TGIF my ‘Gistas,
Soooo, there’s this thing that I do that I call ‘5av 5ive’ and today we fitna put a lil spin, just a small one on it and call it Friday 5av 5ive. The idea is to list 5ive favorite things you are grateful for. It could be anything. Hell, if u r like my GrandPa, u ate corn on a cob and didnt pull your dentures out. Ok, that’s reaching a lil, but ju gorrit.
Usually I do dis towards the end of the day as a reminder to myself to be grateful to my God, Maker, Oga Above, Mother Nature, whatever string I’m tugging to get intouch with my spiritual self. The list does not have to be ‘deep’. Honey chil’ I have been known to get excited at finding the last ripe plantain in a house full of Dodo addicts; I say ‘thankya’ for finding a parking spot on the base at work. And most times I breathe IN and OUT, and I give thanks for that too. So here goes my 5av 5ive for this week:
1. My son said to me this a.m “Mommy you are getting thin, I can’t see your belly anymore. (God bless kids and that unfiltered mouth. Made me lighter on ma feet tho. LOL)
2. More than 1/2 of my office went for a training this entire week, soooo got a chance to get other things done 😉
3. Pahpah was looking for his Leapster and just beside himself with frustration, Mommy to the rescue. Got up (chest puffed up) walked towards his bed looked underneath and there it was. The look on his face, priceless.
4. On day 6 of vegetarian diet (well except for Egg Whites).
5. I breathe.
Now ju try, what’s your 5av 5ive for the week? Cooome on, ju know ju wanna share 😀
