#TTC-2016|| DAY 18 & 19

Hope your week started off well. 

I had a great weekend. If you remember, I wrote here that I was going to be travelling. Sunday went pleasantly well even though I didn’t know I was going to spend so much time “out”. If we weren’t watchful enough, I’d probably would have missed my train. My return trip ended up being 13hours even though I thought it was 12. Actually much of a difference since I had to go straight to prepping for class as I returned. That did damage to the plans I had made-it was my mistake though. 😏

I missed my day of thankfullness yesterday and I was sad for that 🙁

1. Receptacle of Wisdom. If you don’t already know, this is Damola’s blog where she does some aweome work💃. We haven’t spent Yeeeeears together in this sphere but when I thought R, this easily came to mind cos truly, I’m grateful.

2. Roads/Railway: I mean? Since we don’t have wings to fly, since some distances are to short to fly to, since we don’t always get to fly even when we’re making 22hours journeys😄 I’m grateful for roads/railways.(KYIV)

3. Redemption/Restoration: I’m thankful for the love of God that won for me, wins for me; His love that brought/brings me back home, His love that gave it all for me to live again.

4.Routers: hehe 

5.Rain: Ok, I don’t like being or dancing in the rain at all! I don’t appreciate how messy things become outside when it’s raining. (I love the smell of rain on dry soil though-petrichor yeah?)but I understand the blessing that the rain is to me and to so many others and for that, I am truly, truly, thankful.

***********************MY S LIST OF THANKFULNESS************************
I truly can’t believe we are here!!! I remember when we were in the earlier days and S seemed so far away 😲 You may or may not guess right, the first item on this list:

1. SALVATION: I gave my life to Jesus Christ some years ago. What that means is that I am saved from sin, from guilt, shame, fear, depression, defeat, eternal death. Here on earth, I can live as an overcomer, a true light, a child of God. I can live by the help of the Holy spirit and win always. I am also sure that after this life, I will live forever with Christ.

2.. SUMMER 2016!!!: Of course, of course, of course. I’d say, I was in my realest element this summer. I wish I could break it down for y’all. It was a good time. A number of things were defined for me this summer. My friends graduated, I got to extern, even though I dislike being under the rain, I once had a rough day which eventually ended with me getting seriously beat by the rain. I was at the verge of doing the “REALLY????!!!” when I decided to dance my way home-in the rain. It was great. I travelled a little bit, I got deep insights that led to great write-ups (which I’m doing my best to work on-not by best, yet). I finally chose a medical specialty, I visited new places and learnt amazing history, I took walks, risks, and went on some not-so-regular adventures 😂😂, I had new, deeper, experiences with God, I stayed a while with my friend, Temi ❤️, I RESTED!!! I stayed on my own quite for a while after leaving her, I unintentionally pissed off some friends 😔. I didn’t get it right althrough neither did I have it right all the time but it was great and I am so grateful. I blogged everyday through August and some parts of Septemeber, set new goals and…

3. SIBLINGS/SISTERS: Yaaaaaaaay!!! One of the greatest set of  people I’m growing old with. I have biological and adopted sisters and I’m grateful that the line dims more rapidly than you’d know.

4.SHORTCUTS: Now, not all shortcuts are good but I’m grateful for the shorcuts in terms of routes or lifehacks that have saved me alot.

5. SEASONING: heheeeee…. maggi/knorr for the win!(not the crayfish versions). I love me my Nigerian seasoning.

I’m grateful for seasons, for songs, for salt, for sunshine, success, service, sports…
