Happy October! First Thankful Thursday in October; and 24 more days until Halloween. I can’t wait! Halloween brings joy before the really difficult anniversary.
Yesterday was dad’s birthday and they left for the Poconos until Saturday evening. Dad took me to work, so I was able to give him his birthday card. I also sent him a birthday comic; both the card and comic were by Mark Parisi.
I’m so grateful dad loved both of these birthday greetings. He especially loved the Blob. The Blob is one of his favourite movies. I’m also grateful that dad took me to work.
Today as I was waiting for Lyft after work, I ran into the DA. He knows who I am and he asked me how everything is going. I told him I love my job, I love the people I work with, and it’s really up my alley. He smiled and said, “I’m so glad to hear!”
I added, “I’m also thinking about eventually getting a paralegal certificate. I graduated with an English degree with a concentration in writing and it would be a great pairing.”
He gave me a big smile, nodded his head in agreement, and added, “you work with a bunch of great writers.” We parted ways, but I am so grateful that my boss is nice, and I work with a bunch of nice people. I truly love my full-time job and I’m grateful and blessed that I was paired with this.
I’m also thankful for friends, family, and my library co-workers. What are you grateful for today?
