Happy and Grateful – Day 228

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!

It was a busy day today with coffee day for Dad, a stop at the tobacco shop (for my Dad) and dropping off books to my daughter.  Then I did a little paper work at home for my boyfriend… I am tired tonight.  But I was grateful most of my errands took place in between the little rain showers we had today.  I just wish we had gotten a little more rain than we did though.

Tonight my daughter came over to share some tacos for dinner and then try to catch up on our soap watching.  We had a purely girly moment and got all happy for a new plot twist with a surprising new couple getting together.  We laughed and cheered them on … it was a purely cheesy moment, but you have to be silly every once in a while.

All in all it was a pretty good day… I am just trying to hold onto that fact as I wind down in the lonely hours of the night.  I will do some more reading and try to get to sleep soon.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a good night/day!

Happy and Grateful – Day 152

June brings warmer weather and the start of summer.  Hopefully it brings many ideas from my muse too.  I continue to write for my challenge to find the things that make me happy and grateful each day this year.  Please feel free to join me in this challenge with comments about your happiness and gratitude or start your own blog.  There is always something good to find in each day.

Today it got a little warmer, trying to prepare us for tomorrow’s heat and humidity,  It was nice weather to walk to my doctor’s appointment.  Good for having the windows open and hearing the birds once again.  A beautiful start to June!

I was grateful to take a little time for me tonight and make it to a Al-anon meeting.  It was good to see some familiar faces and be reminded of some of the principles of the program.  I am really seeing benefits again of working the program.

Tonight after work my daughter stopped to watch a couple of soaps off the DVR and do some laundry.  Seeing her always makes me happy.

At least tomorrow I don’t have to be up as early as I was today.  So I should only need 3 alarms not 4 LOL!  Have a good night (or day depending on where you are) everyone!
