One of my favorite months is upon us. I love the wonder of the holidays. How it can light up young and old alike. The weather is (usually) starting to change the world white and frosty. And the promise of a new year is just around the corner. This is the final month of my attempt to find the things that make me happy and grateful every day for a year… I have mixed emotions that it will be ending. Please join me these last few days and post your happiness and gratitude in the comments or on your own blog. There is always some good in the day no matter how small.
I am having trouble keeping up these last few days. I am still a poem behind but hope to get to it yet tonight if the muses are so inclined. It has been a long day though…
Yesterday was a pretty quiet day. I was happy to spend just a little bit of time with my daughter. She stopped by to pick up her laundry and we watched one episode of the soap. We would have visited longer but I had my weekly therapy session.
My boyfriend was pretty worn out after a busy day at work and went to bed early. I was grateful to have my Christmas cards to keep me busy and my mind off the empty room.
Today was a long day. It started as just a simple blood draw and a check-up at the doctor for my Dad… 5 hours later I finally got him back home from the clinic. They did x-rays, blood work and a CT scan. I was grateful everything checked out ok, but all the waiting for tests added up to a lot of time.
Being at the clinic all day I didn’t get lunch and I had not gotten up early enough for breakfast before hand… I was really happy to eat dinner. It was only burgers, but boy did it taste good after not eating all day.
So now I need to try my hand at “meager” for a poem and get back to work on a letter or two before I fall asleep. I hope you remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a wonderful night/day!
