Slammed my finger in a door, cat litter was delivered damaged (you know what damaged cat litter is? A box of sand…) It was about a million degrees outside and a little chilly inside…but let’s think about the good…

  1. About 25 years ago I was walking down Fifth Avenue with my skirt tucked into my pantyhose.ย  I am eternally grateful to the woman who pointed it out
  2. I saw a girl with a little terrier in her bike basket.ย  Though the wicked witch theme immediately entered my head, I did not say “and your little dog too”
  3. I didn’t brake my finger when I slammed it in the door
  4. Amazon sent me a replacement container of litter
  5. Air conditioning did not give out
  6. My deodorant kept its promise
  7. ย All the amazing, thoughtful and honest comments that I received this week
  8. refrigerated beverages
  9. my friends who have my back
  10. friends that just call you up specifically so you can whine and they don’t care
  11. My daughter got her schedule and she got all the classes she wanted, and one of her closest friends shares a schedule with her

  1. Never heard of the litter thing, that’s…weird. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

    I got woken by a wet dog nose of the Airedale we’re sitting, still deciding if I’m thankful for that. ๐Ÿ™„. But I have โ˜• so I am thankful for one thing so far. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Happy weekend!

    1. I order the litter from amazon. 20 pound container…apparently they kind of tossed it, because container was cracked, and actually leaked outside and inside my building

    1. Space is at a premium in manhattan. Most grocery stores do not sell litter, and if they do itโ€™s small containers and grossly overpriced. I need to go to a pet store and the closest pet store is a 15 minute walk. While Iโ€™ve carried 20pound container home, itโ€™s much easier (and cheaper ) to buy it on amazon and have it delivered


  2. I love your gratitude post and there is no time limit on expressing gratitude – 25 years ago and still grateful! I had a similar experience at school dismissal time a few years back. Thankfully someone told me right away.

      1. Many years ago, I read something that still sticks with me now regarding what is helpful and what isnโ€™t helpful.
        If the person has a flaw that can be fixed: such as something in their teeth, their skirt bunched up or tucked in, a button undone, or toilet paper on their shoe, you should tell them.
        If someone has something that cannot be fixed: such as a stain on their shirt, a wet stain under their arms, or a run in their nylons, donโ€™t say anything. It will only make them feel bad about something they canโ€™t change.

  3. ๐Ÿ˜” In all my years I have never seen a lady with her skirt hem caught inside her knickers, AND I’ve always wondered how I’d react? BUT ๐Ÿ˜Š don’t panic I’m sure I’d tell her……… wow you’ve remembered this 25years to the week!!!

  4. LA,
    There is always something to be thankful for, even when it doesn’t come to us inside the heat of the moment.
    Wonderful reflections on the week that was.

    Peace and friends who have your back
