IT IS NEVER TOO MUCH ..... TO GIVE THANKS.

I hope I don't continue to sound like  a broken record with my apologizes, qui? Okay then, I am sorry for my inconsistency in blogging,I have so much on my plate right now, by the grace of GOD I will come out with a testimony soon to praise GOD for HIS faithfulness. It is always good to give thanks and appreciate everything and anything someone does for you. There is nothing like little or trivial kindness, it takes love and caring for one to be kind, especially in this era we live in, which is all about me, I and myself, and especially in this society I live in, that, the fear of litigation has made many to be too careful with their words and actions. All the same, there is always an exception and people who are ready to take that risk to show kindness and love to both strangers and friends. 


There is festive mood in the air because thanksgiving is just around the corner. By Thursday, thousands of baked turkey will be adorning the dinner tables in America. Sincerely yours will buy pre-cooked turkey on Wednesday, because, moi is too lazy tired  to bake any turkey from scratch! My oga has ordered jollof rice and moin-moin from a caterer for our guests ... nay, my brother-in-law and his family are not guests o jare ... that has been our 'tradition' since we came to yankee, but 2 or 3 friends do come over to join in the celebration. I did detailed cleaning of my home this weekend because I will be busy during the week, and need my beauty sleep, since when I don become sleeping beauty fa?  before Thursday.


I changed my schedule at my place of work, I don't want to work on Sundays anymore because I need more quality time with my family; I have told you guys before how night work affects my family. I usually have Wednesdays and Thursdays off, my kids and husband would not be at home, I would still be sleeping when they came back, no time for communication, it was truly affecting us, money is good but family is best. See, living in America can be very lonely for an immigrant without family or a companion. Especially now that winter is at the door.






SO! My co-workers surprised me with a send-forth party, because, I was transferred to another branch that fits my new schedule last week, I was overwhelmed by their kind words in the thank you card, (even from other managers) and I love the gift, it is symbolic ..... look at the picture up there #pointing#, .... I felt so blessed and loved at that moment, because truly speaking, it feels good to be appreciated. Hence, I will be failing in my job if I don't appreciate those who have been there for me .... to my creator; the ALPHA & OMEGA, my parents, my husband, my children, my friend Patrina, my Church members, my neighbours, my co-workers,  the kind strangers I have met on my journey in this life and to everyone who reads my blog,  I say, a big THANK YOU! GOD bless you all.


HAPPY THANKSGIVING AMERICA! 

P.S I had written several thanksgiving posts, but this particular one still gets more readership .... Can anything good come out of ......
