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 105 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 105 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 105 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful that there are still honest people in the world who will do the right thing without expecting a thank you. Yesterday, my cell phone fell out of my pocket when I got into the car. Rooster and I went to the grocery store. I noticed my phone wasn’t in my pocket when we got home. The cold stuff needed to go into the fridge before we could rush back to find the device. The thing that bothered me wasn’t the cell phone but my driver’s and insurance card tucked in the side pouch. We discovered an honest person found it in the parking lot and turned it into the store office. I am grateful for the kindness of this stranger.
This old lady has something to say…
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.
