Last day of my Navaratri celebrations and it is Vijayadasami. I go to bed as a happy person.
It was 10 days of continous visits by guests. Many years ago I used to be tense when I wanted to have people in my house. I was nervous how my son would behave and more about what would happen to the food I make.
I would say I have come a long way. I have started accepting my son’s behavior around guests and I am fine if he eats the food. I have no expectations with regard to his etiquette. Isn’t that his disability? I had 65 return gift bags prepared and I found only 3 or 4 left. So you can see the foot traffic that happened in my house the past ten days. I am really grateful to all the guests who visited and appreciated my efforts and encouraged me for next year.
My Navarathri Golu was recognized by a local organization in Pittsburgh, https://www.leaf2gollc.com/. I won first prize for showcasing my sustainability practices in my doll exhibit. I am truly grateful for the organizer of the event and my 100 dollar earth friendly gift basket from them has some special use. By the way it was truly a surprise for me. I am so happy all my son’s hard work has been recognized. (This means more work for him coming up soon, since he has to do a bigger and better job.)
I am truly grateful to the facilitator of my son’s program for making the return gifts. She has already started planning the next year ones😀.
Tomorrow is Halloween Dance for my son and I have to shift gears and dress up my son or maybe not! But definitely would be there for pizza and soda after a week of Indian snack sundal 😀.
Thank you all for following my blog during this festive week!
