August Happiness Challenge -- Day 8

Joey and I visited the vet this morning. Except for arthritis and mild hypertension, Joe is in "fine shape" for a cat of his advanced years. I'm so happy and relieved!

Last November he was so sick, I really thought I was going to lose the big guy. Cats of his age are susceptible to diabetes and cancer. But he came through that illness like a champ and has been lively (by 20 year old standards) and affectionate.

I am lucky to have Joe in my life. I'm grateful for him every day, but especially today.

What's that you say? What's the August Happiness Challenge?

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.


If you want to play along, just come back here (meaning to this blog, not this individual post) each day in August, looking for the happy chocolate cone. Every day I will try to have a post with the headline: August Happiness Challenge: Day [X]. Leave a comment and then post your own daily happiness, with August Happiness Challenge in the title to make it easy to find.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
