I’m a big fan of grateful.
In the past, I haven’t really jumped onboard the “posting days of the week” train (Throwback Thursday, Selfie Sunday, Felony Friday, etc.). But I thought of a new one (to my knowledge) yesterday that resonated with me, so today I give you Thank You Thursday. #tyt will be a short post of appreciation for a person, a thing, a memory, an opportunity…anything at all that you’re grateful for in the moment.
My first Thank You Thursday goes out to a lady named Jude Bumby.
I met Jude across the pond late last year during the UK2K14 Tour. She came out with friends to a couple shows I played with Guy Jones and Cherry Suede, and after digging what she heard, she hyped me and my album to the whole room, if not the whole country. She was active on Facebook & Twitter to get people out to shows, she included my song Cigarette on a compilation album for radio promotion, and most recently, she connected me with a festival promoter in the US with whom I’ve already booked 2 dates. Since I’ve met her, she’s gone out of her way to help me and asked for nothing in return.
I’m grateful. Thank you, Jude. You’re a rockstar.
Feel free to jump on the #tyt train as you like. I’d love to read why you’re grateful.
