Day Sixty-Six of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

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. I start my day searching for moments of appreciation in my life. The events or things might seem small and insignificant, but they add up to a giant pile of blessings. I’ve never attempted to express gratitude as the primary subject of my writing. This post covers day sixty-six of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day Sixty-Six of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day sixty-six of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for the people who know how to fix things. Where would we be in life if we didn’t have these handy folks around? We took my daughter and her tire to a local tire shop. The valve stem broke off her tire. It needed fixed.

The young man who did the repair knew a lot about tire safety. He held so much knowledge in his mind about tires, and he took pride in ho efficiently he did his job. He explained why she had the problem and what to do to ensure she didn’t have it again. This young man took his job seriously. He knew fixing the tire right made everyone riding in my daughter’s car safe. The company he works for doesn’t pay him enough for his level of expertise. Today I’m thankful for the people in my life who can fix things.

This 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.

  1. That’s so wonderful of you to show such thankfulness for folks that are truly undervalued. I’m thankful for the amazing soul that fixed our roof and didn’t charge us an arm and a leg!!!

  2. Such an awesome post, Molly! The people you’re thankful for are so often taken for granted. I admire you for giving them the recognition they so deserve. I think that, in our everyday lives, many of us don’t stop and think of how important these people are, the tire-fixer, the mechanic, the janitor. These people are so undervalued, but without them, the whole societal system would collapse! I’m thankful for those precious humans as well! πŸ’–πŸ’πŸŒΊπŸ•Š
