52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 10

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.

I recently saw some images of sailboats that reminded me of my longtime friendship with Connie and Ginny.

NEW SAILBOAT

At one time we were three magnificent sailboats.  Our sails caught the wind sharply and our hull gleamed with fresh paint.

Now after having navigated the happy and sad seas of life our sails have been mended many times and the paint on our craft has faded but still maintains a beautiful patina that cannot be reproduced without having lived a long life.

OLD SAILBOAT

And I give thanks that we still have our friendship and we are still sailing our own boats.

 

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. We’ve seen it all, tried it all, and even done it all.  I am so grateful that we’ve been through it together.

Thank you for joining me today,
