30 Days of Thankfulness

Today's the last day in November...and I decided to do MY 30days of Thankfulness today(that's wat it is right??) This is almost the end of the year and looking back all I see is God's Handwork in my life...His love and faithfulness are indeed forever. I give him all the Glory... So here goes

Father in heaven I thank You for everything.Father I thank You for the gift of life; I am grateful each day I wake up hale and hearty. So I thank You Father for my life today and for everyone who’s reading this post.

Father I thank You for Your Love, It has kept me whole. With You I’ve come to realise what love is. Your love is true, overwhelming, selfless and above all it’s unconditional. You are love.It’s hard to understand how a Holy being can love a sinner like me. It’s phenomenal, it’s simply beautiful. I thank & love You Lord.

Father I thank You for Your constant Protection and Guidance.How else could I have been kept safe from harm all these years? By luck? I don’t think so. You’ve given Your angels charge over me. You’re always there for me. I’m more than thankful.

Father I thank You for Your mercy. You know all the times I’ve gone astray and been afraid to pray to You for fear that You’d ignore me, or for fear that I’d hear Your voice admonishing me for going astray. Instead, You reminded me that You are a merciful God while You patiently awaited my return, and when I did, You welcomed and received me with open arms and told me how pleased You were to have me back. I thank you Lord.

Father I thank You for my family - Your gift to me. May Your Blessings and Favour remain with us. I thank You especially for my parents. You know how much I love them. Father, please keep them for many years to come. I thank you for my step parents. They made me see life in a new light. I thank you for my siblings. I can’t find the right words to express how much I love them. I thank you for the strong bond we have.

I thank you for my friends. You know how much I appreciate them & how special they are to me. I believe we’re in each others’ lives for a purpose. May your Blessings and Favour remain with them all.

Father I thank You for Your Blessings. You’ve blessed me so much, in ways that I’m even unaware of. You’ve Blessed me abundantly, more than I even need. I thank You. I know there are loads of people who will give anything to live just one day in my life. I never lack cos You’re my Provider. I’m so grateful.

Father I thank You for Your Grace. I’m who I am today by Your Grace. Your Grace is sufficient for me. I’m thankful for my Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. I thank you that I’ve got you Jesus. Knowing You is the best thing that has happened to me. You made me realise that without You life is futile. My life is in Your hands and so I can’t fall. I thank You for my faith in You. You’ve remained faithful. I’m sooo thankful Father. I can’t thank you enough…

So who's going to be tagged???? as many as havent done theirs...take time out to reflect and appreciate The Lord your God...
Remain Blessed...

an intriguing character......

This is an interesting write up I came across:

You see the thing about Bobby is.....He's very easy to understand but hard to predict; generous to a fault; caring and addictive in a funny sort of way. Simply put, he is mildly contagious......Easy to love, easy to hate. If he likes you, its because of you and the qualities you possess. If he loves you, its because you understand him. Only then will you get the best of him b'cos he'll go out of his way for you(no doubt). Though most times, people mistake his likeness for love[cant blame them...nice guys are hard to find, and there's only one that can be compared to him....him!] they try to please Bobby instead of trying to understand him..and when he returns the gesture, they mistake it for love and then they try to take it a step further by trying to own him.
Now there's nothing wrong with the desire if wanting to own something(or someone) special......its only human!! but it so happens that when they desire to own Bobby without a proper understanding of the kind of dude he really is, the end result is usually catastrophic cus it always leads to emotion:extreme hate!! why?? cos we hate wat we dont understand.
Talking about hate, Bobby can't say he hates anybody, but he simply does not associate himself with people that roll in the negative. People that only say bad things about others, or only rejoice in people's weaknesses....[its funny how they turn around and blow a fuse when people talk about them....and they are often linked to people that pretend a lot..makes no sense, cos in the end all that matters is time cos the longer an individual relates with others, the sooner the true habits pop out]....
So if you happen to get a wrong vibe from Bobby, there's a 100% chance that you fall into such category. Now when Bobby is happy with you he doesnt sense your flaws, even when you keep poking at his. If he's not happy with you he will simply avoid big deal[not that it matters anyway cos we all have flaws...yes, including the f***ing self righteous Bobby].
You really don't want to see him when he's pissed off, let alone be the one to put him in that state..don't get it twisted, he's very easy to amuse and could be the most difficult to annoy but you will definitely suceed if you push him hard enough[just like some have done in the past]..but its usually not funny and it comes with a guarantee: you will regret it!(they always do).........Easy to love...easy to hate..He respects people a lot and when he does see people that share the same virtue, he respects them even more and that, is partly why he's so f***ing hard to understand; but he does make one thing clear though: he knows exactly what he wants! It'll be wrong to think you know him well enough. If only you can understand, it'll all come to you.
So, feel free and holla at your boy today....perhaps i might be wrong!!!

