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!
The weather today was still Spring like, only a rainy Spring day. That is ok though, it has been a pretty dry winter around here so we will take it. And I would much rather have a little rain than a lot of snow.
We had indoor plans for the day anyway. My car was once again making a loud ticking noise and we had an appointment at the auto garage to have it fixed. It was like the same sound it had made in the fall when I took it in and it was a part that they had to remove part of the dash to get to … nearly a $400 bill but covered under the extended warranty so it was free. My warranty is now expired but the bill was less as it was an easier to fix part this time.
So I am happy to have my car back and to have it quiet again. I am grateful the bill was almost $100 less than I expected too. It is amazing how much we rely on our cars to get us from point a to point b. We really learn how much we usually use them when they are not around to be used.
