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.
Last week was my departed mother-in-law’s birthday. I have been thinking about her for the last several days and have been surprised to find that I have been thinking about her with real affection. I started to notice lately when I would tell stories about Linda that I have been telling those tales with a greater and greater appreciation for this woman whose strength was only vanquished by death. Things were not always easy between the two of us. Linda was a very strong woman and it was very evident to all who knew her. But in my own quiet way, I am a very strong woman and, well, the two of us didn’t always see eye to eye. But it seems in the years since her death, that both of us have been released from the tension of two strong wills clashing and it nows occurs to me that we can at last be friends. I am very thankful to be her friend at last. “How life catches up with us and teaches us to love and forgive each other.” Judy Collins
My mother-in-law, Linda:
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. “Love involves a peculiar unfathomable combination of understanding and misunderstanding.” Diane Arbus
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.
PLEASE ADD YOUR POST AND TOGETHER WE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.
