The Magic Recipe'


    Hello All the Wonderful People! Missed me?? Well I certainly missed all the action in the blogging world. I can't believe its almost June! That means almost half of the year whizzed past. I tried not to be away from the web for so-oooooooooo long but couldn't help it! But I do have a lot to share and that is precisely why I decided to have a l'il chit-chat with y'all in this post. A lot of things happened to me in the past 5 months, my l'il doll started her schooling, I had a favorable surge in my career, life became fast-paced for Hubby and me, my son passed with flying colors, I was reconnected to two of my very good friends after 14 years.
      Life is a roller-coaster ride, full of ups and downs. As a working Mom I now find it hard to spare time for myself, but hey this also helped me deal with the painful loss of a teenaged cousin of mine who was very dear to me. It was sudden and unexpected and so hit me real hard, I read a lot of spiritual texts to deal with it and courtesy my hectic schedule I was able to overcome that feeling of deep remorse. I read this wonderful  short story which had a magical impact on me and so I've decided to share it with you, hope it wields its magic on you guys too!! So here it goes...
      A little boy is telling his Grandma how "everything" is going wrong everywhere. He has been facing problems at school, and if that is not enough, there are family problems, besides severe health problems in the family. Meanwhile, Grandma is baking a cake.
 She asks her grandson if he would like a snack, which of course he says, he does. 
"Here, have some cooking oil", she says.
"Yuck", says the boy.
"Then how about a couple of raw eggs?"
"Gross, Grandma!" he replies.
"Would you prefer some flour then? Or maybe some baking powder?" she asks.
"Grandma! What's wrong with you! Those are all yucky!!" he replies.
To which Grandma replies:"Yes, all those things taste bad if served alone, all by themselves. But when they are mixed together in the right amounts and in the right manner, they combine together to make a delicious cake!!"
     She added further, "God works the same way. Many times we wonder why he lets us go through such bad and difficult times. But God knows that when He puts these things in the order He wants, they work wonders for us, and they eventually make us strong so they are for our own good. We just have to trust Him, and eventually, they will all make something Wonderful of us!!"
    So simple yet so meaningful, to me it turned out to be the magic recipe' that zipped me out of the blue. I believe God answers all our queries we just have to be willing enough to listen. You may or may not agree with me but anyway thanks for visiting my Blog and for hearing me out. My next post will be about dealing with difficult people as I've already committed to you guys. I never write about anything unless I'm sure of its effectivity. I have researched well enough on this topic and have vast personal experience in this regard too, thanks to all the difficult people I've come across so far in my life(Sigh), in fact I'm all set to try the techniques I've learned on the most difficult person in my life currently. Have my fingers crossed!! Will keep you posted. Till then Choose Well and Live smartly!!
