Happy and Grateful – Day 355

One of my favorite months is upon us. I love the wonder of the holidays.  How it can light up young and old alike.  The weather is (usually) starting to change the world white and frosty.  And the promise of a new year is just around the corner.  This is the final month of my attempt to find the things that make me happy and grateful every day for a year… I have mixed emotions that it will be ending.  Please join me these last few days and post your happiness and gratitude in the comments or on your own blog.  There is always some good in the day no matter how small.

Well I took a little snooze before I could write this…. out like a light after my poem.  But I woke up with my boyfriend this morning (he is not the most quiet person) and I am awake for a while now.  Let’s see if I can accomplish this!

It was a good day, busy but good.  Dad had another blood draw… sometimes he can go 2 to 3 weeks without testing then other times he is at the clinic 2 to 3 times a week, but at least they are keeping an eye on him.  After that I had one more gift to pick up.  I stopped at the Dollar Tree to get gift wrap and food tins for my goodies. Then back across town to see my doctor.

Just about every year I try to make my cookies and candies to share and the first place I shared my treats was at my doctor’s office.  The girls at the front desk are always so nice and as long as they promise to share with the doctor I treat them for the holiday.  I am happy to share and with such wonderful people… the help they give me does not go unnoticed.

After the doctor’s office it was off to the grocery store to purchase nearly the last of the gifts.  I now have only a calendar I ordered to pick up and lottery tickets to get and then I am done!  What a great feeling to be so close to done.  I am grateful for my “organization” this year so I can sit back and enjoy the holiday some.  I have three whole days to wrap presents!  Whoo hoo!

So it is time to drift back to sleep for a little while.  Four hours of sleep was just not enough.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a wonderful night/day!
