August Happiness Challenge -- Day 18

 Today's happiness -- That I can

Today wasn't the best day. I had morning work tension, followed by 90 minutes in the dentist chair. Then I came home to find a notice from Commonwealth Edison. My power is going to be off at some unspecified time on Monday between 8:00 and 6:00, which will make working from home impossible.

So what made me happy today?

That I have decent dental insurance, so I can pay this bill, and the next one (I have more appointments scheduled). I am not happy about this expense, of course. But I am happy that I can pay.

And I put some blessing bags in my purse. I took ZipLock bags and filled each one with a $1 bill, a packet of tissues, a ChapStick, and a breakfast bar. People who need a snack will get one, courtesy of me. It makes me happy that I can do that.

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.
