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 fifty-seven of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Fifty-Seven of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day fifty-seven of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for a quiet day at home with Rooster and the granddaughters. We are deep into winter now, and adventures are hard to find. The festivals won’t start until the spring. We’ve exhausted the children’s museums close to home. Plus, some places haven’t opened up from all the COVID closures. Sometimes, the best day can be found on your living room couch. It’s free, and the girls got new tablets for Christmas. These electronic devices made the day enjoyable.
Spring is right around the corner, and we’ll be hitting all the festivals within driving distance again. Our son gave the new addition to our adventure team the nickname Bossy Posse. So, I guess they will determine our adventure destinations for 2022. I can’t wait to see the destinations we travel to and the fun we will experience.
