Happy and Grateful – Day 183

July brings fireworks, picnics, pools and air conditioning. It is a time for those of us in the USA to celebrate our “birthday” and a personal time for me to celebrate life. It is hot and humid days and thunderstorms cooked up at night. I am continuing my challenge to find happiness and gratitude in every day. Join along in the comments or on your own blog. There is always good in every day.

Today was pretty nice.  It was a chance to sleep in (Hurray!) and take it easy.  Only had one thing to do today.  I was grateful for a chance to just sleep until I woke up (thank you for that bladder) and then go back to sleep because it was still “too early.”

My one thing to do was wonderful!  No, not a trip to the park finally, a visitor from out of state.  She has been a family friend for over 30 years… my uncle introduced us.  She runs a restaurant and is quite a little bundle of energy.  It really made me happy to see her again and have a nice dinner with her and the family.  (…went to a nice Irish restaurant and I had boxty for the first time, it was delicious!)

The hour is getting late and I do have to set alarms for in the morning to take my Dad to the clinic for blood work.  I should wind down and try and get some rest.  Tomorrow is another day… a special day.
