Thankful Thursday 19 January 2023

I’m beyond grateful for David and his friends. After work, David picked me up to do some errands, then I went back to his house. I’m grateful his friends welcome me and they want to go to the Lunar New Year parade on Sunday. His friends aren’t normally morning people, but they will be setting their alarms and practicing. They want to experience a Lunar New Year parade and they’re willing to get up early. I’m not verklempt, you are.

David’s mom’s cat also warmed up to me. She is normally skittish and hasn’t warmed up to many people since his mom died. David said I’m a lot like his mom and I guess Lucy sensed it too. I let her smell me for a bit, then once she slinked over to me, I offered Lucy a toy. Lucy saw that as a friendly gesture and let me pet her. I was able to pet her for a good 5 minutes. David was a little teary eyed. I was too. Today is also our 3 months.

What are you thankful for?

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Your TT post hasn’t yet appeared in my sidebar blog list, so I needed to come searching for it. David is the real deal, and apparently so are his friends. They are willing to push themselves outside the comfort zone so that they can experience something entirely different with you and David. That says a lot about their character. I’m very happy to know that David’s mom’s kitty has taken a liking to you. Sometimes It takes a while to gain an animal’s trust, but once you do, you have a friend for life. Mrs. Shady’s sister had a dog that for years shied away from me and barked at me suspiciously. It was a problem I never encountered with a dog before. I kept working to gain the dog’s trust and eventually he came to me and allowed me to pet and scratch. After that, he was my best buddy and couldn’t get enough of the attention and affection I offered.

    Happy 3 months to you and David! I have a new post starting first thing tomorrow morning for a five-day run. I hope you can swing by. Happy TT and enjoy your Friday and weekend, dear fried JM!
