You guessed right. Its my Birthday again. I am neither superstitious nor a numerologist. I don’t also readily attach much metaphysical meanings to certain number forms as many people are wont to, yet today, this birthday with this unique number has this very special feeling about it and this is not just about me…the whole world seems hooked by it. There are adverts all over the place, new products being launched, musicians releasing new albums, many marriages fixed and yes many special church programmes are going to take place today. I saw the flier for one such church programmes some days ago tagged “At the eleventh hour” and it was interesting listening to the Man of God go on and on about how the 11th hour (which comes to life in the unique date 11.11.11) is an hour of favour.
Favour is one thing i can do with right now. Favour is what i wish myself on this day. The past one year has had its successes and disappointments. Indeed i had expectations that on this day certain things would have come through. Some did, many didn’t, But in the midst of it all i have had so many reasons to be thankful and to look forward to a better deal in the year ahead.
On this day, I thank all those who have contributed to making my year wonderful. My parents and siblings, my colleagues and friends. A quick special shout out to Mimi who has been solidly there all the way. I appreciate all those who read my blog and my other writing scattered all over cyber space for their kind comments and feedbacks. I salute all who have patiently waited for the release of my book and who have shown me support to extents unimaginable to the ordinary mind. I thank everyone!
Today i look forward to my phone buzzing on end, my facebook wall losing its order and my twitter handle scoring more mentions than ever before. I look forward to many other fun stuff. But above all, i look forward to the future determined to be the best at what i do and confident that God will generously grant me enough favour to lead me to attaining all my dreams.
Its my birthday people…join me in celebrating this special day!
