Happy and Grateful – Day 309

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 enjoy getting an “extra” hour of sleep when the clocks change, but I hate that it gets dark so early now.  How much longer until the days start growing longer?  Google said December 21st… that is still more than a month and a half away; too long of a wait if you ask me.  Oh well, it just means the daylight hours are that much more precious and we need to appreciate them.  And that is what I was grateful for this afternoon.  We finally had a break from the clouds and saw the sun!  It was nice to feel it streaming in through the window.  Only drawback is that it will be cold tonight with no clouds to hold in the heat.

I had a quick 5 minutes of happiness tonight.  When I went to my Dad’s to get him dinner I stopped by my daughter’s apartment and picked up laundry she needs done.  So I have a little work to do tomorrow but at least I got to see her for a short while tonight.  It always makes me happy to see her.

Now I want to pose a question to all of you… what am I going to do when my year is over in less than two months?  I think a year is more than long enough for my happiness and gratitude posts, but what should I do next?  I have a couple of ideas but would really like to hear your input.  Thanks for taking the time to read this and remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a wonderful night/day!
