Thankful Thursday 24 February 2022

I’m really grateful for Tommy today. He has been nothing but patient with me and I love him dearly. We love each other dearly and we accept one another for who we are.

With that said, I’m going to let go of anxiety and worry. I’m going to keep present and just let life flow naturally. I found this reading today and I agree with it:

This makes sense. Just let it be and what will unfold will unfold. There’s nothing wrong with me. I’m great the way I am.

Today is my 16th anniversary on I’ve been there for half my life and it’s hard to believe that I joined when I was 16 years old and in 10th grade. I am thankful for the community and the friends I’ve made over the years. This site not only helped me grow into a better writer and creator, they also helped me grow into the young woman I am now.

I am grateful for everyone who sent me a Cnote and merit badge. Thank you for all the well-wishes and I look forward to many more years on

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

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Congratulations on sticking with for 16 years, half your life, dear friend! That’s impressive. I totally agree with learning how to be patient and allowing the answers to come to you. For decades, ever since the dawn of the MTV era I would say, we have been a people obsessed with instant gratification. We use it as a measure of success. Why be in a hurry to eat dessert first when there are so many facets of the meal to savor before you get to it? Apply these principles to your relationship with Tommy and you will both benefit from it.

    Please join me tomorrow morning or in the days ahead as I remember the First Lady of the Shady, Helen Ettline, on the anniversary of her death. Thank you, dear friend JM!
