Happy and Grateful – Day 266

The kids are all in school, there is a growing crisp in the air.  Football games and shorter days fill the weeks.  It is September.  I have accomplished another month of acknowledging my happiness and gratitude every day.  Join me as I continue my goal of one year on this journey.  Please join in with your happiness and gratitude in the comments or your own blog post.  No matter how bad the day is there is always something worthwhile in the day.

Today was another hot day… still in the 80’s after 10pm.  We are in for another hot one tomorrow, but then rain and cooler temperatures drop in.  I am ready for sweatshirt weather.  If I can just hold on a little bit longer…

It is beginning to look like we may have to invest in a new TV.  We have been having the picture go dim on us off and on now.  And for the second time now the sound has acted up and sounds all garbled.  I hate to think about spending that kind of money.  If it could just hold out until next year maybe, that isn’t that far away.  *fingers crossed*  But it was a second-hand TV and it has lasted at least 2 1/2 years with us.  Not bad for a TV these days.  I am grateful it has lasted as long as it has.

I heard from my best friend today.  He is out-of-state and busy so much of the time anymore I don’t get to talk to him near as often as I would like.  It always makes me happy when I hear from him.

It is late and my pain meds are kicking in.  My back had more than enough stress on it today with laundry and shopping for over an hour for groceries.  I don’t think I could get back up if I bent over once more today.  Oh well… I got things accomplished.  Remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a good night/day!


I awoke with a start

I was already panicked

Was the noise all a dream

Or was something the matter.

The sound woke me up

It was really quite loud

Was it a fire cracker going off

Or was it something more.

I looked all around inside

Peeked out through the curtains

But all seemed quite normal

Nothing held a fiery glow.

So it had to have been a dream

But I still can’t help but wonder

If some exterior sound may have

Warped my reality a bit this morning.
