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 240 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 240 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
laptop keyboard is working again. I hate to have computer problems. Also, I’m not too fond of computer updates because they always change stuff I don’t want to be changed. I don’t particularly appreciate getting a new computer or cell phone because I have to remember countless passwords and know how to get the stuff the way I had before. Plus, Rooster and I get on one another’s nerves when we have computer problems because we both think we know more about the subject than we do. . Yesterday, when my keyboard stopped working, I thought, here I go again.
Rooster and I went online to see if there was a fix for the dead keyboard. We tried everything the Goggle sites recommended. I finally hooked up an old keyboard from a desktop model that I didn’t throw away. It wasn’t the perfect solution, but I thought I could at least work with it for a while. When I turned on the machine this morning, my keyboard worked as if there had never been a problem. Go figure. I am grateful my keyboard decided to come back to life.
This old lady is happy her keyboard started working.
I have 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.
