comments or create your own post and answer this question.

Looking forward to your feedback.

    1. I wish you all the best my friend for your medical degree. It works well when you develop a keen interest in your courses. Thanks a lot for sharing your reasons for being grateful. I wish you and your family the joy of a new baby.

  2. The things I was grateful for pre-pandemic (family, kitty, work, writing, reading) have become more important to me and I value them even more than before. I’m grateful for this newfound sense of priorities, which reshuffled other stuff lower in my list, such as friends, playing games, going out to eat/movies. I still would like to do those things, but I don’t miss them that much. I’m grateful for my introversion and ability to be fine when spending vast amounts of time alone. In an indirect way, this was due to my upbringing, so I’m grateful for my lonely childhood, which toughened me up!

    1. You’re right, Paula that through this crisis, most of us have to re-write our list of priorities. Family and children, specially grandkids are very important. And going out is good but can be put off till things are under control. Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts.

  3. Today I am grateful that although I have a sister and a brother (and their families) who live in very hot spots for the virus, they are (so far) safe and disease free. I worry a lot about them as they live in the greater Toronto area, an area that is being hit hard (again) as the second wave threatens to swamp health care systems.

    I am grateful that we live in a city that has been largely untouched by the pandemic – leastwise we’ve had relatively few cases compared with many cities in the world.

    I am grateful that I am still healthy enough to care for my hubby, who isn’t.

    I am grateful to connect with others, if only online. Those connections help preserve my mental health and my joy.

    I am grateful to have more blessings than I can reasonably list here.

  4. I am grateful for all of the challenges of my life preparing me to handle this year with relative ease. I’m grateful to be able to offer help and hope to any who need it.
    I’m grateful that my daughters and friends are safe and healthy.

    I’m grateful for every bit of laughter and joy, every day!

  5. Mmm. Such an important question. I am grateful for each moment, every one of them. I am grateful for our beautiful sons and their continued health, grateful for my always helping me learn more about myself wife of 20-years, grateful for my passionate and determined colleagues and team, grateful for my wonderful and inspirational blogging community, grateful for my continued health, grateful for all of my friends, and my best friend of 30 years, grateful for my large extended family, and for my loving mother and sisters in Los Angeles. Phew. So much to be grateful for. Thank you for that, Sadje. Have a great week. 🙂

  6. I am grateful to have a roof over my head and food on the table… some people don’t this year with all the layoffs and closings. And most of all glad my family has all been safe from Covid!
