When I first woke, however, I was having an anxiety attack. As a bit of humor, today is also National Stress Awareness Day. I didn't know that yet as I practiced my relaxation breathing techniques to be sure I started the day on the right foot. It was a good laugh later when I saw the email.
Apparently today is also National Cook For Your Dog Day. Unfortunately for my dogs this is doubtful today but maybe this weekend I can whip them up some homemade treats. For today they will just get a few extra loves and a store-bought treat.
As a random addition to today's holidays; it is National Brush Day... I feel like maybe this was created by a mom whose kid resisted hygiene. I have no idea but it gave me a chuckle. My daughter, on the other hand, is obsessed with brushes right now so it is a great day for her!
I'm grateful for random holidays that make me laugh. I'm grateful for my daughter's love of simple things. I'm grateful for taking the time to start the day on a positive note. I'm grateful for my sweet dogs. I'm grateful to celebrate my dad's birthday and my luck at having him for a dad. I'm grateful for my friend who, despite only having known her a few years, has become one of my best friends. I'm grateful for all the blessings in my life today as I head off into a busy but beautiful day.
What gave you a laugh this morning? What random things would you like to celebrate today?
May today remind us to celebrate the people in our lives. May we find humor in the little things and celebrate the random things. Have a beautiful day!
