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.
This morning finds me pondering friendship. I have found that with some people our friendship just grows through the years like a beautiful pine – evergreen. And, unfortunately, I have found that with others our friendship is like a tree that grows in fits and starts. Some years it puts out an abundance of fresh green leaves and other years it is barren depending on the environment.
I have had the fits and starts relationship with J for many years. This past year has been more fits than starts. She has an enormous problem burdening her and I have been saddened by my inability to be a better friend to her.
But Saturday night, just by happenstance, we were thrown together and had an opportunity to open our hearts to each other. I am so very thankful to have had this opportunity to express my love and concern.
“A friend may be often found and lost, but an old friend can never be found, and nature has provided that he cannot easily be lost.” James Johnson
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.
PLEASE ADD YOUR POST AND TOGETHER WE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.
