Thankful day 19

Monday, November 19, 2012

Today, I am grateful for my job, particularly my boss.

I was not wanting to work this morning. I am tired from the trip and want some down time. But I had to go in, and of course got caught up in a million things. But in the middle of that I had a few people come by to talk to me, and they were so happy to have someone listen to them- and to walk out with some hope that things could change. What a blessing my job is- really just helping people hook up with the help they might need.

My boss stopped by and he approved me going to another conference in the spring- in New Orleans. Having just visited there- I am happy and thankful for the chance to go back. And of course to see JoAnn again!

Doing the thankful blogs- has changed my attitude a lot. I really have a new appreciation for my life, my family, my friends. I'm thinking maybe I need to keep doing this- even if not every day.

    I am glad that you are anticipating returning to a place that you enjoyed.

    I agree that it does help our attitude to think about what we are thankful for. I can tell a big difference in my outlook just in the past few days. I had to start with little things - like my wool socks - but it did get better...

    I fully believe that developing an attitude of gratitude WILL totally change your life. Glad that you have another opportunity in the future to revisit The Big Easy. I'm pea green with envy!
