Gratitude · Personal

For these one’s, I give thanks…personal

There’s always a reason to be thankful no matter how minutiae, but today I have lots of reasons to be full of gratitude.Gratitude, Grateful, Prayer, Thanks, Blessings, Open

I am 2 day’s away from clocking 365 days of non-stop blogging and it puts me in a reminiscent mood. It may not mean much to some people, but I am still chuffed over the fact that I have diligently stayed the course.

My first book also got published over the weekend and I am totally excited about it.

The exemplary gentleman/publisher who worked with me on this project David Cronin of Moyhill publishing, Sally Cronin’s husband has been so supportive to this novice, answering all my questions down to the nitty-gritty and the book is already receiving excellent reviews.

I gained a worthy and supportive partner this last week, a fellow blogger whose articles inspire me very much. Kaylaa Blackwell of Inspired Beacon, I thank you for having enough confidence in me and finding it worthwhile to partner with me. I will be writing more on this in another post.

For amazing family and friends who don’t cease to surprise me, I am thankful you are all in my life. Your encouraging words literally fuel me. I hope that there’s something that you are thankful for today.

Below is my first Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

Out of the silent breath

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha’s poems portray images that stare us right in the face. Images of love, joy, death, pain, challenges, violation, and freedom. She writes in a language that’s rich in imagery, earthy, honest, vulnerable, yet full of the promise of hope, of loving and of Grace. A collection of light and dark soulful prose.

  1. Hi Jackie,

    A grateful heart is everything, nothing is too trivial for thanks.

    Blogging with consistency for 365 whole days is something deserving of thanks, for the strength to churn out new ideas, for the strength to respond to so many comments and build a cordial relationship with readers. Well done.

    Congrats on the new book! For you, I am going to make my second ever purchase on Amazon 😀

    1. Sister, sister, thank you very much. It’s been one heck of an interesting and enjoyable journey and I am better for it. When you read the book, I will be glad to know your thoughts and beg for a review. Meanwhile, I want to invite you for a guest post or interview. Can I have your email address?

      1. Hi Jackie,

        How are you doing?

        I haven’t been as active on the internet this week and I missed seeing your comment early enough. I’m so sorry.

        That sounds great! My email address is

        I actually wanted to let you know that I’ve been having trouble purchasing your ebook on amazon, I downloaded the kindle app on my pc, then clicked on the link to amazon which you left on your blog , but each time I click on the button that says “Kindle $6.99” absolutely nothing happens. Please let me know how else to do this.

        Thank you, have a lovely weekend. 🙂


I love it when you decorate my heart with your words..
