Happy and Grateful – Day 238

Seven months are gone now and surprisingly I am still plugging along with this challenge to post about my happiness and gratitude every day this year.  August brings the state fair here in Iowa and lots of heat and humidity.  It is the time to see the back to school shopping start with kids dreading it and parents loving it.  As I continue my challenge I hope you will take a minute to reflect on your day too.  You can even share your happiness and gratitude here in the comments or on your own blog.  There is good in every day!

Ouch!  I just moved my legs to get comfortable and felt the pain of the day.  But I think the pain was worth it.  Today was a summer festival in the town I lived in when I was married.  It is where my daughter grew up and we still go back there every year for the parade and vendors.  This year was no different.  We got some candy and goodies at the parade, walked the vendors booths and had a nice lunch. It makes me happy to still celebrate this tradition with my daughter.

Today I ran into two friends I used to work with.  One just celebrated his 30th birthday and the other I don’t think I have seen in over a year.I am always grateful to see my old friends from time to time.

Well I am going to try to ignore the other thing I got at the festival = a sunburn – and get some sleep.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude!
