Thankful Thursday 18 October 2018

Tonight when I arrived home from the library, I had a lovely Halloween card waiting from one of my pen-pals. It was a cute little Halloween card! I am grateful for her friendship. The Halloween card put me in a good mood. πŸ™‚

I’m also thankful for my co-workers from both jobs. Terry is lending me her cupcake tins and decorating pipes so I can make GF cupcakes for my full-time job’s Halloween party next Friday. Our theme is unicorns, I have to make unicorn cupcakes. My co-worker also bought me a unicorn shirt for this contest. I’m grateful.

The weather has also finally cooled down! The days have been sunny and the evenings have been crystal clear. For the past few mornings, I’ve stood outside and looked up at the stars before going to work. Last night I stood outside, watched the stars and moon. I’m thankful for nature’s beauty.


What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I love to stand outdoors when the air is cold and fresh and take deep breaths. It will be a long time before I have the opportunity to do that here in Florida, and I just read that the coming winter might be milder than normal.

    That is a lovely Halloween card sent by your pen pal. The colors are rich, the artwork ideal for a cat lover like you and the message uplifting. I would love to taste gluten free unicorn cupcakes. It was nice of your co-worker to surprise you with a unicorn shirt.

    What am I thankful for? At a time like this, when there’s a lot going wrong and I can’t think of anything in particular for which to be thankful, I remember the words of the song by the Motown white soul band Rare Earth– “I Just Want To Celebrate.”

    I just want to celebrate another day of livin’
    I just want to celebrate another day of life
    I put my faith in the people
    But the people let me down
    So I turned the other way
    And I carry on, anyhow

    Had my hand on a dollar bill
    And the dollar bill flew away
    But the sun is shining down on me
    And it’s here to stay

    Don’t let it all get you down, no, no
    Don’t let it turn you around and around and around, no

    Well, I can’t be bothered with sorrow
    And I can’t be bothered with hate, no, no
    I’m using up the time but feeling fine, every day
    That’s why I’m telling you I just want to celebrate
    Oh, yeah
    I just want to celebrate another day
    Oh, I just want to celebrate another day of livin’
    I just want to celebrate another day of life

    Happy Friday, dear friend JM!


    1. Hi dear friend,

      What a beautiful song! After a difficult night last night, I needed to read the lyrics. πŸ™‚

      I hope at some point you will be able to enjoy the stars and moon; that it’ll get temperate enough to do so.

      Have a great Friday, dear friend!
