Thankful Thursday 6 September 2018

WOW! September already! Hopefully, the temperatures will cool down soon and that the leaves will change colour for autumn…

…With that said, I am thankful for the thunderstorm that is blowing through now because it’ll cool things down. Tomorrow should only be 79. I can’t wait.

I have a lot to be thankful for today. While I was shelving books at the library, Sangeetha saw me and said, “guess who won the final summer raffle!?” I said her daughter’s name and she said, “It was you! You won the final staff raffle for the summer! A gift card to!” She gave me a big hug, then took my photo. It was such a pleasant surprise – my second raffle wins this year. I’m so thankful for the library and that they offer these raffles to our staff. We have them for the public, this year the director decided to do something for us too. Grateful!


I’m also thankful for Kathleen at my full-time job. She is a good ear and shoulder; one of the few people I trust. Although my manager and I have a fiery relationship, I am thankful for her reaching out to the former technical writer today to see if there are still any needs for them. We talked for an hour about my goals and I am grateful she listened.
What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Happy Thankful (and Verklempt) Thursday, dear friend! 🙂

    Funny you should mention the onset of fall and the changing leaves. Today Kathleen Mae Schneider of Lancaster County sent me a picture of a beautiful red leaf. I enjoyed gazing at it because the palm fronds here in Florida don’t change very much with the seasons. 🙂

    You have much for which to be thankful today. How lucky you were to win your second raffle of the year as an employee of the library. Clearly Sangeetha was eager to share the news and see the smile on your face. I hope you find just the right eatery and cuisine to suit your diet on You can also be thankful to have Kathleen as a co-worker friend who is a good listener, a shoulder to lean on and someone you can trust. That’s saying a lot.

    Enjoy your Friday and weekend, dear friend JM!
