Seven months are gone now and surprisingly I am still plugging along with this challenge to post about my happiness and gratitude every day this year. August brings the state fair here in Iowa and lots of heat and humidity. It is the time to see the back to school shopping start with kids dreading it and parents loving it. As I continue my challenge I hope you will take a minute to reflect on your day too. You can even share your happiness and gratitude here in the comments or on your own blog. There is good in every day!
It is very late … or extra early depending on how you look at 4AM. But we had lots of fun playing cards into the wee hours of the morning. I laughed and felt honest joy tonight. I was happy sharing the night with my family and friend. Now I am trying to wind down to be able to sleep. My friend is on the couch doing the same. And my boyfriend was out about 15 minutes after the game ended.
We did have special help with the game…
The rest of the day was pretty mellow. Spent much of the afternoon talking with my friend and I was grateful she had time on this trip to come over and stay with us.
The cards are put away and the lights are turned down… time to close my eyes. Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a good night/day.
