As the sunlight creeps through my window each fresh day
It reminds me to send a note of gratitude your way
Thank you for a family so supportive and caring
And friends who are helpful and loving
Hats off to all our silent warriors
As they are our silent saviours
Thank you Dear God , for all the good things in life
And for showing me that after every storm and strife
There is a pretty rainbow in sight
Dear God ! Each day when I open my eyes to the beauty of your wonderful creation , I thank you from the core of my heart . Everyday , you give me another opportunity to enjoy the sweet chirping of the birds , a pretty rainbow after the rains and the first rays of the sun .Without you I wouldn’t have been able to wade through all the low phases in my life . You guided me through all the trials and tribulations in life . Thank you for a secured career and making me strong and positive.
Without your blessings , love , affection and care , my dear loving parents ,I wouldn’t have been the person I am today . You were my first teacher and guide . Now , you have gone forever , but you have left behind beautiful memories which can never be erased . I had always taken you for granted when you were around . But I am thankful to God that I was born your daughter . You were an epitome of sacrifice , protection , and unconditional love . Hope now you both are at peace , accompanied by the angels , in your new celestial home .
When I wanted a healing hand and wished to be loved and appreciated, my dear parents , family and friends ,you were always by my side . You always taught me that ,” Mistakes are the best teachers “ and inspired me to learn from them . Whenever I felt low , lonely or ugly , you were there to cheer me up and make me feel beautiful and cherished . I would like to dedicate this letter to all my teachers , who have played a vital role in moulding and shaping up my life and career . All my teachers have always been special for me . Naming a favourite , would be unfair and an uphill task.
All my teachers , formal or informal , have motivated me to dream , aspire and grow . You all have held my hand and taught me to walk , eat, read, write . You have always motivated me to walk with dignity and speak out what is right . I will always be indebted to you all for imparting in me the values of hard work, courage, perseverance and confidence .
“Teaching is one such profession that creates other professions” . This is also a the call to all employers , parents and students . Every teacher should be valued and respected . Teaching is a taxing job . Whether in real class rooms or virtual their hard work and dedication must be appreciated .
A grand salute to you , the brave Indian soldiers at the border and the frontline covid warriors . You have all sacrificed your comforts , happiness and even lives so that we can breathe in peace . Even at the time of crisis , the call of duty for your nation and humanity is more important to you than your aged parents , family and children .
It’s high time dear mankind , we realise the grave mistakes we have committed towards humanity and nature and redeem them before it is too late . God has given us birth on this Earth with a purpose , not to misuse our superior powers and cause havoc . We had been warned of the impeding crisis for decades . But we always ignored it . Changes in the environment usually take place due to human activities . We have deprived Mother Nature of all her natural resources for our own selfish greed and needs . So now nature seems to be taking revenge on mankind with a vengeance in the form of climate change , floods , droughts , cyclones , hurricanes and forest fires and sadly this pandemic . Let us take a pledge that we will surely try to mend our ways and look after ‘Mother Nature ‘ well . Please forgive us dear ‘Mother ‘ and give us the strength to help you heal .
Though you may have broken my backbone by your sudden unannounced paid leaves or due to the curfew , my dear house helps , you are an integral part of my life . Through this letter I would like to show my gratitude to you all who have been working in my house for over the years . You may have broken a glass or two or forgotten to add salt in the curry . Yet , I thank you for cleaning the house , washing the car and pruning the plants. For me you are no less than the covid warriors .
