Another month in 2022 is in my rearview mirror on my road to express thankfulness. This adventure sometimes becomes challenging, but I’m discovering many things to be thankful for daily. 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 350 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 350 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 350 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful that Rooster and I got over our disagreement. It is usual for us to have one big argument a year. It helps to blow away any cobwebs of disagreement that have built up since our last fight. We don’t get nasty or throw things. It is usually over something simple. He says I was name-calling, but I don’t think saying he was obsessive-compulsive regarding the issue we were fighting about was outrageous. He was being obsessive, so I think I was fighting fair. One of the granddaughters told him he might as well give in since I was the boss of him anyway. She was right. Our mad lasted until the afternoon of the following day when Rooster agreed with me. I m grateful we got our 2022 argument out of the way.
This old lady is glad Rooster and I got our yearly fight out of the way before Christmas.
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.
