Everyone looks forward to the Christmas break. However, due to the new Covid restrictions in Sydney, people had to cancel their plans. We were not allowed to have gatherings, and due to the fear factor, everyone was keeping away. This saddened many hearts. As we entered the New Year, I wanted to express my gratitude to my friends, so I decided to cook meals and call them over one by one since we all couldn’t all meet at the same time.
This brought so much joy to everyone. One of my friends’ daughter was suffering from depression due to the pandemic situation and her chronic health condition. She loves Pani Puri( a savoury snack where puffed crispy hollow balls are stuffed with spicy, tangy and minty water). So, along with the food, Pani puri was a surprise treat for her. She was over the moon and said, “Didi, whenever I come here, I return home feeling happy”.
Being able to do something for others brings happiness to me as well.
Wishing everyone a happy and blessed year ahead. May we find peace and blessings in life❤
Sharing what we have brings joy to all.
