Gratitude February – Day 28

Today I’m thankful for…

The grace and strength to stay consistent through these 28 days of gratitude.

And for a beautiful ending to the month of February. It’s been a month of many wins for my family and I, from my husband’s new job to my cousin’s wedding, and so many other things in between.

I hope you enjoy a beautiful new month, and remember to stay thankful.

Gratitude February – Day 27

My gratitude to God today is expressed in the words of a song we sang in church this morning; 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman.

You’re rich in love
And You’re slow to anger
Your name is great
And Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness
I will keep on singing

Ten thousand reasons
For my heart to find

Gratitude February – Day 24

Today I’m thankful for…

My toddler and the lessons I learn everyday just by watching him be.

Today’s lesson is on enjoying the little things, like an empty box that he loved playing with all day.

I hope I remember to take a breather from the intensity of adulthood every now and then, and bask in the pleasure of my empty box, whatever that may be .

Gratitude February – Day 18

Today I’m thankful for…


I took the day off work today, just to get some rest! I have a few outstanding vacation days from last year and I intend using them all! When you work at a fast-paced organization or team it’s easy to feel like things won’t go on smoothly if you take some time off, but trust me you’re not indispensable.

I fell into this trap last year, putting off my vacation days because I didn’t want to return to a backlog of emails and tasks.

I understand that it can be hard to take time off work when you don’t get paid days off, or have to pick that additional shift for extra income. I pray that if that’s your current situation this season passes quickly and you can take that much-needed break.

This year I’m prioritizing rest and taking days like these just to relax on the couch and watch cartoons with my little bestie, publish a blog post, do a little cleaning, and listen to some audio books (I struggle to enjoy audio books by the way). And it’s okay if I do return to a backlog of emails and tasks, la vie continue!

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 14

Today I’m thankful for…

My husband!

For allowing me to thrive, and for constantly pushing me to be the best version of myself.

For always always putting me first! For taking Daddy duties so seriously. For doing the heavy lifting when it comes to chores, with no complaints whatsoever.

And for 5 years and counting of making me yummy smoothies 🍹
