Feeling Happy and Grateful

There was a time when I could just stare at a blank page and the words would just flow but it seems as of late that I struggle to find the words to write. Everything is going so well that I am at a loss as to what the topic should be. I can tell you that I am grateful for this time of respite and that because everything is going so well that I am feeling not quite euphoric but definitely pretty close. I have recently increased the mood stabilizer that I take for my bipolar disorder and it seems to be helping a lot plus we are having much more sunlight. That alone is reason enough to be feeling better. Griffin has been in a great mood lately and having exceptionally good behaviors, I think that part of it is because he picks up on my mood. He is sensitive to how I am feeling and reacts accordingly. So, this post is about not really anything specific but just life in general. I am grateful that my car is still hanging in there because it is a 1988 model and on its last leg. It looks rough but is running good so far, every day that it cranks in the bitter cold I am so very thankful that I am going to get yet another day out of it. In this time of transition of seasons, as it slowly moves into the springtime, I am grateful for having my very nice apartment that gives us shelter from the elements and is really quite cozy. The more I write the less I like what I am saying so I am tempted to delete the whole thing and start over but I have come this far, might as well finish it up now. Griffin's laughter is what I am most grateful for because it means that he is happy and healthy which is our greatest blessings. So, on that note I am going to close and say that because of all the wonderful things in my life I am the happiest person that I know right now. Thanks for reading our blog and hope that you have a most excellent day!
