Hey people.It's a lovely day to be alive and more lovely because today adds another year to my age.Yes,it's my birthday today! Generally,i'm not really a birthday-celebrater.Sometimes i don't even tell people about my birthday till it's past.I remember a funny incident that happened some 7-8 years ago.I was chilling with my friends on my birthday and none of them remebered.I didn't bother reminding them,i just hung out with them as usual and went home afterwards.The next day i mentioned the fact that my birthday was the day before and they were mad at me and of course themselves for forgetting my birthday.In as much as i don't celebrate per se,i don't forget my friend's or loved ones' birthdays.I guess i'd change my not celebrating ways when i have a family of my own because i definitely would be celebrating my wife and kids birthdays.Maybe even close the street,the Yoruba style.*wink*
Anyway,the fact that i don't exactly celebrate my birthdays doesn't mean i'm not grateful or happy that i get older,i do big time.However,this year i have more reasons to be grateful to God that previous years.This year has been very fruitful for me.This same year,i finished the compulsory NYSC program and had a job waiting for me (I actually started working before i even graduated from the University).This year,i got closer to me father,this year my elder brother got married.This year,i got richer both materially and otherwise (I never hammer the major hammer yet sha).This year,i got wiser.This year,i got engaged to the most amazing gurl on earth.Indeed,this year has been very awesome for me.This year,i've got love from different angles more than before! I've be privileged to have very special people in my life most of whom i met here on Blogsville (they know themselves).It's been an awesome year for me,really!
I am using this medium to thank God for His mercies,grace and love towards me.Indeed God loves me,i can't even deny it.HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
