Thankful Thursday 9 June 2022

The second week of Pride! I am grateful that when I called the Sofitel Hotel in Rittenhouse Square today to ask if they have gluten-free options for their drag tea, I was happy when the manager told me they can make gluten-free just for me. There was only one ticket left and he put “gluten-free” on my ticket. So grateful!

This is the tea I am going to. Proceeds benefit the William Way Center and as you dear readers know, they helped me when I was in crisis three years ago. I am grateful for their services and am happy to support them. The tea should be fun. Ms. Sharon is also going to let me borrow a rainbow veil for my hat. Grateful for that too.

I had my blood drawn this morning; dad took me, waited for me, then took me to work. I am grateful that he did that for me. I love my dad.

I’m also thankful for friends and co-workers. What are you grateful for today?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    It’s encouraging to know that forward leaning businesses are accommodating people like you who have special needs. Sofitel Hotel is a class act for agreeing to prepare GF dishes for you. I clicked over to the website and watched the promo video. Looks like a great time watching the drag queen show as you sip tea. Yessum, I remember you discussing the William Way Community Center which offers counseling programs, arts and culture and an extensive archive of LGBTQ documents and artifacts

    Hooray for your dad, who is always there to help you with your transportation needs.

    Happy Thankful Thursday, dear friend JM. I wish you a safe and happy weekend as well!
