My Appreciation Letter To 2012 by colly227(m): 1:32pm On Dec 25, 2012
Dear 2012,

I feel so sad you are about leaving for good…the memories of the time we spent together will linger in my heart forever. I remember the very day we met, It was a very lonely and depressed night for me when every of my friends have gone to church while some went to party….I was down with the feeling of unaccomplishment. That very night I locked myself up in the room, resting my head on a wet pillow and gripped with the thoughts of taking my life.

Soon it was about 11:55pm and the never ending bangs of fireworks kept resounding, I never received any sms nor calls from anyone cos I didn't send any neither did I call to wish anyone a happy new year….all these made me realize how forgotten and meaningless my life was, I felt so useless and unimportant but in a twinkle of an eye I began of have a rethink, these feeling of confidence began to show up, I wiped my tears and laughed uncontrollably for no reason then I told myself I was never going to make a wish or resolution cos the one's I made in the subsequent years was never manifested. Few minutes later I met you, and you told me to stay focused even though nothing was working so good for me, you told me to smile even when I am hurt, you said I should never beg when I don't have, i should be happy even if the price of Garri rises.

A week after we met was my birthday, I had no penny to celebrate it, I couldn't even buy myself a birthday card since I got none from anyone but your words of advice kept echoing in my ears, I smiled and believed you had a surprise for me which you didn't want to reveal…….here am I today, months rolled by with huge unbelievable surprises and still counting before you leave.

I am writing in appreciation of the house you provided me, the smiles you put through my face all through the time we spent together, you turned my business from grass to grace, took me from zero to hero level, added digits to my finance, provided me unexpected visa and most importantly kept me alive….I did not expected this as I wished for nothing when we met. All I can say is thank you so much.

Please let your younger brother 2013 know that I am a grateful person who appreciates every little thing and you left some of my projects uncompleted, he should carry on from where you will stop as I believe he can do better than you did once you pass your wisdom to him.

Thank you so much once again as I see you off to the exit terminal in the next few days.

Colly.

^Appreciation is hard to find.
We live our lives, like, we are the only ones, that make things possible.
We forget to be thankful to others - the ones who made significant impacts in our lives.
Way to go Colly!
Merry Xmas boo boo

Merry Christmas to you too Cuddlemii....No man is an island like the saying goes. Sometimes critics get more kudos as they always present a stepping stone to greater heights.

I had to check ur other posts and threds you've opened in the past just to get a clearer view of your person. I honestly thought you were a teenager exhibing this youthful vibes. But allas,you are supposedly and adult.
Sir,pray,tell,what's with this first/2nd/3rd to comment jagons your group of followers now indulge in? Does Seun pay the first ten people that comment on any thread?
Is there a satisfaction you kind derive from knowing you commented first on a thread?
Does this your actions make you anything but an adult?
I am tired of your kind,sir. Grow some senses. The new year approaches.
Thank you.
A merry christmas to you.

More reason we all have to start reporting them through the report button, I can't wait for them to be banned, the more ban that is ditched out the lesser the number of kids we have left on nairaland.

Although i feel d flow, i must Saч dis was a total Misplaced appreciation:

Dear God, tis you I'd rada give all d glory ƒoя thus far , you kept us all .

I'm truely grateful!

Give ♏ԑ d heart to help d broken hearted. More grace to be that channel of blessings

But above all, when i'v eaten and are full, the humbleness to return all praise to you !

We grateful!

When did 2013 become a blessing showerer.

It's your decisions that will determine what kind of year 2013 will be.

So for those that will die in 2013, does that mean they will offend 2013 or to those who died this year does it mean they offended 2012.

SMH.

2012 has been my most successful year so far since I started professional blogging and writing.
I am really very glad and grateful to God for making 2012 an awesome year of favours for me and my family.
I give God all the glory.
HALLELUJAH!
