How are you? Thank you for taking a stroll here today.
How is January going for you? Is it one jolly ride or a snail fracas?? This is January for me!!
The Prodigal Customer!!
I had planned not to have the Rolex this month, but like my shallow pockets decided, I did. Last Friday, I just could not afford that fancy chicken Luwombo at Finex’s Restaurant or that cozy desert served at Seven Seas Restaurant. So I walked up to my Rolex guy’s stand the moment I alighted from the taxi. He looked at me, his mouth agape and after a while, I decided break the silence with “gyebaleeko sebbo“. In reply he said— Nga ombuuzeeko, mbadde manyi toli nam’ Uganda eno (translated as, I haven’t seen you in a while, I thought you are not in the country). I smiled gawkily and before i could order, he said leero otwala Chapati billi ne amagi ku bill yange(today you shall take with you a Rolex made of two eggs and two chappatis on my bill). The shock, the inner happiness and the exhaling knowing a miracle however small, happened right before my eyes— If I should add, it is not everyday you meet such souls and therefore this is really me glad I was the prodigal customer whom the Rolex man welcomed back with open hands..
Why’s January so long?
My face scrunched up in shock just last week when I got an alert. In the middle of one of those conversations, a friend mentioned “We have only been a full two weeks into the year??” I have usually regarded people that say January has an entire “360 days” as ridiculous but I might as well agree… 2 Weeks?? People I feel like I Have lived 3 months into this new year; And it is not that it is getting hard in any way whatsoever but honestly…… 2 weeks???
But then, don’t mind me.. That is just my freckled mind and I. Father in Heaven, I thank you for thus far we have gotten into the year!!
Goals and Baskets
So what is it about this year, first off, I am very excited for the kind of posts that will be appearing(featured) here. I feel that the Lord has somewhat placed within me a deep need to expound relationships and the depression that comes from some of them.
We will be reading stories of the people that have walked that path and also getting to know what solutions they offer on how to be happy, content and maintaining a positive outlook on our environments.
I would like to leave a sense of wonder on what to expect from this blog this year, but you can get to suggesting so that we are partly in-charge of the plot twists this year, 2018..
P.S– As long as it is still January, HAPPY NEW YEAR PEOPLE!!
