Happy and Grateful – Days 324, 325 and 326

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.

Ok… so I am a little behind.  I haven’t felt the best and I know that is no excuse for not taking 15 to 30 minutes to post this daily… I am sorry.  Monday night I fell asleep early and Tuesday I was with my daughter… so here we are on Wednesday and it is time to play catch up.

Day 324

I spent a lot of the day still worried about my friend I posted about last time.  It was a very quiet day… nowhere to go and no big plans of anything to do for the day.  So my gratitude was definitely the free time to do a little of nothing.  I was so wrapped up in nothing… I forgot all about my Monochrome Monday until today.  Let’s just say I took the week off for the coming holiday.  My happiness was watching a movie with my boyfriend.

Day 325

I woke up with a pretty sore back.  Did some of my PT exercises to try to loosen it up a bit.  Then took a nap.  Then took another… yeah two naps before my boyfriend came home at 4!  I then got kind of mad at my daughter.  She had said she would come over to do laundry and I got the impression she was talking about the early afternoon… I waited and waited, finally gave up and went to my Dad’s about 7 pm to get him dinner. Then of course she showed up.  So seeing her when I got back home did make me happy.  My gratitude would have to go to Nintendo for the day.  They came out with a version of Animal Crossing to play on the phone… I spent too much time on my phone yesterday!  LOL

Day 326

I was finally feeling a little bit better today.  I was able to make it into my craft desk and do a little card making.  I sent out two sympathy cards to friends who lost their mother this month.  Even if it is a sympathy card it makes me happy to create a little.  And tonight when I went to run a couple of quick errands I was able to talk my boyfriend into going with me, I was grateful for that.

Now I will try to stay on track the rest of my days doing this.  For the readers in America, have a happy Thanksgiving… I hope you share it with family and not employees in retail!  It is a day for togetherness not shopping.  But because I have a boyfriend in retail and a daughter in food service… our Thanksgiving will be a few days late (on Monday).  Once again I am sorry this was so late.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a wonderful night/day
