Thankful Thursday 5 November 2020

First off, happy birthday to Jamie Madrox of Twiztid! Today The Wraith: Shangri-La turns 18. That was the album that got me into Insane Clown Posse back in 2003. Wraith was my first tattoo, so today is special.

Right now America is at a cross-roads. Please remember, whoever wins, our humanity doesn’t change. How we treat our fellow human beings will never change. Please remember to treat everyone with kindness and empathy. These are the traits that will bring us together and it is up to us. We were chatting about this in the Torah/Bible study yesterday. If you’re faithful: God or Hashem is in control and as long as we have faith in Him, He will lead us forward. That goes to Gods and Goddesses too. I added the kindness and empathy for the more secular people because those traits are important too. I’m grateful for the Torah/Bible study and I’m grateful for the kindness that was displayed yesterday.

The 7th anniversary and the 1st anniversary of tattoo #2 is coming up on Saturday. I’m not getting a tattoo this year, but I am going to get a piercing. I’m going to spend my self-care day at my favourite piercing shop, Infinite. After, I’ll go ice skating since the ice skating rink at City Hall opens tomorrow. It’ll be in the 70s this weekend, but I don’t care. I can’t wait to get my Vitamin Ice in. I’m excited for my piercing and when I go to dinner, I’m going to see if I can find a gluten-free bakery for a small GF cupcake. I’m going to sing Happy Inkday to tattoo #2. I’m grateful for my self care day on 7 November. 7 on 7 November.

Blue Cross RiverRink’s Winterfest is opening on 27 November! Woohoo! It looks like it’ll be a season of Vitamin Ice! I’m grateful and I really can’t wait for winter.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Thanks for reminding me that it’s Thankful Thursday, dear friend. The week has been a blur and I’ve gotten very little sleep watching election coverage almost nonstop. I totally agree with you that the only way forward is for all of us to commit to treat everyone with kindness and empathy.

    I see that your difficult anniversary is still coming up. I know you will handle it elegantly. I am excited that you are going skating. Every year you continue to improve and that enhances your enjoyment of the activity. Plus, you always seem to find beginner skaters to help and befriend. I hope you have a delightful winter and get a big dose of Vitamin Ice. It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since you got tat #2. Choose to focus on that happy anniversary and have a wonderful time at the rink. I wish you a weekend of fun and self care, dear friend JM!
