Thankful Thursday 8 July 2021

As the birthday ride comes to an end, I am feeling blessed. I may not be monetarily wealthy, but the love from family and friends makes me feel rich. I’m wealthy in other, more important ways.

Here are the lovely cards I received in the last few days, mixed with the cards my parents, my lovely neighbour, and my aunts gave me on my birthday. Such an outpouring of love that I placed right into the Happiness Box. Of course, I printed out Crush’s birthday wishes, so they are right there with the cards.

Sarah and Bernadine are my UK friends and their card made me verklempt.

On Tuesday I put up my display at the library and last night I took a photo. Sangeetha had me make a new sign and she did take a photo of it today, but I’ll take a photo of the new sign next week. Here are the photos from last night, with the old sign. I’m really grateful for this opportunity.

I’m also thankful for friends and family. What are you grateful for today?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    That’s the healthy, mature way to look at it, dear friend! You are indeed wealthy in ways that matter more than $$$. You have an open, curious mind that soaks up knowledge like a sponge, and a network of caring friends and family members to love and guide you. That’s an impressive stack of birthday cards! I too am verklempt by the outpouring. Your library display looks like the best one ever. I am sure you will receive many compliments on it.

    Here in West Central Florida we are thankful that hurricane Elsa passed by without doing much damage. On the local news there were reports of uprooted trees and power outages west of us along the coast, but our vicinity was spared the brunt. We did get heavy torrential rain and there are deep puddles all across our lawn, but it could have been a lot worse.

    Happy TT to you, dear friend JM!
