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 ninety of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Ninety of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day ninety of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for the great report I received from my doctor. Bloodwork doesn’t lie. The changes rooster and I made to our diet and going to the gym paid off big time. I managed to lose 12 pounds, and my blood pressure reading was 117/70. That’s not bad for an old lady. My A1C came back at 6.3, close to the five range, and my cholesterol level is good. Rooster received similar numbers. We managed to reduce those comorbidities significantly. Reducing the number of medications we take is our end goal. If we can do it, anyone can. I am grateful we both received good news from the doctor.
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.
