Thankful Friday 29 May 2020

I feel so verklempt right now. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was able to participate in the improv Zoom on Monday and I only have a pair of really old iPhone headphones and a non working mic. We tried improv via chat, but it was hard and I left early. It was a bummer for all of us. Rachel sent me an e-mail on Tuesday expressing that she was sorry that Monday didn’t quite work out.

Tonight we ordered dinner and when dad collected the food from the front porch, he saw an Amazon box for me. He said, “this is for you.” I was confused because I didn’t order anything. I opened the box and it was a headset! Attached was a note from Rachel, “Since you didn’t have a good set of headphones with a decent speaker, here’s a headset for you! Look forward to seeing you on Monday evenings and future improv meetups.”

I feel so touched right now that I could cry. I sent her a thank you. I’m beyond grateful. Today is also Shavuot, so a beautiful Shavuot gift.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Now you have me all verklempt, too, dear friend! It was such a kind and thoughtful gesture for Rachel to send you a set of headphones so that you can better participate in Zooms. That’s true blue friendship in action.

    I am also verklempt tonight because I just got word a few hours ago that a good friend’s mother died today.

    I’m glad your spirits remain high as you head into the weekend. I wish you a happy Shavuot and a safe and happy weekend, dear friend JM!
