30 Days of Thankfulness 2- DAY 30

I feel honored to be one of those chosen to round up the "30 Days ..." Looking back at this year so far, i indeed have a lot to be thankful for. I'm so serious, i know it may sound cliche. God has been faithful, he has been good to me, he has been awesome. I've come to learn so far in life that even when things are not going according to your supposedly perfectly laid out plans, to still be thankful because everything happens for a reason.

I'm thankful for my family and to God for keeping us even during trying times.

I'm thankful for completing my bachelors degree this past May. It was indeed challenging, but i thank God that not only did i finish well, but i finished strong also.

I'm thankful to God for my sister's successful completion of her degree and for gaining admission to grad school on a full scholarship in form of a fellowship.

I'm thankful for the job i have now, it was indeed the job i wanted and the opportunities he has given me so far.

I'm thankful to God for the mister, my boyfriend. Okay, if y'all have been following my blog, you'd know that the last time i dated was 4 yrs ago and it wasn't a really serious r/ship, lasted for about 6 months. That was my very first bf and i think i just dated him to know what it feels like to have a bf. I was young and naive(lol). The mister has been everything i ever wished for in a man and more. The good part is that i wasn't even looking when everything happened. Love is most definitely in the air.

I'm thankful for my TERC family. Even though i haven't met some of them in person, i thank God for this strong connection we have. It's great, unexplainable.

I'm thankful to God for TERC, 'cos since we started it's been challenging but God has remained forever faithful. We've had our ups and downs yet we've come out victorious.

I'm thankful for the wonderful friend i met through this medium, Walking Encyclopedia, (u know urself) your words of encouragement during that trying period were priceless. Thank you.

I'm thankful for God's mercy that has kept me, even when i felt like giving up on myself, he never gave up on me.

I'm thankful for my health. In the last 5 years, i've not slept in a hospital or been in a hospital cause of an illness. My Jehovah Rapha has been my personal physician. Doing the regular check ups without me knowing.

I'm thankful to God for life.

I'm thankful to God for you, the reader and i pray his will for your life will be accomplished in the mighty name of Jesus- Amen.

I like your blog and your writing style. I noted that you like reading blogs. I'd love to find African bloggers(living in Africa) that write in a similar stylet you. Do you have an blogs you can recomend?

I'd like to contribute to a positive and nuanced picture of Africa. In the European media, Africa is often portrayed in negative terms (wars, droughts, corruption etc.) and African people as passive sufferers. I'd would like to show that Africa is in fact a great continent with a great deal of diversity, positive growth and bursting with intelligent people that are active agents for change in their own societies.

In this process, I'm looking for good, varied African blogs that reflects this. I'm looking for African bloggers living in Sub-Saharan Africa. I am are looking for a variety in style and content, so most bloggs will be of interest.

So, if you know of any good blogs (in English or French) please send me a mail!!

Wishing you a great day!
