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 I went to a wedding and saw two enchanting young people pledge to join their lives together and embark in their tiny boat of marriage to sail the seas of life.  Their hands are young and strong and perhaps together they will create a new tiny set of hands and bring more love into life.

This week I went to a funeral of a kind and generous man.  A man who was taken from the loving arms of his family and friends too early.  His hands were old but still strong.  He has left his wife alone to sail the sea of life and she will miss him.  They brought into life two new sets of hands and so his sons have added more love to the world.

“The more we love the more we lose. The more we lose the more we learn. The more we learn the more we love. It comes full circle. Life is the school, love is the lesson. We cannot lose.”
― Kate McGahan

I am thankful to be a part of this heartbreakingly beautiful circle of life.

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. “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.”  Ecclesiastes

Thank you for joining me today,
