Day Thirty-Nine of my 365 Days of Thankfulness  

We entered the frigid month of February, and I’m still plugging away at my 2022 blogging challenge. It took me a while to come up with an idea, but I decided what I needed most in the coming year was to adopt an attitude of gratitude. The world suddenly got filled with so much tragedy and conflict I found it hard to appreciate the blessings in my life. Thus, I started my 365 days of thankfulness challenge. I start my day searching for some way to express appreciation for life, even if it is a small and insignificant element. Many small things can add up to a big blessing. During month one, I cover most of the major stuff. I’m starting to wonder if I can keep going in month two. I’ve never attempted to express gratitude as the primary subject of my writing. I’m finding it to be more difficult than I first thought. This post covers day thirty-nine of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day Thirty-Nine of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day thirty-nine of my 365 days of happiness, I am grateful for my new Kindle. A few months ago, Rooster insisted I buy a new one. It’s part of his strategy to save the foundation of our house. I’ve already admitted to being a book hoarder. We all know that Rooster is cheap, cheap, but he figures that ordering books online will save us money in the future. He’s probably right, but he doesn’t know how fast I can order a ton of them from Amazon. The only thing saving us from bankruptcy is I don’t remember my password. I know I can change it. I just don’t want to go through the hassle.

My new Kindle is faster and as large as a book, making it easier to read. It also has a groovy, purple outer covering. When I say groovy, I am completely serious. My new Kindle is covered in peace signs, flowers, and rainbows. I feel like a throwback to the 60s every time I use it. Plus, I’ve discovered a new series By A.J. Rivers. (Great. All I need is to get hooked by another series.) I am grateful Roostertalked me into buying my new Kindle tablet.

This old woman’s opinion

This old lady’s opinion is thanksgiving is a matter of choice. Even in the darkness, we can choose to seek the light. My blessings may not be the same as yours because I’m old. We all share this planet and breath the same air. We are blessed to have contact with one another. I believe we can all relate to the blessings in life, even during a pandemic. Covid-19 is a tragic landmark in our human experience., but 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.
