52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 20

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.

 

On Saturday Dom and I left Haddonfield with two very dear friends to visit New York City and see a show.

It started out like the perfect day.  The weather was perfect, there were no traffic jams on the New Jersey Turnpike, and we had a delicious leisurely lunch. A lot to be thankful for.  We walked over to the theatre and handed over our tickets.  Suddenly the ticket usher was on her intercom requesting assistance and we were pulled aside and told to wait.  Somehow, I had a feeling that we hadn’t won the Publisher’s Clearinghouse but couldn’t figure out what was the problem.  I was soon disabused of any happy scenarios that I was creating in my mind.  I had purchased the tickets for October 5 and today was November 5.  Horrors!

 I want to give thanks to my friends and husband for their good humor while the management of the theatre worked to resolve this mistake.  They were so gracious and seated us in wonderful seats and never accepted a penny of compensation.  I cannot tell you how many times I said thank you.

Oh, by the way, the show is fantastic.  It is a delightful send up of Broadway musicals and Shakespeare.  When the show ended I was even more thankful for not having missed it.

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. “You didn’t have to do what you did, I thank you.”  Sam and Dave.

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.

 Thank you for joining me today,

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. Oh how embarrassing for you, glad it worked out and you all had a wonderful evening. I think you’ve read my Mother’s Day post about how my teenage son got the wrong Sunday and I ended up having two Mother’s Days being spoilt with my favourite breakfast and film (Butch Cassidy at the time!) 😊
