Happy dia de los Muertos, All Saint’s Day, and the First of November! I can’t believe it’s already November, although it feels like 1 September in Pennsylvania since it was 72 degrees today. Cool weather will be here again soon enough…
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! Co-workers from both jobs loved their treat bags and felt grateful for them. We also had a few trick-or-treaters last night and a group of teenaged girls stopped by. They were dressed as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They loved the emoji pumpkins I created and asked me if I was the one who created to Trumpkin last year. I said, “I did, two years ago!” (I was in Baltimore for the day and my parents arrived home from their cruise on Halloween last year and we didn’t open the door.) They replied, “we come here every year and love the pumpkins you come up with. We loved the Trumpkin and we love the decorations.” They let me take a photo and they agreed to a selfie! I’m thankful for their kindness.
I’m thankful for my friends, my family, and that I have a roof over my head. I am also thankful that I have food in my stomach and while money can be a struggle at times (especially lately), I’m especially thankful for the roof over my head and a loving home. I’m thankful for what my parents do for me.
I’m thankful for my job, especially the library job. The children’s department set up a “Month of Thankfulness” table and for November, I am going to try to post daily for “Thankful November.” I know I did that for the past few years on my former blog, I’m going to do it this year too! It is Thankful November!
What are you thankful for today?
