Thankful Thursday 4 October 2018

It’s Thursday, again!? And it’s the beginning of October?! Where did this year go? That’s okay, autumn is one of my favourite times of the year.

I am thankful for co-workers at both jobs – when I returned to the library this week, all of my co-workers asked me how I was feeling post-procedure. I told them I was feeling great. Co-workers at my full-time job also followed up; I am thankful I work with kind people. Tomorrow the full-time job is having a picnic and while I’ll be bringing my own lunch, I made a gluten-free applesauce cake. It’s currently baking.


I’m also thankful for my friends, both local and internationally. One of my British friends sent me a gift from the UK and Rome. I can’t wait to read the letter later and I can’t wait to take a picture and add it to my Happiness Box. 🙂 I love my friends and family.


What are you thankful for today?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    You hit the jackpot again this week. dear friend, identifying quite a few things for which to be thankful (and a little verklempt). It’s wonderful to know that you have thoughtful, caring and considerate co-workers at both jobs and that they inquired about your post-procedure condition. I hope you enjoy the picnic today. Are you taking the gluten-free applesauce cake along to share with co-workers? I’m sure they’d enjoy sampling something that is gluten-free. How nice of your Brit friend to surprise you with a gift pack and letter… just because. Gifts given for no particular reason, only for the sake of showing love and friendship, are the best gifts of all.

    I wish you a happy Friday and a safe and happy weekend, dear friend JM!
