It has been one unique year indeed, one of the most challenging years in my twenty something years of existence. A lot has happened in one year, I must say that I have had to make critical decisions in various aspects of my life this year. I met some really sweet people this year, I can’t mention everyone’s name but I am sure you know how special you are to me.
I particularly want to appreciate someone super-special to me, I definitely wouldn’t have made it through all these years without him. I am not a good poet, but I just want to drop a few words to express how I feel.
“Giving my life to you is one of the greatest decisions I ever made.
I was just some young girl existing on planet earth, overwhelmed by inferiority complex but the moment you came into my life, I saw a woman I never knew existed.
Nights I felt so lonely, confused, and only tears could express how I felt, your arms were always there to wipe them away and cuddle me to sleep.
The more I know you, the more I want to know you.
It’s crazy how you love me even when I don’t love you like I should.
People sometimes see a “mess” when they look at me, but you see a “message”
In my little walk with you, I have learnt love, faith, and trust.
Thanks for giving me 6 adorable sisters, I pray you’ll continue to bless them for me.
Thank you for giving me great friends, who encourage, support, correct, pray with and for me, and who are never tired of my plenty drama.
Thanks for also giving me a man who is completely compatible with my purpose and who is not intimidated by my success.
Thank you for pearls, how far you have brought us and where you are taking us to.
Thank you for the corrections, I learnt you only chastise those you love so I see it as a rare privilege.
Though I have lost a few things, you are the reason I haven’t lost everything.
This year I ask that you help me know you more, live for others, use my gift to increase your kingdom, be a reason for someone not to give up, and most importantly fulfil destiny.
Without you I wouldn’t be here today.
I can confidently face tomorrow because I know you will always be by my side even if everyone else walks away.
I can make my boast in you because you will always defend your own.
My first love, my father, my friend, my comforter, my provider, my role model, words are not enough to describe you.
You make my life complete, no one else.”
Thank you for one more year, I am confident this one will be greater and more glorious because the steps of the righteous shines brighter and brighter unto a perfect day. I believe that this new year holds a lot for me; increase on all sides, love, clarity, and exceeding grace above all.
Looking back I think I have no regrets on the decisions I have made, some were painful, some made me feel really excited, I had to let go of some people not because they were not good enough to be in my life. I may not yet be where I want to be, but I am definitely not where I used to be. Most importantly, I am grateful for the woman I see in the mirror everyday.
