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-seven of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day ninety-seven of my 365 days of thankfulness
On day ninety-seven of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for seeing the first blooms of spring sprouting on the trees and bushes. This change is another sign that warm temperatures are on the way. That means motorcycle rides and sitting in the backyard around the burn barrel will be a daily part of my near future. Homegrown tomatoes will appear at the local food stands. I hate the paper-tasting ones they have at the grocery store. I can’t wait to experience the lazy days of summer.
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.
