52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 12

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.

THIS WEEK WAS A ROUGH ONE.  I HAD TO DEAL WITH A HARD PERSONAL PROBLEM WITH A LOVED ONE.  PART OF THE DIFFICULTY WITH THE PROBLEM IS THE DISTANCE THAT HE LIVES FROM ME.  SO, I MUST LIVE WITH THE FRUSTRATION OF LONG DISTANCE UNCERTAINTY.  I THINK THAT A VERY SMALL PART OF THESE SITUATIONS IS A LESSON FOR ME.  EVERY TIME, I HAVE BEEN DESPERATE A STRANGER HAS WALKED INTO THE PROBLEM AND HELPED.

MY THOUGHTS ALSO WENT TO THE ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11.  I REMEMBERED  ALL THE STORIES OF GOOD PEOPLE WHO HELPED EACH OTHER OUT OF THOSE BURNING TOWERS AND THE FIRST RESPONDERS WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES HELPING STRANGERS.

 THIS WEEK I GIVE A HEARTFELT THANK YOU FOR THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS.

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. “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.” Oscar Wilde

Thank you for joining me today,

PLEASE ADD YOUR POST AND TOGETHER WE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.

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 agree, one kind something can change so much, I certainly hope to experience something good since it’s been a one way street so far. It is amazing how there are always people who will rescue us, help when we are down and these people definitely deserve respect and admiration.

  2. Three of my children and my three grandchildren live 2000 miles away from me so I can sympathize with you Bernadette. It is so very difficult.. The only thing that keeps me sane during moments like those is my faith and prayers. I will pray for you as well, and your loved one. – ❤
