52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 34

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.

I have been thinking about our President this week.  And I was mentally preparing to write about what a killing field for friendship his election has become.  And then, twice in one day, I found myself speaking to strangers about the President and our country.  These conversations with strangers were filled with so much heart and a huge amount of insight.  These conversations filled my heart with hope for the future and for that I am thankful.

“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.”
― Maya Angelou

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. Very nice reminder, Bernadette, and what a great quote by Maya Angelou to help sum it up! I am always amazed at how often I am confronted with goodness in the world, usually just as a mood of despair attempts to take me over. Those moments often come to me by way of people who represent all shapes, sizes, and nationalities. I’ve learned that acts of kindness can come from anyone, whether we agree on politics or not.

  2. I’m so excited to read what you wrote about finding conversations about the President can actually be an opportunity to grow and create friendship! Gives me such hope and sense of empowerment. Love and wisdom is stronger and more sustaining than fear and shame.
