I can’t believe we’re in September already! I can’t believe that in 4 months I will be opening Happiness Box 2021! While it’s not as filled as 2017-2019, it’s a bit more fuller than 2020’s. I didn’t get to the level my Happiness Box is now until November 2020. While we are not out of the woods yet, I’ve been able to do some things I couldn’t do last year.
I’m waiting on my NYC photos to arrive. Once they do, I’ll add the envelope to the Box with a note of the contents. I don’t feel like taking those paper bags (the leopard print one, and two brown bags) out. I bought some postcards in Manhattan, Coney Island, and Brooklyn, so I put a note in each bag with the postcard.
I have a lot to be grateful for this week. I love my new job and the people I work with. I feel very lucky and it’s a great feeling. It’s nice to have a job one loves.
New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania were walloped by Ida. New Jersey and New York declared states of emergency; parts of Montgomery County, PA were going to and I imagine Philadelphia will be as well. I’m thankful that where I live wasn’t touched by tornadoes and we had minimal flooding.
Since we were unscathed, I will be donating goods to local charities, to help those who lost everything in the storm. I am grateful that we were spared and I want to share my bounty with those who aren’t as fortunate.
I’m also grateful for friends and family. What are you grateful for this week?
