Thankful Thursday 1/26/2017

Can you believe that the month of January is almost over? This month seemed to fly, but it seems like each year gets faster. I know, I know, I shouldn't wish away the time and I am not! I'm just glad today is Thursday because I have a lot to be thankful for this week.

Last Wednesday I dropped my CD player during the Lyft ride. I didn't realize it until Thursday afternoon while I was at work. I was panicked when I couldn't find it in my desk drawers, even more so when I came home and it wasn't home either. I contacted my boss at the library first, then Lyft. The driver had found the CD player and he would mail it to me. The CD player arrived on Monday with my Young Wicked CD intact. Yesterday I mailed him a thank you card for his kindness.

I also mailed my dentist a Chinese New Year card. My dentist is originally from Guangdong and loves talking about his customs when we go for our appointments. I am thankful for him because he is honest and has helped us monetarily. When I had a filling done in November, he wrote off the 10% I owed (my insurance only pays 90% for those procedures). When Nan was still alive, he also set payment plans for her dental work and lowered the price a little bit for her since she was on a limited income. His practice is run by him, he's the only dentist and I think that is why he is so honest. It's refreshing and I wish more doctors were like him. I sent him a card because I am grateful for him.

I'm also thankful dad gets me iced coffee in the morning for work. Yesterday morning he bought me a blueberry muffin for breakfast.

WOW! Last year my old cell phone died and wouldn't restart at all. I lost everything and was inconsolable for a few days. I did take out the memory card but didn't have an adapter. On Saturday my old SD card broke before seeing Breakwater and had to get a new SD card. I bought an SD adapter. I plugged in the memory card tonight and 116 photos were saved. Brought back some good memories from September and October 2015. :)

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I'm thrilled to learn that you have a number of things for which to be thankful this Thursday. It is rare for a doctor or dentist to give customers a break on their fee. What a wonderful man your dentist is! The Thank You and Chinese New Year cards you filled out to express gratitude are a lovely gesture and you have the most beautiful printing and handwriting I have ever seen. I am happy that you salvaged pictures of some of your adventures in 2015.

    I wish you a happy Thursday, a super Friday and a great weekend, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi, Shady,

      I love my dentist and I will miss him when I finally do move. I hope he enjoys the card. :)

      I hope you had a wonderful Thursday and a great weekend ahead, dear friend!
