52 WEEKS OF THANKFULNESS – WEEK 44 – CELEBRATING WORLD BOOK DAY

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.

Welcome to 52 Weeks of Thankfulness a day earlier.  But today World Book Day is being celebrated in the U.S.  Books have been such an enormously important part of my life that I had to combine my thankfulness for the gifts of writers with celebrating the years of joy reading has brought to me.  Books have been my constant companion on this whirlwind we call life.  Books have made me happy, brought me to tears, taught me life lessons and opened vistas of the world that I will probably never visit.  Books have been the boon companion of my life and I am hugely thankful for whoever it was that put the first book in my hands and set me off on this lifelong love affair.

 

“If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar
A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer
If youre a pretender com sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in!
Come in!”  Shel Silverstein

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.
