Thankful Saturday...V3

Hello blogville...I've missed you guys like crazy...hope you're all good and your weekend has been quite restful like mine is...not.
This is my third post on thankfulness and I am extremely happy that I'm able to put this post up...
There's so much to blog about and so little time to put it down...but I'll keep trying...

Here goes my list for the week...

I am thankful for:

1.Obama's inauguration; This has given hope unlimited and deflated the lame excuse that there's a glass ceiling a black man can't get through...I can if I want...I need to remember that "talk is cheap"!!!

2.Another addition to my family...albeit extended...in a lighter mood:this weekly baby addition(s) is costing me men!Gosh!!! have they not heard of the expression: "make LOVE not BABIES"???...lol...okay y'all know I'm just kidding...I'm loving the added blessings that's what they are...

3...Ipod...facebook...They make communication sooo much easier(like you don't know already:-)...)NERD is the new COOL...well if you didn't know, now you know...I digress!
Got a call from a primary school mate...I was pleasantly surprised...while we were chatting on the phone, I smiled and sent a prayer to God for the brains behind facebook!

4.My job/work...was at the post office earlier in the week to pay some money...tax related...I noticed the queue was extremely long and was wondering why this was so...well I didn't have to wait for too long to find that out...I realised 90-99% of people on the queue were there to collect "giro"...benefit/allowance whatever it is called!
A cocktail of emotions ran through me...from anger to irritation to pity to disappointment etc...
While this was going on, I realised it could have been me standing there waiting to collect a handout from the government...just enough to cover the basics till the next week for the next fix! but thankfully...it isn't...I am truly thankful for His mercy and grace!

5.The grace to fight my many battles:He sure didn't promise a smooth ride...the road is bumpy and fabulous lol and I'm gonna love every nanosecond of the ride!

Hope we've not broken our new year resolution(s)...stay focused and stay connected to the Source...have a brilliant week...

Oooh, I'm loving your thankfulness, NoLimit and this list was particularly fab!

I'm thankful for facebook too: I received a call from a sort of relative who remembered me from Nigeria over 20 years ago! I didn't remember him and he's only two years older than I am so I have no idea how he remembered me. Anyhow, he called today and it was so great to speak with him and he was so happy to have found my family via facebook.

I can't even remember if I made resolutions for this year...all I know is this year will be the best year so far!

Have a lovely evening and a great Sunday, girl! ♥

Thank God for facebook too...found about 1 of my secondary school mates, I know its only been only 5 or 6 years and some may be going longer without fining their friends but im still thankful, we has a week reminiscing on old pics that were put up

I think of the people who live day in day out between on giro pay and the other and I thank God for hi blessings in my life. That I have the means and capability to fend for myself even in rough times.

I'm discovering that the more I thank God for the 'little' things, I find so much more to be thankful for!

I join you to thank God for your job. Things may be getting harder but at least you still have that!
