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-six of 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Twenty-Six of 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day twenty-six of my 365 days of happiness, I am grateful for my son Richard. He came into the world weighing 10 lbs. 14.5 ounces. Today is his birthday. He is one of the most creative and intelligent people I know, and he is courageous and confident, bold and brave, and born with the heart of an explorer. He took the courageous step to move to New York City to follow his dreams. I am proud to be his mother and blessed to be his friend: happy birthday, Richard, my beautiful black-haired son.
In the picture, Richard is the tall guy standing in the back. We took it the day he flew to New York City to start a new life. We miss him very much because COVID spoils every plan we make to see him. He says he’s doing fine, but a mother can’t help worrying about her baby chick.
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.
