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 week finds me thinking about my youngest son, Stephen. All of my sons hold their own special place in my heart and Stephen’s place is the baby. Obviously, from what I just said he is my youngest child. From the very start Steve’s easy smile and sweet temperament made him very easy to be loved by me and by everyone else who met him. With Steve I marked all the endings of a mother’s journey – no more sweet baby smell, no more walks in a stroller, no more short pants, no more preschool art projects, no more Santa Claus, etc and etc. And I marked all the last beginnings – first grade, little league, singing in a choir, first dance, middle school, driver’s license, high school graduation. I am thankful that Steve and I shared all those fleeting, enchanting moments. And I am very thankful to have the opportunity to visit Steve this week. I have missed him.

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.
