Thankful Thursday 28 June 2018

Another month has gone by and we are halfway through the year now! It’s crazy how fast 2018 is flying by, but I am grateful for most of the experiences I’ve gone through so far. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings me.

T-Minus five days until my birthday and mom ordered me a gluten and dairy free birthday cake. The bagel shop’s owner’s daughter is a baker and is in the business of making allergy free cakes. Mom got in touch with her and I can’t wait to see what the cake will look and taste like. This will be my first birthday gluten-free. Someone at my full-time job is finding gluten-free treats for me to make my birthday extra special as well. I am thankful for both.

My birthday is 4 July and someone I work with at the library has a birthday on 3 July. She wished me a happy early birthday tonight, I did the same and I will make her a card. I am thankful for the library and I am thankful Steph took my picture tonight for my Happiness Box Project. The theme for summer reading this year is “Libraries rock” and I love the shirts we were given. I wanted a photo so I can remember this for the rest of my life.


On Monday, Kathleen also gave me a surprise – I am truly grateful for her as well.


What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I forgot that you were born on the 4th of July. I can tell you are excited about your upcoming celebration. Be sure to take a picture of the gluten and dairy free birthday cake and let us know how you liked it. You have the most thoughtful friends and coworkers. Maybe that should not surprise me because you get back what you give, and you are one of the most thoughtful people I have ever met. I wish every member of society would help get the ball rolling in this direction by being extra nice to others instead of hateful. I am thankful that there are enough of us left to have reason to hope.

    Enjoy the rest of your week and weekend, dear friend JM!
