Thankful Thursday 5 July 2018

First of all, I want to thank everyone who reached out to me yesterday. I know I am still young and I have a lot to accomplish in five years, you are all right: things always change and it’s best to take things one day at a time and be patient. People at both jobs said the same thing; I am thankful for all of you.

I am also thankful for the birthday party yesterday; while some questions were awkward, it was still nice that they did that and my aunt made a gluten-free salad just for me. As a good friend at the full-time job told me this morning, “I know you are depressed, but your family still loves you and you should be thankful that they took the time out of their day to have a party for you, especially since they special ordered gluten and dairy free food you can eat.” She is right, but I won’t beat myself up over it.

Today we had a going away party for Shonte. She starts a new job next week and I am thankful I was invited. Shonte works at my full-time job. We had a great time and she was totally surprised.

What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I am happy to see the smiling faces in your latest Thankful Thursday edition. Your friends and family joined together to help celebrate your holiday birthday. Sharing and caring make the world go around. If more people would set aside some time in their day to reach out and make somebody happy, we could have a much better world. Good luck to Shonte as she begins her new job.

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend JM!
