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.
Today was a day to try to catch my breath. I literally swallowed wrong today and it resulted in about 5 minutes of coughing and wheezing until I was breathing somewhat normally again. But it was also a day to try to catch up.
I have been on the go for several days and just couldn’t do it anymore. I made it to take Dad to his Wednesday coffee, but the errands I was going to run I put off for another day. The laundry will keep another day. And my boyfriend fixed dinner. I was grateful to be able to listen to my body when it said stop.
I did take a little of my down time to scan some old photographs into my computer. My daughter was wanting some pictures of her dad and I had a stack of them to scan for her. I even included the one of him sporting a mullet and me in shorts with sunburned legs (the reason why I rarely wear shorts – I just burn). It made me happy to have a little trip down memory lane today. But it was bittersweet as it reminded me of all I lost too.
Sleep is knocking on the door now… I am overdue in answering it. Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude. Have a wonderful night/day!
