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 fourteen of 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Fourteen of 365 Days of Thankfulness
On this fourteenth day of January, I want to express my thankfulness for my new metal knee. When I was in high school, I watched The Bionic Woman every time it came on the television. Lindsey Wagnor navigated her life, kicking ass and taking names after her body was put back with metal parts. My new knee won’t allow me to make the same moves, but it has given me a chance to walk without fear of falling. I had knee replacement surgery a year ago, and every day I’m glad I decided to go through with the operation.
The old woman 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.
