Sunday Thanks

I’ve decided I’m going to try to do a post every Sunday and talk about three things I’m thankful for that day. Not all serious or “important” but just little things in my life… right now, that I’m feeling lucky to have. 
So here goes for March 23rd…
1. March Madness- I’ve always enjoyed the tournament but this year I’m in a few different brackets and seeing as I’m literally home all day I’ve been able to watch almost every game. And this specific year, there’s been some fantastic basketball. Tons of buzzer beater endings, a few that have not gone in my favor but in general, really exciting games. When choosing my teams, I like to have a few underdogs go far because if it happens, it’s so much fun. This year, I decided to go with number 10 seed, BYU to go to the Final Four on account of the word “Juggernaut” being used in their CBS team description. Unfortunately for me, that tactic failed in the first round and I’m now left with just a great team name….#JuggernautJessy. Three different leagues. All #JuggernautJessy. All with the exact same bracket. So right now, as you can see below, I’m pulling HARD for Iowa State. Huge Cyclones fan.   
2. Living close to my family – when I was about to graduate from the University of Tampa, I felt very torn about whether or not to stay in Florida. I loved that city and all its gorgeous-weather perks but in the end, I decided to come back to New England because I knew I wanted to be close to my family in order to be here for all the little things in life that I knew I wouldn’t want to miss out on. Never have I been happier or more thankful that I made that decision. I couldn’t have gotten through this past month, and wouldn’t be able to get through this next chapter of my life, without them here by my side. Yesterday that lesson rang true yet again when we were able to have a very special day as a family, all together, to re-celebrate my 25th birthday, St. Patricks Day and celebrate my Dad’s 57th birthday.
3. Bagels and cream cheese- pretty self explanatory but hot damn have I been on a roll with them lately. In my normal life, I typically have yogurt and granola every morning for breakfast but with my appetite out of this world and my body torching calories at a ridiculous rate, I’ve switched over to these savory and absolutely scrumptious morning delights. Asiago anyone? 
What are you thankful for on this first Sunday in Spring? I hope it’s something fabulous!

  1. Great idea. 🙂 I’m thankful for guacamole, that my parents are back safely from their trip, and that my husband and kids are more patient with me than I deserve. (That wasn’t in any particular order, by the way.)
    Looking forward to reading more!

  2. Jessy,
    What can I say… totally amaze me more and more each day young lady:-) I know I have said this to your Mom and Dad, you have an amazing gift-your voice on paper. I know how hard you are working to get to the finish line of this marathon race you are running. You WILL MAKE IT, and during this run your thoughts are reminding EVERYONE how precious and beautiful life is, and we all need to “cherish” each day as a gift. These words are going to comfort someone you don’t know Jessy….
    Here is my wish for you
    “Comfort on difficult days, Smiles when sadness intrudes, Rainbows to follow the clouds, Laughter to kiss your lips, Hugs when the spirits sag, Sunsets to warm your heart, Friendships to brighten your day, Beauty for your eyes to see, Faith so you can believe, Confidence for when you doubt, Patience to accept the truth, Courage to know yourself, and Love to Complete your life” Anonymous.
    Even though you have all of these, just wanted to share one of my favorite quotes.
    Thinking of you and was so good seeing you…..XOXO Connie, Mark (Holly and Allie)

  3. First off, I am thankful that you are following me at Triggershorse, which led me back to your delightful blog! As a committed Pollyanna myself, I love your positive outlook. I’m going to enjoy following you! – Fawn

  4. Dear Jessie, You are truly an amazing young lady in your spirit and ability to express yourself. Number one thing I am thankful for like you is my family. Where would we all be without them when times are tough? It seems like everyday we hear news that makes us realize people are hurting and dealing with major battles in their lives, how trivial my day to day events are. I hope you are able to look outside and see the beautiful blue cloudless sky today and be thankful your not outside in the cold wind. Love to you, Bernie Dann
