Day Eighty-Two 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 eighty-two of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day Eighty-Two of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day eighty-two of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for the WordPress bloggers I have encountered over the past three years. I learn something new from these creative people every day. I spend a portion of my morning reading blogs, posting a short comment, so the person behind the blog I’m reading knows I appreciate their work. WordPress bloggers are some of the most creative and generous people. There is an art to blogging, and the ones that have been doing it a while are generous with advice. I am grateful to be part of an amazing community of bloggers.

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. I agree, my WordPress blogging friends are wonderful! I am also very thankful for them. They got me through the pandemic! And thank you for these great posts.

  2. Hi Molly,
    I am also very thankful for the friends here in blogland. I had taken a long break, and during that time, Covid entered. I started blogging again and it was a blessing. There are friends to make, but there is also a lot to learn in regards to writing.
    But I am most thankful for my family, though it sounds cliche. We flew to VA last week to see our son for the first time since he left the nest last year. We’ve stayed cautious and healthy, so we haven’t ventured onto an airplane until now. Our daughter and SIL drove up from TN. Our son showed us the sites, history, history, and more history. Beautiful parks and rivers. But as you mentioned, it’s the simple things that can be even more special, like the times the 5 of us just hung out in his new apt. He was an awesome host, and those moments in their entirety warmed my heart and my husband’s. Seeing our kids together. Feeling so proud of them now in their adulting years. Yes, I am beyond grateful.
    We live on the west coast, which is why being together means even more…lovely post and message.
    Thank you, Lauren
