Day 191 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 191 of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day 191 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day 191 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for the existence of our local grocery store. It occurred to me today as I was shopping that I was standing in a wonderful place where there was an abundance of food I could select from to take home and eat. We Americans are spoiled with this form of luxury. Some of our shelves might be empty, but at least we have the opportunity to have a choice about our food. I don’t know if it will always be this way. I am grateful for my grocery store today.

This old lady is happy she can still buy food.

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 before your face because you hear the world is falling apart. Let me tell you a secret. The world always falls 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. Molly, thank you for sharing. I have read your post and this is my first time I believe to leave a comment. I so agree with you, I always have something to be grateful for each day and moment, if I get real about it all! I was in a car accident on June 15th, which is my sister’s birthday. I am so grateful that I am doing well, but I’m having moments where I have to really pull on my faith and tug hard on my grace/gratefulness! And, your post today really has blessed me! Thank you 🙏 💝

  2. It’s great to be thankful for the grocery store. It’s gratitude for food and most of what we use to keep ourselves and our families. Something (somewhere) not really to be taken for granted.
