On the 10th of December, I decided to write one thing I was thankful for. I will have to blame Mr Efe’s blog for this 🙂 and I must say it was a wonderful experience writing down one thing I was thankful for daily! There were days I drew blanks and had to dig and dig until I found something, some other days it flowed like the rivers of living waters!(Hallelujah somebody!!)
So without much ado, I give you :22 things I’m thankful for (from the number it spans 22 days)
Today, I’m thankful for my dad. For where God has brought him from and to. For the love he has for us (his children) and my mother. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY
Today, I’m thankful for shelter. Yes, Shelter!! A roof over my head, not taking anything for granted
