Happy and Grateful – Day 314

November brings a chill in the air and the start of the holiday gatherings of family and friends.  I can’t believe I am down to the last two month of my challenge to find happiness and feel gratitude every day.  I hope you join with me in the comments or your own blog in this challenge.  No matter how small there is always a little good in even the worst day.

I feel like I have to make this a fairly quick short and sweet post.  One reason is I am exhausted and afraid I will fall asleep before I am done.  And the other is so I don’t get sidetracked talking about my depression.

It was a cold day, but once again I did not have to venture out much in it.  I did get out in the cold to go and fix my Dad some dinner,  And on the way there I mailed a Christmas card.  No, believe me I don’t normally send out cards this early but this was a special request.

The local news website had a story on a little boy with neuroblastoma who may not make it to Christmas this year who wanted a card shower for early Christmas cards.  So I went into my craft corner and created a little something to send.  This had two benefits.  It made me happy to get ink on my hands and I was grateful to have a very healthy daughter.  It also made me happy to try to bring a little bit of joy to this boy’s difficult last days.

That is all I have in me tonight.  Sinuses are killing me, and I am so close to sleep… yawn!  I hope you remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a wonderful night/day!
