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: 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.
