Happy and Grateful – Day 32

This is February and I am well on my way to attaining a goal I set for myself.  I am trying to post every day with happiness and gratitude that I have encountered that day.  There is always something no matter how small it may seem that we can be grateful for and even just a shared smile can make you happy if only for a moment.  Please try to find those moments for yourself too…  if you’re up to it I would love if you would share them too in the comments or your own blog.  Being aware can really turn a day around!

Today was a pretty constant on the go day.  My daughter called with a last-minute request to go out for lunch together so I threw myself together and picked her up at her apartment so we could head to Perkins.  It is always such a joy for me to see her, and an unexpected chance to visit is always nice.  But we could not relax too long as I had to take my Dad to an appointment.  Then off to the pharmacy to pick up some meds.  Home for about an hour and a half.  Back to my Dad’s to fix him dinner.  Back to the store for cold medicine as my boyfriend came home not feeling well.  And finally home for the night.  Phew!

I am hoping all that running will help me sleep good tonight.  But right now I am still kind of wired from the on the go day.  But I am happy I was able to squeeze in time with my daughter.  And once again I find myself grateful to be able to help my Dad out after all he has done for me growing up.  I feel pretty lucky to have him as a Dad and feel no shame in saying I love him every day.  He may be my hero but he is not immortal and I treasure every day I can have with him still.
