June brings warmer weather and the start of summer. Hopefully it brings many ideas from my muse too. I continue to write for my challenge to find the things that make me happy and grateful each day this year. Please feel free to join me in this challenge with comments about your happiness and gratitude or start your own blog. There is always something good to find in each day.
Not too bad today… a little warmer, but there was a nice breeze. I think now we head into a period of rain possible every evening again as the heat of the day cooks up some storms. But that is summertime in Iowa.
I feel like I have to stretch today to make my happy and grateful work. I just have not had one of my better days today. Tired, irritable, headache, backache, and a boyfriend who had too much to drink make for a rough end to a long day. I did however hear from a friend from Nebraska who will be here in the area this weekend and hopefully we can connect at some time and maybe have dinner. Haven’t seen her in over a year so it would be really good to see her. I was happy to get that little bit of hope.
I have to say tonight I am grateful for my laptop. I can connect to WordPress, email friends and even keep in touch with my doctor through it. It is my connection to a world that is sometimes frightening and out of reach in a lot of ways. If I hadn’t needed to run to my Dad’s tonight to get him dinner I would have stayed locked up here all day… on a day like today that is not all bad. I am not to the point I never want to leave, but that thought does scare me sometimes.
I am going to read a few more posts and try to get some rest. Maybe I will wake up better tomorrow… maybe not. Remember to be grateful for the little things!
