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-three of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Eighty-Three of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day eighty-three of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful we found something to put the giant television Rooster picked out on when it arrives. The screen on our television is getting dark. The shadow appears from left to right. I am not a big television watcher because I don’t have time in my day to waste on most of the programs they have on right now. I do like to relax in the evening from time to time. This pleasurable entertainment option becomes important when I finish with one book and haven’t gotten deep into reading another one. Television satisfies my deepened for a story.
Operating on the theory bigger is better, Rooster went for the seventy-inch television. Big problem. We had to find a large piece of furniture to place the larger television. After hours of searching every store in town, Rooster found the perfect television stand online. (I got six miles of walking steps in on two days last week.) I am grateful for the answer to the problem. Now the question becomes will it fit into the same space where the defective one sat, or will I need to move the room around?
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.
