“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”– Melody Beattie

“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around.” -Willie Nelson

A big heartfelt thanks to all the trees for being there for years and years and years.

Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge

Night-flowering Jasmine These flowers are so heavenly fragrances but release its fragrance only at night. It is also called Shiuli in Bengali and Harshringar in Hindi.

This is one of the best healing herbs.

Scientific nameNyctanthes arbor-tristis

The word, Pārijāta refers to the Indian coral tree, night-flowering coral jasmine, or simply fragrance. But, written and pronounced as Parijāta it means – descended from, begotten by or fully developed.

In Hindu mythology, the celestial Pārijāta tree is the tree of the universe which is owned by Indrani and planted in svarga located between heaven and earth, which tree, also known as Kalpa-Taru, is believed to yield all objects of desire.[2] This tree is identified with the Mandāra tree.

From the Bhagavata Purana, the Vishnu Purana and the Mahabharata it is learned that the elaborate process of Samudra Manthan of primal waters of the cosmic ocean yielded the Pārijāta tree as one of the three valuables, this tree, said to have blossomed atop Mount Meru in the garden of paradise and identified with the Indian coral tree, was claimed by Indra no sooner it rose to the surface and emitted its fragrance

Sunday Stills: Can You Capture the #Wind?

We can capture the action caused by the wind only and feel the wind.

Wind sings lullaby

But only when it’s gentle

Furious plays havoc

Trees are swaying dangerously in the storm.

Wind pushing the waves to the shore.