Na wa o

Only extreme situations we experience or hear of that blow our minds prompt us nigerians to verbally exclaim the above popular, non-english[what we nigerians refer to as pidgin english] phrase " na wa o"...... what has prompted this you wonder?? Is she a perpetual whiner, complainer, etc etc?......ok second question first,...NO I AM NOT!!!!! First question next, the thing is in my office, I was once priviledged with roaming round the web....So much, that when I first opened this account, my catch phrase under my name was "touring the web"[catchy innit?]....I opened accounts with NDL, Facebook, Myspace, Blogspot, Tagged, Hi5 etc etc.....and I could keep myself soo oo busy hopping from one account to the other.......NOW!!!!! My office for some reason has decided to cut short our priviledges...I'm told half bread is better than none, and I quite agree, because now all my websites from facebook, to hi5 to NDL etc, have all been restricted..(that means my access has been blocked). So when I come to work, I can only access my emails, my blog page...and google(lol) I wonder where I'll be going from there...but wen am sooooo bored and I want to go somewhere to keep me busy, not to mention catch up on where I've left off especially on facebook(sniff! sniff!! whimper!! I miss facebook.. waaaaaaaaaahh!!) all I have is here.......kai! na wa o!! But am not complaining anyway, cos am feeling the bloggers I've met so far and still meeting, so hey!! half bread really is better than none yes??(lol)
I've been tagged by unnaked and i think aijay??? will update guys, me promise!!*wink*

Inspired to.....................???????????

Am not exactly a copy-cat, but when I come across certain material, or experiences(is dat d word?) etc, I'm inclined to chip in a few little kids telling stories and one shouts" too, me too....when I was ......." and dey ramble away. Well, today am just inspired to yack(as usual)..... over a few thingies I cant stop thinking of....and the top of the list is money. Now the Bible warns that the love of money is indeed the root of all evil, but it acknowledges that it answereth all things. So the biggie is how do I draw the line? Cos I look around me, I see fantastic things all over from clothing, to accessories, to automobiles, to electronics, etc and how do u get them? Money!!!! I keep thinking of places I want to see, activities I want to indulge in and how do I involve myself? Money!! I see how nicely women my age and older are dressed, how beautifully they're taken care of..whether its via them or their guys but the bottom line is Money does answer all things matter what it is.....after all, "good soup na money kill am".

Number two thing on my mind really is a am not bellyaching, neither am I whining or complaining, but am just saying or rather asking, or saying it would be nice to get mine right about now...know wat I mean bcos as usual, I look around me, I see happy(or so they seem) couples, chics proudly brandishing what they're men bought for them...some go as far as driving their cars, I hear mushy stories....I hear not so mushy stories...and I look at myself and my experiences and I ask myself 'What the Hell???' Someone said you have to kiss a few frogs to get to your prince charming.....and I wont mind getting mine now...Although God's time is the best and all that, and with a relationship comes responsibilities that I ask myself 'Am I ready for??' [Well, I think I am] I decided as I always do, to shut myself up till I start talking again to just relax and have as much fun as I can while I wait.....[Thank God for Zoe!!:-) so enough gbedun for me(lol)]

For now, those are the two main things I think of like all the time, at least Zoe is here so one is knocked off my list.....hehehehehehehehe.

Well, I'll see u guys wen December begins....then wen can discuss our plans for the approaching Holidays..........(mwuah!)

50 Things Men Wish You Knew

Universal guy truths that all women should understand
(Guys is dis true??)

1. Express yourself. It makes us proud, even if someone thinks you're wrong.

2. You look hot in running shoes and shorts. And that top thingy with the stripes.

3. Bare, tan shoulders are underrated.

4. If you think I’m speeding now, you should see me drive when you're not in the car.

5. If you're truly interested in us, don't play hard to get.

6. Shopping is a chore, not an activity.

7. When I screw up, go ahead and tell me--once.

8. No question need ever be asked through a closed bathroom door if I'm inside. I love you less with each syllable you utter.

9. I'm hot for you, not your sister or your friend or your coworker.

10. My guy friends. Not only are they not negotiable, they’re your best sign that I’m not a whack job.

11. Don't be afraid to ditch the makeup. Natural is sexier.

12. Leave the eyebrows alone. Plucked ain't pretty.

13. You can have sex with us any time you want. Seriously.

14. When the game is on, we will pay attention to you if you're nice about it. Bark, and we shut down.

15. I don't ask for directions because I’m just happy to be driving. Anywhere.

16. Masturbation is merely practice for the big game. Encourage it.

17. We crave hugs and hand-holding too. And no, it doesn't always have to lead to sex.

18. But you can have sex with us any time you want. Did we mention that?

19. There's no better sound in the world than you, having an orgasm.

20. Though the exhaust note of a Porsche Boxster is pretty damn fine, too.

21. I just may lie to make you feel good. Don’t be angry about this. You really weren't looking for the truth anyway.

22. When you get angry over some stupid little pointless thing, I question your intelligence.

23. You’re really bad at faking it.

24. If I offer my help while you're getting ready, it means you’re late.

25. Never ask me to pick out your outfit. (See above.) I will invariably get it wrong and make us even more late.

26. Giving me two or three choices, however, can be fun. Assuming you will change outfits in front of me. Slowly.

27. Err on the side of hot; I love to show you off.

28. Unless we're meeting my parents.

29. When you call us at work "just to chat," we're not really listening; we're checking our e-mail.

30. Spring means baseball and skirts. Doesn't need to be a mini-skirt; it's been a long winter.

31. Chicks who drink beer are hot. Better yet: chicks who drink beer and watch the game. Better still: chicks who buy us a beer during the game.

