Thankful: October 2013

Thankful Thursday posterWe’re at the end of October already! It has been an eventful month and I’m thankful for all that God has done.

First off, my sister arrived safely back in Canada at the end of last month! She’s visiting us (her hubby is in Nigeria) and I’m so thankful that she had no problem traveling alone for the first time! I know we’re sheltered (my first solo flight was this past April) but it’s part of what makes us who we are so I’ve decided to embrace it!

One of the perks of being a director (as my ogas are) is that they have parking passes that allow them to park in our building’s underground parking lot (these passes are not cheap or I would get one!). I’m thankful that when one director in particular travels, she always offers me use of her pass. I was able to use a parking pass for most of October, meaning I didn’t have to take the bus—bliss!

I can barely remember life before smart phones and I’m not sure I want to! With all the administrative work related to the Nigerian Blog Awards having a smart phone has been a Godsend! I can’t imagine if I had to wait until I was at computer to respond to emails or tweets—smartphones let you take any service-oriented initiative to the next level easily.

I’m thankful that my sister stepped in when a date with an amateur photographer friend to take some pictures of me fell through this past weekend. We had fun taking pictures outside, even though it was cold, even though there was a fat worm in the grass, and even with people walking by and wondering what we were doing, especially when she was snapping pics of me holding that placard in the above picture.

As I mentioned, my grandmother passed away on October 8 and I’m so thankful for her life! A little piece of her lives on in her children and grandchildren, and I like to think of that.

What are you thankful for?
