May has arrived and I hope it brings lots of Spring cheer with it. I am in my fifth month now of taking time to acknowledge the things that make me happy and grateful every day… almost half way to my goal of a full year. If you want to join in on this challenge please add your thoughts in the comments or start your own blog. There is a lot to be happy and grateful for!
Phew, it got warm today. Ok… I guess the temperature wasn’t really that high but the humidity was up there quite a bit. You would think a state in the middle of the county away from the massive water of the ocean would be a little dryer. No such luck. It is the one reason I dread Iowa summers.
I am still feeling down. Feeling alone. But it is nice to know there are a few of you out there that are reading my words. And I think this blog is my happy for the day. I may be dealing with depression but I can still focus and find at least one thing to be happy and grateful for. That means a lot when I am like this.
I did not get a lot done today. Had a recheck on my cholesterol today and did a little laundry. A pretty quiet day and for that I am grateful. The tears have been close to falling all day and I was able to clean out some of my email inbox to distract myself for a part of the day.
I never know if these days will come in a couple of days and be done, or stretch into a week or more. I just have to ride the tide and do all I can to remember that it will pass. I can empty some emotions onto the screen and take a little comfort in that.
Sorry this blog is kind of all over the place… I will get some more sleep hopefully and try to write a little more clearly tomorrow (technically later today). I hope everyone has a good Memorial Day weekend!