32. We don't mind being told we look good. Just don't call it a "cute outfit."

33. We love ponytails.

34. Being good in bed means a) enthusiasm; b) a sense of humor; and sometimes c) patience.

35. The first time? We're as nervous as you are.

36. A random unexpected grope is always welcome, even in public. Especially in public.

37. Make us laugh and we'll want to hang around.

38. Yes, I laugh really loud around the guys. And I always will, so deal.

39. Sure, men stereotypically like to solve a woman's problems. But a woman who solves her own while we watch? Instant erection.

40. You can pick the movie, but have a reason.

41. Do not expect to have a conversation via text message unless you use the words "naked" and "waiting."

42. Sometimes we wonder why any woman would want to be with us, much less someone as amazing as you. So, thanks.

43. Anytime you cook for us, we're happy.

44. If you can hit a golf ball 150 yards, we just might fall in love.

45. No, I don't remember what he said next. Or she. Or anybody, for that matter. I'm a guy, not a tape recorder.

46. We love you even more because you know we need to go out with the guys once in a while.

47. And we love it when you hang with us guys, too.

48. We have a keen sense of imminent danger. It sounds like, "Do you think she's pretty?"

49. Don't rely on us for keeping you up on the news.

50. Never say, "I know you better than you know yourself." Nobody does.

What He Hears You Say

For years, researchers have claimed that women talk way more than men — one oft-cited stat is that women use 20,000 words a day while men use only 7,000. But it turns out that women and men both use an average of 16,000 words per day, according to a recent study from the University of Texas at Austin.

Lost in Translation: What he really hears when your lips are moving.
You say: "Ugh, my boss is horrible. I had the worst day. "
You mean: "I really need to vent about my day."
He hears: "Tell me how to fix my relationship with my boss."

You say: "Hey, can we talk?"
You mean: "I have something important to tell you."
He hears: "You screwed up, buddy."

You say: "Oh, those shoes don't go with that belt. Why don't you wear the brown ones?"
You mean: "I just want to help you look good."
He hears: "Aw, the widdle baby can't dwess himself!"

You say: "Let's straighten up in here."
You mean: "Let's straighten up in here."
He hears: "I resent that you're a pig."

You say: "I'm so sorry you had such a rough day. You must feel terrible."
You mean:"I want you to know I empathize with you."
He hears: "I feel sorry for you, you sad sack of a man."

You say: "Do you think that woman's hot?"
You mean: "Tell me that I'm hot."

Men's ability to process language and understand what's being said to them begins to diminish starting in their 30s. Women retain this ability until menopause. Source: Why Men Never Remember and Women Never Forget by Marianne J. Legato, M.D.(hmmmm)

Why doesn't he see what I need?The love expert says... He takes everything personally."If I call a friend and say, 'I'm having a terrible day,' she'll drop everything and ask, 'Are you okay?' A woman hears complaints as an invitation to move closer. But a man hears complaints as an indication that he's failed. He measures his very worth by his ability to provide and protect, so in his mind, if he were doing his job, she wouldn't be unhappy.

"Does this mean a woman can never complain to a man? Of course not! Men really want to please women. All you have to say is, 'Would you help me with...' or 'I would love it if....' Go beyond the complaint or criticism and get at the desire. High-maintenance women don't scare men. Men actually like it because it gives them a clear set of rules for how to improve, and they can tell when they're succeeding." —Pat Love, coauthor of How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It

Why doesn't he understand me?The linguist says... He assumes you're trying to be the boss of him."In general, men focus on hierarchy and women on connection. I always find it fascinating to go back to studies of how kids talk: Boys use talk to negotiate their status within a group, while girls use talk to negotiate closeness. This difference can cause misunderstandings with apologies, for example. When a man makes some small transgression, his wife might feel that if he'd just say, 'I'm sorry,' it would be over. But he won't, and then you end up arguing about why he won't apologize. For many women, an apology means, 'I care that I let you down; I care about you.' If he doesn't apologize, it's like he doesn't care. But for men, asking for an apology is a demand that he publicly humiliate himself. He thinks apologizing is a sign of weakness, and that you'll use it against him, because that's what another man would do. So when you say, 'Why won't you apologize?' he hears, 'I caught you in an error and I'm going to rub your nose in it.'"

Deborah Tannen, Ph.D., professor of linguistics at Georgetown University and author of You Just Don't Understand: Women and Men in Conversation
