I believe in the power of positive group energy. Perhaps if enough of us join together we can change the negative climate that exists and is overtaking our planet. Together we can move our fellow citizens of to a better, higher and finer place.

At the end of the post you will find a link up frog and I hope you will join me on this venture and once a week write a post and link up to others and share what you are thankful for this week.

Having lost a dear friend just recently this week my thoughts go to being thankful for the gift of friendship.  I don’t think anyone said on their deathbed that they regretted the time spent with friends.

A Time To Talk – Poem by Robert Frost

When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don’t stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven’t hoed,
And shout from where I am, What is it?
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.

This week I am acutely aware that when friendship calls that I should heed the call because time is a wasting.

I hope that by writing these posts that we will move together beyond thankfulness into appreciation. Because appreciation for the moments and things for which we give thanks requires us to be mindful of our lives. Thankfulness is an expression of our appreciation for life. Sometimes we get so focused on life’s challenges that we lose sight of being grateful for simply having a life to live.

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.

  1. I am sorry to hear about your friend. Best wishes to you, and sending you loads of positive vibes. I agree with you in that positive energy is a great thing. Together, we can encourage each other along and make each other smile. With positivity, there is hope and when there is hope, anything seems possible.


  2. Isn’t life interesting! I just posted my monthly theme for Circle of Friends on Sunday – Absent/Lost friends. And my own response to it today, a reminiscing about a friend who passed some years ago whose memory still brings a smile to our faces. I shared it on Senior’s Salon 🙂
