This is February and I am well on my way to attaining a goal I set for myself. I am trying to post every day with happiness and gratitude that I have encountered that day. There is always something no matter how small it may seem that we can be grateful for and even just a shared smile can make you happy if only for a moment. Please try to find those moments for yourself too… if you’re up to it I would love if you would share them too in the comments or your own blog. Being aware can really turn a day around!
Today was a pretty constant on the go day. My daughter called with a last-minute request to go out for lunch together so I threw myself together and picked her up at her apartment so we could head to Perkins. It is always such a joy for me to see her, and an unexpected chance to visit is always nice. But we could not relax too long as I had to take my Dad to an appointment. Then off to the pharmacy to pick up some meds. Home for about an hour and a half. Back to my Dad’s to fix him dinner. Back to the store for cold medicine as my boyfriend came home not feeling well. And finally home for the night. Phew!
I am hoping all that running will help me sleep good tonight. But right now I am still kind of wired from the on the go day. But I am happy I was able to squeeze in time with my daughter. And once again I find myself grateful to be able to help my Dad out after all he has done for me growing up. I feel pretty lucky to have him as a Dad and feel no shame in saying I love him every day. He may be my hero but he is not immortal and I treasure every day I can have with him still.
