My thoughts on Dec. 13, 2017
I’m here again…This time I do not want to vent or whine about what cudda shudda wudda been. No. realize my life is way more different than I envisaged it would be. True evidence to the saying that ‘man proposes and God disposes’. Today I want to share the people and things I am grateful for, especially in the last year…
- God. Thank you for the many days of shedding secret tears that stretched into long nights, I learnt to put my trust in you completely. Thank you for listening quietly and pointing me towards the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you for coming through for me concerning my prayers and answering them. Reassuring me that your love for me is independent of me and that it flows freely. Thank you for healing my broken heart and providing for me. I admit that I am still work in progress, and I am grateful that you love me so.
- Family. Everybody says that right? But I am grateful for my folks, siblings & their spouses. They saw me at my worst and held me down through my rough patch. They provided all the love and the right words to reaffirm me and help me build back my confidence. They prayed for me, nursed me, cried with me, loved me and bore my pains with me. They pushed me to carry on softly but firmly. They made the difference.
- Bestfren. Thank you for not judging me and taking offense when I told you to butt out. Thanks for listening to me and being there for me. You made me realize that our friendship is deep and worth fighting for.
- FRIENDS & other friends. Thank you for understanding and giving me my much needed space. You were patient enough to pray for me and offer an understanding nod where desired. I don’t take you for granted.
