Welcome on board guys, I’m so glad we all crossed over to the new year.
I don’t know about y’all, but this new year has been amazing so far. God is good.
So this post is a kinda review for 2017, (and I literally copied and edited the format from here).
It’s gonna be a “longish” read, so fasten your seat belts and LET’S ROLL!
1. What did you do last year that you had never done before?
Huh…Attended a Driving school.
2. Did you keep your new year resolutions and will you make more this year?
From saving in a piggy bank (cashed a little above 14k late November), to publishing MY FEGGO DIARIES, to committing some verses of the scripture to memory, took two creative writing courses, among others.
So I look forward to not only more resolutions, but more goals and growth this year. Amen.
3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

Ehm…no pics to share, sorry.
4. Did anyone you know die?
I wrote this poem in memory of a family friend who died towards the end of last year:
“It’s a very sad night,
For all the lives you touched
You had a heart of gold,
And gave a smile of hope
Because of what you gave,
Our lives were so enriched
And although you’re no more,
The lives you touched remain.”

Oh wonderful wonder you are.”
That’s ALL folks.
