Day 209 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 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 209 of my 365 days of thankfulness.  

Day 209 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness

On day 209 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful for the World Wide Web. I don’t understand the first thing about the internet, but I am so glad it exists. Being able to go online has opened up the world for me. I wish this pathway to the world had existed for me years ago. Sometimes I feel like I’m playing catch-up when learning about all the opportunities at my fingertips. I remember learning to type on an old Underwood typewriter. Computers were the size of a large room. Now, I can respond to social media on my cell phone in the palm of my hand. I am grateful for the internet and the world it opened up for me.

This old lady likes to go online

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. I know ~ remember when sending out a manuscript involved ribbons, corrector, paper, xerox shop, postage, return postage, and months or years of delay during which we couldn’t offer it to anyone else ~ BEFORE the contracts, editors and promotional tours? Now I sit in my van, compose, edit, illustrate, and send the work directly to its readers!

    The WWW was conceived on a mescaline trip, did you know that?

    1. No, I didn’t know that, and i do remember those days. I’m a horrid typist. I never got through the process without White Out all over the page.
