Thankful.. :)



Hiya

Wow, I’ve been away for a little while. Blame it on laziness, majorly.

I’ve been just alright. This month stuff have happened that have made me realize how important it is to always be thankful to God.

Should I start from when I woke up one morning early in the month and could not empty my bladder or pass stool (I had been constipated for daysss). And how a catheter had to be inserted and my bowel evacuated manually by a nurse, as I screamed like a mad woman and then felt all that pain afterwards.

Eeew, I know...

Nowadays, I thank God for the gift of a functioning urinary system and gastrointestinal system. Little things like waking up in the morning and being able to use the bathroom, I’m thankful for.


******************


I thank God for how far He has brought me in life. Sometimes our mind is so clouded by the things we really want, things that our hearts are set on, that we fail to really see how much we are blessed by God.

When my final result was released at school, I wept like a baby. It wasn’t a bad result, at all. It was really good. But I wept, because I really aimed higher and was just so close to meeting my goal. But by the time, I saw how many people were battling with poor grades and the inevitable case of having to do a re-sit examination, I was thankful. I am not making fun of these people, I’m just grateful to God. It took me a while to really talk some sense into my head and look back into my past to see how much God has been there for me. And I’m confident He knows where I’m still going to and how far I would go.

Sometimes it so easy to blame God and be so ungrateful. I was so ashamed of myself for not being thankful, even with all He has done for me.


******************


I’ve completed driving school. The first day my dad decided I should take a car out, while he sat by my side, I bashed the car badly. It was a sort of accident. It happened so fast. I’m just thankful it wasn’t worse than that, because it could have been.

It was a really scary experience. I’ve been saying since, that I’m never going to try driving again in my life (in my mind sef I know I’m fibbing to myself...lol), but after the hustle for public transport that I experienced yesterday ehn, I’m having a re-think. I’ll just have to overcome my fears.

I’m really thankful to God for everything, including you guys that stop by to read and/or comment and my new followers.  

:)

Thanks for stopping by.

    There are really many things in life to be grateful to God for that we sometimes over look and take for granted. Until something hits us square in the face and make us realise this.

  7. Wow! you really have a lot to be thankful for. I can't imagine the pain of having a catheter through the urinals o. I'm glad you're a lot better and have more things to be thankful for. When we thank God for the breath of life, He supplies us with the bread of life. If we cannot think, we cannot thank.

    Love the blog!

    1. Chaii it was painful!! Before I was taken to the hospital, I had it in the back of my mind that surely, I would need to have a catheter inserted. But, the reality of things only hit me when I saw the Doctor unwrapping the catheter. I screamed before the insertion sef..just the thought of it. I was like, "chaii, this pain must be just like that of childbirth"...lol

      Just happy and thankful that it's over.

      "When we thank God for the breath of life, He supplies us with the bread of life. If we cannot think, we cannot thank."..... Yeah, true.. you couldn't have said it better.

      I'm grinning from ear to ear now...lol..Thanks!

  10. One time, while I was in secondary school, I had a massive case of constipation. It lasted for over a week, with fellow students offering all kinds of remedies (oranges, beans, lots of water, put Robb in your anus!) When I was finally able to go home (I was in a boarding school) they still tried putting me on a diet of vegetables, mostly ugwu. When we went to the hospital, the doctor first stuck his hand up my ass (a man doctor!), then the verdict was they'd have to do an enema. It was painful and highly embarrassing, so I feel your pain.

    Congrats on your results!

    1. Wow!!!
      I was constipated for five days. When the doctor, also a man in my case, put his hand in there, he decided to go for manual evacuation instead of do an enema.

      Yeah, painful and highly embarrassing...yuck.. sorry about your constipation, though it was a long time..lol.. Feel the pain you must have felt too.

      Thanks so much!!

      I'm glad you stopped by..:)

  12. It always takes a situation to bring someone closer to God and you don't appreciate the little things until you don't have them anymore. I am happy that you are praising GOD THROUGH your circumstance because he is the only way you will reach your full blessing! Stay strong my dear, you can do it!
