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 tragedies 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 202 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 202 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 202 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful Rooster is matching his boxer shorts with his t-shirts in an attempt to spice up our love life. In August, we will be married for 48 years. It’s important to change things up every once in a while when you’ve been together that long. We all know how proud a rooster can be regarding his plumage. Who says an old bird can’t learn new tricks. I am grateful Rooster still has a little fire left in him. He’ll chase me around the nursing home in a few years, crowing his fool head off.
This old hen loves her rooster.
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.

Thank you Molly. I appreciate your words of encouragement. It helps to look for the light and be the light.
Thanks again. We never know when ourr words may encourage another 😊
An especially last cable post 🤗
Okay ~ that comment was supposed to read “especially lovable.” I don’t know about yours, but my spell check has a big problem leaving the word “love” as it is. Sorry for the confusion!
No worries. spell check always has its issues.
Oh, boy, don’t even get me started on the embarrassing mistakes … ! 😱🤣
I know, right.
“Don’t neglect to see the good things before your face because you hear the world is falling apart. ” Haha, so true. I can’t help feeling that the world is falling apart, at least at the seam or at its weakest link.
Thank you. We are living in strange times.
Absolutely wonderful! And Congratulations on 48!!
