The kids are all in school, there is a growing crisp in the air. Football games and shorter days fill the weeks. It is September. I have accomplished another month of acknowledging my happiness and gratitude every day. Join me as I continue my goal of one year on this journey. Please join in with your happiness and gratitude in the comments or your own blog post. No matter how bad the day is there is always something worthwhile in the day.
The days are noticeably getting shorter, the trees are already starting to change a little bit… I am not ready for fall. Don’t get me wrong, I like fall. It is just what comes after it that I dread. Of course with temperatures in the 90’s we are not going to have to worry about that soon. Although my Dad did tell me tonight they got snow in some part of Montana I think it was. In his words, “They can keep it there.”
First day this week I have not had any appointments to get to… it was nice for a change. I did go through my ever-growing stack of mail and shredded some nearly 30 credit card offers… and a majority were from the same company. What a waste of paper! But it was nice to have a fairly quiet day to get that done and I am grateful I can see that corner of the table again.
Today was not one of my happier days… really struggled with loneliness off and on today. But I was happy to get a message or two from a friend out-of-state. Hadn’t heard from him for a while and more than anything else it was SO NICE to have someone take the time to ask how I was doing. I will admit I hid behind a vague answer but it was still great to think that someone actually cares how I feel.
I need to try to sleep now that the thunderstorms have calmed down a little. Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a good night/day!
