Yoruba Word Of The Week : Itunu

Itunu is the Yoruba word for comfort.

Everyone needs itunu to a certain degree and about different things. 

Giving itunu to those around us should be a way of life.

However, the only one that can truly and thoroughly do so is God, our biggest comforter.

The noun is : Itunu and a simple sentence : "Oluwa tumi ni nu" (God comforted me).

May God help us give and receive comfort and may He continue to comfort us in all things.
