52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 14

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.

During my walk on Sunday my mind turned to the political debate tonight.  I experienced a feeling of sadness because I knew that the debate would only add to the negative energy that has plagued our country for months.  But as I walked along I started to notice these simple things:

books

A HONORS BOOKCASE TO BENEFIT THE ANIMAL ASSOCIATION.

window-sign

A SIGN IN THE WINDOW OF THE LOCAL GROCERY WISHING TEACHERS AND STUDENTS WELL.

plumber

A PLUMBER WHO DECORATED HIS WINDOW JUST TO MAKE THE PASSER BYES SMILE.

hawk

A RED TAILED HAWK WAITING TO GREET ME ON THE SIDEWALK.

I give thanks for all these reminders that “There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy (or rhetoric).”  apologies to William Shakespeare.

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. “Tis a gift to be simple, tis a gift to be free.” Shaker Song by Joseph Brackett.

Thank you for joining me today,
bernadette

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.

  1. Lovely post, Bernadette! 😀 What a welcome from the hawk, wonderful and the shop display had me smiling. Hold on to summer as long as possible. I know, most will watch the debate with a heavy heart, knowing in advance the negativity and vitriolic language…hard times indeed for your country and the repercussions could be felt worldwide.
