Thank YOU for being there for ME this year

This year has been a great one for me.
Here is a list of my blessings for this year:
1.      I was lucky to serve my pupilage at the Legal Department of Kenya’s National Assembly for six months from February to August this year;
2.      I was able to successfully finish my Post-graduate diploma in law in August;
3.      I was able to serve internship at the Law Society of Kenya from September to December this year;
4.      I got admitted to the Bar on 10th December this year, a dream which took me 6 years of study;
5.      My brother graduated at the Kenyatta University with magna cum laude in Economics and Statistics;
6.      I was able to board a plane for the first time in my life on March this year;
7.      I stayed in a five-star hotel—Serena Beach Hotel—for one week in the month of March as part of the team that was working on the Standing Orders of the Senate and the National Assembly;
8.      I have been lucky to be to Sarova Stanley Hotel, Hilton Hotel, Crowne Plaza, Sarova Panafric Hotel, UN Gigiri and Intercontinental Hotel;
9.      My mum stayed in Nairobi for a week, the longest time she has stayed which was very fulfilling to me;
10.  My Sister Lizzy had the opportunity to stay in Nairobi and learn so much in terms of ambition something which I could have never done with mere talk and advice.
Tororot has been very kind to me this year and I have achieved a lot. I have been humbled by these experiences. Soon, I will be going to the village to re-unite with my family, relatives and friends. I am very excited about the year 2013 because this year has been more about personal sacrifice. All that I have done will lay a strong foundation in what I will achieve next year. I must say that I have set very high targets for myself next year. They are those targets which will fundamentally alter the course of my life forever. The good thing about it is that I have already put things in place for it.
Fellow pilgrims, as we draw near to Christmas and Happy New Year, I want to thank you so much for the support you have offered me. Today, I want to say that you are very special in my life and that I am today what I am because of you. We are all inter-connected. Yes, “ubuntu” guides all of us, a la Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
