How 2016 Was A Good Year Around Here
Happy new year!
I have missed being here and missed you all. I hope you all had an awesome holiday. Some of you are still flexing somewhere and I envy you. Bring back chin-chin for us oo.
So erm…first of all, my Christmas was half-lit, half messed up. On the 28th, I got up and couldn’t move. My waist was on fire and I have been bedridden until then. Even as I type this, I still can’t sit up for more than five minutes or so. Awful pain. If you are passing by my house when my husband is trying to get me to stand straight, you’d think he’s beating me. Yes, the pain is so bad I cry like a baby.
But hey, forget all that. God has healed me and I can’t shout. I am fine.
Let’s talk about 2016. For almost everyone in Nigeria, it was an awful year. Emphasis on almost everyone. I know some of you didn’t even feel the crunch. If you didn’t, say ‘aye!’ Well, for the rest of us normal humans, it was tough. But God was faithful.
The year was good for me, in terms of my books. The Fourth Finger soared to heights I never imagined. And not only did it soar, it made my other books sell. This was the year of doors opening for me. Out of the top selling 25 books on Okadabooks, six of my books made it. Of the ten selling books, four of them were there. Of the 6 bestselling authors, I was number 2.
What can I say? God loves me. All my years of hard work have started finally paying off. But you guys know I didn’t do it alone. I wouldn’t have been anything without you. Your shares, likes, comments, emails, and money took me there. How can I thank you enough? You remain part of my growth. I am immensely grateful to you.
I have my weakness, mostly in my health, but it all goes away when I step on this blog and I know you’re on the other end, reading and loving what I write. And guess what…we’ve only just begun!
So, thank you so much. So, so much.
I love you – always.
Please, visit this link and drop a comment. I would appreciate it.
I also want to thank everyone who sent something to my friend, Immaculate, to help care for her ailing mother. She sends her thanks as well. God bless you all.
I will be back with It’s Another Novocaine Saturday on Saturday. You don’t want to miss it. It will shock you to the bones.
But for today, enjoy The Darker Berry which will come up shortly. All kudos to Tomi. She held the fort when I couldn’t move a muscle. I love her like kilode.
Have a wonderful new year. May God answer all your prayers and make your dreams come true. May he open doors for you as he has done for me. May he protect and provide for you. May you not know any loss or tragedy.
And for all of you searching for your Jide and Honey, James and Amaka, Lexus and Kasiobi, this will be your year! *vibrates under anointing
Can I get an amen?
God bless you all!
