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!
Today was just a day… not good, not bad just kind of there. The highlight of the day was a trip to the grocery store to stock up on food for the week. But it was not totally boring. I did see a friend I used to work with and that made me happy. She even had some good news and said her reoccurring health issues were finally diagnosed and fixed with surgery. I was very happy for her… only took the doctors about 15 years to figure it out!
My gratitude for the day would have to be a simple one. We had the money to stock up the pantry. My boyfriend had a little extra vacation time on his check so it helped stretch the budget just when we needed it.
I need to get ready to take my boyfriend to work… I might have fallen asleep before I did my posts for the night, oops. I hope you find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a good night/day!
