It’s my 23rd birthday. Someone get me some cake!¬†ūüéāWhoop!! It’s amazing how fast a year¬†passes by. I’m still collecting my thoughts on how¬†I feel. Just a year ago, I was so hyper about¬†turning 22 on 22nd December) and today, I’m 23.¬†How fast time flies.

Today, I’m sitting here and reflecting on the¬†past year and all that happened. God has been¬†good to me. He’s been so good to me. I have¬†tremendous things to be grateful for. I have a¬†wonderful family, good health, happiness and¬†love. But the most outstanding thing that¬†happened to me this year was the fact that I was¬†able to graduate from University. Graduation¬†looked impossible and I lost all hope but God¬†surprised meūüėĬ†I’m also grateful for readers like you who make¬†time to read my write ups.

I look forward to celebrating¬†my birthday with you all every year. Thank you¬†for being a part of my world.screenshot_2015-12-22-23-31-56-1.png
