MY WEEKLY THANK YOU NOTE TO GOD. THANK YOU RUTH AYERS FOR MAKING THIS SPACE AVAILABLE.

This is the second week of my kindness challenge and the challenge was to observe act of kindness in my everyday life.

It is amazing what a change in my mental framework the effort of focusing on becoming aware of the little acts of kindness that abound in an ordinary day.  The end of this week has left me feeling elated.  My soul and heart have been fed by these acts of kindness.

“The Little Gardner” Emily Hughes

I am going to share this poem by Ronald Wallace that splendidly illustrates my feelings.

“Blessings”

Blessings
occur.
Some days I find myself
putting my foot in
the same stream twice;
leading a horse to water
and making him drink.
I have a clue.
I can see the forest
for the trees.

All around me people
are making silk purses
out of sows’ ears,
getting blood from turnips,
building Rome in a day.
There’s a business
like show business.
There’s something new
under the sun.

Some days misery
no longer loves company;
it puts itself out of its.
There’s rest for the weary.
There’s turning back.
There are guarantees.
I can be serious.
I can mean that.
You can quite
put your finger on it.

Some days I know
I am long for this world.
I can go home again.
And when I go
I can
take it with me.

Wishing you a week where everything goes right,

bernadette

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.
