2016 – in review

A couple of hours more to go.

It’s amazing how we’ve come from January 1st 2016 to December 31st 2016. 366 days almost gone, with only a few meagre hours left to call the year a day.

I bet we are all grateful to see this day. I sure am. It went by so fast but I am, and I know we all are, grateful for every one of its day we were blessed with.

As I woke up this morning, still in my mother’s house and getting set to return to PH, I remembered that if my father was still alive, today would have been his and my mother’s 40th Wedding Anniversary. I remembered this morning and then, I simply thanked God for “what is” today.

How has the year been for you?

How did 2016 treat you?

For me, it started me on the last walk of my thirties and just for that, I learned, chose to learn, many things. I chose to let go many things and I chose to begin to “foresee” the coming of many things. It was a good year. Not as good as I’d hoped, and prayed, for but good. Good, so I am thankful for the moments and the hours and the weeks and the months and the year I was blessed with.

It was a good year for me as a writer and a blogger too. Again, not as good as I’d prayed for, but surely better than last year. This year, I published 5 eBooks, one of them a novel I’d been re-writing since 2014. It was a good year too for lifeandspices.com.

So many things I prayed for and did not receive. So many things I did not pray for and was given. So many, many more things I am still hopeful for. Today, the 31st day of December 2016, the very last day of the year, I say THANK YOU, LORD for 2016.

So, how was 2016 for you?

How was lifeandspices.com for you in 2016?

This was our first full year as a self-hosted blog, so share your experience here this year.

Which one of our free-reads delighted you most?

We had quite a few —

* House on the Hill

* Key to my Heart

* Body on my Doorstep

* Dinner For Two

* Beyond the Grave: Blood of the Innocent

* Mercenary Wife

And a bunch of short stories and Flash Fictions.

So, which one did it for you? Which was your 2016 all-round number-one?

As we reminisce and share, I thank everyone for being a part of LifeandSpices.com in the year 2016. I thank all who made it a point, and an act of affection, to purchase any, or all, of my eBooks. As this year draws to a close, I pray the Lord God Almighty to bless you and to lead you, and yours, majestically in 2017.

Thank you for sharing this year with me. I love you.

    Happy new year TM. I wish you a prosperous new year. 2017 has been declare a year of all round recovery and so shall it be for all of us amen. HOTH was one of the best so far. Mercenary wife though a fiction but I know a friend that her story is so close to MW. You are talented and creative I can only pray that God will continue to bless your inspiration. Regards to your wonderful husband. My Angels sent their greetings and a bear hug.

    • I claim the blessing of all-round recovery in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
      Wow! Someone in something similar as MW? Life indeed must be stranger than fiction. Do hope it worked out for her.
      And oh yeah, HOTH was a great read… and a pleasure to write. Lol
