Happy and Grateful – Day 322

November brings a chill in the air and the start of the holiday gatherings of family and friends.  I can’t believe I am down to the last two month of my challenge to find happiness and feel gratitude every day.  I hope you join with me in the comments or your own blog in this challenge.  No matter how small there is always a little good in even the worst day.

My anxiety is rattling right off the charts tonight.  You have to understand this is a pretty small town I live in. The news tonight left me shook up.  Less than a mile from where I live there was what appears to be an attempted robbery that ended up with the victim dead from a gun shot to the chest.  They do not have the suspects in custody yet.  As night falls I am more and more nervous… I know I shouldn’t be, but I am.  There just is not a high rate of crime here.  This is the first homicide of the year.  But I do have my anxiety medication to hopefully help me sleep.

So today did have some good moments.  I got a surprise visit from my daughter for a short while today.  She had gotten the wrong drink at Starbucks and brought it to me since she knew I liked chai lattes. I was happy to see her even if only for a short time.

Tonight I tried something different for dinner.  I put pork chops in the crock pot to cook with some apple butter and spiced apple rings… they came out sweet and delicious.  I was grateful they tasted good.

Well it is time to take my night-time meds and hope to sleep.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a wonderful night/day!
