Gratitude Challenge – Day One

She threw me a challenge.

That’s right, she did it yesterday. But then she thought it was a “challenge”.   I don’t think it is. It is so simple for me. Here are my reasons.

1- Am grateful to my parents for teaching me so many things. Especially my dad Pitcheswara Rao Atluri. Though I got to know him for only may be 5 or 6 years. But he is still around who inspires me to do the things that I am doing now.

2 – To my mother, a young housewife who became a widow, fought against extremely tough odds all alone to bring me up and offer me the best within her means.

3 – To my wife who loved me more than anything else in her life , even while fighting valiantly a losing battle gave her all to offer me the best she could until her last breath from a bed she knew she would retire early from this life.

I am also grateful to all those men and women who continue to teach me what life is all about and help me lead a full and better life.

Oh I guess I will have to nominate two individuals for this “Gratitude Challenge” and I nominate Sai Padma (Six wheelchairs donated to AU library) and Rajagopal Kantamneni  (Rareman with a rare mission )to take up this “Gratitude Challenge”

Oh I forgot to mention the person who threw this at me. She is Aparna Thota and I thank you Aparna for this opportunity.

 

Gratitude
Gratitude is the memory of heart

 

Note:  This is a post that I posted on my Facebook wall and I felt that confining it to that SMN is not right and that it should reach out to more people.  That is why you see it here.  Thank you for visiting.
