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-eight of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Twenty-Eight of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
I’m grateful the roads got salted on day twenty-eight on my 365 days of thankfulness. Rain fell from the sky and froze as soon as it hit the ground. The icy mess turned the roadways into a roller-skating rink for moving vehicles. Ice ranks as one of the worst driving conditions. It makes it feel like your vehicle is floating. When you come to a stop sign and put on your brakes, the driver will discover they don’t work. It doesn’t matter how hard you pump them; the car will not stop. You slide through the stop sign, thankful another vehicle wasn’t around.
These driving conditions are what the citizens of our small city were faced with until the city road crew drove the salt trucks out of the barn. It didn’t take long for these brave men to bring the streets back under control. I am thankful for all their work and am blessed that the city streets got salted.
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.
