I got that lovely piece from a good friend and it lifted my spirit. I know we should all improve on showing gratitude to God even for the things we consider as little mercies.
I have been a bit low in the spirit for some days now but God has been awesome as always. My blogger friends have been supportive with comments. Sister Sayo i know is smilling down at the rest of the family from heaven.
Yeah,no gist really. It wont be a boring weekend tho. I have to take out my braids this night. Have i ever blogged about my passion for Nigerian films? I have a box load of Cd's. I only do yoruba films tho, i will only watch the english ones when i am absolutely BORED!
On wednesday, i bought 15 yoruba films, that means my sleeping time is now 10pm for the next 3 weeks. Not a bad deal for someone that doesnt go out after work. My social life is nil that i know but what can a girl do? I guess i need to find out from my london peeps what they do to catch fun.Buki, funmi, Desola and Calabar girl over to you.
I was gisting with my colleague at work and she asked me if i were to rewind and fastfowward my life what age would i love to be. Well, to rewind abeg na 5 years old o with all the innocence and all. Worshiping God with truth and awe, believing that there is actually santa claus. Willy willy truly exists and i can throw my tooth on the roof so it can grow quickly. Infact there was a time i actually planted egg shells just for another to grow. As if that was not enough, i went to the stream by my house once in ibadan to catch tadpoles, thinking they were actually little fishes!
I can never forget the way my mum laughed that day before she called her husband to come and see what his children brought home!
To fast foward: me at 80 with my husband at our grandkids' graduation or wedding or some celebration. More prayers and we will get there abi now.
To all my October peeps, HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Cant start mentioning names i am not ready to blow my cover.
Have a lovely weeknend all.
