I have undertaken a challenge this year. I am trying to find the good in every day by writing about happiness and gratitude that I feel. No matter how small there is always something to bring a smile or make you grateful, if just for a moment. Follow along with me as I dig deep as necessary and find the peace of the day. Join in if you are feeling happy and grateful too – in the comments or on your own blog. Let’s find some fun!
I must apologize for taking almost a full day to write this.. I knew what I was going to write half-way through the day, but laundry, pain and fatigue kept me from writing much. But I am here now and yesterday was a wonderful day… at least a couple of hours of it was. I met two wonderful women I worked with for lunch and we sat and talked for about 2 1/2 hours. It is always good to see them. One of them is nearing the stage in her life she may have to move a couple of hours away to take care of her ailing mother. Right now her brothers are helping out some but eventually she will need more around the clock care. It will be hard to see her move but at least she will be a days drive away to still visit when able.
I am grateful I still have friends from work I can communicate with and still have a small bit of a “social life” to enjoy. It was a very happy few hours of talk and laughter. I need more days like that. Unfortunately I can’t afford them very often and they both still work so coordinating schedules is sometimes a challenge. But it made this Friday a good day!
