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.
A little late as seems to be the trend for me this month. But I am determined to accomplish this one way or another and I am very close to the end, so forgive me for being a little late once more.
Yesterday was a day to recover from a full day at the clinic the day before. My back was hurting quite a bit and as usual the fatigue was ever-present, but I held on without any naps this time. I was grateful to have my heating pad to ease the pain a little.
I did have a visit from my daughter. She came over after work and did some laundry, borrowed my printer and ate dinner with us. It always makes me happy to see her. But it seems I always use her visits as my happy for the day. There are more things I can be happy for… food, clothing, and a roof over my head, someone who loves me to share the night with, a family within reach if I need them, a lovely view of the Christmas tree, a chance to see the cards from those who care decorating the hall, etc. There is always much to be happy and grateful for.
Now I need to get back to my letters and cards. My list is getting shorter all the time. I may even be done early enough to be able to make some candies and cookies next week… must have my pretzels in white chocolate and potato chips in milk chocolate, salty sweet goodness! Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a wonderful day/night!
