52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 26

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.

Good day and thanks for coming along with me on this journey.  This has been a special week filled with many reasons for thankfulness.  I can start right here – this is week 26!  That means I have stayed faithful to this project for half of a year.  It was also week 52 of The Senior Salon – I had accomplished the goal I set for myselfof bringing together a community of artists with a little silver in their hair.  Since I have a way of starting a project and then dropping the project, I am so thankful to be able to sit here and type these words – that through perseverance and a lot of encouragement sent to me by the Universe, the snail reached the ark.

And somehow the Universe always knows how to celebrate.  After 52 weeks of being the faithful editor of the Senior Salon, I got to meet one of my contributors, Linda Bethea, (https://www.nutsrok.wordpress.com).  Linda was in Haddonfield this past week and made time in her busy schedule to meet me for breakfast.  What a splendid morning we had and what a gift to receive.  Thank you Linda for taking the time to visit with me.  It was the proverbial cherry on the top of my 52 week anniversary.

“For all that has been – thanks.  For all that will be – yes.”  Doug Hammarskjold

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.

  1. Such a wonderful experience…I’ve had the chance to break bread with Miss Linda. Lovely that you could meet up. Thanks for sharing the photo. And for introducing her to scrapple, Pennsylvania’s other white meat. 💚 💙 💜

  3. Bernadette, your work has brought so many people together to celebrate gratitude, women’s contributions, and the gifts of aging. Congratulations on such important work and the commitment and hard work it took to not only follow through with what you started but to also keep reaching for ever new creative ways to include others.
