I was thinking about what to write today, and in as much as I have a lot to be thankful for, I couldn’t decide what to write on. So, in the midst of all my thinking, I decided I needed a shower, and then it hit me!

Some of you are probably going to laugh at this one, but today…. I am thankful for the heat of the sun, especially the Nigerian sun!

Lol, yes, I know its the same sun that we see all over the world, but I’m pretty sure anyone who has been anywhere in Nigeria will tell you the sun there is something else!

The thing is though, here in Ireland, the sun doesn’t shine that often, and when it does, it doesn’t give that much heat, especially this time of the year. In fact, it’s quite easy to feel unmotivated and lazy because the weather can just be down right depressing and it’s so cold and dull, you really just want to stay in bed, drink tea and watch TV all day.

So, today, I choose to be grateful for the sun and the heat it offers. We often tend to take the little things around us for granted, but we shouldn’t. The things that are nothing to you and the things that you complain about are often things that a lot of people would give a lot for. So I am grateful for the sun, both in Ireland and in Nigeria. Grateful for the warmth it offers and the smile it often puts on my face 🙂
