Thankful Thursday 28 February 2019

Wow! I can’t believe tomorrow c’est premier Marz, or the First of March, and it’ll be two years since I was invited for permanent residency in Canada (to be turned down seven months later, but still working towards it) and I was attempting to learn some French. Anyway, the week flew by since I was busy working on my display project for the library.

I am thankful for the library giving me permission to use their resources – they did say since I am an employee, I can help myself to whatever I need for the display and I can put the display up during my shift on Saturday. This helps me out a lot and I am thankful. Here is another little teaser for my display:

Mom has been travelling for business this week and I’m thankful for the evenings bonding with dad. Before he went to bed and before I worked on my display project, we would eat dinner and watch TV together. It was peaceful and I’m grateful.

This morning, someone I work with at my full-time job gave me some of her smoothie. The Simply Lemonade brand now has a “Simply Smoothie,” and she couldn’t get over how good it was. She asked if I would like to try some and she gave me half of the bottle. It was delicious and I’m very grateful.

What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I’m happy to read your Thankful Thursday report, dear friend. Notice how 2019 is whizzing by even faster than 2018, and 2018 went faster than 2017, etc.?

    I’m happy to learn that you were able to work on your library display project during your shift. It must be very rewarding to arrange the elements knowing they will be viewed and appreciated by many visitors. That’s a great quote: “Live life as if everything is rigged in your favour.” In the motivational seminars we had a similar saying, “What if you knew you cannot fail? How then would you feel, look, stand, walk and talk?”

    I am always curious to try new taste sensations and “Simply Smoothie” seems like something I’d enjoy as long as I could convince myself it is also healthful.

    Have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend, dear friend JM!
