NaNoPoblano – Day 1 (November 1)

Here is my first NaNoPloblano post (go Team Cheerpeppers!) for National Blog Posting Month (   And, incidentally, it is also my first post for 30 Days of Thankfulness (

There are days I wonder how one can continue to have faith in human beings.  And then this happens:

Seriously.  I was off work yesterday (since it was my birthday, and Hallowe’en SHOULD be a stat holiday as everyone knows, but that’s a subject for a separate post!) and my work colleagues did this for me.


Understand that there has been some pretty unbelievable stress at work lately, but still my colleagues did this for me.


Today could have been a much bigger challenge for me due to an incident which sent me back into a very sad place of feeling like you just should never let yourself trust some people, but for my colleagues.  They are, without a doubt, the best – they restore my faith in humanity.  Even when the velociraptor-free workplace counter has been reset to zero!


So, what am I grateful for today?  That’s an easy one.  4 people who have my back and have become my dear friends.

  1. Aww, what great co-workers!

  2. That is great! I love the dinosaurs and that they made a happy spot in the day for you. 🙂

    I am also sorry for the sad place. Hopefully, those moments will be fewer and fewer as time goes one.

    Thanks for joining in with 30 Days of Thankfulness. 🙂 Have a blessed day!

    • The dinos are fun – and portable, so I can carry one (or more) with me wherever I go! As for the sad place, I know there is a better place out there, it’s just trying to find the way there through all the roadblocks that seem to keep appearing…Some day…

      • Dinos are fun, for sure. 🙂

        I know what you mean about the roadblocks. That seems to be all there is in our lives these days. Here’s to something coming along to do some major block-busting for your life and ours!

  3. Awww this is awesome! Blessings, Emily – to you and your coworkers (and the little dinosaur things)
