#imthankfulfor

I've always had reasons for which to be thankful. To God, to my parents, to nature, to the earth, to my friends,....

Wokeup one day to Temite's #imthankfulfors on twitter and after sampling opnion (thanks again twitfam) I realised again that most humans are thankful for the same things. For and to God. For being God. For family, what would we do without you. For life. No matter how bad everyday is, at least ure still alive right? For money. And of course the things money can buy. For love. For always making it count.

I am thankful for this gift. That I can put pen to paper and write things that can make me or you laugh, smile, cry and think. This gift that gives words meaning...

I am thankful for bad roads. Cos they ensure that I don't speed to my death. But I am even more thankful for good one. Cos that'll mean that Pegasus will be alive for longer.

I am thankful for people that sleep with their mouths open. Even when in public. For example in traffic. Gives me something to laugh about every morning.

I am thankful for PHCN's erratic power supply.it makes me appreciate the inventors of electricity and all resultant lightbulbs even more. But I'm especially thankful for light. Even if its just so that I can charge my blackberry.

I am thankful for Pegasus. For I'd definitely be the tardiest person in my office if I had to take a taxi every morning. I'm even more thankful for Pegasus. For those nights when a bed is too far.

I am thankful for bad friends. For they make you appreciate the good ones more. But I'm especially thankful for good friends. I don't have enough words to say why. But I pray for you everyday.

I am thankful for gadgets and toys. They make LDRs less painful and even longer. But I'm even more thankful when you're here with me, when I can see ur soul and hear your heartbeat. When ur arms are around me and your head is in the nook of my shoulder.

I am grateful for rain. Soft showers or thunderous downpours. It reminds me tha God has not forgotten.

I am thankful for alcohol. It helps.

I am thankful for music. I cannot begin to describe the orgasm in my heart when I listen to music. But now, I'd rather listen to your snoring than listen to music to make me sleep. At least you'll be beside me.

I am thankful for you, dear reader. You give me another reason to write. You always have. But I'm even more thankful when you leave a comment. Mark ur steps across this blog. My heart.

I am thankful for ex boyfriends. Because if they didn't become exes, you'd never get to that last bus stop. The place where you are meant to be.

I am thankful for laughter. Especially when we do it together. I am thankful for hope and faith. The difference between winners and every other person.

I am thankful for me. For the person that I have become. For my smile, for it is pure. For my heart, because it is true. For my soul, because it holds no hate. For my mind, because it can dream. For my imagination. Because it can draw you closer. For my body. Because it is precious.

~ I'm thankful for my family, condoms and birth control pills. :D~

~ I am thankful to God for my glasses! They help me see better and dey make me look cute.....somtimes :D ~

~ Im thankful for where I am, not where I thot I would be, but im more than thankful to God. :) ~

~#Iamgrateful for Words. Cos without them my life will lack all colours and for my fellow word merchants, may you find bliss always. @SL419~

...............................................

Too many times because we have our eyes set on big things, we forget to be thankful for the little ones. Let's change that.

And for God, who has for now blessed me with these.

#np: Just for a moment (aqualung I think)

Enjoy the rest of ur week.
