Ten things Tuesday (09)

Hello my peeps, Sorry I went AWOL. I am back now. Bringing to you another Ten things tuesday. You can check my last list here

1. I am thankful to bloggers who checked up on me. Number 2 will explain what happened to me :)

2. Was in Naija, the past 10 days. Had fun, enjoyed the sunshine. So sorry I didn’t say…it was kind of impromptu and a very short visit so couldn’t catch up with any one, bloggers inclusive. I will plan better next time.

3. Was really good to see family: My parents, Parents inlaws, siblings inlaw, my older sibling and her beautiful daughter that looks like me, my grandma. Short trip but memorable

4. Had a safe uneventful trip going and coming. Sat beside some lady with a nasty attitude on my way to Naija, but thankfully the journey back was better. Sat beside some cute affable “half-caste” dude who is a DJ. As a married woman seriousily in love with her hubby, all I could commit was lookery lol (
Naijalines na you I dey follow o). We chit-chatted most of the journey, apart from when I was watching an inflight movie or sleeping.

5. I lost my phone in Naija at the Jade restaurant Lagos. The waiter kept insisting I didn’t leave it there (I was about to throw a tantrum) but thankfully it was found in the kitchen wrapped in the table cloth the waiter had cleared. Phew!

6. Today is
Writefreak’s 2nd wedding anniversary. I am thankful for her and her hubby.

7. This is the last month of the year. WOW, I am thankful to be alive, not by my power but by God’s grace.

8. I am thankful for blogville and the wonderful friends I have made here.

9. I am thankful for my hubby. He is the best.

10. Even though I couldn’t join the blog rally due to limited internet access in Naija- “I believe there is a GOD”, I am thankful that there is a GOD and that I believe in HIM. HIS loving
kindness is better than Life itself. Without HIM I am nothing. He took all that I was and made me all that I am today.

So what are you thankful for?

  26. I’m glad ‘Ten things Tuesday’s back. I guess I’m thankful to God for His favour. Oh yes I have been ‘much much much’ too favoured in recent times (especially when I don’t even deserve it) that I wonder if I’m God’s last born or something. I guess I’m thankful to the Most High for that. His protection is another thing to be thankful for, especially seeing me till this time of the year when many people, much better and righteous did not make it. I’m indeed thankful

  27. OluwaDee- yes dear I was.
