Good day everyone, how have we all been these past weeks? I believe we are all fine and well.
I am a very occupied person and this accounts for the reason why I was off for a while. Had to focus on a very important primary project but I’m done now💃😁.
Well, yesterday was my birthday. It marked the beginning of another year for me, so, HAPPY NEW YEAR to me🙂. After all was said and done, I decided to come up with a fictional gift to myself. So… grab a popcorn, sit still and enjoy!😘
It was very late at night. The birthday bash organised by my friends was mind blowing! I didn’t expect that much from them. God bless my friends for me. I received a whole lot of messages, calls, and gifts from well-wishers and trust me- it really made my. I felt so so special and happy. Infact, happy is an understatement… I was joyous 😀.
The party has finally come to an end now and all my friends and visitors have gone and I am finally left alone in my room adorned with purple flowers(courtesy: mom). I really cannot wait till tomorrow to open up my gifts. Or maybe I should wait to open it in the presence of my siblings. But I am too excited I don’t think I can wait anymore. My hands picked up what looked like a tiny package: a friendship note and a wristwatch from Emmanuel… Awnn. I picked up another gift: a black gown from my bestfriend with a note that says ‘please grow more sense this year‘😂. A pack of chocolates and a friendship band from my sister. A silver heels from Simi..wow. A book written by Kenneth Hagin, a bunch of Nora Robert’s new series, and a juice pack from Mason. Double wow. A Caribbean skirt from Dad. Looks oversized though😂. A teddy bear and silver chain from my brother. I expected more. A top and a pink chocker from Lola.😁 The biggest gift of all was from Mom: a dress, three packs of chocolates, a gold fancy bag, and two books on how to find the right partner. Really!
I closed my eyes in an attempt to sleep then a question popped in my head: ‘have you thanked God yet for His gift ?’ What gift? I asked within me. I started looking all around to see if there was an hidden gift somewhere. Seeing nothing, I sat on my bed and closed my eyes to think of what the gift could possibly be. Did someone give me a gift during the party that I don’t know of? What could the gift possibly be? A book? My favourite food? Or…- Yes! Oh my God! How could I have forgotten? I said to myself. Truly, I received a very important gift. It’s the most beautiful gift I have ever had in my entire life. Guess who gave me those gifts😀. God. Yes God. He gave me His love. It is the biggest gift I can ever hope for. He also gave me the gifts of life, good health, a wonderful family, good friends, happiness, and above all, the gift of forgiveness.
I immediately went down on my knees and thanked Him for a life well spent. Despite the pandemonium happening all around me, I am still alive, hale, hearty, and living a good life. It’s not the best life yet, but it’s worth every bit of it!
😁😁 Y’all enjoyed the story right?? Once again, Happy New Year to me!! The best gift I can receive from you who are reading this are your comments, likes and shares.
