It’s Thursday again AND it’s halfway through the month?! April, please slow down. 2019, please slow down a little. Anyway, I have a lot to be thankful for this week.
Last Friday I went ice skating in Oaks and Miranda skated up to me and gave me a big hug. She said I’m really improving and we chatted for a bit. I’m thankful for her kindness and I am thankful that she gave me a big hug, plus agreed to a selfie.
I also taught a young boy how to skate. His skates weren’t tied correctly and I offered to help him. He agreed, I tied the skates and then he asked me to show him how to skate. I showed him what I learned in NYC. And guess what?! An hour into ice skating, he was moving and grooving! He thanked me and honestly, it made me verklempt. Miranda aso made me feel verklempt.
Last Saturday, Aunt Peg and I went to the Orchestra. She treated me to dinner at Le Pain Quotitiant and I treated to the Orchestra. We had a great evening; she was grateful for the ticket (and lovely seat) to the Orchestra; I was thankful for a nice dinner out. I am eternally grateful about spending time with family and making memories.
Before I met up with Aunt Peg, I met John on the Norristown High Speed Line. I had the pleasure of chatting with this young man for 15 minutes and getting to know him. An aspiring carpenter and graphic artist, we exchanged Instagrams. He also agreed to a selfie, and I have to send it to him. Thanks, John, for being a kind sport.
On Monday, Kathleen brought me a gift from her friend. She has cancer and I try to make her cheerful things when Kathleen visits. She has always been appreciative, even though I have never met her face to face, and she sent Kathleen back with a mouse or bunny for me to choose. I chose the mouse and with the help of Marsha, I named her Hope. I am grateful for Kathleen and Brenda and Marsha!
Today, I had lunch with James. This year will mark 12 years since we have become friends. He now works at my full-time job and it’s always nice to catch up over lunch. We walked the trail today, as it was a beautiful day. I am thankful for his friendship too, and the time he takes out of his day to spend with me.
I’m also thankful for mom, dad, and Christina. What are you thankful for?
