As the year gradually comes to an end, with Christmas approaching ๐Ÿ˜€ I decided to do a “what are you thankful for” post; to appreciate all I’ve had in the past 11 months.

The first and most important thing I’m thankful for is my family. If I begin to list all the people I’ve known in one way or another, or people who I didn’t know, who passed away a couple of months ago (from January 2016 till date), the list will be endless. But, I have my family with me. Despite all our fights and arguments, I never lost any of them; and I’m beyond grateful for that. Entering another year (2017) with them is the best gift I can receive! I’m really happy to have them by my side; they’re my treasure; even though I never show or say it.

The other things I’m thankful for is my health, and that of everyone I know. I’ve been sick severally this year; but it wasn’t serious. Neither me, my family, nor my friends were seriously ill. I’m also thankful for everyone’s support in the blogging community. The amount of love, kindness and support I’ve received from you guys is amazing. I’m thankful for all I have; from the smallest thing to the biggest thing. Lastly, I’m thankful for life. Words can’t describe how happy and thankful I am for another wonderful year; despite the ups and downs, it was amazing. Thank you God!๐Ÿ™

What are you guys thankful for? And what do you wish for?
