Thankful Thursday 29 November 2018

I can’t believe tomorrow is the end of the month! We only have one more month of 2018 and one more month until I can open Happiness Box 2018!

Last Friday when I went skating, I forgot my ice skates at Panera in Philadelphia. I realized it when I was on the bus, I called Panera and the manager found the skates. He is holding them and tomorrow I am picking them up. I am grateful they were found and that the manager agreed to hold them for me for a week. I kvetch about Philadelphia and while I do want to move out, I am grateful for the kind people. Kind people live everywhere.

I’m also thankful for Terry. She brought me back a small gift from Florida, thanking me for watching the kitties. I know one is chocolate, but the other I’ll open when I open my Happiness Box. I keep some small trinkets/gifts to the side that I can open after I open the main portion of my Happiness Box.

I just accidentally deleted this post and I am grateful that WordPress has an undo button! My post wasn’t lost!

What are you thankful for today?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    You mentioned three things for which you are thankful this week. Two of the three are problems that were easily solved. It was nice of the manager at Panera to hold your skates for you. You’re right, dear friend. Kind people live everywhere. Seek them out. Get to know them. Be good to them. Lend your support. Together, united, good people can defeat evil ones. It was sweet of Terry to bring you a gift from Florida. I hope it isn’t a live alligator. My parents actually mail ordered a baby alligator from Florida when I was very young. I saw the offer in a comic book ad. The poor little gator died within a couple of days. We also had our parrot mailed to us from South America in a small dark box with air holes. I hope such inhumane practices have been outlawed. I share your excitement as the end of the year nears and you prepare to review the highlights of 2018 when you open your Happiness Box.

    Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend JM!
