Happy and Grateful – Day 93

We have reached the month of April and I am still on course to post daily with my happiness and gratitude I have found.  Please join in if you feel like doing this too by sharing in the comments or on your own blog.  There is so much to be happy and grateful for.

I haven’t felt the best today but with the continued rain I am not surprised.  I just have to make it through two more days of this and then they say we get sunshine again!  I really need to look into getting one of those full spectrum lights that doubles as the suns rays when you can’t enjoy the real thing.  I do think it would help my mood.

Today was a day spent at home.  I had a card to make (ink on my hands always makes me happy) and a short letter to write for a friend who suffered a loss last week.  The cat was very cuddly today (sometimes I think she knows when I need a hug or cuddle) and kept me company in my lap or on my foot rest a majority of the day.  My boyfriend was busy doing stuff on his day off so I needed the company of my cat to feel less alone.

Not any big things, but the little moments that still can bring a smile and peace of heart.  I am grateful for every small moment I can get.

Happy and Grateful – Day 61 and 62

As March begins I continue with my goal to find happiness and gratitude every day.  There is at least some small thing that can bring a smile and give you a moment to be grateful for.  Please join me in looking for the good moments of the day … it would be great if you would share them in the comments or on your own blog.  Be aware of the little wonders of the day!

These last two days have been in full fibro flare – extra pain, extra fatigue and extra fog.  Extra is supposed to be good, but not in this case.  I have slept a lot and still feel like I have only slept a few short hours.  I have had a hard time reading posts and have to reread them often, so I am behind on reading posts.  I have had a bit of writer’s block and put together the best I could for the word prompts I missed.  And of course I am behind on my posts here and doubling up… I hope I can get back on track after tonight.

Fibro may have me slowed down, but I am still searching for little moments of joy.  And being in a flare it is often only little things that can break through the day as a whole.  A little girl talking to the fish tank at the clinic when I took Dad in today.  A very SLOW walk to my doctor’s appointment yesterday.  An old movie on TV last night, “What Ever Happened To Baby Jane.”  Today’s chat with my daughter.  All little moments, but they gave me a smile; they made me happy.  I am grateful to be able to recognize that joy still through the pain these last two days.
