On Sunday when mom had her Pampered Chef, I was chatting with Marsha about The Happiness Box Project Instagram and if I should post personal photos that I fill my happiness box with. The personal things that make me happy. She responded, “it’s your page and you can do whatever you want.” I ended up posting a poll and many wanted to see the personal photos.
Like Instagram, I’m going to post personal things that make me happy and grateful. I haven’t scrapbooked in a month; I’ve been busy with NaPoWriMo and reading for book discussion groups. I plan on going gung-ho with scrapbooking in May. I still fill my happiness box daily.
Without further ado, I’d like to mention what I am thankful for today.
Hooray for kind people! It’s been a month since I’ve last ice skated and I will admit that I hug the sides a bit. I was skating along last Friday, 20 April, and this young lady stopped to tell me I was doing great and that she loved my jacket. She wanted a picture with me, so she took a photo with her phone, then took a photo with my phone. She gave me a big hug. It was so sweet.
As I mentioned above, I saw Marsha on Sunday. It had been two years since I last saw her and it was great catching up. We will get together soon and I can’t wait. This year I want to spend more time with friends because I forgot all about them when trying to move to Canada. I am so thankful for my friends and family.
Today, someone from my full-time job sent me a nice little positive e-mail. I needed that this morning and I was thankful for that co-worker. I’m also thankful for the library.
What are you thankful for?

Hi, Jessica Marie!
The happiness you expressed in this post is infectious. When you go skating you always seem to find a friend. It was very nice of that young lady to pay you compliments and request a photo op. I well remember Marsha from your posts about her on your old blog. I can hardly believe it has been two years since you and she got together. Encouraging emails from co-workers are always appreciated. Email and the internet didn’t even exist through most of my working years, but it always meant a lot to me when a co-worker put a positive note in my mailbox or spoke a kind word in passing.
Stay happy and have a wonderful week, dear friend JM!
Thank you, Shady. 🙂 Since this past Friday I went to the Opera, next Friday I want to go ice skating again. I look forward to adventures since I tend to meet many kind people.
Tomorrow I am handing out the muffins, candy, and notes. I really hope my co-workers enjoy it.
Have a great week ahead, dear friend!
