Day 158 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

Another month in 2022 is in my rearview mirror on my road to express thankfulness. This adventure sometimes becomes a challenging task, but I’m discovering so many things to be thankful for each day. Focusing on the positive despite all the tragedy in the world makes me happy. It motivates me to work toward a positive change and being grateful drives away fear. I can see so many potholes in the road, but I start my day searching for the blessings in my life. These events or things might seem small and insignificant, but they add up to a giant pile of happiness at the end of the road. I am inviting you to come along for the ride. Why don’t we all travel the road of gratefulness in June? This post covers day 158 of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day 158 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day 158 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for spontaneous opportunities that sometimes come in life. I believe the big trick requires a person to recognize these blessings when they happen. These opportunities sometimes require a person to take a risk. Things can always go wrong, and the bad economy makes taking a chance dangerous. People will talk because they always do when attempting to do something outside of the box. Who cares? I am still grateful for spontaneous opportunities.

This old lady likes spontaneity.

This old lady has learned thanksgiving is a matter of choice. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. Even in dark places, it is good 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. Don’t neglect to see the good things right in front of your face because you hear the world is falling apart. Let me tell you a secret. The world is always falling apart when you focus on the doom and gloom. You won’t always find thankfulness an easy road, but it’s an adventure we can all take together. What are you thankful for today? Leave a comment, and bless my heart. I  am not being sarcastic when I say that. I could use the encouragement as much as the next person.

  1. I am thankful for the fact that despite my great-grandmother has been gone now for decades, I can still feel her hands as I knead the daily bread. I am thankful that daily I use the skills she taught me. I am thankful that we have this homestead and a strong marriage. I stood washing dishes today and marveled that my great-grandmother had a 4th grade education taught me to read before I went to school. My Grammy Doris fueled my path to higher education.
