52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 25

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.

On Sunday I started to reflect upon my week and what I would write about for this column. ¬†I had many things to be thankful for: ¬†my good friend is starting real recuperation, I had an encounter with a call center that,¬†although I didn’t get the desired result, ended with my feeling very thankful to the person on the other line for her efforts,¬†and this week I encountered a family situation that could have been disastrous but everyone acted in good faith and the results of the encounter were very positive.

But when I woke up I found a post from Ellen at Ellen’s Best about the homeless. ¬†Reading her post really made me take the time to reflect about my own behavior. ¬†I want to thank Ellen for writing this thoughtful post because it is an aspect of living that I haven’t thought about or examined for a long time. ¬†If you get a moment this week please take the time to read Ellen’s post. ¬†¬†Here is the link: https://www.ellenbest24.wordpress.com/2016/12/11/who-can-hear-you/

“The real gift of gratitude is that the more grateful you are, the more present you become.” ¬†Robert Holder

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.

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,
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.
