Small Wins Make Me Happy In The Moment
Small wins make me happy in the moment. They do not come often but when I went grocery shopping Monday I had a couple of what I call small wins, things that are unexpected for which I am grateful to have been available to me.
there were enough bags of the cat food brand I feed the cats that I was able to get the 4 16 lb bags I need for 2 weeks;
there was one bottle of the detergent I use for Kitson’s black clothes;
there was plenty of the yogurt flavor I eat at work so I was able to buy 10;
there were plenty of the particular blueberry cookies I eat with cream cheese for breakfast;
the crock pot I planned to give as a gift was still available;
and the dietary supplement I take to help my mind work a little better was there for me to buy.
That doesn’t happen very often. Lately one or more of the items listed above are not available and I am unable to locate them in a timely manner. I buy groceries once every two weeks: on payday. And we go on from there. I do not like having to return to pick up needed items, besides milk, when they are not available when we make our grocery /errand run.
But to top all the wins off:
we went to the hardware the next day to purchase my dad’s Christmas present and found the perfect thing in less than 5 minutes.
And then, come to find out, we get to have Christmas on Christmas instead of Christmas Eve (which we usually have to do due to sister-in-law’s family).
So, besides having at least 4 cats with poopy tails currently (they drank the muddy water), I have to say I am a happy camper.
And yes, I did say “Thank You, Lord.”
Care to share some of your small wins with me? I would love to hear about them.
Merry Christmas and God bless us, everyone.
