Happy and Grateful -Day 255

The kids are all in school, there is a growing crisp in the air.  Football games and shorter days fill the weeks.  It is September.  I have accomplished another month of acknowledging my happiness and gratitude every day.  Join me as I continue my goal of one year on this journey.  Please join in with your happiness and gratitude in the comments or your own blog post.  No matter how bad the day is there is always something worthwhile in the day.

Today I took my Dad to the DMV to get him a non-driver ID so he has a valid ID he can use if need be.  It took about 35 minutes, not too bad of a wait.  I am just grateful it is done and he has identification now.

Just last week I sent off a card for a friend who was having a 50th birthday card shower.  I got a message from her today and it sounds like the shower was a success.  She got a lot of cards and was happy with the outpouring of love from friends and family.  It made me happy to be a part of it.  I have known her since kindergarten… that is a lot of years!

A busy day tomorrow so I should get some sleep.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a great night/day!

Happy and Grateful – Day 250

The kids are all in school, there is a growing crisp in the air.  Football games and shorter days fill the weeks.  It is September.  I have accomplished another month of acknowledging my happiness and gratitude every day.  Join me as I continue my goal of one year on this journey.  Please join in with your happiness and gratitude in the comments or your own blog post.  No matter how bad the day is there is always something worthwhile in the day.

I slept better last night… and this morning, and some of the afternoon too!  I slept so well I slept right through my doctor’s appointment for the week.  Now I have to wait another week to bare my soul.  But it works out well really.  He recommended a workbook about mindfulness and it should be delivered tomorrow.  This way I will have a little “homework” done before I see him again.  I do hate missing that appointment.  But I am grateful I slept better.

I did my part in helping out a friend today.  One of the women I went to school with is about to have her 50th birthday and her sister wanted to do a card shower for her.  So I went to my craft desk and got a little ink and glue on my hands.  It always makes me happy to create a card.  I sure hope she gets a lot of cards.  This is the first card shower I have been a part of.

Well my meds are making me tired… I hope to get this published before I fall asleep, unlike last night.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a nice night/day.
