GRATITUDE

GRATITUDE

My grandmother is the goddess of gratitude and I say this in a proud way. She shows gratitude for everything from the clothes she puts on, to the food that she cooks.

She taught me everything I know about gratitude. I lived with her from when I was about 5 years old till I clocked 18.

My mother was having trouble handling me and my little sister as my father was no more. He had passed away two years earlier.

Before he died, we were living quite a comfortable life, he worked in an oil company but my mother had made the mistake of not saving up, zero insurance and a host of other excuses due to naivety.

I could see she regretted it but what is in the past is in the past, as she always says.

Living with my grandmother has always been fun.
I still remember her preparing her delicious meals; the aroma wafting into my nostrils and as she added the last pinch of salt to the bean porridge, she would say,

“Thank you Lord that I have food to eat, some do not have while some have but cannot eat”.


Her meals were my favourite things while I stayed with her. To say that she was a good cook was an understatement. I always had a second helping of her meals; it was that good.

After meals, she would ask me to come sit on her lap as she tells me stories with lots of lessons. I learnt a lot of morals and wisdom from her.

She always told me that when we are grateful for what we already have, we make room for even more blessings.

Every morning, when she wakes, she would get on her knees and thank God for waking her and her “sweet granddaughter” up.

She would then wrap her shawl around her and take a walk in the rising sun. She said it gave her energy and strength for that day.

I have never seen my grandmother angry or pissed over anything. She always handles every situation with grace and she tries to be at peace with everyone.

“Why be at war when you can be at peace?”

She would always say. Maybe that was why she lived a long life. She lived up to a hundred years.

I was an adult when she died and her habit of gratitude has become second nature to me because during all that period I stayed with her, I learnt that gratitude was the way.


I have massively reaped the rewards of gratitude with peace of mind being a top reward.

Gratitude is key really, it would open a lot of doors for you. Practice it henceforth.
