Happy and Grateful – Day 30

I have undertaken a challenge this year.  I am trying to find the good in every day by writing about happiness and gratitude that I feel.  No matter how small there is always something to bring a smile or make you grateful, if just for a moment.  Follow along with me as I dig deep as necessary and find the peace of the day.  Join in if you are feeling happy and grateful too – in the comments or on your own blog.  Let’s find some fun!

One thing I have always liked to do is read.  I find trouble finding time to read now when I am not too fatigued and I also have to watch for days when the fibro fog is bad because I have to read sections over again.  Recently I have been doing some books on CD to listen to and find I can still get lost in a good book that way.  I was able to find almost a full hour today that I was alert and clear-headed enough to listen to my lasted audio book, Joe Hill’s NOS4A2.

Reading can take you to another world, a beautiful escape from the stress of reality at times.  I am happy I can still indulge in that illusion from time to time.  I am grateful for a local library that is well stocked in all books including audio books.  And they say reading is good for the mind… sometimes I feel like my mind needs all the help it can get.
