Praise Thursday - What a year

Almost a year to the day, i moved to Houston and today as i get ready to leave i'm almost in tears. Cried earlier but i'm a big girl so that ends now :). Its been a great year and i'm really grateful to God. So much so i'm at a loss for words. Lets see i've celebrated birthdays, buried a friend, celebrated marriages, got the valuable job experience i needed, made friends, lost friends, i met BB, i worked hard in some areas, not so much in other areas, i gained weight and i lost it, cut my hair, its grown a lil now, traveled, become a better writer, dare i say become more sociable, fell ill with some strange sumthings, recovered.Like wooooowwwww, you don't realize how much goes into a year really. I don't think i've ever really taken stock of the value of time, how much one accomplishes, opportunities used or missed, decisions made, joys, sorrows, the highs and the lows that is packed in a year, month, week even.

Like i said its been a great year, my best friend and her mum took me in no questions asked and treated me like i was blood. We fought, we laughed, we cried, we danced, argued, i mean everything, i never felt left out, infact i wanted to kill them for including me in everything. Its so bad cos me and the bestfriend look more alike now than we did a year ago, like we are some married couple.lol. Their whole "community" took me in, everybody knows me as oye's bestfriend. My family friends/cousin (i'm not sure jo, lol) who took me in and made me feel welcome in their church and homes, introduced me to everyone, every Sunday was kinda like family time. And i did it with you guys, after all the blog was only a couple months old before i moved here, so really you have all been a part of this journey and all i can say is THANK YOU. THANK GOD for his undying mercies and favor and grace, especially because i know i have not kept my end of the deal and yet he has been faithful.

This is really bittersweet for me, i'm leaving loved ones to go be with loved ones. My sis doesn't know i'm coming so i can imagine the shock on her face. I haven't seen her since Jan 09. Plus i hope this move is only temporary and that i'll be moving to what i hope will be a semi-permanent home for me when i find a new job and it will be in the city i start skool in, in January. It will all work out, thats my assurance.

Faithful is our God - Hezekiah Walker
