Thankful Thursday: Celebrating Mrs. Collier

Tomorrow Mrs. Collier officially retires from the library. Since the library is my part-time job, I do not work Fridays since I work my full-time job during the day (the library is only opened from 9-5 on Fridays), tonight was my last night seeing her before she retires.

She let me take a picture with her, which I am grateful for. I am thankful that I had her as one of my managers for the past 11 years. I'm thankful for my other manager as well. I'm thankful for her lessons and how she acts as a mother for the other pages. I am thankful that the library feels like a family. I will miss her vibrant personality and jokes, but I will miss seeing her at work.

I feel thankful for everything that the library has taught me over the years and the people I have worked with.


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    What a great photo op - posing with your friend and inspiration, library manager Mrs. Collier, on the last day the two of you worked together. Based on the details you provided, Mrs. Collier is a wonderful person and part of the solution. I know you will miss her, but I am sure you will find a way to stay in touch with her in the future. Genuine friends are worth keeping.

    Thank you, dear friend JM, for introducing your wonderful co-worker Mrs. Collier. You can truly be thankful for the time you spent working with her and all you learned from her!

    1. Hi Shady,

      I started writing my autobiography and I want to include all of these aspects. I'm just glad my co-workers from both jobs don't mind the pictures.

      I printed out this picture for my happiness box.

  2. Mrs. Collier is lovely. I'm glad she touched your life in a good way.


    1. I love the women I work with at the library. They all feel like mothers and grandmothers to me. I can confide in them and I like that.

      I'm going to miss Mrs. Collier, though.
