Happy and Grateful – Day 275

The month of October is upon us.  Fall is in full swing with the leaves gathering on the lawn… maybe a pile or two to run through even.  The evenings are getting dark earlier as the days grow shorter.  And a few of us look forward to a good scare with Halloween coming this month.  Everyday has at least some small portion of good in it.  I am looking for that good with this challenge to find my happiness and gratitude every day.  Join in with the challenge by commenting or writing your own blog… let’s find some goodness today.

I spent some time trying to comfort a friend today.  Her son lost his battle with cancer.  There is not much to do other than offer a shoulder to cry on and arms to hold onto each other.  We shared a lunch at a local park trying to continue with some sort of normalcy.  My heart breaks for her,  but I was happy to be there for her in any small way possible.

My Dad has had no change in his leg.  The swelling has not gone down, nor has the pain.  He had to do a blood draw and the ladies at the lab were concerned about him.  They arranged for an appointment with the doctor for Tuesday.  I am grateful that they look out for him.

Once again the fatigue got me last night but this is not as late as the last two days were.  I think I may be headed back to on track.  Now to read a few posts before I have to take my Dad to his appointment.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a good night/day!

  1. You are right that “everyday has at least some small portion of good in it.” I have consciously and subconsciously decided to be grateful and wear a positive disposition on a daily basis irrespective of the chaotic and troubling times we live in. I realized that there are things we cannot change about the workings of Nature. And we only need to accept those situations. In the end, life will be what it was meant to be. Inherently good or bad!

    So sorry about your friend’s son. We win some battles and we lose some too. Life is an irony. Sending your Dad positive thoughts and healing prayers. Hoping that there will be a respite and things will improve in our personal lives and the world at large. Blessings. 🙂
