March crept up on me. I was so captivated by the cold days of February that I almost allowed the pages of the calendar to turn unnoticed. That would have been a shame. I’m still plugging away at my 2022 blogging challenge. Each day I am discovering new ways that my life is blessed. Despite all the tragedy and drama in the world, I am discovering I have so much to be thankful for in my life. The trick is to find those blessings in the mundane. Thus, I am enjoying my 365 days of thankfulness challenge. I start my day searching for some way to express appreciation for those things in my life that I sometimes overlook. The events or things might seem small and insignificant, but they add up to a giant pile of blessings when putting them all together. I’ve never attempted to express gratitude as the primary subject of my writing. This post covers day sixty-one of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Sixty-One of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day sixty-one of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for the slow, steady rain falling this morning. I noticed it wasn’t snow or the misty sleet we get around here during winter. A hint of snow or falling temperatures made my heart feel happy. Could this mean we have a promise of an early spring? I will be happy to have this dark winter in my rearview mirror. Spring means the coat can go into storage, and the motorcycle can get back on the road. I am grateful to have a long ride in the country to look forward to in my near future.
The old lady speaks….
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. I bet if you dig deep, you can come up with something to be thankful for today. Part of the problem with modern life is we neglect to see the small things that make up our common human experience. Thankfulness is an adventure we can all enjoy together. Would you please leave a comment and share with me some of the things you are thankful for today.
