Hey people,it was an amazing weekend for me.Did some running around concerning my elder brother's white wedding and also did a little outing.I rarely go out these days,i think i'm getting old.*straight face* Hope you all had a very nice weekend though? Please,if you can,just give Toinlicious a very warm hug for me,no questions,just do it.Thanks!
As humans,we're prone to taking very important things for-granted.Things like waking up each day,being healthy,not witnessing disasters,having someone who loves us no matter what,having both parents alive,having wonderful family members,including extended etc.We're just liable to take these things for-grated.They're so normal that we don't even realize they can be taken away in a flash.The funny thing is when some unpleasant things happen,we swear we'd be more appreciative,but we just need a few good moments,and we'll forget our resolve.We'd go back to being our normal not-appreciative-enough self.Over the weekend,a few things happened.A dear friend of mine lost her friend and she was quite shaken.After talking with her,i just knew the death really hit her.But then again,doesn't death always hit?! Barely an hour after we finished talking,a friend of mine sent me a message on BBM to tell me one of our friends was involved in a gas explosion accident.WHAT?! Gas explosion?! They were headed to see him at the hospital so i waited for feedback and when it came,it wasn't pleasant.He was severely burnt (as i saw in the pictures i was sent),face,arms,legs...Dude got really burnt,it got me thinking.I've never lost someone very close to me,i've never had a disaster,i've never had to run helter-skelter for any reason and that's a privilege i definitely have taken lightly.
Just in case you're wondering where i'm going with this post,i just want to remind you that even though you don't think so,you've not been appreciative enough for the privilege you have to live a good life.To be healthy,alive,blessed,favored,to have parents who are well,to have loved ones around you,to have life at all...No,you've really not been thankful enough.We've all not been thankful enough.I'm using this medium to let God know i'm thankful,even though i sometimes forget,but i'll try to remember all his good works.Most especially the ones i consider normal.Have a nice day and week ahead people.
