Be Optimistic

Dear friends, munchkins, sweetypies, darlings, Did you have a nice weekend well I had a quiet weekend and am now a size 12 about 65ish weight and God has been so good to me this year. I thank God for what we have and am optimistic for a better future I know I can not be like those on the red carpet nor do I want to. I find pleasure in cooking a nice meal for my family. Date nights with my husband and cleaning wardrobes, washing dishes and wiping runny noses. I have settled for the domestic life as wife and mother.

My husband and daughter bring so much of joy into my life and my grand mother who is in her 80’s brings so much of wisdom and advice into my life. I have learnt so much from my grand mother as she was a principal of a large school has travelled the world preaching and teaching and she is my inspiration as a strong, independent, versatile, lady who has accomplished much in this world and I am proud to be Mrs Grace Sathyaraj’s grand-daughter. She taught me to bake, cook and be strong lady for my family a back bone to my husband. I love my grand  mother and I hope I touch people’s lives the way my  grand mother has, through her love and personality and her strong unwavering faith in God.

I hope I can be a strong and decisive person, darlings at times I am fickle minded but at those times I go close the door and ask God to give me wisdom to make the right choice and He does. Make God the head of your life in Big decisions as well as the little decisions as what shall I cook today and watch God enrich and fulfil your life.

Dear ones this coming New year be Optimistic for a better and brighter future. Learn to love your neighbour now ladies if your neighbour is tall, dark and handsome it is easy to love and men if your neighbour is a blonde bombshell it is easy to love :). But I am talking about old age homes, elderly relatives many of them are neglected it may even be your own family members give them a call tell them you love them one word of love can take away many years of hate reach out in love and God will Bless you.

God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life. Jesus is a God of love and if bad things has happened or people have bullied you forgive them they are hurting inside. Do not be a bully back reach out in love and may God make you an inspiration to people through love. Be a Santa Clouse not a Scrouge learn to give and learn to receive. May this  Christmas season fill your hearts with love, joy and peace.

Seasons Greetings

Let Go Of The Past

Dear sweet muchkins, sweety pies, darlings how have you been this week. Today I learnt a very important lesson and that was let go of the past whether it is past regrets or past glories let it go. King Solomon  a very wise King said everything man longs after is vanity be it riches or processions it is all vanity.

May be in your past you were a size zero and a bombshell but now well motherhood and cleaning and cooking have made you a bit frumpy but remember darlings there is always a rainbow amidst dark clouds. There is always sunshine after the rain.

Maybe you had a wonderful business in your past and now it is not as successful but so is the stock market there will come a time when it will go up and do well and just for the record the stock market for the gold shares is doing great and a great share to buy in the good old days of fun and innocence when I had just left university I was working with stocks and shares in the late 1990’s in ICICI Bank In Bangalore and at that time the stock market shares in gold went up triple the amount people paid for the shares and man was it exciting.

I failed in mathematics in the 9th grade but got the highest in English and home science but strangely my first job dealt with a whole lot of numbers and it was a wonderful learning experience. Then I left India to go abroad. Do I have regrets ? Strangely yes and no but from today I told myself I am not going to talk about my past glories  nor my past failures. Today is a new day live for today and plan for tomorrow. I decided it is good to plan rather than running like a headless chicken wondering what will I do tomorrow. My husband is a wonderful practical, analytical planner while I am intuitive and creative and there is a balance between the two being God.

There is a song which goes one day at a time sweet Jesus, those days turn to weeks, those weeks turn to months and those months turn to years if you do not plan you will be in the same place doing the same thing either grumbling or enjoying what you do. I hope it is the latter. Forgive and forget the past do not dwell in the past live in the present and plan for the future. Truthfully I have not planned anything yet but by the end of the year hopefully I can come up with a plan for life, apart from losing weight.

Dear ones today let go of past regrets ask God to help you let it go. Then look ahead not backwards look forward as they say in the army Forward March. So live today and plan for tomorrow yesterday you might have been the President what are you today unless you are Sir Obama.

So be someone great, do something worthwhile life is too short to dwell in your past make your present and future count.

Love always from the Indian Aunty xx


Hello dear sweet friends ? How have you been ? Well I have been busy doing the usual wifely and motherly chores and duties. Hoovering or vacuuming, cooking delicious authentic Indian food but not as authentic as in India as I use very little spices  so that it is palatable for my husband.

You know mothers are the best teachers in the world and they can bring up presidents to lawyers to doctors mothers play a very important role in a child’s life. Do not underestimate fathers they too can provide a stable home for their sons and daughters.

Family a beautiful social unit. A wonderful relationship between husbands and wives and this social unit becomes a cultural unit, a democratic unit of a land they live in. Family is a relationship between parents and children and husbands and wives. In this day and age of divorce, adultery, swigging and swinging it is not fun or rebellion it is a disgraceful breakdown of morals and rebellion against not just your spouses but against God.

Dear ones sorry if I am being harsh but I am not a religious person and I do not even go to church every Sunday but I am spiritual and I believe  in the Lord God and I do not think of me as a school teacher confiscating your sweets but you look deep within do you feel good and happy getting drunk and having one night stands. Sex feels good for a few moments then  you think to your self what the heck have I done.

I did not have the privilege of getting married at a young age but I got married in the late 20’s. But some how God saved me, and made me wait  for my husband as a virgin. I actually thought I may never get married but I wanted to get married but now being a wife and a mother I am contended. I would like to get a job sometime later but now my sweet angel of a daughter needs me at home.

Yes I feel blessed even the kettle to make coffee and tea when I want, the stove to try out new recipes some wonderful , some disasters are all a blessing from God..My birthday is this month I am in my early thirties and all I can say is thank you God for my family and thank you for what I have so from a contended mummy and wife. from the Indian aunty
