Gratitude February – Day 15

Today I’m thankful for…

My BCA family!

The way we’re so excited to see each other, and never seem to run out of fun memories. The way we show up for each other, and support one another through the good and through the curve balls life throws. The way our senses of humor are so in sync.

I’m thankful for you all, and to have spent those formative 6 years of secondary school with you. You’re not just friends, you’re family.

And to those who have left us along the way, continue to rest in perfect peace 🙏

In loving memory of my dear Emeka.

Gratitude February – Day 5

Today I’m grateful for…

The little things that make me laugh!

Like Sitcoms!

I’m not big on TV and when I do watch it has to be lighthearted. Sitcoms are my preferred TV genre, my favourite of all time being F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I can quote more lines from that show than I care to admit.

A close second is Modern Family!

The cast of Modern Family is all outstanding, but you see Gloria Pritchett? She cracks me up to no end! Her mannerisms and all, she might as well be a Nigerian woman from Ikorodu. The way she screams ‘Manny!’ and ‘Jay!’, her vanity, her insecurities, and who insists on wearing heels at a Disney Park!? It doesn’t get any more Nigerian than that. She’s the Colombian equivalent of the Nigerian Aunty who wears gele and a full face of makeup, lashes and all, to a simple family picnic.

Who’s your favourite Modern Family Character?

And what are you thankful for today?
