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 positive change. 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 234 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 234 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 234 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful we found the perfect roadside motel to spend the night. Another thing about traveling on a motorcycle centers around the negative stereotypes some people have when it comes to bikers. You get strange looks when you walk through the lobby, ready to ride. Finding a place to sleep can become a problem. Either they want to charge an outrageous rate, like the first motel we spent the night wanted to charge for an extended stay, or they tell you they are full. We met some people at a lighthouse that gave us a tip about a motel with clean rooms. When we got there, we called the phone number, tapped on the door, and knew we were in the right place when we were told they were in Cleveland at bike night. The lady said the key was in the door and we could pay her tomorrow. I am grateful for Lake Point Motel.

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.
