Thankful Thursdays – 2.0

Another Thursday, another day to be thankful for the blessings in my life. I’m pretty new at this but am I the only one doing this who has to make sure that her gratefulness doesn’t contain some negativity too? For example saying “I’m thankful that my pants fit less snugly but they’re so worn out”? (I wish this was my problem o!) Anyways, without further ado, let’s go:

  1. Although they have only ever spent six weeks of their entire lives in Nigeria, my two brothers (aged 20 and 22) have really embraced some of the Nigerian artists I’ve been playing since we got back from Nigeria and that makes me happy. I hope they’ll come with me on my next trip to Nigeria.
  2. Making friends with with two women on blogville. They’re really great.
  3. Life. An oyinbo blogger friend that I have known for a long time (five years?) lost her father this week. I feel for her so much, because her relationship with her parents was a close one, like mine with my parents. I cannot imagine how she’s feeling.
  4. My laptop, aka my new best friend. Maybe I’ll have a one month birthday party for her. She’s navy blue yet I nicknamed her Ruby.
  5. My stubborness, which means that I never give up on things (as long as I’m determined to do it sha). I always feel such a deep sense of satisfaction when I figure out something that I’ve spent hours working on.
  6. My latest creative endeavour, which is challenging my creativity in a good way and occupying my time, time that should be spent sleeping!

    i love the name, ruby! im also grateful for a new laptop..um, not new exactly tho, my older sis did a hand-me-down..but yea!

    i really dont see being stubborn as negative, i see it as determination..

  5. Thank you for the condelences on my friend's behalf. She is amazingly well adjusted. She said that he could have died 10 years ago so she's grateful that they had these past 10 years together.

    I think that kind of determination can come in handy, but I guess knowing when you need a change of scenery (by switching to something else) is key too.

    Hey…and hand-me-down still means it's new to you. Congrats!

    I guess as long as you're not stubborn without being realistic, it's ok.
