Day Twelve 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 day twelve of 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day Twelve of 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day twelve of my 365 days of Thankfulness, I want to say I am grateful for books. You can take away my television, but please don’t touch my novels. I’d have difficulty parting with my computer because I use the annoying machine to write blogs and books. I’d gladly hand you my cell phone. I only use it to listen to music anyway. If you call me, I won’t answer my phone because of all the scammers. Leave a message, and I will call you back. That’s my motto.

I wouldn’t want to live in a world without books. I love the way a story unfolds as I move through the pages. A book can transport you to another world. A certain power of the imagination exists in a good story. The great thing about reading in 2022 revolves around never leaving home to add a new novel to your collection. All you need to do is order it on your Kindle. I love my Kindle.

The old lady Speaks

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 to the blessings in life, even during a pandemic. 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.

  1. I´m with you on this one. If I had to choose between jewellery or books, I would always pick books. Even as a child, I would think about what if there was a fire in our house. I would plan to open my window, throw out my books and then jump out myself. When we move, the bulk of the boxes are books.
