Gratitude Day 26

Day 26 of 30 Days of Tessism leaves gratitude for what delights the eye.

Gratitude: I am grateful today for the majesty and awesome beauty of Nigeria. I still cannot believe I am here. After years of tales of Africa’s beauty, I am here to witness it. There are trees like nothing I have seen before. There are endless stretches of green land and red clay. I am grateful to see this with my adult eyes that can appreciate them in this lifetime. It is incredible.

Gratitude Day 16

Day 16 of 30 Days of Tessism brings gratitude for a fulfilled wish.

Gratitude: Today I am grateful that I was finally able to travel to Nigeria after 30 years.  In spite of sad circumstances, I am glad to be here.  It has been an extremely comforting experience.  My homecoming was no sooner or later than it had to be.  I came here at the perfect time for me.  Thankfully, my birthplace  has welcomed me with open arms and has relieved me of any regret.  For that, I am grateful.
