Happy and Grateful – Day 306

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.

Sorry I am once again late in posting.  Last night the fatigue got the best of me and hit me before I could even post my word prompt poem.  But I am rested and refreshed and as awake as I will get.  I have had my coffee and gone through my email for the day… now to take care of some WordPress business.

Yesterday was the end of several days of activity.  It was a busy day in itself.  I had a doctor’s appointment, Dad had one and I dropped off some soup for my daughter.  I was especially grateful to have my appointment with my therapist… it is a difficult week with my Mom’s birthday and the anniversary of my ex-husband’s death.  Visiting with my daughter though I feel better because she will not be alone on Saturday when her dad died,  She will be spending time with her boyfriend.  I know she misses her Dad terribly and unfortunately there is nothing I can do to take away that pain.

My happy moment was a little errand I ran for myself.  I went to Hobby Lobby to look for embossing folders.  I was sad to see there were none in stock that I wanted. but I still managed to find a few things on sale but kept my total under $10.  I love shopping a good sale!

Well I have things to do around the house so I need to put the laptop down.  I hope you find your happiness and feel your gratitude today.  Have a wonderful day/night!

Day 99 – 100 Days of Happiness

Today was a day full of errands to run.  But within the never ending go go go I did find a moment of happiness at the craft store.  I went looking for a gift cylinder to “wrap” a craft beer bottle for Christmas and I stumbled on a sale on a couple of supplies I ran out of while making Christmas cards.  I left with 4 things for about $11 … about half price on all of the purchases.  I love to shop like that!
