Thankful Thursday 29 August 2019

Ah, the last Thursday in August and we are marching towards Autumn, one of my favourite times of year!

I’m still battling my cold – can’t smell or taste anything, but I still have an appetite. I’ve been eating, but mostly tea and soup, plus solids. I can’t wait to get back to normal!

This elderly gentleman I ride the train with asked me how I was this morning. I said I was the same and he gave me a bag of fisherman’s friend lozenges. He said they will cure what ails me and they are strong! They have helped and I’m grateful.

Yesterday was my 13th anniversary at the library and I’m such a lucky person. I won the final summer raffle again. I’m thankful for the people I’ve worked with for the past 13 years.

I heard from Rachel! I can’t make the improv group during the week, but hopefully they have weekend meetups. I’m so glad i heard from her! I also saw Jack on Tuesday and he gave me his number. Can’t wait to see where both acquaintances turn into. I’m grateful for these opportunities!

I am also thankful for my parents, family and friends. What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    It’s no fun to lose your sense of taste and smell. I hope this things runs its course soon so that foodie-you can start enjoying your dining experiences again. it was sweet of the senior citizen on the train to offer you lozenges. I’m glad they helped. I never heard of Fisherman’s Friend Original Extra Strong. I’m tempted to buy a bag even though I don’t have a cold! 🙂

    Happy 13th anniversary working at the library! That’s job longevity. I know from following you that you have great relationships with your co-workers. Congratulations on winning the summer raffle! I’m happy to know you are back in touch with Rachel and Jack. Every contact represents new opportunities.

    I am thankful to be going home tomorrow after spending two weeks away handling family matters. Even so, we are sweating out powerful Hurricane Dorian and uncertain where it is going to strike. At the moment it looks like it will move through Central Florida where I am now. In the past there have been times when we drove hours to a place we thought would be safe from a hurricane only to have the dang storm change its track at the last minute and follow us.

    Feel better and have a happy TT, dear friend JM!
