Thankful Thursday 12 July 2018

I’m still thankful for the good health news on Monday and while I’m not out of the woods yet with my liver, I am keeping positive. I’ve been in touch with my cousin who is a physician’s assistant and I’ve been open about my anxieties. She has been a pro in relieving them and I am so thankful for her. Words can’t describe how thankful I am.

Tomorrow I am heading to Vans Warped Tour and I can’t bring my DSLR since it’s considered “professional.” I sold my point and shoot camera for Canada, then the other one died last July, and I didn’t really want to use my phone for photos since I wanted to save battery power. Two people really listened and I am overflowing with point and shoot cameras right now. Aunt Kathy lent me one of hers and my co-worker, Kathleen, let me borrow one of hers. Kathleen’s camera is smaller, so I am going to use her camera tomorrow (I think I will bring both as a backup, then my Polaroid… those should all pass security, right) and then I’ll use Aunt Kathy’s on Sunday for Turk’s Head. I am grateful for both of them.

Cecilia, one of my co-workers from my full-time job, invited me to her engagement party in September! I was so surprised and it made me feel verklempt because sometimes I feel like my dietary restrictions are a pain and that they are a buzzkill to others. I guess not since people invite me to do things with them and it touches my heart. I am thankful for the invite and can’t wait to go.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I am excited for you as you prepare for the 2018 Warped Tour rock fest. I hope you take some good pics and bring back some sound clips as well. I can tell you are looking forward to attending that engagement party in September. This being mid July it will be here before you know it. It was so nice of your co-worker to invite you. When you sum it all up, you have many good reasons to be verklempt lately and that makes me verklempt with happiness for you. Maybe you should call it Verklempt Thursday. 🙂

    Enjoy your Friday and your rockin’ weekend, dear friend JM!
