Happy and Grateful – Day 301

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.

The month is starting to wind down and I am feeling more and more depressed.  My mom has been gone for 7 years but I still miss her so on her birthday which would be on Tuesday.  I miss the friendship we had.  I miss her sense of humor.  I miss her love of children.  I miss her love of music.  I just miss her.  I don’t feel it will ever get easier to be without her.  But I am grateful for the memories I have that no one can take away.

Another one of Moms loves was ISU football… today was their homecoming game and they won.  It would have made Mom happy and it did make me happy that they won.

I am getting tired so it is time to finish this up.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a wonderful night/day!

  1. Sorry to hear you are feeling down, but it sounds like your mother was a lovely woman. You are so fortunate to have had her. I am certain (at least as I am a mother myself) that she would be greatly touched to know how much she meant to you, and how well she is remembered. Try to remember her with tears in your eyes and a smile on your lips… just the way she would to be remembered – to know that she mattered.
