Hi guys, guess what i had for dinner a couple of nights back?
Ewa agbado and fried banana.
Yup you read that right … Banana!!! It was pretty cool – and filling (which is the koko).
So I’m grateful for adventure .. I’m grateful for the variety that we can create with few dishes, I’m grateful for new experiences, I’m grateful for agbado (corn), I’m grateful for ewa (beans) and of course for banana (which was a pretty cool plantain substitute).
P.S. I’m now a biking pro. I think God gave me a ‘healthy’ fear of bikes so i wont get addicted to them and I’d learn how to develop patience 😀 because right now – when i can’t seem to find a taxi or bus going my way, its bike time!!!
Anyway, #GratitudeAttitude is 13 days away!!! I’m so excited 🙂 So I’m grateful for hugs and I want to share this with you guys:
What’s really special about a hug?
Does it heal, does it steal, does it really deserve appeal?
What’s really the big deal?
Does it Unite?
What really does it ignite?
I feel special by the mere sight of it
I sense shivers as of water from the pacific pouring right on me
I crave the embrace
I long for my heart to race
To the mother whose Child is in her arms
To the father praying holding on to psalms
To the boy whose seeking hope
To the girl who can barely cope
In all of this I have come to learn
That whatever we face ,Whatever our race
The message of Grace, Love and hope can simply be expressed in a simple hug’
This piece is by a special friend of mine and I do believe thats the truth about a hug – that’s how powerful a hug is so be grateful for the hugs you’ve received and go out and give some more!!!
I usually say I’d rather walk ANYWHERE than take a bike! Well, Lagos is my zone plus keke napeps can help solve that problem for me and as a Lagos girl, I’m still not ashamed to say that I had never climbed a bike a.k.a. okada in my life – until today!
I waited and waited and tried to find alternate routes but Ganaija fam, God wasn’t having it so I climbed that bike and it was a pretty decent ride. I climbed like a pro and clung on to the driver for the first minute or so – I guess the guy suspected I was a JJC to bike hopping (probably until I asked him to slow down so I could adjust my skirt and he probably thought that was why I held him at first). Anyway the descent in my opinion was fine though people screamed a little but I landed well 😉
The second time today I was like a pro, up in one swift motion and down in another – though my legs wobbled a bit when I got down but I had watched how to get down so I did pretty good!!! Lol
Anyhow, I’m grateful I’m alive aand well and standing on my own two feet and that the bike men didn’t throw me away and that I’m slowly getting over my ‘bikeophobia’ (whether this last on is a good thing or not is another issue *sigh*). #GratitudeAttitude just 18 days to go …
Moi 🙂 :* ❤
