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 113 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 113 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 113 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for the week we had with our son. I miss him now that he is gone. We spent a lot of quality time with him while he was at home. He stayed at his sister’s house because she had a spare room. He worked from home every day while he was here, but he had the evenings when we could hang out. His visit created many precious family memories. I hope he comes back soon.
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.

I’m always so grateful when I get to see my daughters 💖💖
It is hard when they live so far away. Thank you for reading.
You’re so right!! We all have a reason or the other to be grateful in life. For example, I am grateful that I learnt how to overcome pain from an early age. It’s helping me today.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Pain is a hard thing to overcome.
I think gratitude brings us closer to God, thankfulness is wonderful to all involved; closer to godliness than cleanliness :).
You’re welcome my friend.
