I am thankful…

for life. Every day that I wake up and get to take a shower and go to work, socialize with friends and come home and sit on the couch is a true gift. Thank you God. An unneeded reminder about the preciousness of life came upon hearing that the Nigerian musical artist DaGrin had passed away. I did not know him at all, but the loss of life always hurts my heart. May he rest in peace, and may God be with his family. Life is short! Please, let’s make our days count.

for family. I have been dropping by my parents’ place more often in the last couple of weeks (I’m such a mummy and daddy’s girl — no shame in admitting it!) and every time I go there, always unannounced, all my family is there. I love seeing them and gisting and teasing each other.

that I finally made a move I’ve been wanting to make for years. It may not turn out to be a life-changing moment but I’m happy nevertheless.

that tomorrow is Friday (which means the weekend is on its way)! It’s been a long week and I am ready for a weekend of sleeping in, socializing and praising God! I haven’t been to church for a couple of weeks (the church is not a good fit for me), but I’ll be there this Sunday by God’s grace.

the lovely connections made through blogging. I’m so blessed to be able to call some bloggers friends, and I hope that I can one day meet them!

I had hoped to respond to the infidelity post today, but that isn’t going to happen, so I’m thankful that my readers are forgiving of all the promises I make that I don’t keep. I’ll try not to do it again!

  1. Great reasons to be thankful.

    Life, family, friends, health and the list is endless.

    A thankful heart is always open to receive more.

    Thank God Its Friday!

    Do have a great weekend!

  2. I'm thankful for bloggers like yourself, keeping the spirit of writing alive. And for life…and for family…and for love…and for a constant re-birth.

  3. Like I have said to you before, whenever I even see your name I remember to be thankful, so I am thankful for all the things you are thankful for that are happening in your life.

    I am also thankful for all the things that are happening in my life and technically, they are mainly the little things. Like, right at this moment, I am thankful that the virus that shut down this laptop got cleared with some serious ingenuity an patience. =)

    Have a fab weekend!

  4. We only have one life to live , sad for the young boy's life, may his soul rest in perfect peace…really sad loss
