Happy and Grateful – Day 225

Seven months are gone now and surprisingly I am still plugging along with this challenge to post about my happiness and gratitude every day this year.  August brings the state fair here in Iowa and lots of heat and humidity.  It is the time to see the back to school shopping start with kids dreading it and parents loving it.  As I continue my challenge I hope you will take a minute to reflect on your day too.  You can even share your happiness and gratitude here in the comments or on your own blog.  There is good in every day!

Another day to try new things… six word stories.  The extreme of limited words!  I don’t know if I cheated a bit by leading the story with a descriptive title or not, but I got it done I think.  It is on a subject I am passionate about.  I have seen one friends life almost ruined after she drove drunk.  I had a person I graduated with injured badly in a drunk driving accident.  And to this day I am so grateful my ex-husband never did drive when he was drunk… the one part of his alcoholism he seemed to have some control over.

It was another day to stick around home.  I did a little more computer “work” and some photo editing.  I am all ready for my Monochrome Monday post tomorrow.  I did get a package ready to mail out tomorrow (a book my daughter sold on Amazon).  Did some tidying up.  And got to talk to two different friends today – one on the phone and one online.  It was a good day two of vacation and I was happy to be at peace most of the day.

I need to get some rest… have to take my Dad to the clinic tomorrow for a blood draw so I can’t sleep in too late.  Find your happiness and feel your gratitude!  Have a good night/day!
