Day Twenty-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 day twenty-two of 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day Twenty-Two of 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day twenty-two of my 365 days of thankfulness, I feel thankful for Choo Choo McGoo’s. McGoo’s is a local restaurant. In the past, this establishment was known as Ducky’s. Rooster and I have been eating here for many years. The diner-style locally owned restaurant serves good down-home cooking, and the new owners did some serious updating and redecorating. They displayed my old high school mascot on a shelf in the corner. This restaurant became the inspiration for the Cup & Spoon in my Henhouse series. We often join my daughter and her family here on Friday nights.

We worried this dining establishment might not survive COVID. So many small businesses disappeared in the mass hysteria. Then there was the worker shortage. Fortunately, most of the people in my world went back to work. The only slackers I know are Rooster and me. We retired, and we refuse to go back. 

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.
