What are you Thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Posted in:

HAPPY THANKSGIVING in advance to everyone, especially those in America.

I love the spirit of the thanksgiving day here in the states because apart from its history and the turkey and all, it is good to have a thankful heart and give thanks always. As it is, this is also the period when most churches in Nigeria do their various major thanksgivings, you know the ones that have the bazaar at the end. I remember as a child, looking forward to that day because of the variety of food that would be on offer. There were games too though I rarely won at those try-your-luck. Still it was the closest thing to a town fair and we got to meet most of our friends and family friends.

This year, God has been especially good to me and my heart is glad as I prepare to travel back to Nigeria. I am so thankful for life, love, health, but especially for my family. We had some crisis with my Dad and my sister, both around the same time in the middle of the year. But God proved faithful and answered our prayers. God is good and I thank him for EVERYTHING.

I also thank my SO, he's the most wonderful, supportive and loving man to me. Someone said to me, "What has got into you in the past two years? I didn't know you had so much in you." And I replied, it's all in the person who has become my husband and more importantly, my partner within this time. It couldn't have been the same without him. Thank you so much darling, I love you.

I am also thankful to you all, my readers, commenters, reviewers and supporters. Your words keep encouraging me and I am very grateful.

So what are you thankful for today?


  1. Another Lovely post Myne. I am thankful for everything, I am so blessed and lucky. Sometimes i feel like am not worthy of all the blessings God has given me. Two years ago, i thought my life was going in the wrong direction and now when i look back, i have more reason to say Thank you God.

    Being alive and not needing any help breathing is another reason to be thankful, hey am awake and alive is another reason.

    I have so many reasons to be thankful everyday of my life.

  21. This year has been such a trying year for me, especially the 2nd half.. but i've realized that all i've ever had to do was trust in God and stop worrying because he always makes a way. I took one week and jus fasted chale..straight up 6 to 6 the whole week, and I was jus like Homie G, thanksgiving is fast approaching, please give me something to be thankful for, because rightnow diehh, my life is shit..funny how just a week before thanksgiving, He just sorted me out..and is continuing to do so. I thank God for the people in my life who help me, listen to me, encourage me, inspire me.. and for the lil lil thns that make me smile/laugh/muse about issues..such as blogville. Good Luck Myne!

  22. Wish you all the best in your travels to Nigeria. I love the spirit of Thanksgiving although have never celebrated it but its always good to have a grateful heart. Its wonderful your SO brings out all the best that you have in you. I'm sure is thankful to be the one that can do so and be a witness to your life. HAPPY THANKSGIVING
