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-six of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day Ninety-Six of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day ninety-six of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful to spend time with my characters today. These ladies have become some of my favorite people, even though they are figments of my imagination. Last year, I decided to go back to the first book I wrote and apply what I have learned on my writer’s journey. The plan consisted of blog posts to keep myself writing but focused on editing the books I’ve already finished. In November, I always participate in NaNoWriMo. That gave me one new book per year.
Naomi, Colleen, and Elba Mae have gotten me through hard times. I’ve gone through a lot of changes since I started playing with these invisible friends. Interesting things always happen when they come out to play.
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.
