Hark The Herald December Brings



Hi readers!
I find it quite unbelievable that the year 2016 is almost over. Didn’t we shout happy new year just yesterday? I kid! I kid! How are you today? Fine I hope. I really appreciate all your nice comments, prayers and kind words on my previous post regarding the launch of my natural hair website House of Naturals. I’d hug you all but due to distance constraint, I’m sending virtual hugs. Welcome to December! November went by so fast I tell you. Sweet November I termed it and indeed it was sweet. By the way, you should totally see the movie ‘Sweet November’ starring Keanu Reeves. It is one of my best movies of all time.

Earlier yesterday, I was complaining to a friend how I didn’t get to achieve some of my goals this year lol. He threw his head back and laughed. His reply was exactly what I had forgotten. Gratitude. The act of giving thanks is one that is of really high value. Give thanks in all we do, what we get and that which we are yet to get. Also, things happen at their own time according to the will of God. So if you’re not getting what you want yet, be patient God has it under control.

Sometime this month two years ago, I put up my first post on this blog and I have to say it has been a great ride here. I have met so many life changing and wonderful people through this blog and I thank God for that. I am especially grateful because, I hope this blog has inspired one person or the other in a way.

Christmas is synonymous to December aye? I really do love Christmas carols and the change in the air during the festive season. Hark the Herald happens to be one of my favorite carols. By the way, Shop Maju is slashing down prices on some of their tops daily. They look so adorable and you should get one for yourself . This is not a paid advert though, you deserve to look good this Christmas. These Sfd by Ziza sandals will make such a cool Christmas gift for me though. Just saying *winks*

December got me feeling some good type of way. How does December make you feel like? Got any good or bad memories associated with Christmas? Has the harmattan hit your side yet? How is your end like? Let’s talk in the comments section. The best part of posting here is getting your feedback and comments. What are your thoughts about this post?
