Happy and Grateful – Day 7

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!

This was not one of my better days.  I have waited to post this almost two days late now because I was trying to find the good in the day I felt so down.  A dear friend of mine is hurting and it always throws me off when there is nothing I can do to help those I love.

If I had to find a small happiness it was for my sports team.  I don’t really follow pro sports except when it is World Series (I was so happy for the Cubs!) or the Super Bowl.  But I grew up in a small college town where my Dad went to college and although I never took a class there I do have a little home team pride.  Tonight they won their first conference game.  It was pretty close most of the game so it was a good game to watch, not a walk away win.  So my happiness came when they won.  I am grateful to have grown up in a town with a team to root for even if I was never part of that school.  Go team, go!
