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.
My anxiety is rattling right off the charts tonight. You have to understand this is a pretty small town I live in. The news tonight left me shook up. Less than a mile from where I live there was what appears to be an attempted robbery that ended up with the victim dead from a gun shot to the chest. They do not have the suspects in custody yet. As night falls I am more and more nervous… I know I shouldn’t be, but I am. There just is not a high rate of crime here. This is the first homicide of the year. But I do have my anxiety medication to hopefully help me sleep.
So today did have some good moments. I got a surprise visit from my daughter for a short while today. She had gotten the wrong drink at Starbucks and brought it to me since she knew I liked chai lattes. I was happy to see her even if only for a short time.
Tonight I tried something different for dinner. I put pork chops in the crock pot to cook with some apple butter and spiced apple rings… they came out sweet and delicious. I was grateful they tasted good.
Well it is time to take my night-time meds and hope to sleep. Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a wonderful night/day!
