Its Christmas

Its Christmas day and I'm thinking that this day deserves a post all of its own. In Nigeria, there is a saying that goes, "Not everyday is Christmas", usually invoked when something that is expected to happen, does not happen. So on the day that is indeed Christmas, I hope that all those things that you had hoped would happen, but haven't happened during all the days that have gone by since last Christmas, will happen today.

Well, even if they don't, look at it this way...there's another Christmas coming along just 364 days down the road. So hang in there. I like to hold on to the belief that sooner or later, all that we hope for will come to be. Merry Christmas..

Now we know. 25/12/2009 will remain the day we produced our own bomber. Sad but true.

"Sad but true", yes Beauty. But its important perhaps that "our" bomber was not spawned at home. I like to believe this anyway, since his very own family alerted the authorities well in advance.. Happy New Year.

Wishing you a Happy New Year too Mama Shujaa. May all our hopes and aspirations for 2010 come true. I apologise for leaving this response rather late. I guess I was preoccupied with weighty thoughts..
