52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 8

52weekw

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD.

I invite you to come and join me on this pilgrimage to change the world through thankfulness.  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.

It is that time of the year in New Jersey when the produce is bursting from the farmer’s market stands and is filled with such flavor.  The aroma and the beauty of the tomatoes and peaches fills my heart with such gratitude to be alive and relishing this bounty.

Earth who gives to us this food.

Sun who makes it ripe and good.

Dearest Earth and Dearest Sun.

We’ll not forget what you have done

Christian Morgenstern

 

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. If the only prayer you ever say in your life is thank you, it will be enough (Meister Echart).

Thank you for joining me today,

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.

    I lived in Burlington County, NJ (Moorestown, Delran and Maple Shade, and I taught in Mt. Laurel) for 12 years. I have now lived away from there for 14 years. Every summer I lament the loss of good tomatoes. In fact, I don’t eat them anymore unless I am getting them at a farm stand in August or September. They are not nearly as good, nor as abundantly available as Jersey tomatoes, but they are better than the tasteless sponges we get otherwise. So today I am joining you in thankfulness for yummy tomatoes.

  2. Oh I do miss Jersey corn, tomatoes, and peaches. I never really appreciated them until I lived other places and realized that corn, tomatoes, and peaches are not all created equal. That fresh produce in Jersey has flavor and attitude truly unique to Jersey. A lovely post to be savored. Thank you. 🐞
