I am glad…
…that I could spend some time with my father before he passed away.
…that I could tell him that I loved him and that he was the best father that I could have had.
…that I could tell him that I loved various qualities of his character and that I can see those same qualities in my children.
…that I know that he is safe with his Lord Jesus Christ. That knowledge gives me peace amidst the grief of losing him here on this earth.
…that I was able to spend time with my mum for a few weeks after he had gone and we had some good mother/daughter time.
…that my mum was able to have a few days with us, relaxing at the coast in Ballito.
…that, even though the weather was miserable at Ballito, we had an apartment with a lovely sea view.
…that I have amazing friends in various corners of the globe.
Cannot say I am glad about being back in Lagos, but here I am 😉
And now…some photos…
The view from the apartment. The tree in the bottom right was very annoying for the purposes of taking photos 🙂
The tidal pool at Thompson’s Bay…
Waves breaking into the tidal pool…
