She’s quiet, doesn’t talk back and never throws tantrums.
She’ll never succumb to the terrible twos; I can guarantee the worst she’ll give me is some difficulty when it comes to gathering my thoughts and focusing.
She’s a joy to come home to, and I’d swear she appreciates our nightly routine as much as I do. Interestingly, she can be a morning person when I can’t, up and ready to go at a moment’s notice — not that I frequently wake her before noon.
My little Thanky is two years old, y’all.
She’s a she due to her being an extension of me. Daily gratitude wasn’t what I set out to pen, and it might’ve come as a surprise to those of you who know of my unfortunate weakness for cursing like a sailor at times. But it’s ended up being my own personal happiness project — without even being aware at the time that the book existed. She’s made me a better person.
Fascinating side note: The Happiness Project was published on my birthday in 2009. That seems to be reason enough for a purchase to occur, no? Thanky could have a sibling of sorts, or maybe it would be a cousin.
So, anyway, a very happy birthday to Thanky. Thank you all for reading, for your “likes” and kind comments, emails, messages and personal stories of how some posts have touched you, inspired you to see things in a different light or just made you laugh.
For you — my readers, subscribers and supporters — I am thankful.
So very thankful.
