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-three of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Ninety-Three of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day ninety-three of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful my son-in-law wasn’t hurt when his car was stolen. He stopped at a convenience store on his way home from work. While he was inside making a purchase, someone stole his car. The perp led the police on a high-speed chase before ending up in a muddy ditch. Fortunately, none of his tools went missing. He uses this second car for work. It is an old vehicle, so it wasn’t worth much. The chase made Facebook as people tracked all the commotion through our small city. It made us late going to Friday night dinner, and the impound lot wants five hundred dollars for him to get the car back. He told them they could keep it as long as he got his tools. I am grateful that he was okay.
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.

Thank goodness he’s all right. And he has his tools. And why should the victim be further victimized by having to pay impound costs? Taxes should cover that.
It became a big deal. The chief of police even got involved. The city won’t be using the tow service any longer. He did get his car back, but it was in bad shape.
Well, it should have gone much more smoothly for him.
You are right.
Wait ~ his car gets stolen and he has to pay to get it back? Where has justice disappeared to among us?
I know. They should have made the guy who stole it pay.
