We Would Never Share Chocolate

It has been ten years

And I miss you as much now

As I did the day you left

Nearly every day that goes by

I still remember you

And wish I could be with you again

Just a moment to say I love you

To hear your laughter

To share some music

You taught me so much

And I feel I never told you thanks

What I wouldn’t give

To play parcheesi one more time

To sit next to you at a concert

To share a bar of chocolate

(That’s not right – we’d each have our own)

Often I wish there were guarantees

That I will see you again

Until my day comes

I can only hope

July 17th wasn’t the end

Happy and Grateful – Day 188

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.

One would think they will have to run out soon.  The sale of fireworks was only through the Fourth of July but they are still lighting them nightly around here.  Not like they did last weekend, but just enough to notice.  I have been on edge enough today without the added anxiety of miniature explosions outside.

It has been a higher anxiety day.  And FULL of fatigue.  I napped twice again and am barely keeping my eyes open now.  Fatigue and anxiety at the same time often result in fitful sleep and a string of “naps” instead of a good nights sleep.  Might take my stronger anxiety meds tonight to sleep.  Would love to close my eyes and sleep for days, but that would come with problems too.

My happiness of the day was a treat of some chocolate.  Not anything fantastic like a Dagoba chocolate bar, but enough to take care of the sweet tooth that was yearning today.  I am a confessed chocoholic!

Gratitude today comes in the form of a text from a friend.  Been feeling kind of low tonight and his reply brought a little joy to me.  He is in a busy life and it always feels good when he takes a little time to talk to me.

Going to go play with some more words.  It always helps to write out a little of the pain and emotions when they bring me down.  If I come up with anything good I will post it.  Remember to find your happiness and gratitude every day.
