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 356 of my 365 days of thankfulness.
Day 356 of my 365 Days of Thankfulness
On day 356 of my 365 days of thankfulness, I am grateful we’ll drive to the airport and pick up my son today. I hope his flight and our drive beat the massive winter storm moving in our direction. The roads could be slippery and the ride rough. I know we will have a good time regardless of the weather. With any luck, we’ll make it home before the snow starts to fall. The time on the road will be spent catching up on everything that has happened since June, when my son visited the last time. I am grateful for him coming home for the holidays. I am posting my thankfulness blogs ahead of time because of the storm moving into our area. There is a good chance we will lose power, and i’ve committed to 365 days of thankfulness and would hate to blow it at the end. A positive frame of mind should help us make it through the blizzard. I only have one word for those people praying for a white Christmas. STOP.
This old lady is preparing for a rough ride.
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.
