10 things Saturday V2

Hey peops...how have you all been?I tell you this week has been crayzee...from deadlines at work to entertaining naija guests(y'all know how we do especially when it comes to the "elderly" folks!!!)...to some one nearly flooding my flat...now that was absolutely NOT funny...to me getting locked out of my own abode!see me see yawa...to me freaking out cos I thot i left my bag on a bus!!!

In all these, I am absolutely thankful...truth be told, it could have been worse!


Here is the list of what I'm thankful for this week...



1.I am thankful for...the safe delivery of my friend’s baby who is now my new god-son (by hook or by crook!)


2.I am thankful for the opportunity to be a listening ear to someone…it could be worse, I could be deaf!!!!


3.I am thankful for freedom...the ability to go wherever, whenever and by whichever means I decide to…


4.I am thankful for the silly cow that almost flooded the building I live in...That gave me the opportunity to practice the virtue called patience and number 2 above…


5.I am thankful for my naija peops who come over ever so often to load me with much needed “home goods”(PS:no I ain’t sharing I’m just thankful period!!!:-))


6.I am thankful; for the J-I-T buses and trains that open their doors as I step right on the platform…I am also thankful for the empty seat in a crowded train at 6p.m in the evening!!!(Lordy Lord…you can’t begin to imagine the bliss!!!)


7.I am thankful for my friend’s assessment…she came out tops!!!


8.I am thankful for the meal I’m eating right this second…even though I was given what I didn’t order for…but hey…I’m grateful for the adventure of stepping outside my comfort zone…food wise that is…(okay again this was on Friday!!!)


9.I am thankful that I found my hand bag...I almost freaked out when I realised I didn't have it on getting the bus this afternoon...only to get home to find the bag smiling right back at me...*sighs* I think I need a much deserved break!!!


10.I'm thankful for the semi free ride that got me home when it was raining cats and dogs...


I'll be back to give you the story behind my missing bag!!!Have a beautiful week and stay focused on that/those resolution(s)!!!

It feels good to have a lot of things to be thankful for. Unfortunately, some people would confidently say they've got nothing to be thankful for. Selfish creeps, i call them. God's faithfulness is immeasurable. That alone sums up all the possible reasons to thank him for. I thank God because this year is gonna be different . . . and I mean different!
