TGIF 1.8

     Its Friday once again and wow, but the week went so fast. Now, I have to go make sure Blogorati kept to his “to do” list this week.

      I am grateful for surviving the weather this week; imagine an environment where it’s sunny yet cold and windy as hell

      I just heard that a family friend passed away this morning; it’s like every week there’s some news about a death somewhere. May God comfort all the families that are mourning someone within this period

      I was discussing with a friend this evening and we were reflecting over our childhood; Its only in naija where I have experienced half and quarter current, and now all I can say is “thank God for constant supply of light”

     I remember days of carrying 20litre and 40litre gallon to and fro the borehole; I still thank God for that was my own source of weight lifting and thank God that I can easily turn the tap in the kitchen sink or bathroom and water comes out, without me having to carry jerry cans

     Only in naija……..I couldn’t possibly trade all those experiences in naija, cos they contributed in making me what I am today. Have a wonderful weekend!!!
