…’tis about thinking.

“Hmm all you people that are tempted or saying you will start a thankful series…i am watching you….” Well, come to think of it, ’tis quite a tall order oh. What? What do you mean ’tis a tall order? You mean you cannot find JUST Ten Things to Thank Me for in a week? Have you forgotten that saying, Eni ba mo inu ro, a mope da – He who knows how to think will know how to give thanks.” Very true.

  1. Grace, simply unmerited favour.
  2. Review, take home increased by 50%, whoa!
  3. Highways, drive on them now; laziness bid me not before.
  4. Friends, one said; “i respect your decision, just know i will always have your back.”
  5. Charter, did my professional exams; oops, almost thot will not be able.
  6. Career, finally my dream project moves to site.
  7. Opportunities, are you sure you do not want to come to the bank; we still need guys. No, thanks.
  8. Choice, took off my afro without apologies to no one. *winks*, hope it counts.
  9. Parents, even if i pray not, they never cease.
  10. Siblings, you always disagree to ‘re’agree; the centre must always hold.

Whoa!!! i did it. You see, I told you you could do it if you just think. Till next week abi? At least, now you will always take note of those little things usually taken for granted.

Hey why Tuesday and not maybe Friday or even Sunday? Well, a simple way to acknowledge Aloted whose idea is being replicated.

    Congrats on your achievements…God is indeed faithful.

  10. So many things to be grateful for. Cheers.

  11. You know, in the morning for exactly 10 minutes, I do some thinking. It really is all about thinking, and if one can cultivate that habit it will help immensly. We spend more time planning vacations than we do thinking in life. Good one. So whats the password to the previous post? Shoot me email

  12. Like the way wrote this.
    Finding a reson to thank in something that seems to be no reason.
