52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 31

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.

This past week found me thinking about many, many issues dealing with women’s rights.  A lot of this musing, of course, was provoked by the Women’s March on Washington.  I was out to dinner a few nights before the March and the whole validity of the March was challenged because of one unsubstantiated allegation of non inclusiveness.  As I started to defend the importance of the March, my husband eloquently sprung to its defense and the need for women’s rights to be brought to forefront of our nation’s leaders.  I am so thankful for the support of my husband, Dom.

 From the Merriam Webster Dictionary 

feminism
noun fem·i·nism \ˈfe-mə-ˌni-zəm\
Definition of feminism for English Language Learners
: the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities

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. <!–

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. I love the change we can make by appreciating what we’re glad about and want more of. I’m having trouble joining. When I click on the button, I see this message: ‘Collection opens in 22h 42m. Let other people know about it through twitter.’ Any tips on what I can try?
