Thankful Thursday 4 August 2022

Thursday again! First Thursday in August and it’s a hot one in Pennsylvania! It was 96 with a real feel of 105. So thankful that I was indoors today.

Tomorrow is the intern’s last day at the full-time job and on Wednesday I coordinated and planned a pizza party. We had it today. I’m happy to report that the pizza party for the legal interns was a roaring success. I changed the time to 1pm without an issue. The gluten free and regular pizzas were a hit. Party lasted for two hours and we will shared some laughs. Everything thanked me for planning and coordinating; I told them, “I love doing stuff like this. Anytime!”

The two interns, Zeke and Matt, agreed to photos. What a great time! I gave them all thank you cards, which gave them a sense of gratitude. They thanked me and they thanked us for our kindness.

There was a happy hour earlier for all of the interns. I went for an hour and the other interns I met throughout the summer were happy to get a group photo with me. Awww! So grateful they agreed.

On Tuesday when I started my evening shift at the library, Terry mentioned that one of the new clerks loved my Happiness Box Project scrapbooks that I had on display in June.

Last night when I started my shift, the new clerk was working. I asked her if she enquired about the Happiness Box Project scrapbooks and she smiled, she did. She asked me how I decided what to put in. I explained that this was a non-traditional scrapbook and I put everything I collect throughout the year into it.

I continued, “for more traditional scrapbooks, I go by a theme and I choose the best photos, especially ones that have a story and I can journal.” I had the snap album I was working on and continued, “lately I’ve been working on snap albums, which are a combination of photo album and scrapbooking. It’s still time consuming!” I let her look through my snap album and she was impressed. She definitely wants to learn more. I feel grateful about this all.

I’m also thankful for Tommy, my parents, my friends, family, and co-workers. What are you grateful for today?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Happy TT to you, dear friend! It was hotter than 96 degrees when Mrs. Shady and I visited Philly and Delaware two weeks ago. Enjoy your cool snap! 🙂

    I’m thrilled that your pizza party for interns was a roaring success and that you took the new clerk under your wing and explained your Happiness Box Project scrapbooks and the various types of scrapbooking to her. Clearly she is interested and wants to do what you are doing.

    Please check my response to your comment on my blog for my input on the status of your relationship with Tommy. I said it all there. Keep your spirits high and keep biting into life. It’s all any of us can do.

    Enjoy the rest of your week and weekend, dear friend JM!
