“Evening allows you to forget the bitter worries of your day and get ready for the sweet dreams of night”
I come home, exhausted from the long day’s w. The toll the day has on me is indeed tiring. However, as Robert Frost said, “The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep”. I look at the richly colored peach sky of the evening, and thinking to myself “what a fine opera of the rich colors of dusk ablaze by with the fire of the setting sun, creating a great work of art in my curious soul. My face aglow with the orange rays of the setting sun “before twilight beckons the stars” as mentioned by Angela Abraham.
“I am here and I am grateful”, I tell myself as I prepare to spend quality time with my loved ones and retire for the day. Hence, I sit down and close my eyes. I take few deep breaths and catalog the events of the day. Yes, it is the time for me to communicate silently to myself. I take deep breaths to show my gratitude towards me for getting things done, and acknowledge things that could not be done, as tomorrow is a brand new day and full of new possibilities.
“I rest in the light of forgiveness. I forgive myself and others for that which is done (and better left undone) and also that which is not done (and better if done). I give myself permission to enjoy this moment without guilt. I freely release all uncertainty, regret, and fear.”
– Mary Anne Radmacher
I take few more deep breaths and open my eyes.
I sit with my family by my side, who too are tired from the long days of work. We talk about each other’s day and show gratitude for all the accomplishment and acknowledge things undone and move on, as life is short and if we dwell on the things undone, we can’t move forward. As Lin Yutang said, “Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.” “The whole point of getting things done is knowing what to leave undone” said Oswald Chambers.
Evening is full of gratitude of things done, and time to reconnect with loved ones over dinner, and hope the new day full of possibilities that tomorrow will bring. After dinner I stroll through the path, taken by many, with open arms and a great spirit. The humans have settled down while the nature has just woken up. The chirping sounds of the crickets become louder at night as the moon glow through the dark clear clearing path for the twinkling stars. Oh the symphony of the fireflies dancing the spotlight of the moon and the sequined silver stars. It is the darkness of the cold night that have paved the path of enlightenment through the glowing moon smiling through the diamond-like twinkling stars. Oh I gazed at the beauty of night and tell myself, “It’s time to hit the hay”, as the night is full of dreams and takes us deeper into our imagination and soul.
May your night is full of dreams chasing you into the sky with no limits. Good Night.
“I love the silent hour of night. For blissful dreams may then arise.”
– Anne Bronte
“The darker the night, the brighter the stars, the deeper the grief, the closer is God.”
– Fyodor Dostoyevsky

CAUSES CLOSE TO MY HEART
PLEASE DONATE DIRECTLY TO THE ORGANIZATIONS THROUGH MY FUNDRAISING LINKS:
I consider myself fortunate to have good health, a full-time job, and a roof over my head. However, there are still so many people who are struggling to put food on their tables. Please join me to help those who are struggling. If you have good health, full-time jobs, and a roof over your head, please join me to help those who are struggling. Whether you donate $5 or $500, you will make a huge difference in someone’s life.
America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to my gofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct linkto the site.
Help make sure all hungry Marylanders have reliable access to nutritious food when you join Sustainers Circle.
PLEASE DONATION ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic.
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring contents to you.
