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 118 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 118 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 118 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful one of Old Granddaddy’s offspring waited in the front yard to welcome us home. I don’t know why seeing this wayward groundhog made me feel happy. It might have been because the creature’s appearance reminds me summer isn’t far away. Plus, it lets me know the more things change the more they stay the same. Maybe I was simply glad the ugly family survived the winter. It could be I’m looking forward to another groundhog was. The battle always supplies entertainment as I watch the events unfold. These critters could even supply an alternative food source if prices keep rising in the store. That would require us the challenge of catching one first. They have proven to be elusive. Does anyone know a good groundhog recipe?
This old lady speaks her mind…
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.
