I did it again, I always seem to go months without posting anything! I have been meaning to get to it, though. I wrapped up my 100 happy days stint a while ago and what I learned was that I love food. and dogs. Many of my posts were of these. It was sometimes a challenge to remember to post something that made me happy, but ultimately I think the challenge was a big success for me and I learned to appreciate the little things like sunshine or flowers. I will have to come back and post more of the images where I left off. I also wanted to do a post on how thankful I am and grateful. I know sometimes we make fun of people who use #blessed and that’s not what I’m going for, but I have a full life with people I love, organizations I care about, family, friends, work, etc. I am very lucky to be where I am today, but everything is still a learning process. I started doing 5 minute positive meditations in the morning. I think this is something I had been wanting to do, but wasn’t quite ready.  You can’t force these things. I saw this secret and thought it summed up my new found clarity perfectly.


Also, as I have mentioned, I volunteer for the Almost Home Foundation. We had our Running 4 Rescue event on Sunday. It was a 5k walk or 3k run. My sister’s fiance got 2nd place in the run which was fun and exciting! However, what I found the most wonderful of the day was that a little girl, maybe 7 years old collected dontations for us and raised $250. She put check after check into our donation bucket at the registation table. How sweet! I thought that was so nice and I wish I had thanked her more. She was adorable and how caring of her to take the time to raise money for our cause. It was so sweet! Overall, the event was a success! It was stressful and crazy, but a great learning experience and a fun time. I think the participants really enjoyed it and we raised a bunch of money which is great!
