Another Week

To God be the glory, for yet another week he has granted unto us. Yes, i am grateful for not everyone made it through the weekend, i am grateful for it was eventful, the movies i watched and laughed. The headache too has cleared after a number of sleepless nights.

But i won’t hide the fact that i am looking forward to the public holiday already. Archbishop Janani Luwum day, may his sou;l rest in eternal peace. On a day like this  one gets the joy  of another mini weekend.

We also get to go over the same routine of a work week since nothing new or eventful is happening. But nevertheless we hope for the best and pray for miracles for in God we trust.

This Month

Dear Me,

Of late, there are many ideas running through my mind. I don’t know what to do with all this time between 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm . A number of business ideas have popped up but we are yet to discuss all the details. A girl needs to get another source of income.

But for a start, we have decided to try our luck at writing, i hope this occupies us and helps us develop our writing skills. We hope for the best with our new found adventure.

Yours truly,

Me
