Happy Thorsday, little friday, Thankful Thursday, JLC March GMM Day, Maundy Thursday… that’s more than enough, isn’t it?
My post over on the girls’ blog is rather ranty and serious, so here I want to focus on the thankfuls, because we do have so much to celebrate. Firstly, today’s a pivotal day in the history of the Junior League of Charlottesville, and I’m excited! (I’m also really proud of our new website. It’s a work in progress, but if you’ve clicked over before, let me know what you think now… not that I did anything other than sign the contract and listen in on the conference calls.)
I just deleted two long paragraphs about why this is a big, hairy meeting, but if you’re not in the JLC, you probably don’t care. Heck, I’m not sure all of our members care… but I do, and so do many of our leaders. We’ll select a new focus area tonight, along with all of the other necessary votes to approve the leadership, budget and bylaws changes for the upcoming year.
I’m thankful for the honor of being president of the JLC right now. I’m surrounded by so many talented, dynamic women, and that makes it mostly a joy to lead through this change. I’m thankful for the Knight’s support, for the support of my inlaws and Uncle (inlaw), and especially for my non-League friends who listen and care, just because it’s something I’m so passionate about.
It is Thorsday, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that I’m thankful my girls are safe and healthy. If you don’t follow their blog, you might not know Sis had two lumps aspirated and checked on Tuesday, and they’re just sebaceous cysts. We also survived yet another encounter with loose dogs yesterday, but you can read about that if you click on the link at the start of this post.
What are you thankful for or celebrating today?
