Day Two of 365 Days of Thankfulness 

It took weeks for me to decide on a blogging challenge for 2022. I didn’t want to lose the momentum I achieved in 2021. The light bulb moment came while I got my morning steps in the gym. Ideas come to me when I walk. I know the plan isn’t original. After all, I know of people who have done the 365 days of thankfulness challenge. I’ve never attempted to express this level of gratitude in any official capacity. How hard can it be, right? This post expresses It took weeks for me to decide on a blogging challenge for 2022.

Day Two of 365 Days of Thankfulness

I am very thankful our health insurance company offers a free gym membership to people over 65. The expense makes perfect sense. A person who moves is healthier than someone who spends all of their time sitting in front of the television. Rooster and I would never be able to afford the monthly fee if our insurance company didn’t offer it in their plan. We went over to the YMCA and joined an hour after discovering the Silver Sneaker program.

Before COVID shut everything down, I walked five miles a day, averaging over 12,000 steps. I walked around the building where I worked on my lunch hour. I also took the long way around to use the restroom and parked a distance away from the building to get in extra steps. Then came the layoffs and eventually retirement. I couldn’t find an even paved track where I could walk. The knee replacement slowed me down. Silver Sneakers and the Y has put me back on the move. Rooster uses the machines, and I walk on the inside track.

In conclusion

I am an old lady. My glimpses of thankfulness may not be the same as the ones you might select. I believe we can all relate in some way to the blessings we’ve been given in life. They are landmarks in our human experience. Thankfulness is an adventure we can all take together. Would you please leave a comment and share with me some of the things you are thankful for today.
