Thankful Thursday 24 January 2019

I want to thank everyone who sent their condolences and reached out to me about Mimi. While I still miss her, I’m feeling better. Mimi didn’t suffer, she went peacefully, and I’m thankful for that. I’m thankful for the love she gave me and the love I gave her. She gave us all love and we gave it back to her.

The boy, the stray my parents had fixed last year, has been settling in. He is staying near my parents and my mom is trying to socialize him a bit more since the vet is coming in the spring to give him vaccinations. He’s a good cat and I’m thankful for that.

I’m thankful for the peace and quiet this week. I started my Happiness Box 2018 scrapbook and I’m thankful for creativity.

It’s not a typical scrapbook, but it houses my moments from 2018 and everything I use for design is designed for joy.

What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Time marches on, and it has a way of mending a broken heart. You honor the memory of Mimi by living every day to the fullest and opening your heart to another innocent animal that needs your help, the stray cat you call “the boy.” I know you will experience joy and satisfaction assembling your 2018 Happiness Box scrapbook. It will also give you the chance to reflect on the year and gain insights that will help you navigate 2019.

    Happy Friday, dear friend JM, and have a wonderful weekend!
