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 day ten of 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Ten of 365 Days of Thankfulness
I feel thankful for electricity today. The thought of a power outage in winter makes me shutter. Think about all the things you lose when the lines go down. Without electricity, the lights don’t come on when you flip the switch, and the furnace stops working. Your computer lasts the duration of your battery life, and by that time, your hands are too cold to type. We don’t give a second thought to electricity until it’s not working. Then we spend time on the phone with the power company begging for it to be turned back on. Today, I’m thankful for electricity.

Love these “Thankfulness” series, Molly. Keep ’em coming. True. No one wants the lights our during winter. The little things we take for granted, alas. We’ve a lot to be thankful for. Thank you for sharing.
Being thankful for electricity is just right these days. Thanks for lifting up this daily, urgent need.
