Thankful Thursday 4 July 2019

Happy Independence Day to my American readers! I turned 30 at 6:23 am and I’m grateful for those who will come later to celebrate my milestone of a birthday.

I’m thankful for Kathleen, Diane, and Linda. Kathleen gave me a thoughtful gift of daily affirmations and a card. Diane left a birthday card in my work mailbox and I was telling her about some of my anxiety about turning 30. Linda was listening. An hour after she left, she came back and I exclaimed, “that was a quick weekend!” She handed me a card and said, “happy birthday! I didn’t know; I hope you enjoy!” I’m verklempt and I’m thankful for each and every one of them. Terry also sent me a birthday card and people from both jobs wished me well.

What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    You aren’t the only one who is verklempt. I’m all verklempt, too, after reading how friends are coming out of the woodwork, surprising you and showering you with kindness in honor of your 30th birthday. I am so glad you have great friends like Kathleen, Diane, Linda and Terry, plus the other caring co-workers at both your places of employment. That pretty red bag with white polka dots is a keeper!

    Your happiness is mine, Jessica Marie. I hope your 30th birthday celebration continues throughout the weekend, propelling you into the future with confidence. Keep in mind that Shady has 40 years on you and I’m still rockin’. You can, too!

    Take care, stay safe, and once again happy birthday to you, dear friend JM!
