A to Z Challenge: T is for Thankful
I'm a believer in counting my blessings. Every year in November I participate with many other people on Facebook in posting a daily message of gratitude. The first year I did it I found that focusing on what was right in my life made me a happier person. Since then I've made a habit of noticing the abundance of goodness in my life. I'm grateful for blessings large and small.
I allow myself to bask in enjoyment of new socks. Who knew that new socks could be such a pleasure? ...and I'm grateful.
Yesterday I drove to the Tri-Cities to visit a friend at the hospital. On the drive I tuned the satellite radio to the Broadway channel and sang along to the show tunes....with NO commercials! I'd be a fool to not appreciate this blessing. Joyful music lifted my spirit and made the drive enjoyable.
Every day I am grateful to be retired and have the ability to choose how I spend my time. The freedom of choice is a gift that I appreciate every day.
Life is good, and I am Thankful.
